RE: Cantilevered Retaining Wall - Rule of Thumb

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

Greetings!

Cal Trans has standard drawings for various heights.

 

One alternative is to support the wall on drilled cast in place concrete piers.  No toe or heel required.

Subject: Cantilevered Retaining Wall - Rule of Thumb

 

Greetings all-

 

Does anyone have a rule of thumb for proportioning propertyline cantilevedered retaining walls? My clients share a property line - one on the down slope who would like to minimize the size of the toe and the other up slope who would like to minimize the heel / size of the excavation. What to do??
