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 ...
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 ...
Creep improvement factors for vibro-replacement design
(ICE Publishing, 2017-02)
Although the vibro-replacement stone column technique is being deployed increasingly in soft cohesive soil deposits in which creep settlements may be significant/dominant, the majority of existing stone column settlement ...
