This paper presents the history of the performance of the anchor plates in the sand in many experimental works. It is based on different previous researches, from the earliest till the most recent ones. The main role of this last experimental research presented below, is focused on the prediction of the anchor’s behavior and the force in the sand. Although there are not entirely sufficient substitutes for a full-scale field testing, tests performed in laboratories have the advantage of allowing a close control of at least some of the parameters encountered in the research. This paper discusses on the field studies regarding the horizontal anchor plates, reported by Balla(1961), Hanna & Carr(1971) ,Hanna(1971),Das & Seeley(1975),Andreadis et al.(1981),Ovsen(1981),Murray & Geddes(1987),Fryman & Shamam(1989),Dickin(1988),Tagaya et al. (1988),Murray & Geddes (1989),Sarac(1989),Bouazza & Finlay(1990),Dickin(1994),Sakai & Tanaka(1998),Pearce(2000), Fargic and Marovic (2003), Dickin & Lama(2007), Kumar and Bhoi (2008) The results derived from the tests that are performed at the laboratory are typically a specific problem and they are difficult to extend, and to develop to field problems due to the different material or the geometric parameters used in the field scale.
