Passive Pressure Coefficients by Method of Slices
Coefficients of passive earth pressure have been compared using the method of slices employed in slope stability work. The common problem of a vertical wall pushing into sand with a horizontal...

Support Potential of Hydraulic Backfill

Concrete Arch Culvert Behavior-Phase 2
An arch culvert, under a 240-ft. (73-m) embankment, was tested to assess influence on structural behavior of four methods of backfilling, including Method A, employing well-compacted structure...

Prefabricated Filter-Fin for Subsurface Drains
The design and methods of installation of a prefabricated filter media for use with subsurface drains is presented. The filter media is fabricated from synthetic materials and can be used...

Finite Element Analyses of Port Allen Lock
The interaction between a U-frame or drydock lock and the surrounding backfill and foundation soils is complex. This interaction was studied for a particular U-frame lock, Port Allen Lock,...

Finite Element Analyses of Retaining Wall Behavior
A means is developed for simulation of realistic behavior of the interface between a backfill soil and a retaining wall in finite element analyses. The interface behavior is shown from...

Density Studies of Cohesive Trench Backfills
This note presents the results of a nation-wide survey regarding backfilling practices, a discussion of different design and construction philosophies, a study of existing ordinances and...

Cross-Country Pipeline Construction
The construction of large diameter cross-country pipelines involves a repetitive sequence of operations, each of which must be carefully planned and scheduled to attain a high rate of...

Building Damage from Expansive Steel Slag Backfill
Expanding steel slage backfill was unexpectedly found to be the cause of vertical movements of the floor of a basementless building that resulted in significant damage to window and door...

Building Damage From Expansive Steel Slag Backfill

Committee on Backfilling in Public Rights-of-Way Final Report
The report is concerned primarily with evaluating types and properties of soils in the West and North sections of the city and county of St. Louis, field testing and evaluation of the...

Pipeline Economy Through Design of Backfill
Some methods for the structural design of soil-pipe interaction systems are reviewed and correlated. These methods include wall crippling for which ring compression is an adequate means...

ASCE Preliminary Research On Pipeline Flotation: Report of the Pipeline Flotation Research Council
Pipeline flotation is undesired rising or sinking of a pipeline during or after installation. It is usually caused by agitation of pipes of bulk specific gravity much different than that...

Earth Pressures for Bilinear Backfill Surface
An analytical investigation in the evaluation of earth pressures on a retaining wall with a straight back and with a bilinear surface for the backfill is presented. The solution is based...

Ventilated Building Foundations in Greenland
In permafrost areas soil supports foundations of structures only if permafrost can be prevented from thawing; use of air vents in foundation slab connected with ventilating stacks to secure...

Ventilated Building Foundations in Greenland
In permafrost areas soil supports foundations of structures only if permafrost can be prevented from thawing; use of air vents in foundation slab connected with ventilating stacks to secure...

Backfill Guide
Field investigations have shown that improperly placed and compacted backfill is associated with pavement settlement and movement of retaining structures; Backfill Guide demonstrates importance...
