Chapter 5

Comparison Between Existing Theories and Experimental Works


This chapter presents a comparison of theoretical and experimental values for the experimental and numerical program conducted. Chapter 2, Literature Review, explains previous theoretical research results, which were dedicated to the limiting ultimate uplift capacity of symmetrical anchor plates, their breakout factor, and failure zones. Researchers such as Balla (1961), Meyerhof and Adams (1968), Vesic (1971), Rowe and Davis (1982), Murray and Geddes (1987), Sarac (1989), Smith (1998), Krishna (2000), Frgic and Marovic (2003), Merifield and Sloan (2006), Dickin and Laman (2007), Kumar and Bhoi (2008), and Kuzer and Kumar (2009) determined the parametric relationship ...
