Design a suitable countertor reintaining way to support a leveled back till
of height 7.5m above g.L on the toe side. Assume good soil for the
foundation at a desm of 1.5m below G.L the SBC of soil is 170 KN/m2
with unit weight as 16KN/m3. The angle of internal friction is = 300
the co-efficient of friction b/w the soil and concrete is 0.5 use M25
concrete and Fe 415 steel.
Soln:-

Minimum depth of foundation = ***
= ***
Depth of foundation = 1.5 m
Height of wall = 7.5 + 1.5 = 9m
Thickness of had and stem = 5% of 9m = 0.45m ** 0.5.
Thickness of toe slab = 8% of 9 m = 0.72 m.
