Lateral Earth Pressure of Rigid Wall Based on AASHTO 17th & 2018 IBC
INPUT DATA & DESIGN SUMMARY
SOIL SPECIFIC WEIGHT gb = 110 pcf
SOIL INTERNAL FRICTION ANGLE f = 30 deg
SLOPE OF BACKFILL b = 15 deg
EXTERNAL FRICTION ANGLE d = 17 deg
RACK ANGLE OF WALL FACE q = 90 deg

## The Active Earth Pressure: Pa = 41 psf / ft

Pa, h = 39 pcf (horizontal equivalent fluid pressure)
The At-rest Earth Pressure: P0 = 55 psf / ft
The Passive Earth Pressure: Pp = 330 psf / ft

ANALYSIS
DETERMINE ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE
Pa = gb Ka = 41 psf / ft
Pa, h = Pa sin( q - d) = 39 pcf (horizontal equivalent fluid pressure)

where 0 = 1 - sin f = 0.500 , (AASHTO 5.5.2-2)

The total horizontal resultant at rest, (0.5 H P 0), acts H/3 above the base.
