Numerical analysis

The theory of homogenization of differential equations has become an open field of research in several areas of the exact sciences and has proved to be a powerful tool for understanding the global behavior of heterogeneous materials. Despite knowing that the deduction of Darcy’s law through the Navier-Stokes equations has been debated for deca...

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...
