Stress-Strain Characteristics of Sand
During the past decade, increasing interest has been shown in the development of a satisfactory formulation of a stress-strain relationship for engineering soils that incorporates a concise...

Lateral Load-Deflection Prediction for Pile Groups
A simple method of predicting the load-deflection behavior of a laterally loaded pile group is developed by combining a non linear load-deflection analysis for a single pile with an elastic...

Stress-Path Dependent Deformation Moduli of Clay
In case of normally consolidated saturated clays the stress- strain behavior during drained shear is shown to depend considerably on stress-path. The effect of stress-path on variation...

The stress-strain matrix used in finite element analyses has been reformulated in terms of constrained and shear moduli. The new formulation partially uncouples shear and compression and...

Dynamic Triaxial and Simple Shear Behavior of Sand
The dynamic properties of dry sands from triaxial tests represented as values of modulus and damping were investigated and compared with simple shear test results for the same material...

Nonlinear Settlement Analysis by Finite Element
A nonlinear constitutive equation for soil is used in conjunction with the finite element method to compute the settlement of oil storage tanks supported on clay. The nonlinearity is achieved...

Torsional Response of Piles
An analysis is described for the determination of the response of a single cylindrical pile subjected to torsion. The accuracy of the analysis is checked against existing solutions and...

Testing Procedure Effects on Dynamic Soil Behavior
Cyclic triaxial tests were performed on dry and saturated undrained sands using stage testing methods to investigate the influence of repeated cyclic straining and specimen reconsolidation...

Anisotropy in Heavily Overconsolidated Kaolin
Triaxial tests have been carried out on laboratory prepared Kaolin specimens at overconsolidation ratios from about l0 to 200 and at low stress level. Both isotropically and anisotropically...

Stress Analysis of Hollow Cylindrical Inclusions
Stresses and deformations in both a hollow cylindrical inclusion and the surrounding semi-infinite medium are studied using equations derived from the theory of elasticity. It is assumed...

Soil Parameters for Design of Mt. Baker Ridge Tunnel in Seattle
Experiments were conducted in the field and in the laboratory on subsurface soils encountered along the proposed Mt. Baker Tunnel in Seattle, Wash., to determine the modulus of horizontal...

Vibratory In Situ and Laboratory Soil Moduli Compared
A comparison of in situ determined and laboratory determined vibratory, shear, and compression moduli for 13 sites within the United States and one site in the Marshall Islands indicates...

Torsion of Nonhomogeneous Solid
A solution is given for the Reissner-Sagoci problem for a nonhomogeneous half-space and semi-infinite cylinder in each of which the shear modulus is assumed to vary with the depth. The...

Expansion of Cavities in Infinite Soil Mass
A general solution is presented of the problem of expansion of spherical and cylindrical cavities in an infinite soil mass. The soil is assumed to behave as an ideal elastic-plastic solid,...

Behavior of Laterally Loaded Piles: III—Socketed Piles
An analysis is made of the working-load behavior of a single laterally loaded pile, the tip of which is socketed into rock underlying the soil layer, for various combinations of boundary...

In Situ Shear Wave Velocity by Cross-Hole Method
The cross-hole seismic survey technique is presented as a means of determining in situ shear wave velocity. By this method the travel time for body waves to travel between two points in...

Shear Modulus and Damping in Soils: Measurement and Parameter Effects (Terzaghi Leture)
Based on numerous tests on a spectrum of disturbed and undisturbed soils, the shear modulus decreases and the damping ratio increases very rapidly with increasing strain amplitude. The...
