The aim of this paper is to introduce a robust methodology for the analytical calculation of strains in flexible buried pipelines due to surface point-source blasts.
Reference: International Journal of Impact Engineering 34 (2007) 1683-1704
Existing analytical methods for the stress analysis of buried steel pipelines at crossings with active strike-slip faults depend on a number of simplifications, which limit their applicability and may even lead to non-conservative results. The analytical methodology ...

Contrary to many laboratory investigations, common empirical correlations from in situ tests consider that the increase in the percentage of fines leads to an increase of the cyclic liquefaction resistance of sands. This paper draws upon the integrated Critical ...
Reference: Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering 23 (2003) 115-125
A set of approximate, multivariable relations is established to evaluate soil effects on the peak horizontal acceleration, the peak horizontal velocity and the horizontal elastic response spectra (5% damping). The basic innovation of the approach is the use ...

This paper presents the multiaxial formulation of a plasticity model for sand under cyclic shearing.
Reference: Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering 22 (2002) 1941-204
the following important issues, concerning the Athens, Greece earthquake of 07/09/1999, are addressed in this article: (a) the principal direction of ground shaking, (b) the accuracy of pure seismological methods for site characterization, (c) the effect of ...
