What is Soil Pressure?

Soil pressure is also known as the earth pressure. Pressure is defined as external load applied on the body causing a stress, which is measured in terms of force per unit area. Similarly, the soil pressure is expressed as the forced applied by a soil mass (backfill) over the retaining wall, in the lateral direction throughout its depth.

How to Calculate Maximum Soil Pressure?

Maximum Soil Pressure calculator uses Maximum Soil Pressure=(2*Axial Loading)/(3*Length of Footing *((Width of the Footing/2)-Eccentricity of Loading)) to calculate the Maximum Soil Pressure, The Maximum Soil Pressure formula is defined as the net-loading intensity which is considered the ultimate bearing-capacity based on the quantity, settlement expected and the capability of a structure to bear this settlement. Maximum Soil Pressure and is denoted by q m symbol.

FAQ

What is Maximum Soil Pressure?
The Maximum Soil Pressure formula is defined as the net-loading intensity which is considered the ultimate bearing-capacity based on the quantity, settlement expected and the capability of a structure to bear this settlement and is represented as q m=(2*P)/(3*L*((B/2)-e)) or Maximum Soil Pressure=(2*Axial Loading)/(3*Length of Footing *((Width of the Footing/2)-Eccentricity of Loading)). Axial loading is defined as applying a force on a structure directly along an axis of the structure, Length of Footing is the length of the larger dimension of the footing, Width of the Footing is the shorter dimension of the footing and Eccentricity of Loading is the distance between the actual line of action of loads and the line of action that would produce a uniform stress over the cross section of the specimen.
