Performance of Suction Caissons in Sand and Clay
The use of suction caissons (suction piles) in marine environments has been increasing in the last decade. A suction caisson is a steel pipe with an open bottom and a closed top that is...

Shear and Interface Strength of Clay at Very Low Effective Stress
Thin-specimen direct shear (TSDS) tests were conducted to measure the shearing strength of kaolinite, and interface strengths between kaolinite and acrylic plastic and anodized aluminum,...

Effective Stress Theory of Soil Compaction
The shape of the moisture-density curve obtained from compaction tests has been explained in terms of capillarity and lubrication, viscous water, and physico-chemical interactions. None...

Finite Difference Analyses for Sand Drain Problems
The geotechnical literature contains a number of papers in which sand drain installations are described and field performance is compared with theoretical predictions. Some of the field...

Pore Water Pressures in Unsaturated Soils
Unsaturated soils are three-phase systems composed of solid mineral matter, water, and air. Such soils may be formed by either natural or artificial means. Except in moist environments,...

Pile-Driving Formulas for Friction Piles in Sand
Dynamic pile-driving formulas are widely used in predicting the load-carrying capacity of friction piles and in writing pile-driving specifications. Further, when load tests are available,...

Axial Capacity of Steel Pipe Piles in Clay
Development of theories for the prediction of the axial compressive and tensile load capacities of driven piles is made difficult by a variety of factors, e.g., disturbance of the soil...

Application of Model Pile Tests to Axial Pile Design
Experiments conducted with instrumented model pile segment probes at Harvey and Empire, Louisiana are summarized and the observed behavior interpreted. Correlations are developed for the...

Geo-Shanghai 2014
Proceedings of the Geo-Shanghai 2014 International Conference, held in Shanghai, China, May 26-28, 2014. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. These...

Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures: Design through Design Life
Regarding new earth retaining structures (ERS) construction, the message is clear: plan for asset management. New construction is certainly not immune to performance issues, and the time...

Evaluation of Soil-Structure Interaction Methods

Ground Freezing in a Congested Urban Area
Artificial ground freezing is a method of providing temporary earth support and ground water control for deep excavations and tunnels. The technique has been used for over 100 years in...

Improving Construction Quality by Seeing What's Hidden Underground
One of the challenges of deep foundation projects is the inability to see what's being built at depth. Construction is hidden below ground, in soil or rock conditions that...
