ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE ON WALLS WITH BASE PROTECTION. DISCUSSION

This is a discussion of a paper of the above title by A.F. Barghouthi published in Vol. 116 No. 10, October 1990, of this Journal. It is pointed out that the approach proposed by the author is developed in terms of global limit equilibirum to determine the active thrust on the wall, and that no consideration is formulated about the point of application of this thrust, while its localization is very important for the analysis of the stability conditons of a wall. Questions left open to discussion by the original paper are noted.
