Abstract

This technical note presents the analytical derivation of an explicit expression for the total seismic passive earth pressure from the sloping c-φ{symbol} soil backfills on the rigid retaining walls. The derivation considers practical aspects such as surcharge, and wall friction and adhesion along with both the horizontal and vertical seismic inertial forces. The development of an explicit expression for the critical inclination of the failure plane within the soil backfill is also described. It is shown that the analytical expression gives the same results for simpler special cases reported previously in the literature for both non-seismic and seismic problem conditions.
