Two movements of particular interest are the creation of gaps above coal pillars and falling of standing support elements without apparent damage. A dynamic boundary element program was used to explore movements induced by slip on geologic features removed ...

<p>A part of Toulouse&rsquo;s underground line B has been excavated by a 7.8 meters diameter earth-pressure balance machine. A comprehensive monitoring section has been installed in the Compans garden at a point where the tunnel cover is 12.8-meter and is ...

The theory of Zero Extension Lines (ZEL), based on the solution of soil plasticity equations along ZEL directions, has wide applications in determination of the bearing capacity and load–displacement behavior of foundations and retaining walls. It is known ...
