Bearing capacity
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">This note presents an alternative method for static load tests on piles (and caissons). Called Equilibrium Method by its first proponents, the method was applied in some load tests in Brazil, in addition to being the object of theoretical studies conducted at the Federal Univer...

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">Owing to the comeback of small-scale models, this paper presents results of an experimental study based on the effect of underground circular voids on strip footing placed on the edge of a cohesionless slope and subjected to eccentric loads. The bearing capacity-settlement rela...

<p>The advances in pile monitoring have motivated attempts to support dynamic formulas to estimate pile bearing capacity. Based on numerical analysis of the wave equation and the results of dynamic loading tests in three piles the paper deals with the investigation of the soundness of some of the most used in Brazil, namely, the so called Chellis-Velloso F...

<p>Spread footings are often supported in the upper zone of the soil profile, which is frequently unsaturated. It is common in geotechnical practice to use in situ testing to assess soil properties throughout the zone of influence for footings. These tests regularly include the Standard Penetration Test (SPT), and sometimes the Cone Penetration Test (CPT),...
