Retaining Wall Surcharge

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Thank you Thomas. I have these documents in my electronic library, but completely forgot to look in them for information. Thank you for setting me straight.

I found the best information on strip loads and point loads in EM 1110-2-2502.

You can get the various types of surcharge loadings on your wall from the
Tri-Forces manual DM 7.02, "Foundations and Earth Structures" or the
Army's TM-5-818-1.

These are free downloads.  Try one of the following sites:
