Unformatted text preview: Rainwater collects behind the concrete retaining wall shown in Figure 2.7. If the water- saturated soil (speciﬁc gravity = 2.2) acts as a ﬂuid, determine the force and center of pressure on a one-meter width of the wall. Figure 2.7 Retaining wall. The force on a unit width of the wall is obtained by integrating the pressure difference be- tween the right and left sides of the wall. Taking the origin at the top of the wall and mea— suring y downward, the force due to pressure is F : f (P e PMXI) dy The pressure difference in the region in contact with the water '- P7P” =pH,ogy I 1 u log L ydy + mag [l + 2.2(y - 1)] dy 0/ i1 m)(13.4 m3) : 131 414 N(29 5461b.) e center of pressure of the force on the wall is obtained by taking moments about the top of the wall. - ‘ = (1000 kg/m3)(9.807 m/s5) l 4 mp. = plug {[0 yldy + [1 yil + 2.20 — 1)] :0} l A . , UM _ A n , .. : IUOO Ko/mthO/mjs‘irlm\15!.53 3)....
