Does anyone have a MSE Retaining Wall subassembly? or any type of retaining wall subassembly that does NOT have a footing or let me know where I can find one?

TIA

I've been looking for one too.  I can't say I've found one.  I started making alignments for each layer of reinforcement which is very tedious and I don't recommend it.

I did a project with an MSE wall recently and built the wall using generic links.  I did not model the tiebacks if that is what you need.  

 

I used a preliminary corridor to establish the toe-of-wall and top-of-wall profiles and alignments.  I can send you the road and wall assembly but it is pretty simple: From the shoulder a link width-and-slope targets the toe of wall, then a link slope-to-elevation targets the top-of-wall profile at a constant 1:6.  Then a link-to-marked-point targets a previously-marked point on the road shoulder to finish off the top of the wall. 

 

I used a separate corridor to develop the wall excavation volume.

Yeah, I'm looking for a subassembly that has the reinforcement too.  But thanks for your help.  I might be able to try that and get some of a design.
