The assumptions made in the derivation of the formula for the design soil resistance are considered. It is shown that in the conditions of the plane problem, taking into account the coefficient of lateral soil pressure leads to lower values of the initial critical load and, consequently, to a decrease in the design resistance. The equation of limiting equilibrium is implemented in the MathCad software package, which makes it possible to obtain isolines of deviation angles at any depth from the applied uniformly distributed load. To determine the initial critical load, a formula is given that takes into account the coefficient of lateral soil pressure K0. In the final part of the article, the solution to the problem is given according to the formula of N. P. Puzyrevsky and according to the formula derived by the author, taking into account K0, the difference in the isolines of the deflection angles is presented, and an analysis of a similar problem in the Plaxis 2D software package is carried out.
