Seismic stability of retaining walls with surcharge

Such approach, already utilized for walls without surcharge , is extended to evaluate the seismic stability of gravity retaining walls with a surcharge resting on the backfill. The basic difference between the solution presented herein and traditional methods is that the former takes into account the normal and shear forces mobilized at the base of the wall which the latter methods usually neglect.

STABILITY OF RETAINING WALL UNDER SEISMIC LOAD: A REVIEW

Keywords: Retaining Wall, Seismic Load, Stability INTRODUCTION A wall designed to maintain a difference in the elevations of the ground surfaces on either side of the wall is called a retaining wall. It is a very common civil engineering structure and is extensively used in railways, bridges, canals and other engineering works.
