Active Force on Retaining Walls with Earthquake Forces 2

Active Force on Retaining Walls with Earthquake Forces

The lateral Earth pressure due to earth pressure is the major force acting on the retaining wall.

Retaining walls support soil and other materials laterally. That is, retaining walls “retain” earth, keeping it from sliding. Retaining walls must resist overturning and sliding, and the pressure under the toe (front bottom edge of footing) should not exceed the bearing capacity of the soil.
