Item description for Earth Anchors (J. Ross Publishing Classics) by Braja M. Das...
Anchors are primarily used in construction of foundations of earth-supported and earth-retaining structures. The anchors are used in construction to transmit the outwardly directed load to soil at a greater depth and/or farther from the structure. Although earth anchors have been used in practice for several hundred years, proper theoretical developments for purposes of modern engineering design have taken place only during the past few decades. This book summarizes most of the theoretical and experimental works regarding the ultimate and allowable holding capacity of earth anchors. An unabridged J. Ross Publishing republication of the edition published by Elsevier Science Publishers B.V., Amsterdam, 1990, 242pp. Key Features - Discusses in detail horizontal, vertical and inclined anchor plates, helical anchors, and anchor piles - Presents discussions on the failure mechanism in soil located around the anchor as well as various theories to calculate the ultimate and allowable loads - Provides laboratory and field test results which are required to supplement and verify the theories
