Abstract

In this paper, the authors examine the influence of the mode of deformation of a rigid retaining wall on the earth pressure behind the wall. The earth pressures behind a nondisplacing wall, a wall translating toward or away from the backfill and behind a rocking wall are examined. The finite element method is used in modeling a gravity wall retaining a dry-cohesionless backfill. The finite element analysis show that the magnitude and the distribution of the earth pressure depend on the mode of the wall displacement. This study shows also the importance of the frequency of the wall/soil system on the magnitude of the earth pressure behind the wall.
