Its a segmental wall ranging from 4' to 6'. There are a couple layers of geogrid in it. Contractor wants to put a couple of 6x6 deck posts with probably a 12x12 concrete footing in the reinforced zone. Any tips on how to accomplish this? First thought was to go down to the base height of the wall so the additional surcharge load is not on the wall. Other option is to set it at the top and try and bound the design with the surcharge load. It won't be very big, few kips.
I've seen the allan block details for fences, etc. I also have the NCMA SRW design software for use. Thoughts?
