Surface Surcharge - Earth Pressure at Rest

An increment of uniformly distributed earth pressure at rest Δσr caused by the vertical surface load applied on the ground surface behind the structure is computed using the following formula:

where:

f

-

magnitude of surface surcharge

Kr

-

coefficient of earth pressure at rest
