Phenomenon of stress transformation from yielding part of Soil

Introduction Phenomenon of stress transformation from yielding part of soil onto adjacent rigid part is known to be arching action of soil which is encountered in both underground structures and natural terrains Retaining walls buried pipes culverts under embankments tunnels under loose soil under passes and buried conduits can be categorized as few underground structures affected by arching effect of soil Arching occurs when there is a difference of the stiffness between the installed structure and the surrounding soil If the structure is stiffer than the soil then loads arches onto the structure Otherwise if the structure is less stiff than the soil then loads arches away from the structure Depending on relative stiffness of surrounding soil mass arching phenomenon tends to have both positive and negative impacts on underground structures that s the arching action can be either active or passive Reduction of overall stress transformed on to structure from overlying soil is the foremost positive impact of arching effect
