Appraising stone column settlement prediction methods using finite element analyses
(Springer Verlag, 2014-09-26)
Numerous approaches exist for the prediction of the settlement improvement offered by the vibro-replacement technique in weak or marginal soil deposits. The majority of the settlement prediction methods are based on the ...
Numerical modelling of pile foundation angular distortion
In this paper, the PLAXIS 3-D Foundation finite element (FE) software package, in conjunction with the nonlinear Hardening Soil (HS) constitutive model, is employed in an extensive parametric study of the angular distortion ...
Pile group settlement estimation: suitability of nonlinear interaction factors
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-06)
In this paper, predictions of pile settlement determined by appropriate superposition of two-pile interaction factors are compared with those computed from continuum analysis. A finite-element package is used in conjunction ...
Stone column settlement performance in structured anisotropic clays: the influence of creep
The recently developed elasto-viscoplastic Creep-SCLAY1S model has been used in conjunction with PLAXIS 2D to investigate the effectiveness of vibro-replacement in a creep-prone clay. The Creep-SCLAY1S model accounts for ...
