<p>Many years ago it was suggested by Professor Robert E. Gibson to a group of colleagues to write a book on the theory of consolidation, as the theory of poroelasticity was then called, on the lines of the classical treatise by Carslaw and Jaeger on the Conduction ...

<p>At geotechnical sites, deformation measurements are routinely performed during the construction process. In this paper, it is shown how information from such measurements can be utilized to update the reliability estimate of the geotechnical site at future ...

<p>Cyclic1D is a nonlinear Finite Element program for one-dimensional (1D) lateral dynamic site-response simulations. The program operates in the time domain, allowing for linear (Hughes 1987) and nonlinear studies. Nonlinearity is simulated by incremental ...
This paper explores application of the Finite Element Method (FEM) and Shear Strength Reduction (SSR) analysis to compute probabilities of failure for slopes. It does so using two probabilistic approaches: the Point Estimate Method (PEM) and limited numbers ...

Land subsidence above depleted gas/oilfields can be addressed by the FE method using either thepore pressure gradient formulation or the total stress formulation. A modification to both formulations is suggested which allows to correctly solve the problem ...

Tunnel-induced settlements may be predicted empirically for greenfield sites, but surface structures modify these movements. Two-dimensional models, often used in practice, neglect the effect of transients as the tunnel is excavated, and do not allow realistic ...

This paper describes the finite element analysis and interpretation of a O-Cell static test in barrette founded on residual soil.

<p>An extensive programme of research has been carried out at Oxford University on finite element analysis of the interaction between masonry buildings and ground movements induced by tunnelling. The focus has been on the development of a predictive tool for ...
