Abstract

Recently, the long-term research of passive pressure has been carried out. The rotation about the toe of the physical model sized 3.0*1.0*1.2 m has brought unexpected results similarly as the previous research of active pressure. The research contains among others the investigation of time stability of both pressure components, i.e. normal component and shear component. The paper presents latest information about physical modelling and its results and compares the results with the concept of the developed the General Lateral Pressure Theory (GLPT). This theory is supported also by the monitored time instability of lateral pressure, which is discussed as well. The recent state of the General Lateral Pressure theory in contradiction to the state of the recent earth pressure theory is mentioned.

History of Passive Pressure of Non-Cohesive Mass and Its Consequences for Theory of Earth Pressure

New York, New York

Recently, the long-term research of passive pressure has been carried out. The rotation about the toe of the physical model sized 3.0*1.0*1.2 m has brought unexpected results similarly as the previous research of active pressure. The research contains among others the investigation of time stability of both pressure components, i.e. normal component and shear component. The paper presents latest information about physical modelling and its results and compares the results with the concept of the developed the General Lateral Pressure Theory (GLPT). This theory is supported also by the monitored time instability of lateral pressure, which is discussed as well. The recent state of the General Lateral Pressure theory in contradiction to the state of the recent earth pressure theory is mentioned.
