Abstract

Thirty six anchors, corresponding approximately to five per cent of the total anchors of a retaining wall, were instrumented using electrical load cells, aiming to study the variation of the applied load with time associated with the sequencing of construction. It was observed that the average total loss was 25% of the average applied load, which consisted of three major component: rapid loss; long term loss and loss due to adjacent anchors loading.

Load Measurements of an Anchored Retaining Wall

St. Louis, Missouri

Thirty six anchors, corresponding approximately to five per cent of the total anchors of a retaining wall, were instrumented using electrical load cells, aiming to study the variation of the applied load with time associated with the sequencing of construction. It was observed that the average total loss was 25% of the average applied load, which consisted of three major component: rapid loss; long term loss and loss due to adjacent anchors loading.
