In this study, it is compared various coefficients of subgrade reaction for application of numerical analysis based on measured data by using various theories and empirical formula. The ratio of the maximum and minimum value is 6.80 at the top of wall but it is 1.06 at the maximum displacement point depends on change of calculated coefficient of subgrade reaction. The data of displacement were generally similar considering an increment of a coefficient of subgrade reaction. And the results of comparison of the displacement at the maximum displacement point by numerical analysis and measured data show similar displacement shape.
