833 x S(H + H')2/ 2 (for a retaining wall with surcharge) A retaining wall may fail by overturning, horizontal sliding, or excessive settling. • Thrust tends to overturn wall about toe of base. • To prevent a retaining wall from overturning, the resisting moment (Mr) of the composite weight of the wall and any soil bearing on the heel of the base (W x d) must counter the overturning moment (Mo) created by the soil pressure (T x H/3). Using a safety factor of 2, Mr ≥ 2Mo. ) must counter the lateral thrust on the wall (T).

There are two basic types of site drainage: subsurface and surface drainage systems. Subsurface drainage consists of an underground network of piping for conveying groundwater to a point of disposal, as a storm sewer system or a natural outfall at a lower elevation on the site. Excess groundwater can reduce the load-carrying capacity of a foundation soil and increase the hydrostatic pressure on a building foundation. Waterproofing is required for basement structures situated close to or below the water table of a site.
