Tag: Cohesive Rankine’s Active Earth Pressure with Cohesive Backfill

In Fig. 1 1.1 3(a) is shown a prismatic element in a semi-infinite mass with a horizontal surface. The vertical pressure on the base AD of the element at depth z is   The horizontal pressure on the element when the mass is in a state of plastic equilibrium may be determined by making use of Mohr’s stress diagram [Fig. 1 1.13(b)].
