ANALYSIS OF PLANE RETAINING SCREENS - STANDARD DESIGN AND ELASTO-PLASTIC DESIGN

ANALYSE DES ECRANS PLANS DE SOUTENEMENT - CALCUL CLASSIQUE ET CALCUL ELASTO-PLATIQUE

The authors examine the standard design assumptions for plane retaining screens and conclude that they are not all verified; they outline a better approach presently available, called the elasto-plastic design, which uses the usual data plus the horizontal coefficient of subgrade reaction. The solution to the problem of a screen on an elasto-plastic soil and, in particular, the use of transfer matrices are outlined. Two examples: one of a slurry trench wall and the other of a sheet pile wall, with identical data, are given. In conclusion, the authors compare the above method to the finite element method.
