USE OF STABL PROGRAM IN TIED-BACK WALL DESIGN. DISCUSSION

This is a discussion of paper of the above title by A. Boghrat, published in Volume 115 No. 4 (April 1989) of this journal. Discusser Carpenter corrects several points made in the paper that are misleading with regard to the change in factor of safety with different tie back free lengths. The discusser Sharma notes that all the potential critical surfaces are outside the anchor zone and thus fail to effectively demonstrate the uniqe 'tied-back' option in STABL. The discusser has offered advice on STABL to its users and offers a better approach to assess the overall stability of anchored retaining walls. The discussions are followed by a closure by the author.
