This research deals with the question of whether, and under what circumstances, the presence of underground structures should be taken into account for the earthquake resistant design of neighbouring surface structures. In order to investigate the effect of underground structures on surface seismic motion, a series of dynamic plane-strain numerical analyses were conducted, considering a circular tunnel embedded in a viscoelastic half-space, and a harmonic SV-wave excitation. The numerical methodology, based on the Finite Difference Method, aims at quantifying the effect of the soil medium characteristics, excitation frequency, tunnel diameter, depth of construction, and relative flexibility of the lining compared to that of the surrounding soil. Conclusions contain preliminary criteria identifying the cases when the presence of an underground structure should be considered in the design of a surface structure. Copyright ASCE 2007.

Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.This note presents a new method to derive closed-form expressions describing the horizontal response of an end-bearing pile in viscoelastic soil subjected to harmonic loads at its head. The soil surrounding the pile is assumed as a linearly viscoelastic layer. The propagation of waves in the soil and pile is treated mathematically by three-dimensional and one-dimensional theories, respectively. Unlike previous studies of the problem, the formulation presented allows the governing equations of the soil to be solved directly, eliminating the need to introduce potential functions. Accordingly, the dynamic response of the pile is obtained by means of the initial parameter method, invoking the requirement for continuity at the pile¿soil interface. It is demonstrated that the derived compact solution matches exactly an existing solution that utilises potential functions to formulate the problem. Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd.This paper presents an analytical method to compute the dynamic response of a thin-walled pipe pile due to a vertical transient point load acting on its head. Inspired from challenges faced during the interpretation of low-strain integrity tests on pipe piles, the proposed method moves beyond the widely used one-dimensional wave theory to consider the asymmetric nature of the problem, and stress wave propagation along both the vertical and circumferential directions. Coupling of pipe pile-viscoelastic soil vibration is considered via modeling the outer and inner soil as a series of infinitesimally thin layers in perfect contact with the pile, and their low-strain properties are directly introduced in the solution. The methodology is validated against numerical results, before discussing the mechanisms governing the dynamic response of the pipe pile-soil system to the impact load, with emphasis on the vertical velocity measured at a hypothetical receiver placed on the pile head. Additional results from a parametric analysis are used to provide insights on the accurate estimation of the arrival time of the receiving wave, and the optimal location of the receiver.

© 2015 American Physical Society.We investigate numerically the mechanisms governing horizontal dragging of a rigid cylinder buried inside granular matter, with particular emphasis on enumerating drag and lift forces that resist cylinder movement. The recently proposed particle finite element method is employed, which combines the robustness of classical continuum mechanics formulations in terms of representing complex aspects of the material constitutive behavior, with the effectiveness of discrete element methods in simulating ultralarge deformation problems. The investigation focuses on the effect of embedment depth, cylinder roughness, granular matter macromechanical properties, and of the magnitude of the cylinder's horizontal displacement on the amplitude of the resisting forces, which are discussed in light of published experimental data. Interpretation of the results provides insight on how the material flow around the cylinder affects the developing resistance, and a mechanism is proposed to describe the development of a steady-state drag force at large horizontal movements of the cylinder.

This paper presents a study on the amplification of horizontal soil stresses during flat dilatometer test (DMT) blade penetration based on three-dimensional total and effective stress numerical analyses, while considering stress-flow coupling and large deformations. The focus here is on saturated clays, and the effect of soil stress history on the horizontal stress index is discussed in detail. The obtained results appear to be in good agreement with published and new field data, leading to the proposal of two new expressions for estimating the overconsolidation ratio and the earth pressure coefficient at rest directly from flat dilatometer tests in estuarine clays.

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd.We present an analytical study on the vertical vibration of an elastic pile embedded in poroelastic soil. The poroelastic soil is divided into a homogeneous half-space underlying the pile base and a series of infinitesimally thin independent layers along its shaft. The dynamic interaction problem is solved by extending a method originally proposed for an embedded rigid foundation. The validity of the derived solution is verified via comparison with existing solutions. Arithmetical examples are used to demonstrate the sensitivity of the vertical pile impedance to the relative rigidity of the two soil parts.

A new perspective on the numerical simulation of cone penetration in sand is presented, based on an enhanced critical state model implemented in an explicit-integration finite element code. Its main advantage, compared to similar studies employing simpler soil models, is that sand compressibility can be described with a single set of model parameters, irrespective of the stress level and the sand relative density. Calibration is based on back-analysis of published centrifuge experiments, while results of the methodology are also compared against independent tests. Additional analyses are performed to investigate sand state effects on cone penetration resistance, in comparison with empirical expressions from the literature. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Numerical simulation of cone penetration in sand is performed by means of a computationally efficient critical state model implemented in an explicit-integration finite element code. Its main advantage, compared to other published studies employing simpler soil models such as the Drucker-Prager, is that sand compressibility can be described with a single set of model parameters, irrespective of the stress level and the sand relative density. Calibration of the constitutive model is based on back-analysis of published centrifuge tests results, and consequently the predictions of the numerical methodology are compared against independent tests. Additional analyses are performed for proposing a new simplified formula to correlate the cone penetration resistance with the in situ sand relative density. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

A large-deformation numerical methodology is applied to simulate the interaction effects for a pipeline installed in a trench backfilled with loosely deposited dry sand, focusing on shallow buried pipelines subjected to lateral displacements relative to the surrounding soil. Based on the backfill-pipeline deformation mode under shallow embedment conditions, described in previous experimental studies, analyses are performed while considering only the critical state shear strength parameters of the backfill. The numerical methodology is validated against experimental full-scale test measurements from the literature, for pipelines buried in uniform dry loose and medium sand. Parametric analyses are performed to generate approximate formulas and charts for calculating (i) the maximum force on the pipeline and (ii) the minimum trench dimensions to eliminate interaction with the surrounding natural ground. Application of the proposed approach in the prediction of independent full-scale test results for a pipeline embedded in a shallow trench demonstrates its effectiveness, and underlines the effect of trench dimensioning on the response of the pipeline. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Diverse vertical embedment response is observed for partially embedded pipelines when experimentally tested under similar initial and boundary conditions. Although vertical resistance of pipelines is presented through simple analytical solutions, a number of factors contribute to complications in implementing these theories into practice. The objectives of this research is to provide a more detailed investigation on the vertical embedment for the partially-embedded pipelines (PEPs) using a coupled large deformation finite element (CLDFE) analysis with contact. A modified Cam Clay (MCC) model represents the elastoplastic response of the soil. The model of pipeline embedment investigates the effect of drainage condition on heave forming with respect to rate of penetration. Besides, effect of frictional contact on the heave development and wedging effect is investigated and design-related considerations are proposed. It is shown that depending on the rate of pipeline penetration and soil consolidation rate, the pipeline penetration response can be categorised as undrained, partially drained or fully drained. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
