A retaining wall is a structure exposed to lateral pressures from the retained soil plus any other surcharges and external loads. All overall stability failure modes must be thoroughly checked, including the bearing capacity of the supporting soil. This article discusses the cantilever retaining wall calculation of the soil bearing pressures. Our software ASDIP RETAIN will

Column base plates are structural elements designed to spread the load in such a way that the bearing pressures at the support are within the allowable limits. Under the presence of biaxial moments, the base plates may be in partial bearing, leading to a complex design. This document is a step-by-step biaxial base plate example
