Design of retaining wall needs the complete knowledge of earth pressures for both active and passive conditions. Under earthquake condition, the design requires special attention to reduce the devastating effect of this natural hazard. But under seismic condition, the available literatures mostly give the pseudo-static analytical value of the earth pressures as an approximate solution to the real dynamic nature of the complex problem. In the present work, a recently developed pseudodynamic… CONTINUE READING
