Anchors are primarily used in the construction of foundations of earth-supported and earth-retaining structures. The fundamental reason for using earth anchors in construction is to transmit the outwardly directed load to the soil at a greater depth and/or farther away from the structure. Although earth anchors have been used in practice for several hundred years, proper theoretical developments for purposes of modern engineering designs have taken place only during the past 40 to 45 years. This geotechnical engineering book summarizes most theoretical and experimental works directed toward the development of proper relationships for ultimate and allowable holding capacity of earth anchors.Key FeaturesA discussion on single-helix screw anchors in sand has been added to Chapter 6Two new chapters have been added: Chapter 9, Suction and Caisson Anchors, and Chapter 10, Geo-AnchorsA summary section has been included for each chapterSelf-assessment multiple-choice questions, followed by answers, are given at the end of each chapterDetails horizontal, vertical and inclined anchor plates, helical anchors, and anchor pilesReviews the failure mechanism in soil located around the anchor as well as various theories to calculate the ultimate and allowable loadsIncludes laboratory and field test results which are required to supplement and verify the theories in the bookWAV offers downloadable pdf slides for classroom instruction - available from the Web Added Value(TM) Download Resource Center at www. jrosspub.com
