This paper presents the development of new generalized correlationsfor Vs1-based evaluation of seismically-induced soil liquefaction. Probabilistic models for initiation of soil liquefaction are developedwithin a Bayesian model framework and structural reliability ...

<p>Design of slopes and analysis of existing slopes subjected to seismic shaking are carried out routinely using approximations of plane strain and substitution of a quasi-static load for the seismic excitation. A three-dimensional 3D analysis of slopes ...

The influence of pore-water pressure and the pool water pressure on stability of submerged slopes was investigated using the kinematic approach of limit analysis. For soils with some cohesive component of strength, the critical pool level is slightly below ...

The primary goal of this report was to develop Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methods for slopes and retaining structures. Even though there is past research on LRFD of shallow foundations and piles, there are very few publications available on LRFD ...

<p>Many soil stability problems in geotechnical engineering can be analyzed by means of the classical slip line method - a relatively rigorous (baseline) solution. A slip line solution satisfies the lower bound theorem in plasticity theory, ie it satisfies ...

A method is presented for calculations of irreversible displacements of multiblock structures subjected to seismic excitation. Use is made of the kinematic approach of limit analysis. To make the analysis tractable a hodograph representing distribution of ...

<p>This paper applies numerical limit analyses to evaluate the ultimate bearing capacity of a surface footing resting on a rock mass whose strength can be described by the generalised Hoek&ndash;Brown failure criterion [Hoek E, Carranza-Torres C, Corkum B. ...

<p>Load and resistance factor design (LRFD) is the standard structural design practice. In order for foundation design to be consistent with current structural design practice, the use of the same loads, load factors, and load combinations would be required. ...

A strict upper bound solution to limit loads on strip footings over two-layer clay foundation soil is presented. Two mechanisms of failure are considered: one with a continually deforming field, and a rigid-block mechanism. The multi-block mechanism was found ...
