Bloggat om Soil Liquefaction
Mike Jefferies is a registered professional engineer (AB, BC: Canada). Graduating in civil engineering from King's College in London, his interest in theoretical soil mechanics led to a MSc from Imperial College. Shortly thereafter Mike immigrated to Canada, joining Golder Associates in 1978 and with whom he has worked worldwide. In 2009 independence beckoned and Mike now splits his work between pursuing advances in geomechanics and the more usual diet of a review consultant across a range of dam, mining, and offshore projects. Ken Been obtained his engineering education at the University of Cape Town in South Africa before going on to do his D.Phil in soil mechanics at the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. Since 1981 he has worked for Golder Associates in Canada, the U.K., Germany, and the USA, providing geotechnical engineering consulting to the oil and gas, mining, and civil infrastructure industry worldwide from the equator to the Arctic. He is a chartered engineer in the UK and a registered professional engineer in several Canadian provinces.
Introduction What is this book about? Why a critical-state view? Experience of liquefaction Outline of the development of ideas Dilatancy and the state parameter Framework for soil behaviour State parameter approach Evaluating soil behaviour with the state parameter Determining the critical state Uniqueness of the CSL Soil properties Plane strain tests for soil behaviour General soil behaviour from triaxial properties Constitutive modelling for liquefaction Introduction Historical background Representing the critical state Cambridge view State parameter view NorSand constitutive model Comparison of NorSand to experimental data Commentary on aspects of NorSand Determining state parameter in situ Introduction SPT versus CPT Inverse problem: A simple framework Calibration chambers Stress normalization Determining I from CPT Moving from calibration chambers to real sands Elasticity in situ Horizontal geostatic stress Alternative in situ tests to the CPT Commentary on state determination using the CPT Soil variability and characteristic states Introduction Effect of loose pockets on performance Effect of variability of in situ state on cyclic performance Nerlerk case history Assessing the characteristic state of sands Summary Static liquefaction and post-liquefaction strength Introduction Data from laboratory experiments Trends in laboratory data for su and sr Nature of static liquefaction Undrained NorSand Understanding from NorSand Plane strain versus triaxial conditions Steady-state approach to liquefaction Trends from full-scale experience Lower San Fernando Dam revisited How dense is dense enough?
