This paper presents the results of numerical analyses of the uplift capacity of square anchor plates in layered soil. Many factors, such as the effects of the embedment ratio of anchors (H/B), the thickness of granular fill layer (d1/d2) and the area ratio of fill have been investigated by finite element method (FEM). The numerical analyses performed by using PLAXIS 3D. The influence of these parameters on failure mechanism and the uplift capacity of anchor is discussed.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Uncontrolled Keywords: uplift behavior, layered soil, embedment ratio, finite element method.
