CENTRIFUGAL MODEL TESTS ON VERTICAL ANCHOR PLATES

The stress displacement behavior of vertical anchor plates and continuous anchor walls in dense sand when subjected to horizontal pull-out forces is presented. Results of a large number of centrifugal tests on 1 in. and 2 in. models subjected to accelerations of up to 40 gravities are presented and the effects of anchor geometry and embedment are examined. Experimental results are compared with recent theoretical and semiempirical design formulas using shear strengths derived from plane strain compression tests at the appropriate stress levels.
