Textbook Problem

Refer to Figure 14.19. Given: θ = 0, α = 0°, H = 5 m, γ = 15 kN/m3, ϕ = 30 ° , and δ = 15 ° . Estimate the passive force, Pp, per unit length of the wall using Caquot and Kerisel’s solution (Figure 14.6 and Table 14.6).

To determine

Find the passive force Pp per unit length of the wall using Caquot and Kerisel’s solution.

Explanation

Given information:

The height (H) of the retaining wall is 5.0 m.

The soil friction angle ϕ is 30°.

The angle of wall friction δ is 15°.

The given angle θ value is 0.

The unit weight γ of the granular backfill is 15kN/m3.

Calculation:

Calculate the passive force Pp per unit length of the wall using the Caquot and Kerisel’s solution.

Pp=12γH12Kp (1)

Here, Kp is the passive earth pressure coefficient.

Refer Figure 14.6 “Caquot and Kerisel’s solution for Kp” in the text book.

Take the passive earth pressure coefficient Kp for the soil having friction angle of 30° and the angle of 0° as 5.90.

Determine the ratio of angle of wall friction to the soil friction angle.

δϕ=15°30°=0.50

Refer Table 14
