Abstract

The present study deals with the displacement based seismic assessment of earth retaining structures. Detailed shaking table experiment has been performed on two different scaled down retaining wall models. The first set of shaking table experiment has been performed on base restrained retaining wall model, and the second set of shaking table experiment has been performed on a rotational base retaining wall model. It was observed from the shaking table experiment that inertial forces from backfill profoundly influence the seismic displacement of the earth retaining structures. Different dynamic properties of scaled down retaining wall models have also been studied with the shaking table expe..
