Prediction of pile settlement using artificial neural networks based on standard penetration test data
In recent years artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been applied to many geotechnical engineering problems with some degree of success. With respect to the design of pile foundations, accurate prediction of pile settlement ...
An improved experimental test set-up to study the performance of granular columns
(ASTM International, 2006-03)
This paper describes an innovative design of a newly developed large test setup for testing the performance of footings supported on soft clay reinforced with granular columns. This advanced testing method is used to examine ...
Ground improvement using the vibro- stone column technique
(Institution of Engineers in Ireland, 2007)
The Vibro Stone Column technique is one of the most widely-used ground improvement processes in the world, although its potential for improving Irish sites has yet to be fully exploited. Historically the system has been ...
Installation of a reduced-scale pile group in silt
(IHS BRE Press, 2008)
This paper presents measurements of total stress and pore pressure made during and after the installation of a reduced scale group of five piles in a soft estuarine silt. The instrumentation includes pore pressure and ...
