Abstract

The goal of this study is to precisely estimate the active earth pressure acting on a rigid retaining wall under translating mode. In this study, the problem of the retaining wall with a parabolic slip surface in the backfill behind the wall is investigated using a two-dimensional system of equilibrium, unlike the horizontal flat-element method considering soil arching effect for calculating active earth pressure. New equations are developed to calculate the magnitude and distribution of the active earth pressure.
