Retaining wall design pressures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What are opinions regarding retaining wall design pressures when the
backfill material is completely saturated i.e. water table up to the
ground surface.

Would the full active equivalent fluid pressure of the soil be additive
with a full hydrostatic design pressure??
