Soil Pressure on Retaining Walls

  • Chapter

Abstract

It is well known that the magnitude of soil pressure on a retaining structure depends on the physical properties of the soil, the geometry of the contact surface, the character of displacement (deformation) of the retaining structure under soil pressure, and other effects, e.g., friction between the soil and the structure. Wall movement is a major contributor to the magnitude and distribution of soil pressure along the height of a wall.
