ABSTRACT

In the present study behavior of different footing anchors in reinforced soil subjected to
vertical pullout loads were investigated. The plate anchors were considered as footings
with their axis vertical and the study was made to plate anchors in cohesive non
swelling clays. To carry out these studies number of laboratory tests were conducted on
anchors of different shapes (circular, square and rectangular) and sizes in reinforced
and non reinforced soil using three different Geosynthetics.

It was concluded that optimum position for the geosynthetics is d/B = 0.5, where B is
the least dimension of the footing and d is the distance between footing and
geosynthetics. It was also observed that with the use of geosynthetics at this position
there was an increase of 25% to 50% in pull out force for different types of footings
under different conditions.
