Abstract:

A 2-D, plane strain, clay-backfilled, retaining wall model study was performed in the centrifuge. Results compared well with SAC-2 finite element predictions of the model behavior using the bounding surface plasticity formulation. this study provides much needed data base for the validation of the bounding surface plasticity theory to model soft soil behavior and its interaction with structures.
