K//A AND K//0 BEHIND ROTATING AND NON-YIELDING WALLS

This paper reports on the magnitudes and distribution of static at-rest stresses behind a rigid wall as a function of soil densification and on static active stresses mobilized behind a rigid wall rotating about its base. The experiments were conducted on the retaining wall system which is permanently affixed to the University of Washington shaking table which is described. The results are discussed for experiments performed on Ottawa sand, along with recommendations for designs.
