Unformatted text preview: respect to overturning, sliding, and bearing. Use c = 23.58 kN/m 3 as the unit weight of concrete. Use Rankine analysis. 23 ft Sand Backfill m =115.0 pcf sat = 125.2 pcf = 37, c = 0 i = 10 5 ft 5 ft 2.5 ft 2.5 ft Bearing Soil sat = 122.0 pcf = 25, c = 0 Sand Backfill m = 18.8 kN/m 3 = 32 Bearing Soil sat = 18.8 kN/m 3 = 22 c = 17.9 kN/m 2 x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 D H 3. A gravity wall retains backfill inclined at an angle of 25. Determine the total resultant force and its point of application using Coulombs analysis. Calculate the components of the total resultant force. 20 ft Sand Backfill m = 120.0 pcf sat = 125.2 pcf = 37, c = 0 i = 25...
