Formula to calculate the eﬀective height of the surcharge is as given below. Find

Retaining wall:

Consider a cantilever retaining wall retaining a soil mass and acted upon by surcharge as shown in the below gure. Find out the
eﬀective height of the surcharge for this case.
In the retaining wall, vertical back ll or soil mass acts along with surcharge for retaining wall. Assume that term H is the height of
the back ll, q is the intensity of surcharge and γ is the unit weight of the back ll soil.

Calculate the eﬀective height in terms of the lateral stress exerted by the surcharge over the wall in terms of unit weight of soil.

Here, the term ka is the active earth pressure coeﬃcient for the back ll.
