VERTICAL UPLIFT CAPACITY OF HORIZONTAL ANCHORS. DISCUSSIONS AND CLOSURE

Two discussions of a paper with the aforementioned title by Rao and Kumar, published in this journal (Volume 120, Number 7, July 1994), are presented. Discusser Bouazza compares his experimental findings with the theoretical analysis obtained by the authors. Based on this comparison, Bouazza does not concur that the authors' theory can accurately predict anchor pullout in sands. The second discussion focuses on the breakout factors and assumed failure mechanism. Discusser Dicken comments that although reasonable agreement exists between the authors' theoretical breakout factors and the discusser's centrifuge tests, considerable doubt concerning the reality of the authors' assumed failure mechanism exists. Discussions are followed by closure from the authors.
