Title: Retaining wall anchoring system and method

Abstract

An anchoring system for an upright retaining wall laterally disposed between laterally spaced upright beams having flat outer faces is described comprising a pair of brackets, each bracket comprising a vertically oriented generally planar first plate having inner and outer faces. The first plate has means outwardly extending from the inner face for at least temporarily supporting the bracket upon the face of the beams, a body mounted on the first plate and projecting outwardly from the exterior surface thereof in a place generally normal to the exterior surface, the body further mounted on the first plate for at least limited pivotal motion therewith. The body has a second plate fixedly attached thereto and disposed on the body side distal from its connection with the first plate. The second plate has an outer planar surface disposed at an acute angle to the first plate, wherein appropriate pivoting of the bodies with respect to the first plates of a pair of brackets mounted on the pair of spaced beams disposes the second plates in the same angular plane, a rigid anchoring platform fixedly mounted on the second plates and extending laterally between the beams, a ground retaining wall extending between themore » pair of beams, a ground anchor disposed behind and generally below the wall, and a cable having opposite ends attached to the platform at a point intermediate its connection with the second plates at one end thereof and to the anchor at the opposite end thereof.« less
