Designing some MSE walls with reinforced soil slopes above. The toe of the above slope is to be setback from the wall face by 6-ft. I am looking for a method/approximation to apply a surcharge as a cont. strip footing offset behind the wall. There isn't an AASHTO or LRFD procedure for this geometry so trying to think a little outside the box on this one.
