EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF PASSIVE AND ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE (IN FRENCH)

A TEST IS DESCRIBED IN WHICH A PYREX SAND MODEL WAS SUBJECTED TO OVERLOADING. BY MEANS OF PHOTOELASTICITY, THE SAND PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION ON THE SCREEN WAS DETERMINED, AND ITS EVOLUTION OBSERVED WHEN THE SCREEN WAS SLIGHTLY MOVED. RESULTS SHOW THAT THE SOIL ACTIVE ON A RETAINING WALL CAN VARY GREATLY IF A SLIGHT DISPLACEMENT OF THE WALL OCCURS. /A/LCPC/RRL/
