In this example, the structural design of thethree retaining wall components is performed by hand. Two equations are developed in thissection for determining the thickness & reinforcement required to resist the bending momentin the retaining wall components (stem, toe and heel).Equation to calculate effective depth, d: Three basic equations will be used to develop anequation for d.M u = M na M n = As f y d 2aM u = As f y d [ Eqn 1]2C = T , 0.85 f c a b = As f yf cAs = 0.85ab[ Eqn 2]fy 0.003 s + 0.003 a 0.003strain compatibility := ,=1 a / 1 d d s + 0.003Assuming 1 = 0.85,sa/d0.0050.319 0.00785 0.2350.0100.196and choosing a value for s in about the middle of the practical design range,a= 0.235, a = 0.235 d [ Eqn 3]d

Usually, the top-of-wall elevation is determined by the client. Thebottom-of-wall elevation is determined by foundation conditions. HT = 18 feet.2.
