Unformatted text preview: φ = 33. The values of d between wall and backfill and between wall and foundation soil is 26º. The pressure on the foundation soil should not exceed 250kN/m 2 . Is the design of wall satisfactory? iii) A soil has the following properties: γ =18kN/m 3 ; φ ′=30º, c′=5kPa. The soil is retained behind a 6 m high vertical wall and has a horizontal surface level with the top of the wall. If c′ w = 5kPa and δ ′=15º, Determine the total active horizontal thrust acting on the back of the wall....
