numerical analysis
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 foundation was ...

<p>In this study, fifty driven piles located in the Santos Coastal Plain (“Baixada Santista”), Brazil, have been dynamically tested at various times after installation, indicating gain of capacity over time. The average side shear resistance, related to a low-OCR clayey layer – known as SFL soil, was evaluated over ti...
