# Reinforcement Detailing Of Cantilever Retaining Wall

This construction video tutorial will teach you how to examine shear stresses at the juncture of stem and base slab for a cantilever retaining wall.

Retaining walls are generally developed to retain soil mass. Conversely, retaining walls are also built up for aesthetic landscaping purposes.

Suppose, net working shear force is given as V

To calculate this shear force, you have to apply the following formula :-

(1.5p ? W) = (1.5 x 81.12 ? 102.4) = 19.28 KN

Here, P stands for total horizontal earth pressure.

W stands for maximum possible frictional forces.

Factored Shear Force = 1.5 x V = 19.28 x 5 = 28.92 KN

To learn the complete process, watch the following video.
