Ground motions and soil liquefaction during earthquakes by H. Bolton Seed( Book )

Prediction of flexible pavement deflections from laboratory repeated-load tests by H. Bolton Seed( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research is reported which constitutes significant progress toward the understanding of pavement behavior with regard to fatigue cracking of bituminous surfaces subjected to many repetitions of heavy loads. A thorough review is presented of existing information on the resilient characteristics of fine-grained subgrade soils, granular based materials, and bituminous surface courses. Suggested methods for predicting deflections of bituminous pavements from laboratory repeated-load tests are developed. Test data from field tests on prototype pavements and laboratory tests on the components of these pavements are used to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed methods
Scale and time effects in hydraulic fracturing by Hadi Widjaja( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experimental study was conducted to determine the effects of scale and time on hydraulic fracturing in compacted samples of Teton Dam silt and Pittsburg silty clay. A theory was developed to show how size of opening, time of pressurizing opening, and soil permeability are related to the occurrence of hydraulic fracturing. Finite element analyses were used to investigate the possible effects of nonlinear soil behavior. Both experimental and theoretical studies show that hydraulic fracturing can be initiated by seepage-induced forces without the presence of a preexisting flaw in the soil. (Author)
Evaluation of laboratory suction tests for prediction of heave in foundation soils : final report by Lawrence D Johnson( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commonly used methods for determining swell potential and predicting volume change and in situ heave are evaluated from the standpoint of simplicity, economy, reliability of test data, and simulation of field conditions. Swell potential is often defined as the percent swell from in situ water content to saturation under a surcharge pressure of 1 psi, whereas in situ heave is often defined as the percent swell from changes in the initial to assumed equilibrium moisture and confining conditions in the field. Increasing degrees of expansion or swell potentials usually correlate with increasing liquid limits and plastically indices
Influence of sample disturbance on sand response to cyclic loading by Kenji Mori( Book )

12 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the major developments in the evaluation of the liquefaction characteristics of sand deposits has been the recognition that these properties are influenced not only by the density of the deposit but also by such factors as the structure of the sand grains, the seismic history of the deposit, the coefficient of lateral earth pressure for the in-situ conditions, and the age of the deposit. Accordingly it is necessary to obtain and test truly undisturbed and representative samples if meaningful evaluation of in-situ performance are to be made on the basis of laboratory tests. This report presents the results of a study of sample disturbance during extraction and handling on the liquefaction characteristics of a sand having an artificially induced increased resistance to liquefaction due to the application of a prescribed prior strain history. It is shown that the effects of this strain history are for practical purposes obliterated by the sampling and handling procedure and suggestions are made for assessing the significance of such effects in the practical evaluation of laboratory test results.

Liquefaction potential of sand deposits under low levels of excitation by David P Carter( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many researchers currently believe that liquefaction will not occur at a site unless the ground surface accelerations exceed some value between about 0.05g and 0.1g. It seems probable however, that levels of earthquake shaking significantly less than this value have induced liquefaction in the past. In addition, it also seems likely that non-seismic sources of low level vibration such as trains have caused several large-scale liquefaction failures over the last forty years. Therefore, the aims of this investigation were as follows: (1) to determine whether train-induced ground vibrations might be capable of inducing liquefaction, and (2) to determine the minimum level of earthquake shaking required to liquefy sand deposits in-situ. Train-induced ground motions were recorded at 4 different sites. These records show that trains appear to be capable of generating peak ground surface accelerations significantly in excess of 0.10g at distances closer than about 6 meters from the tracks
