Abstract:

The dynamic counterpart of the passive earth pressure problem was investigated in a prelimi nary way both experimentally and theoretically. The experiments revehat the pattern of sand movements is quite different for static and for very rapid loadings. With rapid loadings, a crater is excavated behind the wall, presuma bly as the result of spalling of the cohesion less surface. Author
