Surface Surcharge - Passive Earth Pressure

For passive earth pressure only an increment due to vertical uniform load fa is determined using the formula:

where:

fa

-

vertical surface surcharge

Kp

-

coefficient of passive earth pressure

The vertical uniform load q acting on the ground surface therefore results in a constant increment of passive pressure applied over the entire length of the wall - see the figure.
