ANCHORING EFFORTS ON OSAKA QUAY WALL AT LE HAVRE HARBOUR

Osaka quay wall at Le Havre harbor is a diaphragm wall anchored with bars to a sheetpile wall. Deformations of the anchoring bars and diaphragm wall are monitored during its main construction stages. Measurements have shown how the anchoring bars behave. Concerning axial forces in the bars, it appeared that after dredging, the anchoring bars behave like nails used for nailed walls. Starting from the anchoring point, the axial forces first slightly increase, from the values applied by the wall up to maximuim values obtained at mid distance between the diaphragm wall and the deadman. Then the forces decrease due to shear friction along the bar. It is also shown that bending moments develop at both ends of the bar, due to diferential settlement between the soil and the diaphragm wall and between the soil and the deadman.
