Description


Purpose of calculation: The soil conditions adjacent to the sheet pile wall are given below, find the active pressure behind the wall and passive pressure in front of the wall.
Calculation Reference: Craig Soil Mechanics. R.F. Craig
Calculation Validation: Check against a worked example in the reference above.
