Document Type: Journal Paper


The Purpose of this paper is to present some recent laboratory model test results on the breakout resistance of shallow horizontal rectangular model anchor plates in loose granular soil and to study the variation of breakout factors and critical depths of embedment (for shallow and deep anchor behavior) with length-to-width ratios of the plates.
