Lateral Pressure on the Retaining Wall Due to Vertical Surcharge


This spreadsheet computes lateral pressure against retaining wall due to vertical surcharge loads. The VBA routine replaces area load with a group of closely spaced point loads. 
The stresses due to individual point loads are calculated using theory of elasticity equations developed by Boussinesq and then integrated. Subsequently, the spreadsheet calculates shear force and bending moment diagrams.
