<p>In the following sections, we will first discuss basic considerations necessary for<br />calculating lateral earth pressure and then how to apply these pressures in developing the force. We will illustrate how the lateral forces are combined with vertical ...

<p>Predicting bearing capacity of shallow foundations is a common practice in geotechnical engineering and an accurate estimation of its value is essential for a safe and reliable design. Traditional deterministic methods of estimating bearing capacity of ...

The Random Finite Element Method has been employed for calculating the random characteristics of bearing capacity of a strip foundation. The study has been carried out for two different soils; a greyblue clay from Taranto in Italy, which is well defined from ...

<p>Although manual cone penetration testing in snow has been practised since the 1930&rsquo;s, modern hydraulically-driven CPT equipment has not been used. Collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey will allow the first use of commercial CPT equipment ...

<p>It has been known that soil shear strength parameters are stress level dependent. On the other hand, foundation size has a significant effect on the level of imposed stress on subsoil elements. In this study, the Zero Extension Lines (ZEL) method, which ...

In shallow foundations, the third bearing capacity factor, Nγ, has been found to show a decreasing tendency with increasing the foundation size. It is supported by experimental observations and related mainly to stress level dependent nature of the soil. On ...

<p>Due to the globalization of the world economy and the global increase of trade, there is an increasing shipment of goods, which creates high demands on the maintenance and development of an efficient infrastructure (roads, railways and waterways). The development ...

Worldwide, there is growing interest in the development of a rational reliability-based geotechnical design code. The reasons for this interest are at least two-fold; first, geotechnical engineers face significantly more uncertainties than those faced in other ...
