Re: Retaining Wall Rotation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Retain Pro computes wall "tilt" by the user inputting an assumed soil
modulus. The program then calculates rotation by geometry, based upon soil
pressure compression under the toe. Not precise, but considered reasonable.
The commentary suggests an "appearance batter" of 0.005H, which is about 1/2"
for an 8 foot wall.
