Re: wind load to retaining wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Joe:
 
We design based on exposed height of wall.
 
If your wall is 12' high and 6' of retaining, then design for 6' of wind loading.
 
The wind load on the wall that pushes against the soil is neglected, only wall above the soil is dealt with..
