Retaining Wall

Retaining Wall: Back fill to top of cut. The offset from the base of the wall is calculated by: Offset = WallHeight * WallFactor

Typical Cross Section


WallThickWidth of a wall (as seen in the cross section).
WallHeightHeight of a wall.
WallFactorControls the horizontal offset from the wall to backslope. e.g. offset = WallFactor * WallHeight
WallBackSlopeSlope of the base of the backfill material.
bBackFillToTopoSet to 1 if the back fill slope should adjust to close at topo.
WallBackfillSlopeSlope of top of backfill. This slope is ignored if bBackFillToTopo is 1.
WallBFillOffsetOffset of backfil from base of the wall.
