Design and Construction of Soil Anchor Plates Excerpt :

Primarily designed and constructed to resist outwardly directed loads imposed on the foundation of a structure, anchor plates play an important role in the design of structures (including seawalls, transmission towers, tunnels, buried pipelines, and retaining walls). Design and Construction of Soil Anchor Plates focuses on the various theories based on the design and construction techniques of anchor plates in soil mechanics. The focus of this reference is on design methods, theories, and procedures for constructing permanent or temporary ground anchors and anchored systems. Topics include: General Requirements of Vertical Anchor Plates and Design Criteria, Estimation of Ultimate Capacity in Vertical Anchor Plates, General Requirements of Vertical Anchor Plates and Design Criteria, Type and Length of Inclined Anchor Plates, Early Theories on Anchor Plates in Multi-Layers Soil, and Basic Theories on Passive Pressure in Vertical Anchor Plates. With this reference, researchers and designers will find a valuable guide to the various theories, techniques, and equations for anchor design. Basic theories on passive pressure in vertical anchor plates Estimation of ultimate capacity in vertical anchor plates Uplift capacity for shallow anchor plates Requirements of vertical anchor plates and design criteria Type and length of inclined anchor plates

Soil Reinforcement and Symmetrical Anchor Plates Excerpt :

The design of many structures need to foundation systems to resist vertical or horizontal uplift loads. As part of a larger effort to improve the performance of foundation systems, the development of guidelines for anchor system design and installation. The different structures like transmission towers, tunnels, sea walls, buried pipelines; retaining wall and etc are subjected to considerable uplift forces. In such cases, an absorbing and economic design solution may be obtained through the use of tension members. These elements, which are related to as anchors, are generally fixed to the structure and embedded in the ground to effective depth so that they can resist uplifting forces, will safety. Many researchers have investigated the influence of different parameters on the uplift response of horizontal anchors in sand.

Ground Improvement Excerpt :

The first book of its kind, providing over thirty real-life case studies of ground improvement projects selected by the worlds top experts in ground improvement from around the globe. Volume 3 of the highly regarded Elsevier Geo-engineering book series coordinated by the Series Editor: Professor John A Hudson FREng. An extremely reader friendly chapter format. Discusses wider economical and environmental issues facing scientists in the ground improvement. Ground improvement has been both a science and art, with significant developments observed through ancient history. From the use of straw as blended infill with soils for additional strength during the ancient Roman civilizations, and the use of elephants for compaction of earth dams during the early Asian civilizations, the concepts of reinforced earth with geosynthetics, use of electrokinetics and thermal modifications of soils have come a long way. The use of large and stiff stone columns and subsequent sand drains in the past has now been replaced by quicker to install and more effective prefabricated vertical drains, which have also eliminated the need for more expensive soil improvement methods. The early selection and application of the most appropriate ground improvement techniques can improve considerably not only the design and performance of foundations and earth structures, including embankments, cut slopes, roads, railways and tailings dams, but also result in their cost-effectiveness. Ground improvement works have become increasingly challenging when more and more problematic soils and marginal land have to be utilized for infrastructure development. This edited compilation contains a collection of Chapters from invited experts in various areas of ground improvement, who have illustrated the basic concepts and the applications of different ground improvement techniques using real projects that they have been involved in.
