ANCHOR INCLINATION - ITS EFFECT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF A LABORATORY SCALE TIED-BACK RETAINING WALL

THIS PAPER REPORTS TWO SERIES OF TESTS WHICH WERE PERFORMED TO STUDY THE BEHAVIOR OF A 0.6M HIGH RETAINING WALL IN DRY SAND WHEN SUPPORTED BY MULTIPLE ROWS OF PRESTRESSED ANCHOR WIRES. IN THE FIRST SERIES, THE ANCHOR WIRES WERE INCLINED AT 0,15,30 AND 45 DEGREES FOR EACH OF THE THREE LEVELS OF ANCHORS. IN THE SECOND SERIES, THE TWO LOWER LEVELS OF ANCHOR WIRES REMAINED HORIZONTAL WHILE THE UPPER LEVEL WAS INCLINED SUCCESSIVELY AT 30,45 AND 60 DEGREES. THE EFFECT OF ANCHOR INCLINATION ON WALL MOVEMENT, SAND SUBSIDENCE, ANCHOR LOAD CHANGES AND EARTH PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION HAS BEEN INVESTIGATED AND SPECIFIC RESULTS ARE PRESENTED. /AUTHOR/
