Bending Analysis of Anisotropic Plates
The bending analysis of anisotropic plates is considered by the application of the method of lines. In this analysis the governing partial differential equations are replaced by a system...

Coefficients of Deformation of an Anisotropic Body
The five characteristic elastic constants of an axisymmetric anisotropic solid with a plane of isotropy can usually not all be established by laboratory methods. It is shown by a transformation...

Shallow Ditch Safety in Anisotropic Clay
The potential collapse of temporary unsupported shallow vertical cuts in soil poses an extremely hazardous condition during the construction process. The conventional method of analyzing...

Seepage from Trapezoidal Canal in Anisotropic Soil
An analytical solution is found for the problem of seepage flow from an unlined trapezoidal canal, taking into account the general anisotropic behavior of the porous medium. Since a canal...

Elastoplastic Torsion of Anisotropic Bars
An elastoplastic analysis for the torsion of anisotropic bars has been presented on the basis of a hybrid model using the finite element method. The element formulation is based on modified...

Flow at Interface of Two Anisotropic Soil Zones
Flow-nets have proved extremely useful in solving problems of steady seepage. If the soil mass can be considered homogeneous and isotropic, it is found from Darcy.s Law and the criterion...

Directional Drying Rates for Anisotropic Clays
The engineering properties of clays are greatly affected by their structure, which is defined as the combination of fabric (geometrical aspects of particle arrangements) and the associated...

Transverse Bending of Laminated Anisotropic Plates
This technical note is motivated by an earlier paper on laminated anisotropic plates which are symmetric about their midplanes, as well as by a recent reconsideration of the effect of...

Stresses in Anisotropic Nonhomogeneous Sphere
The influence of modulus variations on propellant grain stress distribution deserves attention as the modulus variability generally leads to a significant structural improvement. Taking...

Micromechanics Model for Creep of Anisotropic Clay
Clays frequently possess a fabric with a preferred particle orientation and the creep properties of such clays are therefore anisotropic. A two-dimensional microstructural model to describe...

Rutting Failure in Full-Depth Asphalt Pavement
The paper deals with the rutting failure of a full-depth asphalt pavement, determined on the assumption that it is related to the bearing capacity mechanism, which in this case acts in...

Anisotropy in Heavily Overconsolidated Kaolin
Triaxial tests have been carried out on laboratory prepared Kaolin specimens at overconsolidation ratios from about l0 to 200 and at low stress level. Both isotropically and anisotropically...

Stress Measurements in Anisotropic Rock by Hydraulic Fracturing

Anisotropic Sand Transport in Tidal Inlets

Bearing Capacity of Anisotropic Clays
The Purpose of this paper is to present the variation of shear strength in soils with depth and direction, especially for cohesive soils....

In-Situ Determination of Anisotropy of a Soft Clay

Torsion of Nonhomogeneous Anisotropic Bars
This technical note presents the finite element solution for the St. Venant's torsion of nonhomogeneous and anisotropic sections. The mathematical formulation is based on...

Membrane Analogy for Anisotropic Cable Networks
A membrane analogy is given for free vibration analysis of rectangular orthogonal and nonorthogonal, isotropic/anisotropic networks using energy formulation. The analogy is applicable...

Plane Stress Reinforced Concrete Finite Elements
A rational approach to the modeling of reinforced concrete finite elements for plane stress applications is presented. Both the nonhomogeneity and anisotropy due to the reinforcement and...

Strain-Stress Relations and Failure of Anisotropic Clays
Different degrees of anisotropy were induced in two kaolinitic clays and one illitic clay by one-dimensional consolidation of thin hollow circular cylinders in a specially designed cell....
