Repeat Problem 14.12 with the following data: H = 18 ft, n a H = 5.4 ft, ϕ ′ = 20 ° , δ ′ = 10 ° , γ = 125 lb/ft 3 , and c ′ = 225 lb/ft 2 . Assume c ′ a c ′ = tan δ ′ tan ϕ ′ . 14.12 A braced wall is shown in Figure 14.20. Given: H = 7 m, n a H = 2.8 m, ϕ ′ = 30 ° , δ ′ = 20 ° , γ = 18 kN/m 3 , and c ′ = 0. Determine the active thrust, P a , on the wall using the general wedge theory. Figure 14.20
