Re: Active, At-Rest, Passive Soil Pressu

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks to all who gave their thoughts and references, on- and off-list on 
this subject.

One more question:

For structures above the water table, if we design for at-rest equivalent 
fluid pressures in the 60-70 pcf range, are we designing a dam or an earth 
retaining structure?
