<p>Ever increasing population of large cities, density of transportation, and need for storage capacity have led, inevitably, to an increased use of underground facilities. Tunnels in urban environment are often located at small depths underneath densely populated ...
LS-SVM AND MONTE CARLO METHODS BASED RELIABILITY ANALYSIS FOR SETTLEMENT OF SOFT CLAYEY FOUNDATION (2013)
<p>A method which adopts the combination of least squares support vector machine (LS-SVM) and Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is used to calculate the foundation settlement reliability. When using LS-SVM, choosing the training dataset and the values for LS-SVM ...
Filed under: Soil Mechanics - Numerical MethodsReference: Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering 5 (2013) 312–317
Divall S. , Goodey R. J. et al.
<p>The expansion of urban populations comes with an associated demand for increased public transport. An often utilised solution is to construct a rapid transit system within tunnels. Generally, a pair of tunnels are constructed within relative close proximity. ...
INVESTIGATION AND MITIGATION OF DIFFERENTIAL MOVEMENT AT RAILWAY TRANSITIONS FOR US HIGH SPEED PASSENGER RAIL AND JOINT PASSENGER/FREIGHT CORRIDORS (2012)
Tutumluer E. , Stark T. D. et al.
As with most highway bridges, railway transitions experience differential movements due to differences in track system stiffness, track damping characteristics, foundation type, ballast settlement from fouling and/or degradation, as well as ﬁll and subgrade ...

INVESTIGATION OF DIFFERENTIAL MOVEMENT AT RAILROAD BRIDGE APPROACHES THROUGH GEOTECHNICAL INSTRUMENTATION (2012)
Mishra D. , Tutumluer E. et al.
Railway transitions experience differential movements due to differences in track system stiffness, track damping characteristics, foundation type, ballast settlement from fouling and/or degradation, as well as fill and subgrade settlement. This differential ...

A STUDY ON THE BEHAVIOR OF A GEOSYNTHETIC ENCASED STONE COLUMN GROUP USING 3D NUMERICAL ANALYSES (2011)
Keykhosropur L. , Soroush A. et al.
This paper introduces the assumptions, procedure and results of a number of three dimensional numerical analyses for simulating the behavior of an encased, versus unencased, stone column group installed in a very soft soil layer; the finite element technique ...
Filed under: Soil Mechanics - Soil ImprovementReference: 2011 Pan-Am CGS Geotechnical Conference, October 2011, Toronto, Canada
The paper presents the findings to reaffirm the principle that design of a piled foundation requires the analysis of the interaction between load transfer, soil settlement and pile toe load movement response.

ANALYSIS OF AN UNDERGROUND STRUCTURE SETTLEMENT RISK DUE TO TUNNELINGA CASE STUDY FROM TABRIZ, IRAN (2010)
Vahdatirad M. J. , Ghodrat H. et al.
The tunnel of the Tabriz urban railway line 2 (TURL2), Iran, will pass through an underground commercial center on its way. Too little distance between the tunnel crown and the underground structure foundation will probably cause collapse or excessive settlement ...
ANALYSIS OF SETTLEMENTS OF TEST EMBANKMENTS DURING 50 YEARS - A COMPARISON BETWEEN FIELD MEASUREMENTS AND NUMERICAL ANALYSIS (2010)
<p>This report is dealing with time dependent settlements calculated with numerical methods and subsequent comparisons with field measurements. The numerical computations in this report have been performed using Plaxis, a two-dimensional numerical program ...
Filed under: Soil Mechanics - Numerical MethodsReference: Division of Structural Mechanics, LTH, Lund University, Box 118, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden
Stark T. D. , Newman E. J. et al.
Many states allow construction of landfills over previously mined areas. However, mitigation of the underground mines by filling or removal is often required prior to landfill construction. A settlement analysis for the proposed vertical expansion of a residual ...
