Tag: Passive Pressure During Earthquake Effect of Wall Lateral Displacement on the Design of Retaining Wall

It is the usual practice of some designers to ignore the inertia forces of the mass of the gravity retaining wall in seismic design. Richards and Elms (1979) have shown that this approach is unconservative since it is the weight of the wall which provides most of the resistance to lateral movement. Taking into account all the seismic forces acting
