Since then was employed by UoN as a Research Engineer, Research Academic, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor.

Research Expertise
Played a key role in the formulation and development of powerful new methods for performing numerical stability analysis for geotechnical structures in two and three dimensions. These methods, which are based on finite elements and nonlinear programming, are the first to be able to compute rigorous bounds on the limit load in three dimensions. Moreover, for large two-dimensional problems, they are several orders of magnitude faster than an equivalent linear programming formulation and can be run on a standard desktop PC. Coupled with convenient domain discretization tools and adaptive mesh refinement, the limit analysis procedures can be applied to a wide range of problems in geotechnical engineering, and obviate the need for more approximate techniques such as limit equilibrium. Indeed, they have already been used to study the behaviour of foundations on jointed rock, square and rectangular foundations, stability of layered soil, tunnels, anchors, excavations and pavements under moving loads. My research interests have been recently extended to the fields of non-structured mesh generation and adaptivity, shakedown analysis, elastoplasticity by optimization, specialised non-linear optimisation methods such as second-order cone and semidefinite programming.

Teaching Expertise

Administrative Expertise
Starting 2009 conduct the duties of a Program Convenor for Civil Engineering and Mining Transfer programs.

Collaborations
Has played a key role in the formulation and development of new methods for performing lower and upper bound limit analysis in two and three dimensions. These methods, which are based on finite elements and nonlinear programming, are the first to be able to compute rigorous bounds on the limit load in three dimensions. Moreover, for large two-dimensional problems, they are several orders of magnitude faster than equivalent linear programming formulations. Recently the upper bound method has been enhanced to deal with discontinuous velocity fields subject to general flow rule conditions and united with lower bound techniques under the static framework. The newly developed limit analysis procedures are applicable to a wide range of problems in geotechnical engineering, and obviate the need for approximate techniques such as limit equilibrium. Indeed, they have already been used to study the behaviour of foundations on jointed rock, square and rectangular foundations, tunnels, anchors and excavations. My research interests have recently been extended to the fields of non-structured mesh generation and adaptivity (completed APD, 2002), shakedown analysis, elastoplasticity by optimization (ARC grant 2006), and specialised non-linear optimisation methods such as second-order cone and semidefinite programming.

Rainfall induced landslides vary in depth and the deeper the landslide, the greater the damage it causes. This paper investigates, quantitatively, the risk of rainfall induced landslides by assessing the consequence of each failure. The influence of the spatial variability of the saturated hydraulic conductivity and the nature of triggering mechanisms on the risk of rainfall-induced landslides (for an infinite slope) are studied. It is shown that a critical spatial correlation length exists at which the risk is a maximum and the risk is higher when the failure occurs due to a generation of positive pore water pressure. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

In the study of landslides, it is generally assumed that an impermeable boundary exists at a certain depth and failure occurs at this boundary. In reality this is not always the case and failures can occur at any depth. This paper aims to study the effect of boundary conditions on landslides, using a series of seepage and stability analyses performed over a range of rainfall intensities, and for different failure mechanisms, by studying the failure time and depths corresponding to fully drained, partially drained, and impermeable boundaries. It is shown that these conditions can significantly affect the occurrence and depth of rainfall-induced landslides. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

The problem of finite element simulation of incompressible fluid flow in porous medium is considered. The porous medium is characterized by the X-ray microtomography technique in three dimensions. The finite calculus-based stabilization technique is reviewed to implement the equal order finite element interpolation functions for both velocity and pressure. A noble preconditioner, the nodal block diagonal preconditioner, is considered whose performance is thoroughly investigated. Combining this preconditioner with a standard iterative solver during the computational homogenization procedure, it is possible to carry out the large-scale fluid flow simulation for estimating permeability of the porous medium with reasonable accuracy and reliability. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

In this paper, numerical limit analysis and semianalytical rigid block techniques are used to investigate the effect of the tunnel spacing on the stability of two circular tunnels excavated side by side. The tunnels are modeled under plane-strain conditions, which implies that they are assumed to be infinitely long. Bounds on the stability of the tunnels are obtained using finite-element limit analysis, the numerical formulation of which is based on the upper and lower bounds theorems of classical plasticity. Solutions are obtained using advanced conic programming schemes to solve the resulting optimization problems, and upper and lower bound estimates on the stability of the tunnels are obtained for a range of geometries. These bounds, which bracket the true collapse load from above and below, are found to differ by at most 5% for the cases where the solution does not approach zero. Results from this study are summarized in stability charts for use by practitioners. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.

Trench stability is a conventional geotechnical problem; however, current evaluations are often based entirely on empiricism. This paper uses numerical finite-element upper and lower bound limit analysis to produce stability charts for two-dimensional and three-dimensional homogeneous and inhomogeneous undrained diaphragm wall trenches. Using the limit theorems cannot only provide a simple and useful way of analyzing the stability of the trench, but also avoid the shortcomings and arbitrary assumptions underpinning the limit equilibrium method. By considering the effects from the bentonite slurry pressures, the collapse load in this study has been bracketed to within ±8.5 or better by the numerical upper and lower bound limit analyses. The chart solutions can be used to predict either the critical depth or the safety factor of the trench and provide a convenient tool for preliminary designs by practicing engineers. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.

This paper presents a hybrid preconditioning technique for Conjugate Gradient method and discusses its parallel implementation on Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) for solving large sparse linear systems arising from application of interior point methods to conic optimization problems in the context of nonlinear Finite Element Limit Analysis (FELA) for computational Geomechanics. For large 3D problems, the use of direct solvers in general becomes prohibitively expensive due to exponentially growing memory requirements and computational time. Besides, the so-called saddle-point systems resulting from use of optimization framework is not an exemption. On the other hand, although preconditioned iterative methods have moderate storage requirements and therefore can be applied to much larger problems than direct methods, they usually exhibit high number of iterations to reach convergence. In present paper, we show that this problem can be effectively tackled using the proposed hybrid preconditioner along with an elaborate implementation on GPU. Furthermore, numerical results verify the robustness and efficiency of the proposed technique.

A version of the Particle Finite Element Method applicable to geomechanics applications is presented. A simple rigid-plastic material model is adopted and the governing equations are cast in terms of a variational principle which facilitates a straightforward solution via mathematical programming techniques. In addition, frictional contact between rigid and deformable solids is accounted for using an approach previously developed for discrete element simulations. The capabilities of the scheme is demonstrated on a range of quasi-static and dynamic problems involving very large deformations. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

The displacement finite element, lower and upper bound finite element limit analysis and analytical upper bound plasticity methods are employed to investigate the undrained limiting lateral resistance of piles in a pile row. Numerical analyses and analytical calculations are presented for various pile spacings and pile-soil adhesion factors. The numerical results are shown to be in excellent agreement with each other and also with the theoretical upper bounds produced by the analytical upper bound calculations. Based on the numerical and analytical results, an empirical equation is proposed for the calculation of the ultimate undrained lateral bearing capacity factor. This equation is subsequently used to calculate p-multipliers applicable to the lower part of piles in pile rows, which are compared to multipliers available in the literature (that are constant with depth). The comparison shows significant differences, indicating that the amount of reduction in lateral resistance due to group effects is not constant with depth as routinely assumed in practice. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

SUMMARY: This study extends the limit analysis techniques used for the computation of strict bounds of the load factors in solids to stability problems with interfaces, anchors and joints. The cases considered include the pull-out capacity of multi-belled anchors and the stability of retaining walls for multiple conditions at the anchor/soil and wall/soil interfaces. Three types of wall supports are examined: free standing wall, simply supported wall and anchored wall. The results obtained are compared against available experimental and numerical data. The conclusion drawn confirms the validity of numerical limit analysis for the computation of accurate bounds on limit loads and capturing failure modes of structures with multiple inclusions of complex interfaces and support conditions. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

The efficiency of several preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) schemes for solving of large sparse linear systems arising from application of interior point methods to nonlinear Finite Element Limit Analysis (FELA) is studied. Direct solvers fail to solve these linear systems in large sizes, such as large 2D and 3D problems, due to their high storage and computational cost. This motivates using iterative methods. However, iterative solvers are not efficient for difficult problems without preconditioning techniques. In this paper, the effect of various preconditioning techniques on the convergence behavior of the preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) is investigated through a detailed comparative study. Furthermore, numerical results of applying PCG to several sample systems are presented and discussed thoroughly in a parametric study. Our results suggest that while incomplete Cholesky preconditioners are by far the most efficient techniques for sequential computations, significant gains may result from use of sparse approximate inverse methods in parallel environment in this field.

In many geotechnical stability problems it is important to account for interface conditions between two or more adjoining bodies, e.g. retaining walls and footings with no-tension contact between soil and structure. These interfaces can be considered as discontinuities in stress and velocity fields developed in the system undergoing plastic collapse. Discontinuous variable fields are routinely employed in FE lower and upper bound limit analyses to improve the performance of lower order elements used to obtain rigorous bounds on the collapse factor. Traditionally, stress and velocity discontinuities have been implemented as a set of special equalities on the stress and velocity variables of adjacent nodes across inter-element boundaries. The major drawback of this approach is that the velocity discontinuities are restricted only to materials with Tresca or Mohr-Coulomb yield criteria. Recently, however, it was shown that velocity discontinuities can be represented by a patch of regular elements of zero thickness. This development opens the way for a discontinuous upper bound formulation to be used with general yield criteria in both two-and three-dimensions. By also treating stress discontinuities as a patch of zero thickness elements in a lower bound formulation, lower and upper bound FE methods can be used effectively to solve stability problems involving a wide variety of materials and interface conditions. © 2011 Springer Berlin Heidelberg.

Bearing capacity and failure mechanism of a buried footing in uniformsoils have been simulated using limit analysis and finite element analysis in the past decades. In realistic conditions, soil properties always vary spatially. This dramatically affects the failure mechanism of a footing and, in turn, its bearing capacity. This paper illustrates an investigation into the failure mechanism and bearing capacity of a vertically and centrally loaded footing embedded in spatially variable clayey soils using random lower bound limit analysis, random upper bound limit analysis and random finite element analysis. The footing was embedded to 4 times its width. Monte Carlo simulation was performed for 400 realizations of random fields of undrained shear strength. The majority of the bearing capacity factors obtained from the finite element method is bounded by those obtained from the lower bound limit analysis and the upper bound limit analysis, but more close to the upper bound results. A full-flow failure mechanism is observed for the deeply embedded footing in spatially variable soil. The shear path of the footing shows an unsymmetrical pattern, which results from the spatially variable and unsymmetrical random field of soil shear strength. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

Rainfall induced landslides can vary in depth and deeper the landslide, greater is the damage it causes. This paper investigates, quantitatively, the risk of rainfall induced landslides by assessing the consequence of each failure. The influence of the spatial variability of the saturated hydraulic conductivity on the risk of landslides is studied. It is shown that a critical spatial correlation length exists at which the risk is a maximum. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

This paper uses the finite element upper and lower bound limit analysis to assess the stability of slopes mostly found in embankment cases where frictional materials are filled on purely cohesive undrained clay. For comparison purposes, the commonly used stability assessment method, limit equilibrium method (LEM) is also employed. The final results for both methods are then presented in the form of comprehensive chart solutions for the convenience of practicing engineers during preliminary slope designs. The failure mechanism will also be discussed in this paper. Ultimately, it should be noted that finite element limit analysis method holds the upper hand as its prior assumptions are not required. Thus, the obtained failure mechanism from the slope stability analysis will be more realistic. Hence, it will provide a better understanding for the slope failure surface. Therefore, engineers should design more carefully when the LEM is applied to the slopes with frictional materials filled on purely cohesive undrained clay. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.

The mechanical properties of natural materials such as rocks and soils vary spatially. This randomness is usually modelled by random field theory so that the material properties can be specified at each point in space. When these point-wise material properties are mapped onto a finite element mesh, discretization errors are inevitable. In this study, the discretization errors are studied and suggestions for element sizes in relation with spatial correlation lengths are given. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Some common criteria for predicting the plastic failure of geomaterials, including the Mohr-Coulomb model, can be represented as conic constraints. Thus, by formulating finite element limit analysis (FELA) problems with such materials as second-order cone programs (SOCPs), solutions to small- and medium-scale problems are readily obtained using current state-of-the-art optimisation software that are based on polynomially-bounded interior-point methods (IPMs). Unfortunately, when progressing to large-scale 2D and 3D problems, these schemes often struggle with the increased computational burden of obtaining a search direction at each iteration of the IPM using conventional direct solvers that implement some form of Gaussian elimination. In this paper, current conic optimisation software is compared for some medium and large-sized FELA problems. Additionally, a scheme which avoids the factorisation of large linear systems, through the use of a Krylov subspace solver, is developed and compared to existing software. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
