The concept of the equivalent free surface has been extended to determine the seismic horizontal pullout capacity of shallow vertical strip plate anchors buried in sand.The analysis has been done rigorously by using the method of stress characteristics.The results have been expressed in the form of non-dimensional charts.The pullout resistance has been found to reduce quite extensively with increase in the magnitude of horizontal earthquake acceleration.The results were compared with the previously published data, and it was seen that the computed pullout resistance with the proposed method was found to be lowest.
