Static Cone to Compute Static Settlement over Sand
(Originally published in J. Soil Mechanics and Foundations Div, 1970,. 96(3), 1011-1043.)...

A Cone With a View: The VisCPT

A Glass Act
The Museum of Glass under construction in Tacoma, Washington, is the centerpiece of a plan to develop brownfield sites on the Thea Foss Waterway. The $57.3-million museum project includes...

Evaluating Axial Drilled Shaft Response by Seismic Cone

Analysis of Ice Forces on Small Conical Structures

Crowning Achievement
The $800 million Sony Center built in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin is divided into seven structures which are all literally brought together under one roof. The fabric and glass roof, which...

Dynamic Visualization in the Classroom Using Computer Simulation

Grouting Pains (Available in Geoenvironmental Engineering Special Issue)
The article focuses on a new grouting technique for filling holes drilled during site investigation. The holes are grouted as the drill is withdrawn from the hole, instead of filled later....

The Aerodynamic Properties of a Roughened Cone

Energy Dissipation in Rigid-Block Structures Under Dynamic Excitation

Mechanical Modelling of Large Block Structures: A Geometric Formulation for the Dynamics

A Dynamic Analysis of Joined Stacked Blocks

Artificial Ground-Water Recharge In Las Vegas Valley, Clark County, Nevada: Model Prediction - No Cone of Depression Here!

Evaluation of Cone Penetrometer Grout Backfilling

Direct and Modal Analyses for Shape-Finding of Unstable Structures
Shape-finding analysis of unstable structures has been presented by using generalized inverse (Tanaka and Hangai, 1986). The 'Modal Analysis' using rigid body modes is elegant, but the...

Core and Reaming Bit Studies in Yucca Mountain Tuffs
The Site Characterization Project is a major part of the work in determining the suitability of Yucca Mountain as a potential high level waste repository. Over 100 exploratory drill holes...

A Simulation of the Quake-response on the Frame with Large Basement-box under the Earthquake from Deep Soil Layer
This paper treats a study of computing vibratory analysis and its comparison with measurements for the earthquake-responses on an actual 19 storied pure frame-structure with its height...

Airfield Pavement Structural Evaluations, Current Practice and Future Needs
The United States Air Force's pavement evaluation teams have to be able to go quickly anywhere in the world to evaluate an airfield pavement's structural capability. A combination of non-destructive...

Driven Then Pushed Minicone Tests in a Sand Chamber
For a general knowledge on the Standard Cone Penetrometer test and its uses the reader is referred to the work of Briaud and Miran (1991). For this study (Khalaf and Briaud, 1992) a smaller...
