Lateral Force (P):
The pressure of retained soil, acting at h/3 is found using the formula:
P =0.00lbs
Where:P=Lateral force acting at h/3, in kN or lbsw=Force from weight of retained soil, in kN or lbs(16 kN or 100 lbs for preliminary calculations)h=Height of wal
Wall Weight/Vertical Force (W):
The wall section is divided into three sections (A, B, & C) based on materials.
Section A =0.00lbs
Weight of each is calculated by determining the cross-sectional area of eachand multiplying by force from the weight of the material (w) (16 kN or 100 lbs
Section B =0.00lbs
for soil, 23.5 kN or 150 lbs for concrete).
Section C =0.00lbsTotal Wall Weight (W) =0.00lbs
Locating the Centroid:
The moments (M) of the three sections (A, B, & C) are determined
Moment of A =0.00ft lbs
by multiplying their weights by their respective moment arms, the distance of vertical line of action from the toe of the wall.
Moment of B =0.00ft lbsMoment of C =0.00ft lbsSum of all Moments =0.00ft lbsMoment Arm of Wall =#DIV/0!ft
The moment arm of the wall's entire cross section is found by dividing thesum of all moments by the sum of all weights. The wall's centroid is found by extending this moment arm from the toe of the wall at h/3

The resultant force of earth pressure and wall weight (R) is found by the formula:
R =0.00lbs
The point where the resultant force cuts through the plane of the base must bedetermined in order to assess wall stability. The distance between the wall centerline and this point is the eccentricity (e), and is found through the formulas:Sin x =
#DIV/0!
 x =
#DIV/0!
Where: x =The angle created by the intersection of the resultant force (R)
e =#DIV/0!ft
and the weight of the wall (W).For most stable soil conditions, the resultant force must cut through front part of the middle 1/3 of the plane of the base.
Distance from toe where R cuts through base =#DIV/0!ftBase width of wall =0
#DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! 
Testing Wall Performance
Testing for Overturning:
The tendency for a wall to overturn is found by the formula:
Resisting Moment =#DIV/0!ft lbsOverturning Moment =0.00ft lbs
 A safety factor of 2 or more is acceptable.
Safety Factor =#DIV/0!
#DIV/0! #DIV/0! 
Testing for Crushing (Settlement at the Toe):
The tendency for a wall to settle at the toe is found by the formula:
f=#DIV/0!ps
Where:
f=bearing force in kN or ps
#DIV/0! 
W=weight of wal
#DIV/0! 
 A=wall base area [width of wall base x 1 m (ft)] 
#DIV/0! 
e=wall eccentricity d=footing dimension (base width of wall)
