Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The findings of a literature review of anchor design are presented to give a synopsis of the numerous theoretical and empirical techniques available for predicting anchor capacity. The review revealed that anchor capacity is related to anchor configuration, soil characteristics and depth of anchor embedment and that the mode of soil failure as a result of anchor loading is dependent upon soil type and state as well as on the ratio of the depth of anchor embedment to anchor diameter. As a result it was found that no single equation can be used to predict anchor capacity under all soil conditions or anchor embedment depths.
