Spread Footing Settlement Prediction

Spread Footing Settlement Prediction for ASCE Specialty Conference ?SETTLEMENT '94?

Use and Abuse of Settlement Analysis
Terzaghi's concept of settlement analysis included comparison of prediction with reality and investigation of the causes of the differences. Present usage is often limited to prediction....

Settlement of a 15-Meter Deep Fill Below a Building
The site for a building in western Pennsylvania was undermined, with the mine base about 15 m below planned final grade. Rock above the mine was highly fractured and of poor quality, indicating...

Compaction Grouting Stops Settlement of an Operating Water Treatment Plant
In early 1978, about a month into full-time operation, the new filter plant building for the water treatment plant for the City of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, experienced distress due...

Pipe Utility Evaluations With the Aid of GIS
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are starting to be used on a day to day basis to solve community problems and optimize the use of their valuable resources. One engineering application...

Taming the Urban Underground
When designing and installing excavation support systems at a city construction site, be prepared to deal with the urban jungle. Tunnels and utility cables and pipes clog the underground,...

Geophysical Methods for Fracture Characterization in and Around Potential Sites for Nuclear Waste Disposal
Historically, geophysical methods have been used extensively to successfully explore the subsurface for petroleum, gas, mineral, and geothermal resources. Their application, however, for...

Coolidge Dam Abutment Stability and Stabilization
This paper focuses on left abutment stability assessments and stabilization measures at Coolidge Dam, Arizona. Initial assessment of abutment stability was based on limited rock strength...

Liquefaction Potential Leads to Dam Reconstruction
Results of a visual inspection of the Dundee Dam conducted in 1982 revealed the presence of seepage on the downstream toe of the left embankment. Subsequent subsurface explorations and...
