Distribution Width for Concentrated Load on Concrete Wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I’m designing a C.I.P. concrete cantilevered retaining wall. I’m trying to find the distribution width for a concentrated load at the top of the wall. So far, I’m unsuccessful. In masonry, it’s called a “flush wall pilaster” and there is clear direction if the wall is masonry.


Is concrete the same as masonry in this regard?
