TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 611: Seismic Analysis and Design of Retaining Walls, Buried Structures, Slopes, and Embankments explores analytical and design methods for the seismic design of retaining walls, buried structures, slopes, and embankments. The Final Report is organized into two volumes. NCHRP Report 611 is Volume 1 of this study. Volume 2, which is only available online, presents the proposed specifications, commentaries, and example problems for the retaining walls, slopes and embankments, and buried structures.
The appendices to NCHRP Report 611 are available online and include the following: A. Working Plan B. Design Margin—Seismic Loading of Retaining Walls C. Response Spectra Developed from the USGS Website D. PGV Equation—Background Paper E. Earthquake Records Used in Scattering Analyses F. Generalized Limit Equilibrium Design Method G. Nonlinear Wall Backfill Response Analyses H. Segrestin and Bastick Paper I. MSE Wall Example for AASHTO ASD and LRFD Specifications J. Slope Stability Example Problem K. Nongravity Cantilever Walls
