Bica, A.V.D., Clayton, C.R.I., Symons, I.F., Mair, R.J., Powrie, W., Simpson, B. and Gunn, M.J. (1991) Discussion. Limit equilibrium design methods for free embedded cantilever walls in granular materials Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers, 90, (1), pp. 209-229. (doi:10.1680/iicep.1991.13049).

Record type: Article


This Paper is fairly restricted in its subject matter, but, as will be discussed later, there areimplications which are common to most formsof geotechnical design. 49. The subject of the Paper is restricted to a simple wall type (Fig. 1) embedded in granular soil...
