Settlement Analysis of Landfill Liners over Deep Mined Areas
Tensile strains due to differential settlement from past mining activities were evaluated for a landfill liner. The landfill cell encompasses 20 acres and is located on a subsurface profile...

Towards a Rational Method of Predicting Settlements of Spread Footings on Sand
Prediction of settlements of both large and small spread footings on sand has traditionally been carried out using methods which are largely empirical. In recent years, advances have been...

Finite Strain Consolidation for Vertical Drains
Consolidation equations for vertical prefabricated drains which consider finite vertical strain of the soil are derived. Estimated consolidation times are shorter when finite soil strain...

Post-Cyclic Consolidation Behavior of Loose Sands
By performing Ko consolidation on samples accumulated various levels of strains and residual pore pressures due to cyclic loading, the post-earthquake settlement characteristics of two...

Settlement of Footings on Granular Materials: Low and Large Strain Parameters
Many methods have been proposed to predict the settlement of shallow foundations on granular soils. The analysis of more than 200 case histories shows that there is no correlation between...

Management of Dredged Material Placement Operations
Non-linear finite strain consolidation theory is used to predict the settlement of fine-grained dredged material due to self-weight and surcharge-induced consolidation. Finite strain consolidation...

Advances in Strain-Hardening Cement Based Composites

Load-Deformation Curves of Normal and High Strength Concrete for a Range of Height to Diameter Ratios

Elasto - Plastic Analysis of Cable Net Structures
This paper presents a Newton-Raphson interaction technique which takes account of plastic cable strains while iterating on the nodal equilibrium equations of cable net structures. The...

Low Strain Dynamic Testing of Wood Piles Supporting an Existing Pier
This paper presents a case history where low strain dynamic testing was performed to test wood piles supporting an existing structure. Under consideration is a 183 m long wooden pier constructed...

Steady-State Analysis of Buckle Propagation
A novel finite element technique for the analysis of buckle propagation in pipelines is presented. The propagation pressure, propagation profile, the state of stress, and deformation during...
