Long Term Performance of High Rise Mat Foundation
The vertical movement of the foundation soils for a multi-story high rise office tower was monitored during foundation excavation, tower construction and the 25-year in-service period...

Fact or Friction: A Review of Soil Response to a Laterally Moving Pile
A review of soil response around a laterally moving pile is presented and 'Winkler' spring soil modulus variations are discussed. Based on available theory, and...

Rectangular Footing on Nonhomogeneous Elastic Half Space
The problem of a rectangular footing or a strip footing on a nonhomogeneous elastic half space is studied in this paper. The medium is assumed to be isotropic with a variable shear modulus...

Bearing Capacity of Shallow Foundation on Granular Column in Weak Clay
Laboratory model tests results for the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow rectangular foundations supported by granular columns made in weak clay have been presented. In all cases, the...

Seismic Cone Penetration Test
A new test, called the seismic cone penetration test (SCPT) is described. A small rugged velocity seismometer has been incorporated into an electronic cone penetrometer. The combination...

Residual Soil Settlement From Pressuremeter Moduli
The Menard pressuremeter test is briefly described, and practical drilling techniques are summarized for Piedmont residual soils. Applications and limitations of the pressuremeter are...

In Situ Tests Aid Design of a Cylinder Pile Wall
In situ testing was used to verify geotechnical design parameters and modify construction for a 22 million dollar slope stabilization project near a major highway interchange. The project...

Correlation of Soil Parameters From In Situ and Laboratory Tests for Building 333
Pressuremeter, plate bearing and cone penetration tests were performed on the prepared foundation soil for Building 333 located in the Red River Army Depot near Texarkana, TX. The results...

Dilatometer Tests in Sand
The paper presents two applications of the dilatometer test in sands: control of compaction and determination of constrained modulus. Twelve dilatometer tests were carried out before and...

A Relationship Between Deformation Modulus and SPT N for Gravels
The results of over 200 horizontal plate load tests performed in situ in large diameter boreholes on gravels at various relative densities are used to develop a relationship between deformation...

In Situ Tests for Foundation Vibrations
There are several well established methods of determining shear modulus in situ and these are summarized in this paper. New techniques are being developed for in situ determination of...
