The rock is tall (50ft, 17m)and is cut almost vertically. From rockface to wall the clearance is less than 2ft(0.60m). Sure there will be a cohesionless fill there. Does this slim fill qualify to cause lateral pressure? If yes, where is the failure plane and how can Coulomb procedure work here?
Thanks in advance.
