# Refer to the retaining wall in Problem 14.1. Estimate the passive force, P p , per unit length of the wall using Sokolowskiĭ (1965) solution by the method of characteristics (Table 14.3). 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).
