A METHOD OF ANALYSIS FOR HORIZONTALLY EMBEDDED ANCHORS IN AN ELASTIC SOIL

A general method is presented for the analysis of horizontally embedded anchors in an elastic soil. Provision is made in the analysis for the consideration of anchor shape, layer depth, anchor-soil interface condition, breakaway of the anchor from the underlying soil and interaction between groups of anchors. Application of the analytical technique is illustrated for strip and circular anchors, and these solutions are presented in the form of influence charts which may be used directly in hand calculations to predict the elastic load deflection behaviour of anchor plates for a wide variety of material and geometric conditions. /Author/TRRL/
