Non-Dimensional Seismic Charts of Active and Passive Forces in Retaining Walls using Stress Fields

Arash Totonchi and Farajolah Askari

Abstract:
This study is devoted to find an Analytical solution to investigate the lateral force affection on retaining walls, using mathematical relations based on lower bound limit analysis method. The lower bound of the exact solution can be obtained by use of different admissible stress fields in different regions of the media divided by stress discontinuity surfaces. This process is included the calculation of direction and magnitude of active and passive lateral earth pressure. Numerical results of proposed algorithm are presented in some practical dimensionless graphs.
