the designer should make sure that the embedded portion wall is not going to be on the neighbors lot.
That's hanging over my head right now. I'm supposed to be completing acquisition maps. But the retaining walls haven't been designed yet. So what we'll need to include the footings is just a guess at this point.
It's good you brought these issues up. I was just addressing the use of Featurelines in wall design and surface creation. There's always much more to the story!
HTH. This of course will not matter if the wall is not constrained by surrounding stuctures or parcel boundaries.
Here's a nice example of feature line retaining walls built into the surface for the OP. There are 4 or 5 here. It shows the top inside walll face as CColes discussed.
Wow! They're re-grading the Partenon
Well now we all now know your not Greek... or an architect
That was for a lake front log cabin addition.
Plaese if it is possible,could you please share the DWG file of this example?
I appreciate you in advance,because it is very useful for me
Sorry I took so long to respond. I was away for a few days.
I had to remove data from this file and place the basics for these walls into the NCS template.
There are two methods to building walls here.
Wall 1 - Feature lines extracted from a corridor. I like the profile control and profile superimposition to to display the wall with this method. I use this most when the contractor bids by wall face area and when a profile is needed to spec anchoring and/or grid systems.
Wall 2. Drafted Feature Lines - Draw them as you need in plan. Assign elevations and add the feature lines to a surface. I use this most often for smaller (<6') boulder walls and landscape walls.
These same methods can be used to construct many other things like curbs, buildings, ponds, swales, etc.
The 2.6 MB file is too large to post here.
Send me an email and I will deliver. Sorry I don't do dropbox or stuff like that.
