A future earthquake in the city of Wellington will cause widespread building and infrastructure damage, particularly on soft soils. It is also anticipated that all major transport routes (air, sea, rail and road) out of the region and many within the region ...

<p>Many empirical and theoretical CPT interpretation methods are broadly accepted and used in practice. These approaches tend to consider whether the cone penetration is drained or undrained, and then will consider the soil as either &ldquo;sand&rdquo; or ...

<p>Different challenging tunnel projects in the downtown area of the city of Mainz in Germany are presented. These tunnels run parallel in a distance of 4 m to max. 50 m. The tunnels were built in soft soil conditions consisting of filling, clay and marl layers ...
