Uplift Behavior of Shallow Soil Anchors—An Overview

by Fred H. Kulhawy, Cornell Univ, Ithaca, NY, USA,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Uplift Behavior of Anchor Foundations in Soil

Abstract: An overview is presented of the static uplift (tensile) behavior of shallow anchors used for foundations in soil. Basic anchor types are described, and their general installation and behavioral characteristics are discussed. Anchor failure modes are evaluated, from which a general and consistent framework is presented for the geotechnical analysis and design of the different anchor types. Recommended criteria for design parameter assessment also are included.
