Kumar, J and Rao, Subba KS (1997) Passive pressure coefficients, critical failure surface and its kinematic admissibility. In: Geotechnique, 47 (1). pp. 185-192.Full text not available from this repository.
Using a combination of a logarithmic spiral and a straight line as a failure surface, comprehensive charts have been developed to determine the passive earth pressure coefficients and the positions of the critical failure surface for positive as well as negative wall friction angles. Translational movement of the wall has been examined in detail, considering the soil as either an associated flow dilatant material or a non-dilatant material, to determine the kinematic admissibility of the limit equilibrium solutions.
