Abstract : CTWALL is a computer program that assesses the stability of T-type retaining and flood walls. The purpose of the program is to assess these structures in accordance with EM 1110-2-2502 and ETL 1110.2-322. CTWALL will evaluate the overturning and sliding stability of a retaining or flood wall in accordance with the aforementioned criteria documents. This instruction report is organized to present CTWALL by describing the installation and equipment requirements, giving a general overview of the operation, discussing the interactive operation, describing the capabilities and procedures used in performing the stability analyses, and explaining the format to be used for a data file. The appendixes present examples and describe specific features of the program. (MM)
