Please see sketch below. Is this a case where at-rest lateral earth pressure should be considered? The area between two existing walls is to be infilled to allow for some equipment to be driven over. I'm sure this question has been asked before but I've done a bit research and still am not clear which pressure to consider, and if passive is used the lateral load will be much greater. As I understood because the walls are restrained from movement, at rest should be used with a surcharge load for the equipment. Thanks.
