Cost optimization of cantilever retaining wall

Jena, Abhinab and V , Aravinda Ramanujam (2010) Cost optimization of cantilever retaining wall. BTech thesis.



This thesis presents a lucid model to obtain the optimum cost of a cantilever retaining wall having different cases of backfill (straight and inclined) and surcharge. A code written in Java, finds out all the sections of the cantilever retaining wall possible according to stability
criteria that applies to all retaining walls and gives the optimum cost of a retaining wall of a given height and the required material properties to be used, while following the provisions of the Indian Standard Code, IS 456:2000for the sections. The freedom given for the person who uses the program to specify material properties and their costs add to the versatility of the code.
