Technical paper: Behaviour of shallow inclined anchorages in cohesionless sand

R C Harvey, BSc(Eng), PhD, MICE and E Burley, BSc(Eng), PhD, MICE, Queen Mary College, University of London. This paper was first published in GE’s September 1973 edition.


The aim of the present investigation is to examine the behaviour of small-scale shallow inclined anchorages buried in sand having a negligible cohesive strength. A theoretical approach was formulated connecting the variables involved and predicting the ultimate pull-out force of the anchorages.
