I have a model where a 3 storey building sits on top of a slope. the pressure applied by the building is 30kN/m2. i am informed that we have to use a pressure line to modal this pressure. my question is, how long does the pressure line has to be,how long does the distance between the pressure line and the ground line have to be and what value should be used for the unit weight. i have read the manual and all it says is that the area between the pressure line and the ground line indicates the pressure applied on the ground.(we are using slope/W software package). can you tell me how i can apply the pressure line please. thanks.
