  • Ground improvement using the vibro- stone column technique 

    McCabe, Bryan A.; McNeill, James A.; Black, Jonathan A. (Institution of Engineers in Ireland, 2007)
    The Vibro Stone Column technique is one of the most widely-used ground improvement processes in the world, although its potential for improving Irish sites has yet to be fully exploited. Historically the system has been ...
  • An improved experimental test set-up to study the performance of granular columns 

    Black, J.; Sivakumar, V.; Madhav, M.R.; McCabe, Bryan A. (ASTM International, 2006-03)
    This paper describes an innovative design of a newly developed large test setup for testing the performance of footings supported on soft clay reinforced with granular columns. This advanced testing method is used to examine ...
  • Modelling stone column installation in an elasto-viscoplastic soil 

    McCabe, Bryan A.; Sexton, Brian G. (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 ...
