The InSight mission is a geophysical mission aimed at better understanding the structure of Mars and of the other rocky planets of the solar system. To do so, a lander accommodating two cameras, a very sensitive seismometer, and a dynamic self-penetrating heat probe nicknamed the mole were placed on the Mars surface by the Instrument Deployment Arm (IDA...

In this paper a 3D numerical model using a software based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), was developed and validated using the results obtained in a geotechnical centrifuge model of a piled raft system founded in soft soils undergoing regional subsidence. The piled raft co...

The use of Piled Raft Foundations Systems (PRFS) has been extended to different types of soils, including soft clay soils. In this type of soil it is possible that, in addition to the consolidation process due to the presence of loads, a subsidence process is generated, associated with variations in pore pressure with depth. In many cases, these variati...
