ANALYSIS OF RETAINING STRUCTURES WITH SKEW REINFORCEMENT

A method of analyzing earth-retaining structures with skew reinforcement based on the principle of generalized plane-strain finite-element analysis is presented and it can calculate quasi-three-dimensional responses of the soil and the structural elements without resorting to a fully three-dimensional finite-element analysis. A significant reduction in computational effort with little loss in accuracy has been obtained. The developed method of analysis has been applied to investigate the effect of reinforcement skew angle associated with the Reinforced Earth retaining wall and the conventional tie-back concrete retaining wall.
