Seismic load on retaining wall

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

Is there any method used to estimate the seismic load on a retaining wall that is restrained for lateral movement? This wall is buried and is restrained by a concrete slab on top and a mat foundation at the bottom. I assume that under this condition, active pressures cannot develop, hence the Mononobe-Okabe method cannot be used. Am I right?. This wall is also below phreatic surface.
I will appreciate your input.
