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...

Critical State Soil Mechanics Model of Soil Consolidation Stresses around a Driven Pile

Size and Scale Effects on the Shear Strength of Concrete Beams
This paper identifies and discusses the role of proper geometric scale of relevant parameters in the size effect in shear, particularly in terms of practical beam design. In the overall...

Structurally Enhanced Foundations: A Functional Solution to Thaw Strain in Frozen Sand and Gravel
Some building sites with perennially frozen soil profiles are developed using nonelevated, conventional-appearing foundation systems. These sites consist of frozen sands and gravels and...

Advances in Analytical Modeling of Torsional Members
The basic formula for calculating the torsional strength of reinforced concrete members was developed by Rausch (1929) using the space truss concept. Unfortunately, Rausch's equation may...

Size Effect on Stress-Strain Curves of Concrete

Reducing Settlement Risks in Residual Piedmont Soils Using Rammed Aggregate Pier Elements

Evolution of Composite Floor Systems in the United States
Composite floor systems, which combine structural steel beams with a cast-in-place concrete slab, have grown in popularity in the U.S. during the past 40 years. In most early applications,...
