Soil anchors are primarily designed and constructed to resist outwardly-directed loads imposed on the foundation of a structure. Focusing on their practical applications, this book describes and compares all of the major types of anchors used in construction, including direct embedment anchors, helical anchors, grouted anchors, anchor piles, drilled shafts, and soil hook systems. The text provides a useful guide for the construction and design of anchor plates in various projects as retaining walls, seawalls, and transmission towers. It discusses anchor performance in different types of soils and wind loads on cell/transmission towers, offering practical solutions that utilize soil anchors.
