Abstract

Ground anchors are devices used in many types of structures (on shore and offshore constructions); they can be oriented at different inclinations. Their roles are to resist tensile forces, stabilize and restrain the movement of engineered structure. The objective of this study is to propose a model which represents the mechanism of rupture of homogeneous soil (granular medium) around a single inclined ground anchor when it is tensioned and the determination of the collapse load thanks of the theory of limit analysis based on the kinematic approach in the case of criterion of Mohr-Coulomb taking into account of the mobilization of the soil in abutment in reaction to the loading.
