Therefore, submerged condition should be avoided by providing and maintaining proper drainage facilities [including provision of weep holes]. 2.

Mr = W (L – Xw) [as T = 0o] ii) Sliding: [Friction between base slab and supporting soil] F = μ.R [where, R = W ] R -> Resultant soil pressure at footing base μ -> Coefficient of static friction [0.35 – Silt & 0.60 – Rough rock] FOSsliding = 0.9 F ≥ 1.4 Pa CosT When Pa is very high, shear key projection can be provided below footing base [Produces passive resistance Pps, which is generally neglected, otherwise].

Preliminary proportioning of cantilever retaining wall: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The thickness of base slab is h/12 or 8% of the height of wall + surcharge. The base thickness of stem should be greater than the thickness of base slab The top thickness of stem should not be less than 150mm.
