Abstract

Anchor slab retaining wall is a kind of retaining structure, which consists of prefabricated rib-columns, panel slabs, tie-bars and anchor slabs embedded in earth fill. Since the structure was first used and developed in China in 1974, many such structure have been built on railways and other engineering projects. The reviewer of Second International Conference on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering gave a comments about this structure as follows: "Chinese method anchor slab the construction should interest the western world". Ba-Yu-Quan anchor slab retaining wall has been instrumented to measure the load on the tie-bar, the horizontal displacement of the rib-columns, the horizontal earth pressure acting at the panel slabs, and the backfill settlement at different positions. This paper presents project description, construction of the project, data obtained from field observations and the comparison result with analysis and predicted values.

The Case Record of Ba-Yu-Quan Anchor Slab Retaining Wall

Anchor slab retaining wall is a kind of retaining structure, which consists of prefabricated rib-columns, panel slabs, tie-bars and anchor slabs embedded in earth fill. Since the structure was first used and developed in China in 1974, many such structure have been built on railways and other engineering projects. The reviewer of Second International Conference on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering gave a comments about this structure as follows: "Chinese method anchor slab the construction should interest the western world". Ba-Yu-Quan anchor slab retaining wall has been instrumented to measure the load on the tie-bar, the horizontal displacement of the rib-columns, the horizontal earth pressure acting at the panel slabs, and the backfill settlement at different positions. This paper presents project description, construction of the project, data obtained from field observations and the comparison result with analysis and predicted values.
