Geostatic Stresses Due to soil’s self weight 2. Induced Stresses Due to added loads (structures) 3.

The Mohr Circle 1 21 The Mohr Circle – Principal Stresses Planes A and B are called principal planes when there are no shear stresses (only normal stresses) acting on them. s1 = major principal stress s3 = minor principal stress The Mohr Circle Direction of max principal stresses is 17 degrees c.c. from the vertical Effective Stress Mohr Circle board Seepage Force board Seepage Force - Example board
