The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the vertical pullout capacity of a horizontal circular anchor plate embedded in soil, using the plasticity theory as developed by Sokolovskii 1960. A mathematical model for soil-structure interaction was used to generate slip line fields compatible with the boundary conditions of the anchor pullout problem. To see if the solution for a given set of boundary conditions was physically admissible, computer-generated plots of slip line fields were obtained. If the slip line field was permissible, i.e., no overlapping of characteristic lines. The pullout capacity was then calculated. A conventional Coulomb sliding wedge graphical solution was performed. The results of the hand solution closely approximate the computer results. Author
