Question #166602

a retaining wall with a sloping backfill. Determine the active earth pressure distribution, the magnitude and the point of application of the resultant by the analytical method. The soil conditions adjacent to a rigid retaining wall are shown in Fig. Prob. 11.10. A surcharge pressure of 50 kN/m^2 is carried on the surface behind the wall. For soil (A) above the water table. c'= 0, phi ' = 38 degree, gamma' = 18 kN/m^3. For soil (B) below the WT, c' = 10 kN/m^2, phi' = 28 degree, and gamma_ = 20 kN/m^3. Calculate the maximum unit active pressure behind the wall, and the resultant thrust per unit length of the wall.
