ULTIMATE RESISTANCE OF VERTICAL PLATE ANCHORS IN CLAY

Braja M. Das, Miguel Picorness

Abstract


Laboratory model test results for the ultimate pullout resistance of vertical square anchors embedded in saturated or near saturated clay have been presented. The undrained shear strength of the clay and the embedment ratio of the anchors have been varied. Based on the model test results, an empirical parametric relationship for estimation of the ultimate pullout resistance of shallow and deep square anchors has been presented.
