A basic physical experimental research of lateral passive pressure is in progress at the Institute. The research is composed of three doubles of the same experiments with three basic retaining wall movements: rotations about the toe and top and translative motion. The experiment E5/0,1 with passive pressure and pressure at rest during wall rotation about the toe was carried out in 1st half 2012 and it was the first of the same experiment double (the 2 nd one was the experiment E6/0,1 finished in the early 2013. Both experiments together should prove a real behaviour of non-cohesive mass acting on moving wall. The behaviour appears distinct from a theory of EUROCODE 7-1 contemporaneously used. Each of experiments has brought a huge data quantity. The paper shows mass deformations and slip surfaces of the experimental sandy mass.
