Seismic Earth Pressures on Retaining Structures

Project funded by:   (2009)

PI: Nicholas Sitar, UC Berkeley
Description: The ultimate goal and vision is to perform paradigm changing program of experimental and analytical research that will change the understanding of the way seismic forces act on retaining structures of various types and, hence, to produce a new design methodology that is based on this new knowledge.
