Rankine passive force due to cohesion φ  Pp( 2 ) = 2c K p H d = 2cH d tan  45 +   2 4. 4 Determination of Ppc (ϕ ≠ 0, γ = 0, q = 0, c ≠ 0): (a) forces per unit length of wedge bcfj; (b) stability of elastic wedge abc. 7, respectively. 5a shows the free body diagram of wedge bcfj. 4, the center of the log spiral of which bf is an arc is at a point O along line bf and not at b. This is because the minimum value of Ppγ has to be determined by several trials. Point O is only one trial center.

This zone is the Rankine passive zone. The slip lines in this zone make angles of ±(45 − ϕ/2) with the horizontal. 1. 1) Lines bf and fg are straight lines. Line fg actually extends up to the ground surface. Terzaghi assumed that the soil located above the bottom of the foundation could be replaced by a surcharge q = γDf. 1 Failure surface in soil at ultimate load for a continuous rough rigid foundation as assumed by Terzaghi. 2) where σ′ = effective normal stress c = cohesion The ultimate bearing capacity qu of the foundation can be determined if we consider faces ac and bc of the triangular wedge abc and obtain the passive force on each face required to cause failure.

1, for which α = 45 + ϕ/2 and the center of the arc of the logarithmic spiral cf lies on the line bf. 6. 1, the center of the logarithmic spiral is located at b. 7. 55 Source: Dewaikar, D. M. and B.
