Abstract : This report covers the specific strength design criteria and strength design procedures for inverted T-walls used as retaining walls or flood walls founded on earth or rock. Among the subjects covered are: applicable loads and forces; loading combinations; base reaction; design strength for reinforcement; distribution of flexural reinforcement; control of deflections; shrinkage and temperature reinforcement; concrete cover for reinforcement; details of reinforcement; maximum tension reinforcement; minimum reinforcement flexural members; combined flexure and axial loads; factored shear force; shear strength of walls; design of structural components; and design examples. A commentary discussing the considerations and background information used in developing the strength design criteria is also included. (Author)
