Long-Term Performance Monitoring of a Hillside Retaining Wall
To accommodate expansion of the West Point Treatment Plant in Seattle, WA, a 3,000-ft-long soldier pile, tieback-anchored retaining wall was constructed from May 1991 to May 1992. An oblique...

Design Considerations Common To All Permeable Pavements
Impervious cover in watersheds without controls result in increased stormwater runoff and decreased groundwater recharge in response to rainfall events. This increased runoff can be the...

Dynamic Shearing Properties Of Compacted Clay
A series of 116 Q-type triaxial compression tests was performed using specimens of Goose Lake clay compacted at water contents ranging from 9 percent dry of optimum to 3 percent on the...

Mechanisms Controlling the Permeability of Clays
Coefficients of permeability, calculated using Terzaghi's theory of one-dimensional consolidation, are reported for smectite, illite, and kaolinite, in water, methyl and ethyl...

Estimation of Consolidation Properties of Clay from Field Observations
Analyses to obtain theoretical time-settlement curves for embankments typically make use of soil properties measured in the laboratory on small disturbed samples subject to strain rates...

Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity of Partially Saturated Soils
Increased interest in protection of the environment has led to a need to be able to predict long-term movement of moisture, and contaminants, in the vicinity of shallow land disposal sites...

Behaviour of Open-Ended Pipe Piles in Sand During Installation and Loading
An experimental study was performed to investigate the physical processes which influence the axial load capacities of open-ended steel pipe piles in sand. A double-walled pipe pile was...

Effective Stress Theory of Soil Compaction
The shape of the moisture-density curve obtained from compaction tests has been explained in terms of capillarity and lubrication, viscous water, and physico-chemical interactions. None...

Pore Water Pressures in Unsaturated Soils
Unsaturated soils are three-phase systems composed of solid mineral matter, water, and air. Such soils may be formed by either natural or artificial means. Except in moist environments,...

Geotechnical Design Over Karst. It's All About the Water
Karst is a type of topography which is formed over soluble rocks, such as limestone, dolomite, or gypsum. An irregular bedrock surface is typical of most karst areas, along with sinkholes,...
