Introduction to Rigidly Framed Earth Retaining Structures (RFERS).- Classical Earth Pressure Theory Related to Framed Structures.- Closed-Form Expressions for Lateral Deflection of Rigid Frames.- Case Study of a Full Scale RFERS in Service.- Relationship between Temperature and Earth Pressure for RFERS.- Numerical Analysis of Instrumented RFERS.- Parametric Study of Earth Pressure.
Structures placed on hillsides often present a number of challenges and a limited number of economical choices for site design. An option sometimes employed is to use the building frame as a retaining element, comprising a Rigidly Framed Earth Retaining Structure (RFERS). The relationship between temperature and earth pressure acting on RFERS, is explored in this monograph through a 4.5 year monitoring program of a heavily instrumented in service structure. The data indicated that the coefficient of earth pressure behind the monitored RFERS had a strong linear correlation with temperature. The study also revealed that thermal cycles, rather than lateral earth pressure, were the cause of failure in many structural elements.
