Computation of active earth pressure of cohesive backfill on retaining wall considering inertial force

FENG Zhen1,2,WANG Na1,LIN Wei1,LI Juwen1(1.Institute of Disaster Prevention Science and Technology,Beijing 101601,China;2.School of Civil Engineeringand Architecture,Beijing Jiaotong University,Beijing 100044,China)  
Based on the Coulomb's earth pressure theory,under the condition of the equilibrium of the forces when the sliding wedge is in limit equilibrium,a formula is derived for the calculation of active earth pressure of cohesive or non-cohesive backfill soils.This formula could be used in the calculation of earth pressure with superimposed load uniformly distributed at any location of ground surface behind the retaining wall.Some suggestions are put forward for the calculation of earth pressure in gravity retaining wall design in seismic region considering the horizontal inertial force.
