<p>Many years ago it was suggested by Professor Robert E. Gibson to a group of colleagues to write a book on the theory of consolidation, as the theory of poroelasticity was then called, on the lines of the classical treatise by Carslaw and Jaeger on the Conduction ...

<p>Soil behavior is complex and thus requires quantification by a reasonably good number of different engineering parameters. Consequently, the seismic piezocone test (SCPTu) is particularly well-suited to being an efficient and economical tool for routine ...

To understand the strain-dependent shear modulus and damping ratio of reconstituted pumice sand samples, a series of dynamic deformation tests was performed using hollow cylindrical torsional shear test apparatus. The effects of confining pressure level and ...

<p>This book is the text for the introductory course of Soil Mechanics in the Department of Civil Engineering of the Delft University of Technology, as I have given from 1980 until my retirement in 2002. It contains an introduction into the major principles ...

<p>In this paper, cyclic triaxial loading tests were conducted on specimens of soft clay with varying cyclic stresses and frequencies to investigate the performance of soft soil subgrade subjected to cyclic loading. The laboratory results indicate that given ...

Permeability function of an unsaturated soil, k(\), where \ is suction, is a vital hydrogeological property that governs seepage in various geotechnical problems. Owing to considerably long test duration, direct measurement of k(\) is often avoided if at all ...

The application of suction on a saturated soil specimen consolidated in an oedometer may cause the lateral shrinkage. This study tries to simulate such situation using triaxial testing apparatus and to quantify the lateral deformation due to drying and shearing. ...

This paper provides the background to the 50th Rankine Lecture. It considers the growth in emphasis of the prediction of ground displacements during design in the past two decades of the 20th century, as a result of the lessons learnt from field observations. ...

<p>The shear modulus, known as Gmax , is a key parameter for predicting the static and dynamic behavior of soils. Its value decreases by increasing the shear strain. This is because of reducing the soil&rsquo;s stiffness as a result of increasing the shear ...

<p>It has been known that soil shear strength parameters are stress level dependent. On the other hand, foundation size has a significant effect on the level of imposed stress on subsoil elements. In this study, the Zero Extension Lines (ZEL) method, which ...
