EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF THE ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE EXERTED BY A COHESIONLESS MASS ON A RETAINING WALL WITH A BACK INCLINED TOWARD THE BACK FILL (IN RUSSIAN)

A SMALL-SCALE MODEL TEST IS DESCRIBED ON THE ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE OF A COHESIONLESS SAND MASS ON A SLOPING RETAINING WALL; THE INCLINATION OF THE SCREEN WAS EQUAL TO 5, 10, 15, AND 20 DEGREES. THE SHAPE OF THE SLIDING SURFACE OF THE SOIL UP TO FAILURE POINT, AND THE VALUE AND DISTRIBUTION OF ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE WERE DETERMINED. RESULTS SHOW THAT THE SHAPE OF THE SLIDING SURFACE IS NOT INFLUENCED BY VARIATIONS IN THE ANGLE OF INCLINATION. AN EQUATION IS GIVEN EXPRESSING THE RESULTANT OF NORMAL ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE IN TERMS OF THE ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE ON A VERTICAL WALL. /RRL/
