<p>The practice of soil-cement reinforced layers to bear shallow foundations is a feasible option in low bearing capacity soils. This paper addresses the interpretation of plate load tests bearing on compacted artificially cemented sand layers of distinct sizes and shapes (cylindrical and prismatic) overlaying a weakly bonded residual soil stratum. Static ...

This article addresses the importance of considering foundation-structure interaction in the design of high-rise buildings. Embedding the behavior of the foundation in the analysis of structures is fundamental to simulate the real deformability of these constructions. On the foundation design side, the addition of structure stiffness implies in the reduction of ...

<p>In this study, a particle-based approach is employed to simulate the fluid flow through single fractures considering detailed geometrical characteristics of the fracture walls at meso-scale. For this purpose, Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) which is an efficient computational fluid dynamic method for simulation of fluid flow in media with grossly irregul...

<p>This paper intends to consolidate the theory of risk management into practical applications in geotechnical engineering, presenting concepts, clarifying procedures and discussing openly its difficulties and trends. It brings the evolution of the risk concept and its application to engineering, worldwide and in Brazil, showing the trend of risk managemen...
