# A retaining wall located in an earthquake zone has a vertical back face and a horizontal backfill (Figure 14.8). The wall is also subjected to a surcharge loading of magnitude, q = 95 kN/m 2 . Determine the magnitude and location of the passive force, P pe , due to earthquake conditions. Given: γ = 18 kN/m 3 , ϕ' = 40°, δ' = 20°, c' = 30 kN/m 2 , c ′ a = 0 , H = 7 m, and k v = k h = 0.2.
