Abstract

This paper discusses the effect of the mode of movement of a retaining wall on the dynamic earth pressure generated by horizontal ground vibrations. The discussion is based on the reported results of analytical and experimental investigations on the subject. The results of the investigations are in good agreement and they indicate that the magnitude and distribution of the dynamic earth pressure do not depend only on the characteristics of the ground motion, but also on the possible mode of movement of the retaining wall. The research shows that the distribution of the dynamic earth pressure is always non-hydrostatic and in most cases its resultant acts above the lower third-point of the wall height.
