Multi-story RFERS subject to temperature variation

Walid Aboumoussa, Magued Iskander

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter presents the results of numerical parametric analysis of multi-story structures with varying geometries and properties. The primary purpose of this analysis is to investigate the effects of thermal movements of Rigidly Framed Earth Retaining Structures (RFERS) on (1) the displacement of the rigid frames, (2) the stresses developed in the structural elements, and (3) the lateral earth pressure developed in the soil mass. The results are reported for three and five story structures in this Chapter and for two and four story structures in Appendix B.
