Investigation of retaining wall installation and performance using centrifuge modelling techniques D. J. Richards, BEng, PhD, W. Powrie, MA, MSc, PhD, CEng, FICE and J. R. T. Page, BEng, PhD j This paper describes two series of geotechnical centrifuge model tests carried out to investigate aspects of the performance of embedded diaphragm retaining walls. In the rst series of tests, the inuence of groundwater levels, wall panel width and initial lateral earth pressure coefcient on the changes in lateral stress and ground settlements associated with diaphragm wall installation was examined...
