THE PREDICTION OF EARTH PRESSURE ON RETAINING WALLS DUE TO COMPACTION

The effects of compaction at various levels of fill behind a retaining wall are considered analytically. The formulation is adapted for numerical solution and applied to cantilever and foundation walls with different fill geometries and properties. The resulting wall deflexions and earth pressure magnitudes and distributions considerably modify the 'at rest' pressures and are of practical significance. /Author/TRRL/
