Lateral Earth Pressure II

This post is an extension of a previous post http://howtoengineer.com/retaining-wall-lateral-earth-pressure/ The spreadsheet will use the nomeclature found in NCMA’s Design Manual for Segmental Retaining Walls and Coulomb Theory. See here: Lateral Earth Pressure – Soil Basic 1 Geometry Sketch Also here is a…

Retaining Wall – Lateral Earth Pressure

Retaining Wall – Lateral Earth Pressure Update: For spreadsheets and more examples of calculating active and passive pressures see Lateral Earth Pressure II We will briefly discuss lateral earth pressure caused by soil weight and ground water effects. I’m not going to…
