Abstract

A series of model shaking table test was conducted on a gravity type caisson quay wall protected by a cushion made from recycled product. The response accelerations, the dynamic load acting on the quay wall, the permanent displacement experienced by it and the excess pore water pressure in various locations of the backfill were measured. The results show that the dynamic load against the caisson quay wall could be significantly reduced using the reinforcement technique. In addition, the dynamically induced permanent displacement of the caisson quay wall could be substantially reduced.
