<p>This paper presents a model to predict the ultimate pullout load (Pu) for a shallow single vertical plate anchor embedded in sand and fiber reinforced sand for depth (H)/diameter (D) ratios of 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0. The model was developed based on literature field test results and wide laboratory investigation. The numerical analysis was performed using the...
