L-Type Cantilever Retaining Wall Calculator to AS 4678:2002

Easy to use online L-Type Cantilever Retaining Wall software for Australian standards.


The ClearCalcs L-type Cantilever Retaining Wall Calculator provides fast, customisable design and analysis calculations for AS4678. The calculator assumes no shear key, no soil inclined behind the structure, and does not include wind or earthquake loads. Rankine theory is used to determine lateral earth pressure, and retained soil is assumed to be in the active state, with soil cover in front of the retaining wall toe in the passive state. Concrete detailing needs to be checked separately.
