Unformatted text preview: active horizontal stresses (not coefficients) D. the Coulomb coefficient for passive earth pressure conditions and the corresponding horizontal stress at the bottom of the wall ; also compute the ratio of Coulomb to Rankine passive horizontal stresses (not coefficients). You are encouraged to check your results by referring to published tables of earth pressure coefficients. 2. Plot the stress states as Mohr’s circles corresponding to Parts B and D from the previous problem. Plot both circles on the same axes and include the soil-friction and interface-friction envelopes. Comment on the differences you observe. You may wish to save a copy of this assignment for reference when completing the next homework assignment....
