When Old Meets New: Railway Geotechnics and Remote Sensing
Railroad track, like any other built structure, relies on a foundation of geomaterials for support. In its most basal form, the railway track is quite simple: steel load-bearing members (rails) supported...

Refined Finite Element Analysis of Geomaterials

Stress Transfer Within Granular Geomaterials
Local stresses within granular materials are random variables whose variance depends on the size of the elementary surface considered. This paper shows that this 'mechanical scale effect'...

Analysis of Internal Discontinuities in Geo-Materials
A new approach for modeling localized deformations is proposed. This approach uses an interface element to model the shear band. A successful capture of the kinematics of a failure mechanism...

Mathematical Characterization of Fabric and Its Use in Mechanics of Geomaterials
Increased evidence of the influence of their discrete nature on the observed behavior of geomaterials has prompted a number of investigators to look at these materials at the microstructural...
