Wall Details:

  • Welded Wire Wall (one 90-degree angle point)
  • Maximum Wall Height of 30’
  • Maximum Mat Length of 28’
  • Dead Load = Increasing Dead Load from 0 @ 1m from face of wall to 275 kN/m2 @ 13m from face of wall.
  • Traffic Loading = An isolated live load surcharge for Mining Haul Trucks (360 kN/m2 – Live Load) has been applied in a worst case condition @ 1m from the face of wall.
  • Seismic acceleration:

Maximum ground acceleration coefficient, A = 0.100

Design acceleration coefficient in Internal Stability: Kh = Am = 0.135

Design acceleration coefficient in External Stability: Kh = 0.135 (Am = 0.135)

  • 25-year design life – hot-dip galvanized
  • 8,544 SF (793.76 SM)
