Retaining wall of sawdust

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a project where we are repairing a building that is storing sawdust 
for a fire log manufacturer and I am wondering if anyone would have any 
information what the equivalent fluid active pressure would be of sawdust 
on a retaining wall.  I assume it is less than soil but just how much less? 
 I should note that the sawdust is protected from the outside elements and 
does not get wet.

Thank you to anyone who may have any insight on this one.
