Abstract

The development of earth pressure theory as it relates to rigidly framed earth retaining structures is chronicled in this chapter. Inadequacies of classical theories are explored along with studies related to earth pressure acting against integral bridges, which resemble, in some ways, a single story rigidly framed earth retaining structure.
