THIS PUBLICATION INCLUDES SIX REPORTS DEALING WITH LATERAL EARTH PRESSURES. (1) BROMS,B; LATERAL EARTH PRESSURES DUE TO COMPACTION OF COHESIONLESS SOILS. (2) BROMS,B & INGELSSON,I; EARTH PRESSURE AGAINST THE ABUTMENTS OF A RIGID FRAME BRIDGE . (3) BROMS,B & INGELSSON,I; LATERAL EARTH PRESSURE ON A BRIDGE ABUTMENT. (4) REHNMAN,S-E & BROMS,B; LATERAL PRESSURES ON BASEMENT WALL. RESULTS FROM FULL-SCALE LOADING TESTS. (5) SANDEGREN,E, SAHLSTROM,P.O & STILLE,H; BEHAVIOUR OF ANCHORED SHEET-PILE WALL EXPOSED TO FROST ACTION. (6) SANDQVIST,G; BACK-TIED SHEET PILE WALL IN FRICTION SOIL. DEFORMATIONS AND DRAG FORCES DUE TO PILING AND FREEZING. THE FIRST REPORT IS A THEORETICAL STUDY OF LATERAL EARTH PRESSURES CAUSED BY COMPACTION AND A NEW METHOD OF DETERMINING LATERAL EARTH PRESSURES ON RIGID UNYIELDING STRUCTURES IS PRESENTED. IN THE OTHER REPORTS, RESULTS OF EARTH PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS ON RIGID AND FLEXIBLE WALLS UNDER DIFFERENT TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS ARE PRESENTED. PAPERS (2) AND (3) SHOULD BE COMPARED IN THIS RESPECT. IN (4) FULL- SCALE TESTS ON A BASEMENT WALL ARE DESCRIBED, AND IN THE TWO LAST PAPERS THE BEHAVIOUR OF TWO ANCHORED SHEET PILE WALLS DUE TO FROST ACTION IS STUDIED AND DISCUSSED. THE SIX REPORTS ARE REPRINTS FROM: (1) PROC. 4TH CONF. ON SOIL MECH. &.FOUND. ENGNG., BUDAPEST 1971. (2) GEOTECHNIQUE 21(1971):1 (3-6) PROC. 5TH EUROPEAN CONF. ON SOIL MECH. &. FOUND. ENGNG., MADRID 1972, VOL.1-2. SEE ALSO IRRD ABSTRACTS NOS. 201359, 201366 AND 201367, WHICH COVER PAPERS 4, 5 AND 6.
