## Calculation of Factors of Safety Against Overturning and Sliding for a Cantilever Retaining Wall with Uniform Surcharge Loading

March 3, 2017 Abdul Siraj, P.E.

In this post, I will go over the third example in our foundation design course covering retaining walls. The goal of this foundation design example is to calculate the factors of safety against overturning and sliding for a cantilever retaining wall with uniform surcharge loading. We will neglect the effects of the passive earth pressure because…
