Conclusions and Recommendations


This research provided new information on symmetrical anchor plates with soil reinforcement and grid fixed reinforcement. Although it is not dedicated to any specific practical conditions in engineering practice, it is useful to research the various factors that influence the symmetrical anchor plate’s capacity when it is subjected to uplift forces. An analysis of the effects of various parameters has enabled a deeper understanding of the behavior of reinforced and grid fixed reinforced symmetrical anchor plates in sand when subjected to uplift loads. The failure shape for symmetrical anchor plates with embedment depth (L/D) of up to 4 is cylindrical despite variation in size, density, and reinforcement ...
