I'm designing a 20' tall cantilevered retaining wall where the wall will only be 2' away from a very stable vertical hard rock cut. Crushed gravel will be filled in that 2' space. Since the gravel is only a 2' wide, how do I apply the gravel pressure on the wall? I think the typical triangular load pressure would be too conservative for this condition. Hope someone can help me.
