<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 ...

<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. ...

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 ...

<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 ...

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 ...

The site of a warehouse expansion in Tampa, Florida was underlain by sand overlying limestone. The performance criteria required ground improvement to densify the upper sand in order to maintain a maximum total settlement of 25 mm (1 inch) for an applied subgrade ...
