Prieto-Portar 2009 Example 1. Free-earth Support Method for Granular Soils. Select an appropriate steel sheet-pile section and its total length L to retain a medium sand backfill for the conditions shown below without an anchoring system. 115 65 ' pcf pcf = = 35 0 27 6 56 a p therefore K . and K . = = = Step 1.
