Geotechnical Engineering-II [Lec #22: Earth Pressure at Rest]

  1. 1. 1 Geotechnical Engineering–II [CE-321] BSc Civil Engineering – 5th Semester by Dr. Muhammad Irfan Assistant Professor Civil Engg. Dept. – UET Lahore Email: mirfan1@msn.com Lecture Handouts: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/geotech-ii_2015session Lecture # 22 24-Nov-2017
  2. 2. 3 Practice Problem #1
  3. 3. 4 Practice Problem #1
  4. 4. 7 Practice Problem #2 The basement wall of a house 5m high retains a silty sand material with soil parameters as follows; c = 0; f = 30°; gb = 18 kN/m3 a. If at rest conditions exists, what will be the total earth pressure per meter length of the wall? b. If the water table behind the wall rises to top of the wall. Determine the change in horizontal pressure that will occur due to the rise in water table. gsat = 20 kN/m3.
