RCC Retaining Wall Design (Cantilever type) Excel Sheet



Cantilever retaining walls are the most common and widely used type of retaining wall. The following figure shows the cantilever retaining wall. Retaining walls are used in the construction of the basement below ground level, wing walls of bridge and to retain slopes in hilly terrain roads. The retaining wall can be constructed with masonry as well as reinforced concrete. In the case of masonry retaining wall, the thickness of the wall increases with height because masonry resists the lateral pressure by its weight. Thus it is also called gravity retaining wall. While the reinforced concrete retaining wall resists the lateral pressure by structural action such as bending and results in a thinner section.
