<p>The shear strength of heavily overconsolidated, stiff-to-hard plastic clays is crucial to their stability and also influential on the ground movements they develop in many geotechnical engineering applications. This paper considers the shear strength anisotropy ...
Filed under: Soil Mechanics - Soil InvestigationReference: Brosse, A. M. et al. Géotechnique [http://dx.doi.org/10.1680/jgeot.15.P.227]
<p>This paper presents the shear strength study of a saturated and unsaturated lateritic tropical soil, via triaxial compression tests on undisturbed (loose) and compacted soil samples. The shear strength of the soil increases hyperbolically with increasing ...

SHEAR STRENGTH CRITERIA FOR ROCK, ROCK JOINTS, ROCKFILL AND ROCK MASSES: PROBLEMS AND SOME SOLUTIONS (2013)
<p>Although many intact rock types can be very strong, a critical confining pressure can eventually be reached in triaxial testing, such that the Mohr shear strength envelope becomes horizontal. This critical state has recently been better defined, and correct ...
Filed under: Rock Mechanics - Rock StrengthReference: ournal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Volume 5, Issue 4, Pages 249-334 (August 2013)
<p>Geotechnical performance of a structure is generally governed by spatial average soil properties, such as the average shear strength along a potential slip surface in a slope. In Eurocode the characteristic soil value is defined as “a cautious estimate ...

Hyatt J . , Borinara P. et al.
In this study, a geotechnical testing program was conducted to evaluate the engineering properties of old municipal solid waste sampled in Whamyung MSW landfill site, Busan, Korea.

NONLINEAR SITE RESPONSE AND SEISMIC COMPRESSION AT VERTICAL ARRAY STRONGLY SHAKEN BY 2007 NIIGATA-KEN CHUETSU-OKI EARTHQUAKE (2011)
Yee E. , Stewart J. P. et al.
<p>Strong ground motions from the Mw 6.6 2007 Niigata-ken Chuetsu-oki earthquake were recorded by a free-field downhole array installed near the Service Hall at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant. Site conditions at the array consist of about 70m of ...
Filed under: Earthquake Engineering - Ground Response AnalysisReference: PEER Report 2011 /xx Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center College of Engineering University of California, Berkeley
<p>The construction of cuts, embankments and dam in and on different ground require the analyses of slope stability, deformations and often the use of the observational method. New codes, such as Eurocode 7 or its sister code in Switzerland SIA 267, prescribe ...

Hussain M. , Stark T. D. et al.
Back-analysis of a landslide is performed to estimate the mobilized shear strength of the problematic layer. Back-analysis can be an effective procedure for estimating the mobilized shear strength because it avoids the problems associated with laboratory and ...

EARTHQUAKE INDUCED EXCESS PORE WATER PRESSURES IN THE UPPER SAN FERNANDO DAM DURING THE 1971 SAN FERNANDO EARTHQUAKE (2010)
The excess pore water pressure developed in the Upper San Fernando Dam during the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake has been evaluated in several studies. Almost all of these studies indicate large excess pore pressure ratios developed only in the upstream and ...

Been K. , Quiñonez A. et al.
<p>Many empirical and theoretical CPT interpretation methods are broadly accepted and used in practice. These approaches tend to consider whether the cone penetration is drained or undrained, and then will consider the soil as either “sand” or ...
