Seismic Forces on Retaining Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There were some postings regarding seismic forces on retaining walls.
Using the methods and research available, the forces can get pretty big
and the magnitudes mentioned in the previous e-mail don't seem out of
line (whether or not you agree with the assumptions and methods used in
generating those numbers)

A couple of good references that outline many popular methodologies are
available from the Army Corps of Engineers.

Check out EM 1110-2-2502 which can be found at
