You are correct, that is at-rest pressure.

I would say "at rest pressure".  How can a uniformly loaded circular casing deflect to develop active earth pressure?

Active only.

Do you check casing wall for hoop stress under active earth pressure only or you also check under passive earth pressure ?
Caisson is considered similar to tank under pressure, not as a column or sheet pile design.
Any thoughts ?
Thanks.
