Experimental and Numerical Results


This chapter presents the results of the uplift responses based on experimental test series and numerical analysis, as discussed in the previous chapters. The numerical analyses were performed using PLAXIS as a finite element program. The research involved the numerical and experimental aspects of the uplift capacity of symmetrical anchor plates during uplift tests and their displacement on non-reinforced, reinforced, and grid fixed reinforcement (GFR) reinforced soil. Each aspect of the research is divided into the test series to enable a more systematic approach towards the analysis. Sand was used as an embedment medium in this research. In order to obtain a criterion for density, loosely ...
