Retaining Wall Design Problem 2  Determine Lateral Force By Rankine Formula:

Given the proposed retaining wall below, calculate the lateral force acting on the wall using the Rankine formula. 

1. From the retaining walls submenu open the Coulomb'sRankine formula calculation, RankineAEPC.aspx. Input the "Title" of the calculation, the "Designer/Checker" information and the variables.
Click on the "Calculate" button. Read the results. The lateral force by Rankine Formula is 14,227.870 lb/ft and the overturning moment is 94,852.470 lbft.


2. Summary

The lateral force acting on the wall as calculated by the Rankine formula is 14,227.870 lb/ft and the overturning moment is 94,852.470 lbft.
