What does the Support Force Graph show?

It is a common misconception that the pile/support force diagrams are soil/pile interaction forces.  Slide does not give soil/pile interaction forces, and RS2 is required in order to do that.  The hatched figure is simply the pile force diagram drawn on the side of the pile.
