Modelling stone column installation in an elasto-viscoplastic soil
(Taylor & Francis, 2014-12-31)
The majority of numerical studies investigating stone column performance have used “wished-in-place” columns (no installation effects) in conjunction with elastoplastic soil models (no viscous effects). In the first part ...
Empirical correlations for the compression index of Irish soft soils
(ICE Institution of Civil Engineers, 2014-09-08)
Numerous correlations have been developed in the literature relating the compression index Cc of soft soils to simple index properties that serve as a useful reality check on oedometer test results. However, many of these ...
Driven cast-in-situ piles in granular soil: applicability of CPT methods for pile capacity
Most CPT-based design methods for driven piles are heavily influenced by research on preformed driven piles. In this paper, a critical review is made of the ability of these methods to predict the total capacity of driven ...
Real-time monitoring and performance of retaining structures
(NUI Galway, 2014-08)
The advent of reliable real-time monitoring devices has changed the way we monitor the construction of geotechnical infrastructure. This paper presents a case study where Shaped Accel Arrays (SAA) were employed as part ...
Appraising stone column settlement prediction methods using finite element analyses
(Springer Verlag, 2014-09-26)
Numerous approaches exist for the prediction of the settlement improvement offered by the vibro-replacement technique in weak or marginal soil deposits. The majority of the settlement prediction methods are based on the ...
