<p>Numerical methods combined with centrifuge tests are used to investigate the distribution and development of soil stresses and reinforcement tensile loads in geosynthetic reinforced soil (GRS) structures. In this study, system stability indicated by the ...

Progressive rock-fall failures in natural rock slopes are common in many environments, but often elude detailed quantitative documentation and analysis. Here we present high-resolution photography, video, and laser scanning data that document spatial and temporal ...

Knowledge on large earthquakes (M 7.0), geology and fault kinematics is used to analyse conditions that favour isolated seismicity, clustered earthquakes or propagating sequencesalong the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) and the Sea of Marmara pull-apart.

<p>In numerical analyses involving multiple geological materials, predicted stress distributions, deformation patterns, and failure mechanisms depend on the ratios of the Young's moduli for the different materials, a detailed often overlooked. Using two simple ...

A simple mechanical model and dimensional analysis are used to derive a scaling law for the partitioning between slip rate on a strike-slip fault and distributed deformation in the far-field.

<p>The results of studies of the initiation and propagation of fracture from a single Griffith crack in a biaxial compressive stress field are reported in this paper.</p>

<p>We explore the possible stress triggering relationship of the M &ge; 6.4 earthquakes that occurred in Kerman Province, southern Iran since 1981. We calculated stress changes due to both coseismic sudden movement in the upper crust and the time-dependent ...
