Numerical analysis

The use of deep foundations is a common practice in geotechnical civil engineering designs, in which the bearing capacity of these foundations occurs by side resistance, tip, or through the combination of both. In the case of caisson, the bearing capacity is often obtained by considering only the resistance of the lower end due to its bell-shaped geomet...

The breakwater failure at the Sergipe Harbor is a well-known event among the Brazilian geotechnical community, which provided great knowledge about the behavior of embankments on soft soils, although some questions still remain, since the back analysis diverged from the field outcome. In this context, this work aims to carry out a numerical analysis of ...

In this paper a 3D numerical model using a software based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), was developed and validated using the results obtained in a geotechnical centrifuge model of a piled raft system founded in soft soils undergoing regional subsidence. The piled raft co...

The interaction between footings placed at close proximity affects the ultimate bearing capacity, settlement, and tilt of adjacent footings, especially under seismic loading. This paper reports the numerical finite element analysis to investigate the interference effect on the seismic bearing capacity of closely spaced rigid strip footings for a wide range of fo...
