A User Friendly Microcomputer Program for Liquefaction Potential Analysis
A user friendly microcomputer program is introduced to predict earthquake induced liquefaction and its associated settlement for level ground sites....

Macroelement Model for Shear Wall Analysis
An efficient modeling scheme for static and dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete shear walls in the inelastic range is presented. The macroelement model of the shear wall is composed...

Extensions of Finite Element Dental Stress Analysis
Some two dimensional models for stress analysis of dental crowns are examined and compared in relation to boundary conditions and some other issues in finite element analysis. The current...

Rotating Crack Model and Fracture in a R/C Medium
In this study the potential of the development of cracks in the members of a reinforced concrete large panel structure is considered. The analysis is carried out using finite element modeling...

Study of Stress Concentrations at the Intersection of Underground Chambers for the Superconducting Super Collider Project

Numerical Modeling of Initial Ground Movement in an Instrumented Superconducting Super Collider Shaft
A 5.5 m diameter shaft was sunk into a rock formation of Taylor Marl to a depth of 61 m at the Superconducting Super collider (SSC) site. Numerical modeling using finite difference analysis...

Load - Settlement Predictions for Spread Footing Event

Prediction of Settlement for Five Footings

Compressibility of Clays: Fundamental and Practical Aspects
The compressibility of natural clays is influenced by strain rate, temperature, sampling disturbance, stress path and some restructuration factors. The first part of the paper reviews...

Predicting Shallow Foundation Settlement in Sands from DMT
The dilatometer test is ideal for predicting the settlement of shallow foundations. It directly measures a modulus of the soil and has been correlated to predict stress history. Recently,...

53 WAK Tests on Spread Footings
Research on the prediction of soil stiffnesses of spread footing-soil systems using Wave Activated Stiffness (K) or WAK tests was conducted. As discrete lumped-parameter model with a mass,...

Vertical and Horizontal Deformations for Foundations on Sand: An Experimental Study
A natural scale model is used in order to investigate experimentally the sand soil deformation behavior which accepts loads by shallow foundations. The vertical and horizontal soil displacements...

Settlement of Shallow Foundations on Sand
A new method for estimating the settlement of shallow foundations on sand is presented. The method is based on elastic stress-strain theory and is designed for use with soil data from...

Horizontal and Vertical Movements of Bridge Piers Subjected to Ship Impact
Results of a detailed analysis to evaluate the potential horizontal and vertical movements of the piers of George P. Coleman Bridge, Virginia, in the event of ship impact are presented...

Performance of Nanhua Dam During Construction
The pore pressure response and settlement during the construction of Nanhua dam were studied by several methods, including Hilf's method, laboratory stress path simulation and numerical...

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...

An Alternative Formulation of Volume-change Behavior of Soils
The traditional approach based on the semi-logarithmic representation of volume change data is known to work relatively well for prediction of ground settlements. This approach has 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...

A Procedure for Predicting Seismic Deformation of Earth Structures
This paper presents an analysis procedure for predicting the earthquake induced displacements of earth structures. The procedure is an extension of the simple Newmark method from a single-degree-of-freedom...

Deformation of Sand Foundations Induced by Earthquakes
This paper discusses the deformation of sand foundations during earthquakes based on the experimental results of centrifuge tests. A group of tests was conducted on two types of buildings...
