The influence of stress path in the collapse swelling of soils at the laboratory [Presentation]
The influence of stress-path in the collapse-swelling of soils has been thoroughly studied at the laboratory. The final volume change is path dependent in the swelling zone, but not in the collapse zone. Notwithstanding, ...
Stress-strain paths in the collapse-swelling-shrinkage of soils in situ [Presentation]
The volume change of partly saturated soils is strongly path-dependent. A comparative study of laboratory and in situ stress-strain paths allows to choose the appropriate calculation stress-paths.
Un método de elementos finitos para el proyecto y cálculo de cimentaciones por pozos sobre suelos durante la expansión, retracción o colapso [Presentation]
En un estudio económico realizados en los Estados Unidos se ha demostrado que las arcillas expansivas han ocasionado más del doble de los daños producidos por inundaciones, huracanes y terremotos juntos. Por lo que respecta ...
Prediction and performance for seasonal swelling shrinkage of buildings on expansive clay [Presentation]
The seasonal movements of buildings and swelling-shrinking soil profile have been measured from 1976.
Damaged houses on pile foundation in expansive soil [Presentation]
A group of 176 residential houses, on soil probably expansive and pile foundation, has suffered damage in brick walls and partitions.
Foundation-structure interaction of a group of building wiht pile foundation on expansive soil [Presentation]
(Presses de l'Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, 1987)
A group of 176 residential houses, on a soil probably expansive, has suffered damage in brick walls and partitions. A three-dimensional finite element method has been applied to the set soil-piles-foundation beams to find ...
Soil-structure interaction in buildings wiht pier foundation on expansive soil [Presentation]
Five buildings with pier foundation on expansive clay have suffered slight structural and non-structural damage, but the foundation beams, resting on the ground were broken. The urbanization presents widespread damage. The ...
A Finite Element Method to Design and Calculate Pier Foundations in Expansive-collapsing Soils [Presentation]
A three-dimensional finite element method has been devised to calculate the movements and stresses of a pier foundation on expansive-collapsing soil isotropic, non-linear and non-homogeneous. The lack of linearity and ...
