Murali Krishna, Study of Seismically Induced Permanent Displacement of Gravity Retaining Wall
The self-balance retaining wall is composed with gravity retaining wall
in the upper part of the structure and antisliding pile in the lower part of the structure.
proposed a theoretical model of seismic rotational stability of a gravity retaining wall
with consideration of the influence of embedment depth [10,11].
A gravity retaining wall
depends largely on the weight of the structure to resist the overturning forces created by the soil pressures.
External stability analysis is conducted in the same manner as a conventional gravity retaining wall
design by reviewing three failure modes: sliding, overturning, and bearing capacity.
The wall system acts as a gravity retaining wall
, relying on the weight and width of the units to resist retained soil loads.
