<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">In this paper, the progressive failure in an earth dam is evaluated upon a Multi-Laminate framework by considering 10 historical earthquakes in the world, along with their equivalent harmonic cyclic loading. Whenever the framework is given for any suggested plane by direction c...

<p> <span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">The Standard Penetration Test (SPT), widely used in Brazil, provides reference data to geotechnical projects. The data obtained are punctual and often dispersed due to its execution, that is, there is no concern in gathering and analyzing such information jointly for a specific region....

<p>This state-of-the-art paper on the hydromechanical behavior of unsaturated soils focuses on the interpretation of the compression curves of unsaturated soils in terms of effective stress, with the goal of understanding the relative impacts of suction on the effective stress, net yield stress, effective yield stress and slope of the virgin compression li...

<p>In this study, a particle-based approach is employed to simulate the fluid flow through single fractures considering detailed geometrical characteristics of the fracture walls at meso-scale. For this purpose, Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) which is an efficient computational fluid dynamic method for simulation of fluid flow in media with grossly irregul...
