Tag: Lateral Earth Pressure example Lateral Earth Pressure for at Rest Condition Example

If a retaining wall 5 m high is restrained from yielding, what will be the at-rest earth pressure per meter length of the wall? Given: the backfill is cohesionless soil having 0 = 30° and y = 18 kN/m3. Also determine the resultant force for the at-rest condition. Solution From Eq. (11.5)
