Two instrumented full scale tieback walls in sand were constructed at to Geotechnical Experimentation Site located on the Texas A 51M University Riversic Measurements were obtained from the one row anchor wall and from the two row at different times during construction. The measured performance of the tieback walls is presented and investigated. The these walls at different construction stage is evaluated with respect to lateral wall. settlement of the ground, bending moment of the wall. axial load distribution and anchor load variation. The fundamental mechanism of a tieback wall in sand is and explained with the measurements.
