THEORETICAL INVESTIGATIONS OF THE PASSIVE PROGRESSIVE FAILURE IN AN EARTH PRESSURE PROBLEM

The passive progressive failure in a mixed boundary value problem of a retaining wall rotating about its toe, rotating about its top and translating into a dry sand medium is studied. The analyses developed in this work aided by the proposed computational procedures would provide a more reliable means of predicting the load-deformation characteristics at all working loads, rather than only loads at failure, in practical retaining walls problems. The stress-strain data are compared with corresponding values obtained from the conventional analysis which bases the solution of the earth pressure problem on the soil properties at the state of failure, and marked differences are noted. /Author/
