Course description

In Retaining Walls for Non-Geotechnical Engineers , you'll learn ...

  • Definition of retaining walls and the different types commonly used
  • Categories of lateral earth pressure, including the at rest, active and passive conditions
  • Calculating lateral earth pressure coefficients using the Rankine and Coulomb theories
  • Calculating the total active earth pressure force

Overview

Credit: 2 PDH

Length: 12 pages

This course is intended for a wide range audience and in particular, the non-geotechnical engineer and is not intended as an exhaustive review of the subject. The objective of the course is to discuss the method of calculating the active earth pressure using the Rankine and Coulomb methods. The course also outlines the method used to calculate the factors of safety for sliding, overturning and bearing capacity, which are three elements required for retaining wall design. A basic example of the calculations for the Rankine method is provided.

When this course has been completed, the reader will be familiar with calculating the active earth pressure force and applying it to determine the factors of safety with respect to sliding, overturning and bearing capacity relating to retaining wall design.
