Investigation of seismic performance on retaining walls
For the secure construction of the wall used for retaining purposes in earthquake-prone areas, the seismic effect of both active and passive pressures on the ground must be determined. The impact of waves caused by Rayleigh is not taken into account by pseudo-static and pseudo-dynamic approaches. About 67% of the entire energy from earthquakes is made up of rayleigh waves. In the present study, the active as well as passive ground pressures are compared using a new pseudo-dynamic approach developed by Deepankar Chaudhary Amey Deepak Katdare. This most recent pseudo-dynamic technique takes into account waves produced by Rayleigh, waves caused by shear, and principal waves. The prerequisite of zero pressure on the earth's surface is accomplished by using this technique.
