Seismic Response of Tieback Retaining Walls (Phase I) Publication URL: Full Document (pdf 1, KB) The current design practice used by WSDOT for the design of permanent tieback walls is to assume that the static design of a tieback wall retaining clayey soils provides an adequate reserve of strength to prevent failure during seismic loading.   Djabri M., Benmebarek S. () Seismic Response of Back-to-Back MSE Walls. In: Kallel A. et al. (eds) Recent Advances in Geo-Environmental Engineering, Geomechanics and Geotechnics, and Geohazards. CAJG Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (IEREK Interdisciplinary Series for Sustainable Development). Author: Mohamed Djabri, Sadok Benmebarek. This paper presents the results of a finite-element simulation of a flexible, cantilever retaining wall with dry and saturated backfill under earthquake loading, and the results are compared with that of a centrifuge test. It is found that bending moments in the wall increased significantly during earthquakes both when backfill is dry or saturated. SEISMIC RESPONSE OF TIEBACK WALLS: A PILOT STUDY. The results of a study on the seismic response of permanent tieback walls prepared for the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) are presented in this paper. The use of permanent walls in highway construction has expanded greatly during the past decade.

The seismic response of a 6-m-high braced basement and a 6-m free-standing cantilever wall retaining a compacted low plasticity clay was studied in a series of centrifuge tests. The models were built at a 1/36 scale and instrumented with accelerometers, strain gages and pressure sensors to monitor their by: 4. This paper presents the compilation of a survey on the response of tied-back retaining walls subjected to the Whittier, California earthquake on October 1, . Design of a tied-back retaining wall to resist earthquake loading. Worked example to accompany MBIE Guidance on the seismic design of retaining structures for residential sites in Greater Christchurch (Version 2) November Tied-back retaining walls were used originally as a substitute for braced retaining walls in deep excavations. wall the presentation is focused mainly on the seismic design of gravity retaining wall. (For details of other type the book “Foundation Analysis and Design” by J.E. Bowles;McGraw-Hill International Edition, may be referred). Type of Retaining Wall Failure To design retaining walls, it is necessary to know how wall can fail.

Adapted: Leung et al, In excavations with no lateral support the wall deforms as a cantilever and the resulting distribution of . The model walls are reinforced with geotextile layers. The geotextile used is a polypropylene multifilament woven fabric. The properties of geotextile are as given in Table te tensile strength of the geotextile is determined by the wide width strip method, as per ASTM D (), as kN/ load–elongation response of the geotextile obtained from wide Cited by: DEM Simulation of the Seismic Response of Gravity Retaining Walls.
