Present Situation on Retaining Wall Design

Present Situation on Retaining Wall Design

FOLLOWING Coulomb, a great number of papers appeared on Retaining Wall Design, until by 1930 the theoretical basis of earth pressure against stiff walls due to failing soil had largely been established. In contrast, little was known about the values of the soil constants to be used in the theory, or the influence of the type and degree of wall movement on the distribution of pressure on the structure. In consequence, theories were mainly confined to the classroom, while empirical rules or semi-empirical use of simple theorics served the practical basis of design. P.W. Rowe

Design and Load Carrying Capacity of Welded Design and Load Carrying Capacity of Welded Battened Str

A BATTENED strut is built up from two or more main members*, which carry the axial load, and which are held at a fixed distance by cross-members. F. Koenigsberger

Discussion on Tension Structures by H.A. Buchholdt

Discussion on Tension Structures by H.A. Buchholdt

Mr. Dorman: ‘Judging by the number of enquiries relating to the merits of various roofing systems received by the BCSA central office, Dr. Buchholdt is to be congratulated on producing a timely paper. It will be of considerable value to have this present study, with its summary of the state of the art in the design of tension structures, and one would certainly hope that this paper will go some way towards bridging the “credibility gap” between research and development activity on the one hand, and design practice on the other.'
