Abstract:
An analytical method is presented whereby minimum width of horizontal base and its relative position can be found for any shape or loading of a cantilevered or counterforted retaining wall. The method is particularly applicable to loaded or unorthodox retaining walls such as in basements of some industrial buildings, ditch bunkers, and abutments.
