<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 ...
Reference: Geosynthetics International, February, Vol. 19, No. 5, 2012
<p>A narrow mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall is defined as a MSE wall placed adjacent to an existing stable wall, with a width less than that established in current guidelines. Because of space constraints and interactions with the existing stable ...

Centrifuge tests have been carried out on kaolin clay slopes subject to variations in surface rainfall and humidity corresponding, at model scale, to successive wet and dry seasons in the field. An analysis of the phase ofepisodic regional softening is presented ...
Reference: Geotechnique 61, No. 9, 757–769
A new centrifuge permeameter was developed with the specific objective of expediting the measurement of the hydraulic characteristics of unsaturated soils. The development, theoretical basis, and typical results associated with using the centrifuge permeameter ...

<p>No earthquake has caused failure or severe damage to any rockfill dams with bodies of well-compacted rock materials. It is important to estimate the damage grade quantitatively in order to evaluate a seismic performance of a dam against a large earthquake. ...

<p>Traditional soil reinforcing techniques involve the use of continuous geosynthetic inclusions such as geogrids and geotextiles. The acceptance of geosynthetics in reinforced soil construction has been triggered by a number of factors, including aesthetics, ...
