Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The active earth pressure on retaining walls of finite length is considerably less than that determined by the Coulomb theory.

     
  2. 2.

    The coefficient of pressure decrease depends on the soil parameters and ratio K=B/H. When K>5 the solution approximates the Coulomb solution.

     
  3. 3.

    The slope angle of the slip plane of the soil for walls of finite lengthis greater than the angle determined by the Coulomb theory.

     
  4. 4.

    The curves of intensity of the earth pressure have a curvilinear outline. The center of the pressure is located higher than under conditions of the two-dimensional problem.
