Formulation of Seismic Passive Resistance of Non-Vertical Retaining Wall Backfilled

Sima Ghosh, Satarupa Sengupta


The seismic passive earth pressure is really the most important parameter in some special cases like key analysis, anchor analysis, foundation analysis etc. The simultaneous action of weight, surcharge, cohesion and adhesion is also taken into consideration. A visual presentation is made by plotting graphs with the wide range of variation Parameters like angle of internal friction, angle of wall friction, wall inclination angle, cohesion (c), adhesion (ca), seismic accelerations (kh, kv), surcharge loading (q), unit weight, height (H) to provide the variation of seismic passive earth pressure coefficient.

Keywords: Pseudo-static, seismic passive resistance, single wedge, rigid retaining wall, wall inclination.
