Calculation of force and bending moment due to earth pressure on a cantilevering wall

1.1 Design values : 0.3 2.525 1 1.458 t/m2 2 0.693 t/m2 ka = width of dirtwall = height of dirtwall,h = 0.279 0.300 m g= 2.07 t/m2

Earth Pressure diagram 2.525 m

1)Earth Pressure due to surcharge equivalent to 1.2m of earthfill

= =

ka *g*1.2 0.693 t/m2 ka *g*h = 1.458 t/m2

2)Earth Pressure due to backfill of earth

=

Bending moment at the base of dirtwall due to earth pressure (1)

= =

ka *g*1.2*h2/2 2.209 t-m/m ka *g*h3*0.42/2 = 1.952 t-m/m 4.162 t-m/m

Bending moment at the base of dirtwall due to earth pressure (1)

=

Total bending moment at the base of wall due to earth pressure

=
