Refer to the retaining wall in Problem 14.1. Estimate the passive force, P p , per unit length of the wall using Lancellotta’s (2002) analysis by the lower bound theorem of plasticity. Use Table 14.2. 14.1 A retaining wall has a vertical back face with a horizontal granular backfill. Given: H = 6 m, γ = 18.5 kN/m 3 , ϕ ′ = 40 ° , and δ ′ = 1 2 ϕ ′ . Estimate the passive force, P p , per unit length of the wall using Terzaghi and Peck’s (1967) wedge theory (Figure 14.4).

Refer to the retaining wall in Problem 14.1. Estimate the passive force, Pp, per unit length of the wall using Lancellotta’s (2002) analysis by the lower bound theorem of plasticity. Use Table 14.2.

14.1 A retaining wall has a vertical back face with a horizontal granular backfill. Given: H = 6 m, γ = 18.5 kN/m3, ϕ = 40 ° , and δ = 1 2 ϕ . Estimate the passive force, Pp, per unit length of the wall using Terzaghi and Peck’s (1967) wedge theory (Figure 14.4).
