Abstract

In the past decade the use of ground anchors in deep basements has increased in most parts of the world, while their applications in Singapore have been very limited so far because of their interference with adjacent properties. Empirical design methods which are adequate in most cases are still commonly used. Analytical design methods and finite element analysis (FEM) which give better insight into the soil-anchor interaction are gaining popularity. Post grouting is often used for anchors in residual soils and has been found successful. Some case histories from Singapore are presented in this paper.

Use of Ground Anchors in Residual Soils

St. Louis, Missouri

In the past decade the use of ground anchors in deep basements has increased in most parts of the world, while their applications in Singapore have been very limited so far because of their interference with adjacent properties. Empirical design methods which are adequate in most cases are still commonly used. Analytical design methods and finite element analysis (FEM) which give better insight into the soil-anchor interaction are gaining popularity. Post grouting is often used for anchors in residual soils and has been found successful. Some case histories from Singapore are presented in this paper.
