CEE 452 FOUNDATIONS FALL 2005 Problem 25.5 Solution 1. Plot effective vertical effective stress versus depth on both sides of wall: 2. Plot active and passive stress versus depth (active stress on the right hand side, passive stress on the left hand side), using a factor of safety of 2 on the passive stress). Using Rankine theory (K A = [(1-sin ’)/(1+sin ’)] and K P = 1/K A ), K A =0.42 and K P /2 = 1.18 for ’ = 24 degrees. Note: The water pressure and pore pressure are ignored because they are the same on both sides of the wall. In practice, we would usually have a differential water pressure, with a lower water level outside the wall to account for tidal fluctuations and/or build-up (“mounding”) of ground water inside the wall.
