EFFECTS OF KO AND OVERCONSOLIDATION ON UPLIFT CAPACITY

This paper presents the results of experimental and theoretical studies on the determination of the overconsolidation ratio and its effect on the uplift capacity of foundations, with special reference to screw anchors installed in sand. Based on data reported in the literature, a semi-empirical relationship is proposed to relate the uplift capacity of anchors installed in overconsolidated sand to those installed in normal consolidated sand. Good agreement was observed when present experimental results were compared with the results of a theory reported in the literature after incorporating the effect of the overconsolidation.
