Gravity Wall Analysis

Documento Imprimible (.pdf)

Before you analyze any retaining wall make sure you have an accurate picture of the job site conditions. Every retaining wall must be engineered to withstand the pressure from the soils and other loads behind and above them. Standard gravity wall analysis considers sliding, bearing and overturning forces. On sites with slopes and surcharges, a global stability check will also be necessary.

Sliding

Ability of the structure to overcome the horizontal force applied to the wall.

Factor de Seguridad = 1.5
Deslizamiento



Overturning

Ability of the structure to overcome the overturning moment created by the rotational forces applied to the wall.

Factor de Seguridad = 1.5
Vuelco



Bearing Capacity

Ability of the underlying soil to support the weight of the structure.

Factor de Seguridad = 2.0
Capacidad de Soporte



Global Stability

Ability of the internal strength of the soil to support the complete soil mass. Contact local design specialist for help in evaluating your site.
Estabilidad Global



Other Considerations :
  • Slopes
  • Surcharges
  • Terraces
