Stone column effectiveness in soils with creep: a numerical study
(Taylor & Francis, 2016-03-16)
While it is well established that vibro stone columns reduce primary settlement and improve bearing capacity, their effect on creep compression has largely been overlooked to date. However, with increasing pressure to ...
Stone column settlement performance in structured anisotropic clays: the influence of creep
The recently developed elasto-viscoplastic Creep-SCLAY1S model has been used in conjunction with PLAXIS 2D to investigate the effectiveness of vibro-replacement in a creep-prone clay. The Creep-SCLAY1S model accounts for ...
Viscoelastic creep of FRP reinforced glulam
(NUI Galway, 2016-08-29)
The reinforcement of timber using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) rods or plates is widely accepted as an effective method of increasing the strength and stiffness of members, while at the same time reducing the variability ...
