(OP)

When dealing with additional horizontal pressures on a retaining wall, that are induced by a strip load, wich of the two cases is the right way to look at the situation, and can you please explain why?

Retaining wall position and geometry are sketched with an red line.

yakpol. Case B also governs for sliding. However, Case A and case B are not the same loading conditions. The real question is where is the surcharge located? Over the heel or behind the heel.www.PeirceEngineering.com

What would be the difference?

IN case A it is over the hell, and in case B it is behind the heel.

Beyond wich line would you say that the strip loading has no effect on the retaining wall?

And wich case is the correct way to be looking?

Case A, projection from the heel of the foundation, or case B prijection from the bottom of the stem?

IM a bit confused with this, becasue lateral earth pressures are always calculated for the foundation heel....
