Classification of. Retaining walls. • Gravity wall-Masonry or Plain concrete. • Cantilever retaining wall-RCC. (Inverted T and L). • Counterfort retaining wall- RCC. Types of reinforced concrete retaining walls are cantilever retaining walls and counterfort retaining walls. Functions and parts of these retaining walls. In this type of retaining wall, counterforts (cantilevers) are provided on the earth side between wall and footing to support the wall, which essentially spans as a.

Probability, reliability and statistical methods in engineering de-sign. Cantilever Retaining Walls Design of Isolated Column Footing.

Counterfort retaining wall | architecture |

From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this retainimg. The more the height of the wall, the closer should be the spacing of counterforts. Sometimes the cantilever wall is constructed in the form of L. Depending upon the height H of the wall the top width of stem can vary between mm to mm.

Skip to search form Skip to main content. The size of the wall is so kept that there is no tensile stress developed at any section of the wall under any condition of loading. References Publications referenced by this paper. The material retained by the wall is generally known as backfill. If the water table is such that the retained soil remain fully submerged, in such a case the saturated soil results in increasing the weight of the backfill, decreases the angle of repose of the soil which ultimately amounts to increase in pressure on the wall.


Wall retaining submerged backfill.

Figure 3 from Reliability Analysis of Counterfort Retaining Walls – Semantic Scholar

It countegfort a common practice to neglect the passive resistance of the soil in front of the toe of the wall in this check. Design of RCC footing for Wall. The overturning moment is stabilized by the weight of wall and the weight of the soil above the heel slab the weight of soil over the toe is neglected.

The counterforts are provided behind the wall on the backfill side and are subjected retainkng tensile forces.

Topics Discussed in This Paper. The foundations of the retaining wall should be placed at such a depth where soil of required bearing capacity is available.


Wall retaining dry and levelled backfill: Prior to start of structural design of a retaining wall it is necessary to adopt some tentative dimensions for different components of the wall. Wall retaining dry and levelled backfill.

However suitable value of toe projection can be obtained from the relationship. Let the intensity of surcharge load per unit area be w. Design of Lintel with Sunshade.

This type of wall proves to be economical for moderate heights say 6 to 7m.


How could counterforts in counterfort retaining wall assist in resisting earth pressure?

The backfill may be horizontal i. The stability of the wall is partially provided by the weight of earth on the heel. Hence retaijing lateral earth pressure at the base of wall is given by.

In case the water table does not rise up to full height of retaining wall, this will result in a situation where the soil is partially submerged and partly counterforr. Structural Reliability Analysis and Design.

These walls are constructed in brick masonry, stone masonry or plain cement concrete and it is shown in Fig. If the factor of safety against sliding works out to be less than 1. Towards reliability-based design for geotechnical engineering Kok Kwang Phoon The intensity of lateral pressure countegfort the base of the wall in such a case is given by.

The maximum and minimum pressure are given by. Wall retaining partly submerged backfill: The base width b of the retaining wall vary between 0. Based on the walp of achieving stability, retaining walls are classified into the following types: Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental…. Design of One Way Slabs.
