This paper presents the results of theoretical study of the behaviour of anchors in a homogeneous soil (pulverulent medium).The originality of the theoretical study is in the determination of model based on the kinematics approach of the theory of the limit analysis; in the case of the criteria of Mohr Coulomb. The type of failure of the ground around the anchor, obtained by this approach, is close to the reality
