In this paper are presented centrifuge tests simulating the installation of jacked piles that were conducted in dense uniform fine silica sand.
Reference: Physical Modelling in Geotechnics-6th ICPMG '06 - Ng, Zhang & Wang (eds) 2006
The behavior of soil retaining structures during earthquakes is investigated. Seismic excitation imparts inertial forces to the soil retaining system, and, once the seismic acceleration reaches the yield level, the structure exhibits permanent displacements. ...

This paper presents results of numerical analyses for the seismic response of step-like ground slopes in uniform visco-elastic soil, under vertically propagating SV seismic waves.

<p>In this paper a multi-surface plasticity model for cohesionless granular materials is developed, in which theLade-Duncan failure criterion is employed as the yield function.</p>

<p>This paper presents the application of the PEER (Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research) PBEE (Performance-based earthquake engineering) methodology to one of the six PEER testbeds, namely the Humboldt Bay Middle Channel (HBMC) Bridge, one of three bridges ...

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 ...

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
<p>Incremental Dynamic Analysis (IDA) is an emerging analysis method that offers thorough seismic demand and capacity prediction capability by using a series of nonlinear dynamic analyses under a multiply scaled suite of ground motion records.<br />A complete ...

The analysis in this paper concludes that permanent displacements of the ground andof structures in the near-field can be calculated provided all six components of strong motion(three translations and three rotations) have been recorded, and the records are ...
