For the dead man anchor construction the backfill around the anchor, above the underside of the deadman anchor, should be compacted. Is it only the passive wedge in front of the anchor which should be compacted or other peripheral areas need also be compacted. I am looking for a reference which shows the influence zone, which should be compacted and would appreciate your feedback. Thanks.
