Hi. Looking for some information on how to calculate the added horizontal earth pressure from compacting the soil. All literature suggest an increase in stress, but non suggest how to calculate it. Installing a load-cell on a buried wall and experimenting with different level of compaction, soil types and water content would give a useful chart.
