Design of retaining walls for seismic forces


ASCE 7-05 under section 15.6,1  stated that the lateral load due to earthquake  be determined and it also referred to  section 11.8.3 of  ASCE 7-05 for requiring a soils report .


Section 11.8.3 subsequently mandates that for seismic design categories D through F the geotechnical report is required for determination of lateral pressures on retaining walls due to earthquake motion.


2 question have arsine:


1. good and simple examples for engineers to use for design of retaining walls for seismic forces

2. required soil report for every retaining wall


Your input is appreciated
