Would you consider apparent earth pressures for an anchored wall to be closer to at-rest or active? I have typically thought of them as more akin to active, but in thinking about it and how they they were originally developed it seems like they are somewhere in between, and depending on the stiffness of the wall closer to at-rest. What do other people consider apparent pressures to more closely resemble?
