Optimum Design of Tied-Back Retaining Walls

In the present work, a new type of retaining wall is proposed, in which the wall is tied to the base by two parallel inclined ties. To study the structural behaviour of the tied-back retaining wall, the finite element method is used. A computer program is written in FORTRAN IV for the solution of the problem. Professor F.A.N.
