Numerical analysis

The theory of homogenization of differential equations has become an open field of research in several areas of the exact sciences and has proved to be a powerful tool for understanding the global behavior of heterogeneous materials. Despite knowing that the deduction of Darcy’s law through the Navier-Stokes equations has been debated for deca...

The interaction between footings placed at close proximity affects the ultimate bearing capacity, settlement, and tilt of adjacent footings, especially under seismic loading. This paper reports the numerical finite element analysis to investigate the interference effect on the seismic bearing capacity of closely spaced rigid strip footings for a wide range of fo...

The influence of the compaction-induced stress (CIS) is experimentally, numerically and analytically evaluated on the behavior of reinforced soil walls (RSWs), under working stress conditions. Experimental studies have been carried out to evaluate the effect of the compaction condition at the back of the block facing on the behavior of geosynthetic reinforced so...

This article analyses the effect of the excavation level on the settlement results from a standard analysis of a piled raft system. For that, a published case history that involved a house located in Gothenburg, Sweden by Hansbo (1993) was examined. This structure was founded over a soft, highly plastic marine clay of varying thickness, where the founda...
