Loads and Forces Acting on Retaining Wall and Their .
Surcharge loads Acting on Retaining Wall Surcharge loads acting on retaining walls are additional vertical loads that used to the backfill soil above the top of the wall. It can be either dead loads for example sloping backfill above the wall height or live load which could result from the highway or parking lot paving or adjacent footing.

How loadings Applied to Retaining Wall
Pay close attention to wall base the bottom of wall stem construction since it is the most critical section of wall stem in wall design. Steel has very high tensile strength but can bend easily due to its small cross section. Missing concrete or pool consolidation and foreign object intrusion in the wall base section will reduce support to
