Abstract

The results of scale model tests of uplift capacity of shallow and deep anchors in loose fully saturated sands are presented. The anchors were subjected to static, cyclic and post cyclic loading. The parameters tested included the effects of embedment ratio, anchor shape, relative soil density, amplitude and number of cycles, and post cyclic response to loading. The factors influencing the behavior of the anchors are discussed.

The Uplift Capacity of Anchors Embedded in Loose Sand

St. Louis, Missouri

The results of scale model tests of uplift capacity of shallow and deep anchors in loose fully saturated sands are presented. The anchors were subjected to static, cyclic and post cyclic loading. The parameters tested included the effects of embedment ratio, anchor shape, relative soil density, amplitude and number of cycles, and post cyclic response to loading. The factors influencing the behavior of the anchors are discussed.
