Abstract

Retaining walls are common engineering structures that are built to resist the lateral earth pressures generally caused by the excavations. It has always been a suspicious subject for engineers to design the retaining walls under dynamic loads. In this context, In Turkey, the Turkish Building Earthquake Code 2018 (TBEC-2018) is developed to perform more sensitive analyses to increase the welfare and security of society, depending on structural safety. TBEC-2018 has also mentioned the design of the reinforced concrete retaining walls (RCRW) under seismic loads at the 16th section. The design of the RCRW walls is performed in this study, according to TBEC. It is considering the change of the excavation depth, the shear strength angle of the soil and the unit weight of the soil, the surcharge load. The change of the dimensions has been investigated and conducted simple regression analyses to obtain design expressions based on the change of mentioned variants.
