Tag: Active Pressure Active Pressure by Culmann’s Method for Cohesionless Soils

Culmann’s (1875) method is the same as the trial wedge method. In Culmann’s method, the force polygons are constructed directly on the 0-line AE taking AE as the load line. The procedure is as follows: In Fig. 11.19(a) AB is the retaining wall drawn to a suitable scale. The various steps in the construction of the pressure locus are: 1.
