Tag: Cohesion Rankine’s States of Plastic Equilibrium for Cohesionless Soils

Let AT in Fig. 11.6(a) represent the horizontal surface of a semi-infinite mass of cohesionless soil with a unit weight y. The soil is in an initial state of elastic equilibrium. Consider a prismatic block ABCD. The depth of the block is z and the cross-sectional area of the block is unity. Since the element is symmetrical with respect to
