Shiau, J. S. and Hobson, M. A. (2011) Modeling uplift of plate anchor. In: Continuum and Distinct Element Numerical Modeling in Geomechanics, 14-16 Feb 2011, Melbourne, Australia.
Much of the soil anchor design currently available is based on empiricism. With the successful development of many advanced modeling software packages nowadays, it is not impossible to incorporate numerical analyses into daily design practice. This paper aims to use FLAC for this purpose and present the results of FLAC study to estimate the pullout capacity for horizontal plate anchors. For verification purposes, FLAC results have also been compared with existing solutions such as the numerical upper and lower bound limit analyses and the experimental solutions. A standard input script, using FISH program, is developed to facilitate the parametric study of the problem. The script file is user-friendly and can be very helpful to design engineers.
