Abstract

This chapter presents the results of parametric finite element analyses performed to explore the relationship between earth pressure and the stiffness of Rigidly Framed Earth Retaining Structures (RFERS). A plane strain model was employed. The stages of construction were incorporated in the analysis to simulate an initial stage where a structural frame is first completed followed by the addition of backfill soil in several stages. The displacement of the structures, as well as the earth pressure and resultant load developed behind them were obtained to examine the relationship between the stiffness of the retaining structure and the development of lateral earth pressure in the retained soil mass.
