<p>Observations of the performance of many different types of retaining structures in recent earthquakes show that failures of retaining structures, including braced excavation supports and basement walls, are rare even if the structures were not designed ...

<p>In the following sections, we will first discuss basic considerations necessary for<br />calculating lateral earth pressure and then how to apply these pressures in developing the force. We will illustrate how the lateral forces are combined with vertical ...
