Duplication of Dilatancy in Analysis of Jointed Rocks
The examples in this paper demonstrate that dilatancy parameters affect the results of stress and limit equilibrium analyses of jointed rock masses. A sophisticated analogue intended for...

Stress Analysis of Contractive or Dilative Soil
Nonlinear plastic stress-strain characteristics of drained soil, as described by Rowe's stress-dilatancy and by the Cambridge soil models, have been utilized in the solution...

Relaxation of Piles in Sand and Inorganic Silt
Many attempts have been made to modify the pile driving formulas to make them realistic in terms of modern driving practices and equipment. None seems to have had a long-lasting impact...

Effect of Particle Characteristic on Soil Strength
The effects of varying particle characteristics on the strength behavior of cohesionless soils are experimentally evaluated. Soil strength is measured on the basis of the angle of shearing...

Comparison of Stress-Dilatancy Theories
The stress-dilatancy theories of Rowe (1962) and of Newland and Allely (1957) are considered. A more precise derivation of Newland and Allely's volume change equation is given...

Mechanical Properties of a Sand-Ice System
The mechanical properties of a saturated frozen sand were studied using constant axial stress creep tests and constant axial strain-rate tests. Observation of the effects on deformational...

Transient Response of Cylinders to Shear Waves
The response of a hollow cylinder of arbitrary thickness, embedded in an elastic medium, to a transient plane shear wave is presented. The solution is valid within the scope of the linear...

Turbulent Non-Newtonian Velocity Profiles in Pipes
A semi-empirical method is described that permits the prediction of velocity profiles of turbulent flow of purely viscous, Newtonian, pseudoplastic, or dilatant fluids and suspensions...

Response of Elastic Cylinders to Plane Shear Waves
The dynamic response of a thick-walled cylinder embedded in an infinite elastic medium is determined due to the passage of plane harmonic shear waves. The basic parameters involved in...

Moving Step-Load on Half-Space External Pressure
The plane strain problem of a step load, p, moving on the surface of a half-space of granular material that is governed by internal friction of the Coulomb type, is studied. The material...

Vibrations and Stability of Plates under Initial Stress
Equilibrium of plates, under initial stresses uniformly distributed across plate thickness; equations derived by B.de SAINT-VENANT by considering isolated plate element; paper presents...

Stability Considerations in the Design of Steel Plate Girders
Results of tests conducted on large steel plate girders; stability requirements of webs and stiffeners of large-scale steel girders; different combinations of bending and shear are considered;...
