Numerical analysis
The influence of the compaction-induced stress (CIS) is experimentally, numerically and analytically evaluated on the behavior of reinforced soil walls (RSWs), under working stress conditions. Experimental studies have been carried out to evaluate the effect of the compaction condition at the back of the block facing on the behavior of geosynthetic reinforced so...

This article analyses the effect of the excavation level on the settlement results from a standard analysis of a piled raft system. For that, a published case history that involved a house located in Gothenburg, Sweden by Hansbo (1993) was examined. This structure was founded over a soft, highly plastic marine clay of varying thickness, where the founda...

In this study, fifty driven piles located in the Santos Coastal Plain (“Baixada Santista”), Brazil, have been dynamically tested at various times after installation, indicating gain of capacity over time. The average side shear resistance, related to a low-OCR clayey layer – known as SFL soil, was evaluated over ti...

The use of geosynthetics as basal reinforcement in embankments constructed over soft soils provides technical and economic benefits by improving the stability of the structure, reducing horizontal displacements, homogenizing
differential settlements, and reducing time of construction. An adequate design should include, however, more than rou...
