Use Rankine analysis. 23 ft Sand Backfill γ m =115.0 pcf γ sat = 125.2 pcf φ = 37°, c = 0 i = 10° 5 ft 5 ft 2.5 ft 2.5 ft Bearing Soil γ sat = 122.0 pcf φ = 25°, c = 0 Sand Backfill γ m = 18.8 kN/m 3 φ = 32° Bearing Soil γ sat = 18.8 kN/m 3 φ = 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 Coulomb’s analysis. Calculate the components of the total resultant force. 20 ft Sand Backfill γ m = 120.0 pcf γ sat = 125.2 pcf φ = 37°, c = 0 i = 25°...
