Effectively Calculate the Pressures of Soil When it comes to designing and constructing retaining structures that are safe and durable, understanding the interaction between soil and structure is at the foundation of it all. Laying down the groundwork for the non-specialists looking to gain an understanding of the background and issues surrounding geotechnical engineering, Earth Pressure and Earth-Retaining Structures, Third Edition introduces the mechanisms of earth pressure, and explains the design requirements for retaining structures. This text makes clear the uncertainty of parameter and partial factor issues that underpin recent codes. It then goes on to explain the principles of the geotechnical design of gravity walls, embedded walls, and composite structures. What’s New in the Third Edition: The first half of the book brings together and describes possible interactions between the ground and a retaining wall. It also includes materials that factor in available software packages dealing with seepage and slope instability, therefore providing a greater understanding of design issues and allowing readers to readily check computer output. The second part of the book begins by describing the background of Eurocode 7, and ends with detailed information about gravity walls, embedded walls, and composite walls. It also includes recent material on propped and braced excavations as well as work on soil nailing, anchored walls, and cofferdams. Previous chapters on the development of earth pressure theory and on graphical techniques have been moved to an appendix. Earth Pressure and Earth-Retaining Structures, Third Edition is written for practicing geotechnical, civil, and structural engineers and forms a reference for engineering geologists, geotechnical researchers, and undergraduate civil engineering students.

Retaining structures form an important component of many civil engineering and geotechnical engineering projects. Careful design and construction of these structures is essential for safety and longevity. This new edition provides significantly more support for non-specialists, background to uncertainty of parameters and partial factor issues that underpin recent codes (e.g. Eurocode 7), and comprehensive coverage of the principles of the geotechnical design of gravity walls, embedded walls and composite structures. It is written for practising geotechnical, civil and structural engineers; and forms a reference for engineering geologists, geotechnical researchers and undergraduate civil engineering students.

Structures placed on hillsides often present a number of challenges and a limited number of economical choices for site design. An option sometimes employed is to use the building frame as a retaining element, comprising a Rigidly Framed Earth Retaining Structure (RFERS). The relationship between temperature and earth pressure acting on RFERS, is explored in this monograph through a 4.5 year monitoring program of a heavily instrumented in service structure. The data indicated that the coefficient of earth pressure behind the monitored RFERS had a strong linear correlation with temperature. The study also revealed that thermal cycles, rather than lateral earth pressure, were the cause of failure in many structural elements. The book demonstrates that depending on the relative stiffness of the retained soil mass and that of the structural frame, the developed lateral earth pressure, during thermal expansion, can reach magnitudes several times larger than those determined using classical earth pressure theories. Additionally, a nearly perpetual lateral displacement away from the retained soil mass may occur at the free end of the RFERS leading to unacceptable serviceability problems. These results suggest that reinforced concrete structures designed for the flexural stresses imposed by the backfill soil will be inadequately reinforced to resist stresses produced during the expansion cycles. Parametric studies of single and multi-story RFERS with varying geometries and properties are also presented to investigate the effects of structural stiffness on the displacement of RFERS and the lateral earth pressure developed in the soil mass. These studies can aid the reader in selecting appropriate values of lateral earth pressure for the design of RFERS. Finally, simplified closed form equations that can be used to predict the lateral drift of RFERS are presented.

The past 10 years have seen considerable advances in the practice of retaining wall design and construction. This book makes a valuable and significant contribution to the literature available to practising civil and structural engineers, not only in the field of general earth-retaining structure theory, but also by presenting the results of a large number of case studies of actual retaining wall analysis, design and construction. The reader will find this volume particularly valuable not only because of the large number of papers reporting the behaviour of the actual retaining walls during construction and thereafter, but also because of the inclusion of more fundamental papers - for example, dealing with the effects of groundwater on passive earth pressure, and integrating the influence of shear and overturning forces in the calculation of bearing capacity), and because of the wealth of information contained on the practical aspects of the numerical modelling of retaining structures of all types.

The problem of earth pressure on retaining structures is one of the oldest in soil mechanics. This volume comprises tables which facilitate calculations in problems of limit equilibrium. These tables provide coefficients which are extreme values in which the soil still is in equilibrium. They are or

Foundations and Earth Structures is written primarily for anundergraduate course in foundation analysis and design. It shouldalso appeal to graduate students and practicing engineers. Thereare three primary objectives for this textbook. Firstly, to presentbasic concepts and fundamental principles that are necessary tounderstand the background of the methods employed in foundationdesign. Secondly, to inform students on the values and limitationsof popular methods of analyses in foundation engineering. Thirdly,to provide a framework for students to carry out simple foundationdesign and appreciate the design process. This is a textbook and not a design manual. Consequently, itemphasizes fundamentals rather than procedures. However, practicalprocedures, where appropriate, are included to allow students totransit into "office" design. The topics are sequenced so as not torush the students into design but to build a solid foundation inthe fundamentals so that they could understand the implications ofthe assumptions in the design.

A basic yet comprehensive presentation of using the lightweight-fill and compressible-inclusion functions of geofoam to reduce lateral pressures on all types of earth-retaining structures under both gravity and seismic loading. An introduction to using geofoam to reduce vertical earth forces on underground conduits as well as beneath structural slabs on expansive soil and rock is also included.

There are always cases in which retaining structures have to be constructed close to a stable rock face. In such cases, the fill between the retaining structure and the rock face is partly supported by friction on the wall and the rock face; subsequently, the theoretically assumed wedge of sliding soil cannot develop, and the vertical stress in the fill and the horizontal stress on the structure are reduced. Finite element analyses (FEA) were performed for this thesis to evaluate the effect of the interface friction on the magnitude and the distribution of the lateral earth pressure acting on the retaining structure. The analyses show that Coulomb's theory is very conservative and that modified silo theory can be used to evaluate the lateral earth pressure when the fill width is small. Finite element analyses also show that different base material and the friction angle between the fill-base interface may influence the magnitude and the distribution of the lateral earth pressure to a great degree.
