Except you don't really want uplift on those rear piles.  P/A should exceed
the Mc/I component.

	Or do you mean a cantilever retaining wall that SITS on piles (i.e.
the
	supporting soil ain't so great...yes, some lovely "not so proper"
English

	That is what I envisioned.  The front piles are in compression and
the rear piles are in uplift.  It works well with auger-cast piles.
