In engineering practice, loading varies with time. However, the classical one-dimensional theory of consolidation assumes the stress increase is instantaneously applied. Many approaches to the problem of time-dependent loading have been proposed over the years, from approximate methods to full developments of differential equations. The paper presents a...

In the design of piles partially embedded in rock, the main factors that influence the strength and deformability of the rock and the transmission of loads from pile to rock are of utmost relevance to pile behavior. Most empirical methods were developed based on data from specific regions. Differences in geological conditions, drilling methods and other...
