Computer Methods for Settlement Analyses of Piles

Curvatures of Piles Subject to Earthquakes

Static and Dynamic Properties of Gravelly Soils
The behavior of gravelly soils has been the focus of much research in recent years. Large-scale penetration and triaxial tests, shear-wave velocity measurements, insitu freezing and sampling,...

Design of Mat Foundation for Egg Shape Digesters
Two levels of ground motion, the Maximum Probable Earthquake and the Maximum Credible Earthquake, were considered in designing the 2.5 million gallon egg shape digesters and their combined...

Testing of Hollow Clay Tile Masonry Prisms
This paper presents test results of 610-mm wide (24-in.) by 1219-mm high (48-in) by 203- or 330-mm (8- or 13-in.) thick prisms constructed of hollow clay tiles. Three prisms were extracted...

Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility Project Status

Preliminary Assessment of Potential Sites for a Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility

New Modulus of Soil Reaction - E' Values for Buried Thermoplastic Pipe Design

Prediction of Settlement of Spread Footings

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...

Vertical Displacement Induced in Soil by Conical Shell Foundations
Shells can hold prospect for adoption in foundation engineering only if they can be projected as economical alternatives to conventional flat foundations. Therefore, the initial enthusiasm...

Footing Modulus Near Slopes
A method is described for estimating the footing modulus of shallow spread foundations located near slopes of cohesionless material. The ratio of footing modulus for a shallow foundation...

Settlement Analysis for 450 Meter Tall KLCC Towers
The site evaluation and settlement analysis performed for the two tallest buildings in the world currently under construction, are described. The site evaluation resulted in shifting building...

Resilient Modulus Test Protocol for Cement Stabilized Phosphogypsum

Determining Bituminous Pavement Shear Modulus

Factors Controlling Strong Ground Motion and Their Associated Uncertainties
Of special interest in strong ground motion modeling is a quantification of the degree of influence specific physical parameters have on the computed motions. Associated with the model...

Status and Progress Monitored Retrievable Storage Project
The past year has been substantive changes within the Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Project. This paper will present the status of the Project, review the progress made over the...

Incorporating Public Outreach in the MRS Design
As the design of the proposed DOE-OCRWM MRS facility progresses, facility layouts that allow for frequent and unhindered viewing of the MRS processes by the public should be developed....

Limited Work Authorization for a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility
The issuance of an limited work authorization (LWA) by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC/Commission) allows a potential licensee permission to undertake preliminary site construction,...

Application of Discrete Event Simulation to MRS Design
The application of discrete event simulation to the Monitored, Retrievable Storage (MRS) material handling operations supported the MRS conceptual design effort and established a set of...
