MINIMUM COST DESIGN OF RETAINING WALLS BY OPTIMIZATION

The use of an improved version of optimization subroutines described in earlier work is demonstrated for the minimum cost design of reinforced concrete cantilever retaining walls. A particular design situation is considered and the costs of nine different geometric wall sections are compared for a range of heights and ground bearing capacities and two different fill materials behind the wall. Other investigations include an examination of the effect of changes in the cost.
