Insight into seismic earth and water pressures against caisson quay walls
free download

Motivated by the need to explain the large displacement and rotation that numerous caisson- type quay walls suffered in the port of Kobe during the devastating 1995 earthquake, a detailed numerical analysis is presented for the response of such a wall from Rokko Island

Rankine solution for seismic earth pressures on L-shaped retaining walls
free download

ABSTRACT An exact limit-stress solution is presented for the problem of seismic earth pressures on L-shaped cantilever walls retaining dry cohesionless soil. It is shown that the problem can be analyzed by means of a Rankine stress field in the backfill for an infinite

Evaluation of seismic earth pressures at the passive side
free download

ABSTRACT: Estimation of seismic earth pressures constitutes an important subject of research in civil engineering. Previous studies showed strong dependence of earth pressure coefficient on lateral strain constraint of the backfill, ie, the wall displacement has a

Experimental results on earth pressures on rigid wall under seismic condition
free download

SUMMARY This paper contains the experimental results of a series of shaking table tests of a model of gravity retaining wall, with the purpose to investigate the distribution of dynamic earth pressure in dry cohesionless backfill and the effects of the soil-wall friction on the

Seismic earth pressures on retaining structures in cohesionless soils

16. ABSTRACT Observations of the performance of basement walls and retaining structures in recent earthquakes show that failures of basement or deep excavation walls in earthquakes are rare even if the structures were not designed for the actual intensity of the

Centrifuge Modeling of Seismic Soil-Structure-Interaction and Lateral Earth Pressures for Large Near-Surface Underground Structures
free download

ABSTRACT: The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is planning the construction of a new buried reservoir in Southern California. The current state of practice for evaluating the seismic response of underground structures relies heavily on simplified

Distribution of seismic earth pressures on gravity walls by wave-based stress limit analysis
free download

ABSTRACT: A closed-form stress plasticity solution is presented for earthquake-induced earth pressures and distribution of these pressures on inflexible retaining walls. The solution is essentially an approximate yield line approach that overand under-estimates active and

Estimation of seismic earth pressures against rigid retaining structures with rotation mode
