Paper Title:
The Research of Seismic Active Earth Pressure with Mode of Translation by Horizontal Slices Analysis Method and Shaking Table Tests
  Abstract

In order to get the seismic active earth pressure with the mode of translation, adopting some related assumptions of the M-O theory, this paper establishes the first-order differential equation of the Seismic active earth pressure by horizontal slices analysis method and gets the solution of the seismic active earth pressure by boundary conditions. This formula can solve the distribution of the seismic active earth pressure is nonlinear along the wall, the point of application of the dynamic active thrust which is the advantage of this formula and announces the decreasing process of the filling’s rupture angle with the increase of the horizontal peak ground acceleration (PGA) , as well. The rationality and validity of the formula is confirmed by the comparison between the results of the shaking table tests and the formula, respectively. If the retaining wall takes place the mode of translation, the point of application of the seismic active thrust ranges between 0.4 and 0.5 times wall’s height at the horizontal seismic peak ground acceleration (PGA)<0.4g.At the same time, the computational accuracy of the dynamic active thrust, their points of application and the angle of rupture increases with the increase of the horizontal peak ground acceleration at the horizontal PGA<1.0g, as the astigmatic of the retaining wall in highly seismic intensity region supplying the valuable reference.
