static and seismic pressures for design of retaining walls by guoxi wu, ph.d., p. eng. a presentation to bc hydro generation engineering on september 27, 2017 modified pages 64 and 65 in december 2017 for publishing
new zealand is a high earthquake hazard region and earthquake considerations are integral to the design of the built environment in new zealand. the effects of earthquake shaking need to always be considered in geotechnical engineering practice including the design of retaining structures observations of retaining wall performance during earthquakes indicates that well-built retaining walls
pseudo static method is the factor of safety for sliding: = most commonly used method for the analysis of retaining wall under earthquake conditions. this method ignores the factor of safety for overturning: cyclic nature of the earthquake and treats it as additional static force acting laterally upon the retaining wall, and it is easy to
every retaining wall supports a 'wedge' of soil.the wedge is defined as the soil which extends beyond the failure plane of the soil type present at the wall site, and can be calculated once the soil friction angle is known. as the setback of the wall increases, the size of the sliding wedge is reduced.
dynamic i.e., seismic analysis and design of retaining walls. several earth pressure models have been developed over the years to integrate the dynamic earth pressure with the static earth pressure and to improve the design of retaining wall in seismic regions. among all the models, mononobe-
combined steel sheet pile wall figure 2 has been carried out with various soils and earthquake intensities to confirm the results of the pre-study. towards performance-based design of steel sheet piles retaining walls in seismic areas in current practice, steel sheet piling ssp retaining wall structures are usually designed using user-friendly
the code or standard that followed by designer play an important role in deciding whether the seismic design of retaining wall is required or not. the earthquake design necessity is argued by some. this is because, apart from waterfront wall where liquefaction is a possibility and walls which designed unsatisfactorily for static loads, evidence
seismic analysis of retaining walls, buried structures, embankments, and integral abutments final report july 2005 submitted by husam najm, assistant professor suhail albhaisi, graduate research assistant hani nassif, associate professor parham khoshkbari, graduate research assistant predict extreme earthquake events for new jersey and the
retaining wall structures will result in tremendous losses of properties and lives. therefore analysis and design of these structures against earthquake is vital. this paper discusses about 3d nonlinear analysis of retaining wall structures under earthquake. dynamic finite element analysis method is one of the most

retaining walls topics 24.1 introduction 26.4 gravity retaining-wall design for earthquake conditions 26.5 mechanically stabilized retaining walls a similar type of analysis may be used for gravity walls, as shown in figure 7. 3b. however, coulombs theory also may be used, as shown in figure 7. 3c.
seismic design of earth retaining structures by atop lego, m.tech struct. ssw e/z ap, pwd; itanagar introduction the problem of retaining soil is one the oldest in the geotechnical engineering; some of the earliest and most fundamental principles of soil mechanics were developed to allow rational design of retaining walls.
this paper describes 3-d finite element dynamic analysis of retaining wall structures with consideration of the soil-structure interaction. purpose of this study is to reduce damages due to earthquake in such structures. for this reason, finite
