Tag: types of rigid retaining walls Lateral Earth Pressure Theory

There are two classical earth pressure theories. They are 1. Coulomb’s earth pressure theory. 2. Rankine’s earth pressure theory. The first rigorous analysis of the problem of lateral earth pressure was published by Coulomb in (1776). Rankine (1857) proposed a different approach to the problem. These theories propose to estimate the magnitudes of two pressures called active earth pressure and
