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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
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.
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.
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.
