Paper Title:
Active Earth Pressure on Retaining Walls with Layered Cohesive Backfills and Considering Cracking
  Abstract

Based on the method of level-layer analysis, with the sliding harmonious condition of layered backfills considered , the theoretical answers to the unit earth pressures , the resultant earth pressures and the points of application of the resultant earth pressures on retaining walls with layered cohesive backfills are set up . The comparisons are made with Rankine’s formula.
