Application of Effective Stress Concept in the Analysis of Cohesive Soils

The application of load on a saturated soil increases the pore water pressure. This sets up a hydraulic gradient which causes the water to...

Evaluation of Surcharge Pressure of Pad Foundations on Retaining Walls

Surcharge pressure on earth retaining walls can arise from different sources such as loads from adjacent buildings, fills, roadways and traffic actions, construction activities,...

Sheet Pile Walls and their Uses

Sheet pile walls are thin retaining walls constructed to retain earth, water, or any other fill material. They are typically thinner than masonry or...

Recommended Depth of Exploration for Site Investigation

Soil is a complex and highly variable product of nature, and the extent of this variation is known in advance. As a result, site...

Design of Moment-Resisting Column Base Plates

In the design of portal frames and other steel structures, moment-resisting bases can be provided if large lateral forces and bending moments are anticipated....

Plates on Elastic Foundation

Many problems of practical importance can be related to the solution of plates resting on an elastic foundation. Reinforced concrete pavements of highways and...

Modulus of Subgrade Reaction of Soils

The modulus of subgrade reaction ks (also called the coefficient of subgrade reaction of soil) is the ratio between the pressure against a flat...

Difference Between Pile Load Test and Pile Integrity Test

Pile foundations are slender structures used to transmit superstructure load to firmer sub-soil stratum beneath the natural ground surface. They can also be used...

Design of Pile Cap Using Staad Foundation Advanced

Pile caps are rigid plate structures that are used to transfer superstructure load from columns to a group of piles. They are usually subjected...

Modeling of Soils Using Isogeometric Analysis

Researchers from the Department of Construction Sciences, Lund University, Sweden have presented isogeometric analysis as an alternative to finite element analysis for modelling of...

Massive Diaphragm Wall Reinforcement Installation (Video and Discussion)

A video was recently shared on Linkedin showing a huge and long reinforcement cage for a diaphragm wall being put in place. Please watch...

Design of Pile Foundation System for Bridge Piers

Piles are the most preferred type of foundation for supporting the piers of overhead bridges. They offer greater resistance to vertical and horizontal actions...
