<p>During severe earthquake shaking, soil liquefaction is a major concern for structures constructed on saturated loose sandy soils. A large number of civil engineering structures were damaged due to liquefaction during huge recent earthquakes in Christchurch. ...

<p>Pile foundations now make up a greater percentage of foundations for new construction. That is why, an accurate calculation of pile resistance and the knowledge of its reliability has a great economic importance. A more rigorous approach has become necessary ...

<p>A site in Ch&acirc;teauguay, south of Montr&eacute;al, Qu&eacute;bec, Canada, was investigated as part of the design of a significant infrastructure project. A loose marine silt layer present at the site was found to be susceptible to liquefaction using ...

<p>This paper shows the determination of undrained shear strength based on cone<br />resistance from cone penetration test for clayey soil. The test was carried out on ten different suspected clayey soil sites at Ebonyi State College of Education, Ikwo. The ...

The paper reports the measurements and analyses and indicates the method for determining the residual load, the strain - dependent modulus of the test piles and the actual load distribution in the test piles.

<p>A new method of cable installation using a heavy-duty Cone Penetration Test (CPT) truck was developed and practiced successfully in this study. The coaxial and fiber optic cables were pushed along with the cone rods by the hydraulic system integrated with ...

A field investigation was performed to retest liquefaction and nonliquefaction sitesfrom the 1976 Tangshan earthquake in China.These sites were carefully investigated in 1978 and 1979 by using standard penetration test (SPT) and cone penetration test (CPT) ...

<p>Soil liquefaction is conventionally evaluated through an empirical framework based on accumulated experience from case histories - the "NCEER Method". However, the empirical framework contains inconsistent physics and characterizations that are unrelated ...

<p>In many ground improvement projects the preliminary field testing method is different from the tests that are carried out later. Hence, it may be necessary to correlate the two tests for comparative purposes. Dynamic Compaction, using pounders weighing ...
