# 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;...*
