Spreadsheets for BS8002 earth pressure and foundation bearing capacity calculations

In 2001 Institution of Structural Engineers set up a committee to draft a manual for the design of earth retaining structures to BS8002. Although a lot of useful work was done, the project was never completed.

Material I prepared for the manual is available here.

Earth retaining structures

Notes on retaining wall design

*  Earth pressure coefficients

* Calculation of ground bearing capacity

* Pressures caused by compaction

* Slope stability calculations

Worked Examples of retaining wall design to BS8002

Worked examples to show the application of BS8002. Each example also shows the same wall designed to CP2, for comparison.
