Civil Drafting Drafting a Retaining Wall

Standard Drawing - Masonry Retaining Wall o Download this standard drawing, http://www.lasvegasnevada.gov/files/Masonry_Wall_Standard_Design.pdf

3. Drawing Setup UNITS Engineering DIMSTYLE Engineering scale 1"=30' BHATCH Earth = 10 scale and Concrete = 1 scale 4. Footing Rebar must have minimum 3" of concrete covering, see General Note 9 Unclear how long the hook/dowel should be in the footing, try researching ACI 332 Requirements for Residential Concrete Construction and Commentary or maybe the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Show the following items 0. hatch for backfill material 1. PVC weep holes 2. how to make a construction note, number enclosed in a polygon 3. CMU specifications, what is the size of the block, see lecture notes on CMU Dimensions

4. pictures of reinforcement bars 5. notes on retaining wall design 6. Grout specifications - thickness 7. Mortar specifications - how to make 8. how to calculate the specific weight of soil 9. efforesense resistance CMU, need specifications and pictures 10. label parts of the retaining wall - toe, heel, etc. 11. Example AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 drawing, RetainingWall.dwg Masonry Institute of America (MIA) National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) o Segmental Retaining Wall Units TEK 2-4B o Typical Sizes and Shapes of Concrete Masonry Units TEK 2-1A "Typically, concrete masonry units have nominal face dimensions of 8 in. (203 mm) by 16 in. (406 mm), available in nominal thicknesses of 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 in. (102, 152, 203, 254, and 305 mm). Nominal dimensions refer to the module size for planning bond patterns and modular layout with respect to door and window openings. Actual dimensions of concrete masonry units are typically 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) less than nominal dimensions, so that the 4 or 8 in. (102 or 203 mm) module is maintained with 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) mortar joints." ( Typical Sizes and Shapes of Concrete Masonry Units TEK 2-1A, p. 1)

"For reinforced masonry construction, deformed bars range in size from a minimum #3 (3/8 inch diameter) to a maximum #11 (1-3/8 inch diameter), however, the upper limit for masonry designed by Strength Design is #9 (1-1/8 inch diameter)." (Reinforced Masonry Engineering Handbook, 6th Edition, by James E. Amrhein, p. 28)

Masonry Design and Detailing for Architects and Contractors, 5th Edition, 2004 by Christine Beall, ISBN: 0071377344, Publisher: McGraw-Hill.

"Efflorescence is the white powdery deposit on exposed masonry surfaces caused by the leaching of soluble salts. If the units and the mortar ingredients contain no soluble salts such as sodium or potassium sulfate, and if insufficient mositure is present to effect leaching, efflorescence cannot occur. To minimize the possible contribution of mortar ingredients to efflorescence, specify portland cements with low alkali content, clean washed sand, and clean mixing water." (Masonry Design and Detailing for Architects and Contractors, 5th Edition, 2004 by Christine Beall, ISBN: 0071377344, Publisher: McGraw-Hill, p. 131)
