Generally, the main goals of the present study include an evaluation of the effect of geofoam's thickness and density, effect of using two vertical geofoam panels, effect of the sectional shape of geofoam (rectangular and trapezoidal) on displacements, and static forces on the cantilever retaining wall. It should be noted that in the present research, the mechanical behavior of the cantilever retaining wall has been assumed in two yielding and nonyielding states and the results were evaluated.
analyzed influences such as wall height, uniform loads, and the internal friction angle of backfill on static stability of a cantilever retaining wall [4].
The footings and retaining wall panels are thus integrated to create a cantilever retaining wall.
