### Drift Factors & Distribution

Ca(0) = 0.67*γ h/(CbSs = 2.513
a) when Ca(0) < ( 0.8/Cb=1 ) : Ca(0)=0.8/Cb
b) when Ca(0) > ( 2/Cb=2.5 ): Ca(0)=2/Cb

#### Ca(0) = 2.5

xd = 2h = 2 m. But 3 m ≤ xd ≤ 9 m:

#### xd = 3 m

h' = h - CbCwSs/γ = 0.733m

Min dist where (Cw = 1.0) = 10*h' = 7.333 m

Obstruction effect limit = 3 Ss / γ = 1 m

( b = 10 m ) > ( 3*Ss / γ = 1 m )

Cw = 1
Ca(0) = 2.5

#### 0 < x ≤ ( xd = 3m )

Cw = 1
Ca(x) decreases linearly over 0 < x ≤ xd
Ca(x) = 2.5 - 0.5 * x   (with x in meters)

Cw = 1
Ca(xd) = 1

Cw = 1.0
Ca(x) = 1

#### SULS = 1.25[1(0.8*1.0*1*1)+1] = 2.25 kPa

##### SSLS = 0.9[1(0.8*1.0*1*1)+1] = 1.62 kPa
