Retaining walls are used to hold back masses of earth or other
loose material where conditions make it impossible to let those
masses assume their natural slopes.
Function of retaining wall
Such conditions occur when the width of an excavation, cut,
or embankment is restricted by conditions of ownership, use of
the structure, or economy. For example, in railway or highway
construction the width of the right of way is fixed, and the cut orembankment must be contained within that width.
Similarly, the basement walls of the buildings must be located
within the property and must retain the soil surrounding thebase.

Free standing retaining walls, as distinct from those that form
parts of structures, such as basement walls, are of various types.
Types of retaining walls
The gravity retaining wall retains theearth entirely by its own weight and
generally contains no reinforcement. It
is used up to 10 ft height.
The reinforced concrete cantilever
retaining wall consists of the vertical arm
that retains the earth and is held in position
by a footing or base slab. In this case, the
weight of the fill on top of the heel, in
addition to the weight of the wall,contributes to the stability of the structure.
Since the arm represents a vertical
cantilever, its required thickness increase
rapidly, with increasing height. It is used inthe range of 10 to 20 ft height.

In the counterfort wall the
stem and base slab are tied
together by counterforts
which are transverse walls
spaced at intervals and act as
tension ties to support the
stem wall. Counterforts are of
half or larger heights.Counterfort walls are
economical for heights over
25 ft.
Types of retaining walls
Property rights or other restrictions sometimes make it necessary
to place the wall at the forward edge of the base slab, i.e. to omit
the toe. Whenever it is possible, toe extensions of one-third to
one-fourth of the width of the base provide a more economical
solution.
7/30/2019 55279382 Retaining Wall
5/59
A buttress wall is similar to a
counterfort wall except that
the transverse support walls
are located on the side of the
stem opposite to the retained
material and act as
compression struts. Buttress,
as compression elements,are more efficient than the
tension counterforts and are
economical in the same
height range.
Types of retaining walls
A counterfort is more widely used than a buttress because the
counterfort is hidden beneath the retained material, whereas the
buttress occupies what may otherwise be usable space in front of
the wall.

This is an free standing wall category. A wall type bridge abutment
acts similarly to a cantilever retaining wall except that the bridge
deck provides an additional horizontal restraint at the top of thestem. Thus this abutment is designed as a beam fixed at the
bottom and simply supported or partially restrained at the top.

1. Lateral earth pressure will be considered to be live loads and
a factor of 1.7 applied.
Basis of Structural Design
2. In general, the reactive pressure of the soil under the structure
at the service load stage will be taken equal to 1.7 times the soil
pressure found for service load conditions in the stability
analysis.
3. For cantilever retaining walls, the calculated dead load of the
toe slab, which causes moments acting in the opposite sense to
those produced by the upward soil reaction, will be multiplied by
a factor of 0.9.
7/30/2019 55279382 Retaining Wall
17/59
4. For the heel slab, the required moment capacity will be based
on the dead load of the heel slab itself, plus the earth directly
above it, both multiplied by 1.4.
5. Surcharge, if resent, will be treated as live load with load
factor of 1.7.
6. The upward pressure of the soil under the heel slab will be
taken equal to zero, recognizing that for severe over load stage
a non linear pressure distribution will probably be obtained, with
most of the reaction concentrated near the toe.

drainage and to prevent clogging.
ii. Longitudinal drains embedded in crushed stone or gravel,
along rear face of the wall.
iii. Continuous back drain consisting of a layer of gravel or
crushed stone covering the entire rear face of the wall with
discharge at the ends.

The actual termination point is found by extending beyond the
intersection of capacity moment line with the factored moment
diagram a distance of either the effective depth d or 12 bardiameters, whichever is greater.
So ut o
Thus half bars should be cut at 4-8 distance from bottom and
further half bars should be cut 8-8theoretically from bottom.

bar used # 9 of diameter = 1.128
12 db = 13.54 = 14
Therefore half bars should be terminated actually at4-8+15=15-11 from bottom
and further half bars should be terminated at
8-8+14 =910
For tension bars to be terminated in the tension zone, oneof the following condition must be satisfied.
2. Continuing bars must provide at last twice the area
required for bending moment at the cut off point.
1. Vu at the cut-off point must not exceed two-thirds of the
shear strength Vn.
3. Excess shear reinforcement is provided.

Condition (1) satisfied so bars can be terminated.
The above condition are imposed as a check stress concentration.
Shear at bottom = Vu = 1.7 x 9.53243 = 16.21 kips

Since Vc > Vu so no need of shear reinforcement.

The used should not be less than at any point. This
minimum limit, strictly speaking, does not apply to retaining
walls. However, because the integrity of retaining walldepends absolutely on the vertical walls, it appear prudent to
use this limit un such cases.

Another requirement is that maximum spacing of the primary
flexural reinforcement exceed neither 3 times the wall thickness
nor 18 in. These restrictions are satisfied as well.
For splices of deformed bars in tension, at sections where theratio of steel provided to steel required is less than 2 and where
no more than 50% of the steel is spliced, the ACI code requiresa class-B splice of length 1.3 ld.
ld for # 9 bars =29
Splice length = 1.3 29 = 37.7 or 3-2 O.K

Since front face is more exposed for temperature changes
therefore two third of this amount is placed in front face and one
third in rear face.

For vertical reinforcement on the front face, use any nominal
amount. Use # 3 @ 18 in. c/c
Since base is not subjected to extreme temperature changes,
therefore # 4@ 12 c/c just for spacers will be sufficient.
