33 Conventional Walls - Summary Use resistance factors for spread footings or deep foundations, as appropriate (Section 10.5) Eccentricity limited to: e/b < 0.25 for soil (compare to ASD 0.167) e/b < for rock (compare to ASD 0.25)

34 Resistance Factors Bearing Resistance Passive Resistance Flexural Resistance Section Code allows increase in Resistance Factors for temporary walls but specific guidance is not provided

35 Non-gravity Cantilevered Walls Below excavation line, multiply by 3b on passive side of wall and 1b on active side of wall for discrete elements Look at forces separately below excavation line on passive side and active side (because different load factors)

36 Pressure Diagrams Discrete Elements ASD LRFD

37 Non-gravity Cantilevered Walls Factor embedment by 1.2 for continuous wall elements Do not factor embedment for discrete wall elements (conservatism of 3b assumption)
