The paper describes the results of some experimental activities performed at the Earthquake Engineering Research Center of Bristol University and related to the seismic response analysis of earth-retaining walls. The activities consist of several shaking table tests performed on a earth-retaining wall system involving a scaled concrete wall model and a Leighton Buzzard sand deposit. The obtained results are presented in terms of amplitude of acceleration and displacement of the wall and are discussed focusing the attention on some aspects of the response generally neglected in the traditional performance-based design approaches.
