I have a condition where I have a heavily loaded concrete retaining/basement wall which bears against the vertical surface of a concrete beam/slab. I want to place a bearing pad along the length of the wall (about 60'). The applied service load is 8.2K/Ft. It has been a long time since I sized a pad for this condition.
Will a 3/8" thick x 8" wide x continuous fiber reinforced neoprene bearing pad with a hardness of 80 work or is it an overkill?
