Proceedings of sessions of the ASCE National Convention, held in Washington, D.C., November 10-14, 1996. Sponsored by the Soil Dynamics Committee of the Geotechnical Engineering Division of ASCE.

This Geotechnical Special Publication contains eight papers on retaining structures to withstand earthquakes. Topics include: dynamic earth pressures on fixed and movable rigid and flexible walls; displacements in translation and rotation of walls under earthquakes; behavior of fills and abutments during earthquakes; and centrifuge tests on walls.

Papers present both analytical and experimental data on possible behavior of retaining structures under seismic loading. Considerable effort is being devoted to determination of realistic dynamic pressures, displacement in translation and rotation of retaining structures, and behavior of fills for abutments. Although a synthesis of these efforts is not currently available, these papers highlight the need for more definite descriptions of unsolved problems.
