Ms. Gabriela Mariscal from NCMA wrote in an article entitled “New tools for designing segmental retaining walls” that the second edition of the DMSRW was released in 1997, in 1998 a seismic design manual was published, and in 2002 a drainage manual related to SRWs was released. The upcoming version of the manual will incorporate recommendations from both supplemental manuals into one document. Other changes include:
- Hinge height concept removed
- Bulging calculation method updated
- Serviceability requirements for connection strength eliminated
- Offset surcharges added
- Rectangular distribution of dynamic load added
- Internal compound stability analysis added
A summary description of these changes is included in Ms. Mariscal’s CE News Article. Source: ASCE SmartBrief.
