<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 ...

In this study, a geotechnical testing program was conducted to evaluate the engineering properties of old municipal solid waste sampled in Whamyung MSW landfill site, Busan, Korea.

The application of suction on a saturated soil specimen consolidated in an oedometer may cause the lateral shrinkage. This study tries to simulate such situation using triaxial testing apparatus and to quantify the lateral deformation due to drying and shearing. ...

This report uses the measured S-wave velocities for recovered core samples by Lee and others (2008) at the KC151 site, reconstituted sands by Zimmer (2003), and well-log data at the Walker Ridge and Alaminos Canyon sites acquired during JIP Leg II (Boswell ...

A literature survey was conducted and fracture influences on engineering behavior of glacial till are summarized, specifically with regard to saturated hydraulic conductivity, consolidation potential, and shear strength

<p>In 1984 an embankment instability occurred in a dike recently heightened in stages. After the instability an extensive research program has been set up to back analyze the settlements and the pore pressures measured during construction, focussing especially ...

<p>As a material, soft clay poses many challenges to geotechnical engineers. The<br />material responds in a spectacular manner to stress changes. The paper describes the behaviour of five embankments constructed on lightly overconsolidated soft Malaysian ...

Analysis of the settlement at five sites on San Francisco Bay Mud and two sites on Boston Blue Clay has shown that where dessicated crust has developed on the clay, spatial variations in the preconsolidation pressure are the most important cause of differential ...
