Introduction

Abstract

Anchors with symmetrical plates are typically fixed to structures and embedded in the ground to effective depths so that they can resist uplift load. This book focuses on improvements to the existing symmetrical anchor plate system by introducing geosynthetics and grid fixed reinforcement (GFR) as a new system for ground anchoring. Symmetrical anchor plates can be three different shapes, namely square, circular, and rectangular. GFR is a new tied-up system of innovative design, made from fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) which anchors the geogrid into the soil. This book evaluates the performance of soil reinforcement and soil anchor plates in cohesionless soils.
