Effect of lateral earth pressure on the limit load and settlement of the sand base of a plate
The results of a model experiment on loading the sand base of a plate with preassignment of various lateral earth pressures are examined. An increase of lateral earth pressure reduces the limit load on the base and under loads exceeding the initial critical load causes an increase of settlement of the plate. The reliability of the result obtained in the experiment is proved by a numerical analysis of the limit stress state at a point.
