Nomograms for the Calculation of Pressure and Passive Resistance of Cohesionless Soils

The two extremes of pressure to which a retaining (i) the active pressure of the soil on the back of a wall resulting from slight movement of the wall away from the filling, and (ii) the passive resistance of the soil on the front of a wall to slight displacement of the wall towards filling.
