Surface Surcharge - Active Earth Pressure

The increment of active earth pressure at rest due to surface surcharge is given by:

where:

p

-

vertical uniform load

Ka

-

coefficient of active earth pressure

The vertical uniform load p applied to the ground surface induces therefore over the entire height of the structure a constant increment of active earth pressure - see figure:
