Conference of International Association for Computer Methods and Recent Advances in Geomechanics, IACMAG 2014, 129-134 (2015)

The main aim of this study is to apply a robust time integration technique for simulating the behaviour of unsaturated soils subjected to dynamic loads. The governing equations of the three soil phases and their interactions are derived based on the mass conservation law, linear momentum balance and energy conservation of each phase in an isothermal environment. In addition, a number of experimental equations are employed to represent the hydraulic conductivity and the drainage characteristics of the soil, such as the suction-saturation relationship and the dependency of the hydraulic conductivity on suction. The global system of equations is then solved by using an implicit time-stepping algorithm based on the Generalised-a integration scheme. The accuracy of the numerical model and the finite element code is verified by comparing the numerical results with results obtained by an analytical solution. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

The behaviour of a test embankment constructed on a soft clayey deposit in Saga, Japan, was simulated by both three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) finite element analyses (FEA). Floating soil-cement columns had been installed in the clay prior to construction of the embankment. Comparing the results of 3D and 2D FEA indicates that 2D analysis predicts incorrect results in terms of the lateral displacement and bending moment in the columns under the toe of the embankment. In the 2D analysis, the rows of columns were modelled by continuous walls, which partially block the interaction between the soil layers and the columns and influence the simulated lateral displacement and bending moment in the column. It has been postulated that compaction of fill material during the construction process has a significant influence on both the magnitude and pattern of the lateral displacement of the column under the toe of the embankment. Pragmatically, this influence can be indirectly simulated by reducing the stiffness and increasing Poisson's ratio of the embankment fill material. Finally, both the measured and FEA results indicate that the columns not only reduced the total settlement but also accelerated the settlement rate of the deposit under the embankment loading, due to the much higher stiffness of the column material.

2015Yang C, Sheng D, Carter JP, Sloan SW, 'Modelling the plastic anisotropy of Lower Cromer Till', Computers and Geotechnics, 69 22-37 (2015)

Experimental data on Lower Cromer Till (LCT), a sandy silty-clay, are re-evaluated enabling a study on the effects of plastic anisotropy of soil fabric. The results of virgin constant stress ratio consolidation tests reveal that an equilibrium state is achieved and maintained under any specific radial loading path, with characteristics of a unique anisotropic fabric and a unique straining mode. The inclination of the plastic dilatancy and the yield surface from the hydrostatic axis provides a means of quantifying this equilibrium state of the soil fabric. A unique fabric anisotropy at critical state is naturally obtained. Rotational hardening laws are then proposed to quantify the changes in plastic anisotropy of soil fabric for all stress ranges. Constitutive relations are formulated within the framework of Critical Sate Soil Mechanics, with a non-associated flow rule logically determined from experiments. The proposed rotational hardening laws have been systematically validated against a large bank of laboratory tests on LCT samples, covering a variety of deposition conditions, stress histories, and overconsolidation ratios. Comparisons illustrate the feasibility and efficiency of the proposed framework in describing the plastic anisotropy of LCT, which may suggest possible application to other types of clays.

2015Sabetamal H, Nazem M, Sloan SW, Carter JP, 'Frictionless contact formulation for dynamic analysis of nonlinear saturated porous media based on the mortar method', International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics, (2015)

Summary: A finite element algorithm for frictionless contact problems in a two-phase saturated porous medium, considering finite deformation and inertia effects, has been formulated and implemented in a finite element programme. The mechanical behaviour of the saturated porous medium is predicted using mixture theory, which models the dynamic advection of fluids through a fully saturated porous solid matrix. The resulting mixed formulation predicts all field variables including the solid displacement, pore fluid pressure and Darcy velocity of the pore fluid. The contact constraints arising from the requirement for continuity of the contact traction, as well as the fluid flow across the contact interface, are enforced using a penalty approach that is regularised with an augmented Lagrangian method. The contact formulation is based on a mortar segment-to-segment scheme that allows the interpolation functions of the contact elements to be of order N. The main thrust of this paper is therefore how to deal with contact interfaces in problems that involve both dynamics and consolidation and possibly large deformations of porous media. The numerical algorithm is first verified using several illustrative examples. This algorithm is then employed to solve a pipe-seabed interaction problem, involving large deformations and dynamic effects, and the results of the analysis are also compared with those obtained using a node-to-segment contact algorithm. The results of this study indicate that the proposed method is able to solve the highly nonlinear problem of dynamic soil-structure interaction when coupled with pore water pressures and Darcy velocity.

A method has been developed for the consolidation analysis of dredged mud or clayey soil deposits containing strip-type, prefabricated horizontal drains (PHDs), based on either the axisymmetric or plane strain unit cell theory. An approximate consolidation theory has also been proposed for a surface soil layer subjected to vacuum pressure applied through the PHDs at a shallow depth from the surface. The proposed method and the consolidation theory have then been applied to the analysis of a field project in Japan involving dredged mud consolidated by vacuum pressure with PHDs. By comparing the field-measured and analyzed results in terms of water content distributions with depth and the thickness variation of the deposit, the usefulness of the proposed method has been demonstrated. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

The excess pore water pressure distribution (u) induced by the penetration of a piezocone into clay and its dissipation behaviour have been investigated by laboratory model tests, theoretical analysis and numerical simulation. Based on the results of the tests and the analysis, a semi-theoretical method has been proposed to predict the piezocone penetration-induced pore pressure distribution in the radial direction from the shoulder of the cone. The method can consider the effect of the undrained shear strength (su), over-consolidation ratio (OCR) and rigidity index (Ir) of the soil. With a reliably predicted initial distribution of u and the measured curve of dissipation of pore water pressure at the shoulder of the cone (u2), the coefficient of consolidation of the soil in the horizontal direction (ch) can be back-fitted by analysis of the pore pressure dissipation. Comparing the back-fitted values of ch with the values directly estimated by a previously proposed method indicates that the previously proposed method can be used reliably to estimate ch values from non-standard dissipation curves (where u2 increases initially and then dissipates with time). © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper high-order triangular elements are implemented in the framework of the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method for the analysis of large strain coupled consolidation problems in geomechanics. The theory of coupled consolidation, as well as details of the high-order elements, including quadratic (6-noded), cubic (10-noded), quartic (15-noded) and quantic (21-noded) elements, are discussed. The accuracy and the efficiency of high-order elements in the analysis of undrained problems are presented by solving two classical geomechanics problems. These include the bearing capacity of soil under a footing and the large deformation analysis of a vertical cut subjected to a surcharge loading. Based on the numerical results, it is shown that high-order elements not only improve the accuracy of the solution, but can also significantly decrease the required computational time.

This study identifies the relative magnitude of horizontal stress change below a series of parallel longwall panels as a consequence of multi-seam mining. The investigation method yields an upper bound to the horizontal stress change by assuming that the fractured and caved overburden above the supercritical longwall panels is not able to support any lateral load. Finite element modelling was conducted to consider the effects of the following variables on the horizontal stress redistribution: the ratio of the equivalent width of the extracted area to the overburden depth, the ratio of the original horizontal to vertical in situ stress components, and anisotropy in the rock mass behaviour. The key findings of this research are that the maximum horizontal stress induced as a consequence of extracting multiple supercritical longwall panels will be within approximately 10% of the original in situ horizontal stress for the case of isotropic rock strata. The magnitude of this horizontal stress may be larger in a stiff stratum if the overall sequence of strata consists predominantly of softer rocks. Anisotropy in the strata underlying the extracted longwall panels also causes an increase in the maximum horizontal stress induced into the immediate floor of the first extracted seam, and an increase in the rate of dissipation of horizontal stress change with depth. These findings indicate that a significant increase in horizontal stress relative to the original in situ horizontal stress should not be expected in multi-seam mining situations. The results from this study need to be considered in conjunction with predicted vertical stress distributions in order to accurately predict the overall stress environment likely to be encountered when conducting multi-seam mining. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

2014Bouassida M, Carter JP, 'Optimization of design of column-reinforced foundations', International Journal of Geomechanics, 14 (2014) [C1]

The design of foundations on soft ground reinforced by columns usually involves two important verifications, namely, checking for adequate bearing capacity and checking for acceptable settlement performance. This paper details a comprehensive methodology for determining the optimized portion of the ground area that should be improved by the installation of columns. The optimization is required to avoid an overly conservative design and, consequently, the use of uneconomical quantities of material to construct the columnar reinforcement. The basis of the suggested methodology consists of first estimating the minimum improvement area ratio (IAR) required to ensure attainment of the required design bearing capacity of the reinforced soil and then determining an upper-bound or maximum value of IAR by considering the issue of allowable settlement. Optimization is then performed on the IAR within the range defined by these bearing capacity and settlement limits. Analysis of three case studies provides an illustration of the implementation of this novel design methodology, which has been incorporated into software recently developed to assist in the design of soil foundations reinforced by columns and to provide cost-effective solutions for this type of foundation.

A method has been developed for the consolidation analysis of dredged mud or clayey soil deposits containing strip-type, prefabricated horizontal drains (PHDs), based on either the axisymmetric or plane strain unit cell theory. An approximate consolidation theory has also been proposed for a surface soil layer subjected to vacuum pressure applied through the PHDs at a shallow depth from the surface. The proposed method and the consolidation theory have then been applied to the analysis of a field project in Japan involving dredged mud consolidated by vacuum pressure with PHDs. By comparing the field-measured and analyzed results in terms of water content distributions with depth and the thickness variation of the deposit, the usefulness of the proposed method has been demonstrated.

Two methods, namely the air-tight sheet method and the vacuum-drain method (sheetless), are generally used to conduct vacuum consolidation in the field. The advantages and disadvantages of both methods and the techniques for preventing vacuum leakage through a middle sand layer in a deposit, as well as the method for maintaining vacuum pressure when large settlement occurs, have been described. Vacuum pressure is an isotropic consolidation pressure applied to a soil deposit, and the deformation induced is different from that induced by a surcharge (e.g. the weight of an embankment). Two typical case histories in Japan are presented and deformation analyses were conducted. In one case history the vacuum-drain method was used with vacuum pressure alone, and in the other a combination of embankment loading and vacuum pressure was applied employing the air-tight sheet method. It is shown that under vacuum pressure loading, the ground deformation (settlement and lateral displacement) can be calculated reliably using a method proposed previously. For the case involving a combination of vacuum pressure and embankment load, the settlements under the embankment centreline can be estimated reasonably assuming one-dimensional deformation conditions.

Based on examination of existing field results, an empirical equation has been suggested for estimating the likely range of the maximum value of the net lateral displacement (dnm) of ground improved by the installation of prefabricated vertical drains (PVDs) and subjected to the combined effects of vacuum pressure and embankment loading. The effects on lateral displacement of the magnitudes of embankment loading, as well as the vacuum pressure, the loading rate, and the undrained shear strength and consolidation properties of the soil deposit, have been explicitly included in a newly defined parameter, which is given by the ratio of an index pressure to the representative soil shear strength (RLS). The ratio of dnm to the surface settlement under the embankment centreline, Sf, is also defined as the normalised maximum (net) lateral displacement (NLD). A direct relationship between RLS and NLD has been proposed, with a prescribed range, based on the results of 18 field case histories from 12 different project sites in five countries. It is suggested that the proposed relationship can be used as a preliminary design tool for preloading projects involving combinations of a vacuum pressure and an embankment pressure as well as PVD improvement.

The effect of hydraulic hysteresis inherent in soil water characteristic curves is explored stochastically in seepage analysis of engineered soil covers. A multi-layer soil cover with random top boundary flux conditions is simulated with the First Order Second Moment method. Water inflow and outflow at the top boundary are chosen as two random variables. The capillary barrier mechanism is taken into account, and the breakthrough hydraulic head at the bottom boundary of the soil cover is adopted as the performance function. Results show that the hysteretic hydraulic model predicts a more conservative result than does the traditional nonhysteretic hydraulic model when simulating seepage in unsaturated, multi-layer soil covers. The dependence of the soil cover performance on its exterior environment during construction is also identified, with a relatively arid season significantly improving the soil cover's functionality. Furthermore, multi-layer soil covers with a proper selection of geotechnical materials provide better performance than a single layer of soil cover of the same thickness. The importance of hydraulic hysteresis in soil covers subjected to alternative climatic actions is emphasized. © 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers.

The Cam Clay model and most models subsequently developed within the critical state framework are normally formulated to represent the behaviour of soils reconstituted in the laboratory, where the soil structure, if present, is standardised by the sample preparation method. However, as seen from both laboratory and in situ tests, soil behaviour may depend significantly on its structure. The structures of soils found in situ vary greatly, depending on their formation processes and their mechanical, electro-chemical and biological histories. The authors have proposed a relatively simple predictive model, known as the Structured Cam Clay (SCC) model, for solving practical geotechnical problems. In this paper a review of the performance of the Structured Cam Clay model is presented. The paper contains the following four parts. (1) A summary is made of the generalisation of the critical state framework into a new four dimensional space, consisting of the current stress state, stress history, the current voids ratio, and the current soil structure. The key assumption of the theoretical derivation is that both the hardening and destructuring of natural clays are dependent on plastic volumetric deformation. (2) The main concepts and the formulation of the Structure Cam Clay model are introduced within the generalized framework and an explicit stress-strain matrix is obtained for SCC. (3) The capacity of the model for describing laboratory single element tests is evaluated and the main features of the model are summarised. (4) Techniques for refining the Structured Cam Clay model are also discussed.

An exponential finite-element model for multiple-porosity contaminant transport in soils is proposed. The model combines three compartments for dissolved contaminants: a primary compartment of diffusion-advection transport with nonequilibrium sorption, a secondary compartment with diffusion in rectangular or spherical soil blocks, and a tertiary compartment for immobile solutions within the primary compartment. Hence the finite-element model can be used to solve four types of mass-transfer problems which include: (1) intact soils, (2) intact soils with multiple sources of nonequilibrium partitioning, (3) soils with a network of regularly spaced fissures, and (4) structured soils. Hitherto, mobile/immobile compartments, fissured soils, and nonequilibrium sorption have been treated separately or in pairs. A Laplace transform is applied to the governing equations to remove the time derivative. A Galerkin residual statement is written and a finite-element method is developed. Both polynomial and exponential finite elements are implemented. The solution is inverted to the time domain numerically. The method is validated by comparison to analytical and boundary element predictions. Exponential elements perform particularly well, speeding up convergence significantly. The scope of the method is illustrated by analyzing contamination from a set of four waste repositories buried in fissured clay. © ASCE.

2005Liyanapathirana DS, Carter JP, Airey DW, 'Numerical modeling of nonhomogeneous behavior of structured soils during triaxial tests', International Journal of Geomechanics, 5 10-23 (2005) [C1]

The nonhomogeneous behavior of structured soils during triaxial tests has been studied using a finite element model based on the Structured Cam Clay constitutive model with Biot-type consolidation. The effect of inhomogeneities caused by the end restraint is studied by simulating drained triaxial tests for samples with a height to diameter ratio of 2. It was discovered that with the increase in degree of soil structure with respect to the same soil at the reconstituted state, the inhomogeineities caused by the end restraint will increase. By loading the sample at different strain rates and assuming different hydraulic boundary conditions, inhomogeneities caused by partial drainage were investigated. It was found that if drainage is allowed from all faces of the specimen, fully drained tests can be carried out at strain rates about ten times higher than those required when the drainage is allowed only in the vertical direction at the top and bottom of the specimen, confirming the findings of previous studies. Both end restraint and partial drainage can cause bulging of the triaxial specimen around mid-height. Inhomogeneities due to partial drainage influence the stress-strain behavior during destructuring, a characteristic feature of a structured soil. With an increase in the strain rate, the change in voids ratio during destructuration reduces, but, in contrast, the mean effective stress at which destructuration commences was found to increase. It is shown that the stress-strain behavior of the soil calculated for a triaxial specimen with inhomogeneities, based on global measurements of the triaxial response, does not represent the true constitutive behavior of the soil inside the test specimen. For most soils analyzed, the deviatoric stress based on the global measurements is about 25% less than that for the soil inside the test specimen, when the applied axial strain is about 30%. Therefore it can be concluded that the conventional global measurements of the sample response may not accurately reflect the true stress-strain behavior of a structured soil. This finding has major implications for the interpretation of laboratory triaxial tests on structured soils. © ASCE.

An approach for modeling this influence for various structured geomaterials is proposed by using the disturbed state concept. An isotropic compression model is formulated on three basic assumptions. A special version of the proposed model is also described for situations where the compression is one-dimensional. The proposed compression model is used to simulate the behavior of a variety of structured geomaterials such as clays, sands, calcareous soils, clay-shale, soft rock, unsaturated soils, and soils artificially treated by adding chemical agents or mechanical reinforcement, and the model is evaluated on the basis of these simulations. A general discussion on the influence of the structure of geomaterials on their mechanical properties is also presented. © ASCE.

2003Liu MD, Carter JP, 'General strength criterion for geomaterials', International Journal of Geomechanics, 3 253-259 (2003) [C1]

This note presents the results of a study on the variation of the strength of geomaterials. A general isotropic strength criterion is proposed which unifies the peak strength and critical state (or steady state) strength into one strength criterion. The proposed criterion describes the strength of a geomaterial in terms of its current stress state, its current voids ratio, and the bonding of its constituents. The proposed criterion has been applied to sand, clay, cemented sand and rocks. Based on comparisons presented between theoretical simulations and experimental data, it is seen that the proposed criterion describes successfully the isotropic strength of all these materials for general stress conditions. © ASCE.

2003Liu MD, Carter JP, 'Volumetric deformation of natural clays', International Journal of Geomechanics, 3 236-252 (2003) [C1]

A theoretical framework to describe the behavior of natural clay is proposed in a new four-dimensional space, consisting of the current stress state, stress history, the current voids ratio, and a measure of the current soil structure. A key assumption of the proposed framework is that both the hardening and the destructuring of natural clay are dependent on plastic volumetric deformation. Two different assumptions about how this destructuring occurs are proposed, based on which two versions of a complete constitutive model have been formulated. The behavior of reconstituted soil can also be simulated by the proposed model as a special case where the structure of soil has no effect on soil deformation. Characteristics of the proposed model are demonstrated through systematic simulations of the influence of soil structure on clay behavior. The simulated behavior of natural clay is compared qualitatively with widely available experimental data. It is seen that the proposed model successfully represents the main features of natural clays with various soil structures. © ASCE / DECEMBER 2003.

Professor John Robert Booker died in Concord Hospital in Sydney on 13 January 1998, after a long and courageously-fought battle against cancer. His death cut short a brilliant academic career and deprived the Australian geotechnical and engineering mechanics communities of one of its most eminent members. At the time of his death John Booker held a personal chair in engineering mechanics in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney, and he was widely regarded as one of the finest researchers of his generation working in the field of theoretical geomechanics. His long battle with cancer did not deflect him from his life's work. While understandably, he was unable to hold formal classes during the last months of his life, it is significant that he was active in research until his very last weeks, such was his love for and dedication to his work. John Booker was a warm, friendly, caring man who touched many lives. He was mentor to most with whom he came into close contact, students and colleagues alike. He is survived by his second wife Elizabeth, daughters from his first marriage, Katie and Lucie, sister Judith and mother Joan. © Australian Academy of Science 2002.

2002Yu HS, Carter JP, 'Rigorous similarity solutions for cavity expansion in cohesive-frictional soils', International Journal of Geomechanics, 2 233-258 (2002)

The problem of cavity expansion from zero radius has no characteristic length and therefore possesses a similarity solution, in which the cavity pressure remains constant and the continuing deformation is geometrically self-similar. In this case, the incremental velocity approach first used by Hill [7] to analyze cavity expansion in Tresca materials may be extended to derive a solution for limiting pressure of cavity expansion in Mohr-Coulomb materials. An analytical solution for cavity limit pressures in Mohr-Coulomb materials was suggested by Carter et al. [2]. However, the solution of Carter et al. may only be regarded as approximate since the convected part of the stress rate was neglected in their derivation. By including the convected part of the stress rate, Collins and Wang [4] later derived a semi-analytical similarity solution for cavity expansion in purely frictional soils. The solution of Collins and Wang [4] was, however, obtained from numerical integration as their solution could not be expressed in explicit form. In this article, a rigorous closed-form solution is derived for the expansion of cavities from zero initial radius in cohesive-frictional soils. The solution procedure adopted here follows the Hill incremental velocity method, which is different from that used by Collins andWang [4]. In particular, the plastic radius c is used in this article as the time scale. Unlike the solution of Collins and Wang [4], it is shown that by using a series expansion the similarity solution can be expressed in closed form. © 2003 ASCE.

The bearing behavior of footings on layered soils has received significant attention from researchers, but most of the reported studies are limited to footings resting on the surface of the soil and are based on the assumption of small deformations. In this article, large deformation analyses, simulating the penetration of strip and circular footings into two-layered clays, are described. The upper layer was assumed to be stronger than the lower layer. The importance of large deformation analysis for this problem is illustrated by comparing the small and large deformation predictions. The bearing behavior is discussed and the undrained bearing capacity factors are given for various cases involving different layer thicknesses and different ratios of the undrained shear strengths of the two clay layers. The development of the plastic zones and the effect of soil self-weight on the bearing capacity are also discussed in the article. © 2003 ASCE.

General elastic solutions for tunnel deformations due to a nearby basement excavation are presented for jointed rock masses that contain two orthogonal joint sets. The method used to obtain these solutions involves a boundary element formulation for planar problems in anisotropic elasticity. The numerical solutions presented here allow predictions to be made of the changes in key tunnel dimensions, i.e. measures of the tunnel distortion, as the basement is excavated over a range of depths. Data that is typical for tunnels, basements and rocks in the central business district of Sydney have been used to illustrate the use of these solutions in geotechnical engineering. © 1990.

Unconfined compression tests were carried out on 55mm diameter, cylindrical samples of artificially cemented carbonate soil. The process used to manufacture this artificially cemented carbonate soil is described, and the results of the compression testing are presented. During manufacturing, a stress was applied for a selected duration of time to compact the mixture of carbonate soil, cement and water, and then each sample was left for the cement to cure. The effects of the manufacturing variables (i.e., magnitude of compaction stress, duration of compaction and curing time) and the material variables (i.e., cement and moisture contents and unit weight) on the soil behavior are discussed.

A device has been designed and built to carry out both static and cyclic direct shear tests on specimens of soil and rock and on interfaces of soil and rock and construction materials. The device has the special capability of allowing the shear deformation to proceed under conditions of constant normal stiffness. It is expected that the constant normal stiffness conditions will be more representative of many in-situ conditions of shear deformation; an important example occurs at the interface of a pile and the formation in which it is placed (particularly those piles that are grouted into the formation). When used with a servo-controlled testing machine the device is capable of applying either static or cyclic shear loading to the test specimens utilizing either load or displacement control. The device is described in this paper, and typical results are presented for static and cyclic loading of a variety of interfaces including some that dilate on shearing and others that collapse as they are sheared.

A solution method is presented for the consolidation of a saturated, porous elastic half space due to the pumping of a pore fluid at a constant rate from a point sink embedded beneath the surface. It is assumed that the saturated medium is homogeneous and isotropic with respect to both its elastic and flow properties. The soil skeleton is modelled as an isotropic, linear elastic solid obeying Hooke's Law while the pore fluid is assumed to be compressible with its flow governed by Darcy's Law. The solution has been evaluated for a soil with a value of Poisson's ration of 0.25 and for a number of different cases of pore fluid compressibility. It is demonstrated that this compressibility can have a significant influence on the rate of consolidation around the sink. The solutions presented may have application in practical problems such as the extraction of groundwater and other fluids from compressible geological media. © 1987.

A numerical technique is suggested that allows a prediction of the behaviour of a single phase, strain softening material during the expansion of a long cylindrical cavity. The method provides the entire pressure-expansion relationship, including the identification of the limit pressure at large deformations. The numerical solutions, obtained using the finite element technique and allowing for finite deformations, show very good agreement with closed form answers that are available for a restricted class of material models. Results are also presented for the more general, dilatant (or collapsing), strain softening materials for which closed form solutions do not exist. The importance of the rate of dilation and rate of softening in determining the behaviour during cavity expansion is illustrated. © 1985.

Structured soils exhibit an apparent non-linear normal compression line in the semi-log compression plane, which dominates the difference in the mechanical behaviour between structured soils and their reconstituted counterparts. The effect of soil structure is investigated via the change of compression stiffness with structure degradation. A differential expression of the normal compression line is then established and applied to a large number of different types of soil. Satisfactory results are obtained, illustrating the validity and applicability of the proposed approach. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

Conference of International Association for Computer Methods and Recent Advances in Geomechanics, IACMAG 2014 (2015)

This study outlines the development of a computational scheme which accounts for large deformation dynamic behaviour of saturated porous media and models soil-structure interaction using a high-order frictional contact algorithm. The numerical scheme is employed to analyse a dynamic coupled problem of pipeline-seabed interaction in two steps, including the simulation of the dynamic embedment process as well as the subsequent consolidation stage. The analysis considers a frictional interface between the pipe and the soil which is normally ignored in most analyses due to numerical difficulties. The nonlinear behaviour of the solid constituent is captured by the Modified Cam Clay soil model, allowing the incorporation of shear-induced pore water pressures during the embedment process. The results of this study indicate that the proposed method is able to solve the highly nonlinear problem of dynamic soil-pipe interaction coupled with pore water pressures and Darcy velocity. The results also show that a dynamic approach is necessary for coupled problems of pipe-seabed interaction involving very fast loading. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

This paper addresses the application of high-order elements in the analysis of soil penetration problems, particularly those involving inertia forces and large deformations. Among others, 15-node triangular elements are formulated within an Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian finite element method. Preliminary studies indicate that high-order elements can significantly decrease the analysis time without significant loss of accuracy. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

The plastic anisotropy of reconstituted soft soils is described from the compression behaviour observed during radial loading paths in stress space. A unique relationship is established between the orientation of the yield surface and the corresponding normal compression line, which indicates that a stabilized fabric is maintained under continuous loading along radial stress paths. The equilibrium orientation angle of the plastic potential surface is obtained explicitly. A new rotational hardening law is proposed by considering the dependence of the evolution of anisotropic fabric with the current stress condition and plastic strain. An elastoplastic constitutive model for anisotropic soil is formulated within the framework of Critical State Soil Mechanics. Validation with experimental data and predictions from other models demonstrate the feasibility of the basic concept and the capacity of the proposed new model. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.

This paper examines, using a numerical model based on the finite element method, the undrained bearing capacity of shallow circular footings on son ground improved with deep cement mixing. Guidelines are given to identify the importance of the degree of cementation on the bearing capacity of shallow footings. Using a bearing capacity improvement factor, the influence of the degree of cementaton and the extent of the cemented region on bearing capacity has been investigated. Finally, the performance of deep cement-mixed columns has been investigated using the numerical model. The results indicate that there exists an optimum length to diameter ratio for the deep mixed cement columns and this optimum ratio depends on the degree of cementation of the soil.

The characteristics of vacuum consolidation and the advantages of preloading soft clayey deposits by combining vacuum pressure treatment with embankment loading are discussed. Laboratory oedometer test results show that vacuum pressure induces less or about the same settlement compared to an applied surcharge load of the same magnitude. If the applied vacuum pressure is larger than the lateral stress required to maintain a k

  • condition (no horizontal strain), there will be inward lateral displacement and the vacuum pressure will induce less settlement. In cases where the bottom of the soft clayey deposit is drained (e.g., where the clay overlies a sand or gravel layer), application of a vacuum pressure will cause less consolidation than an equivalent surcharge load because that at the bottom drainage boundary effectively the vacuum pressure can not be applied. For this type of subsoil condition it is suggested that if vacuum consolidation is combined with the use of prefabricated vertical drains (PVDs) for ground improvement, the PVDs should not penetrate the entire clayey layer. An equation for calculating the optimum penetration depth has been derived for this case. The advantages of combining vacuum pressure with embankment loading are discussed in terms of increasing the effective surcharge loading, reducing construction time in the case of road construction, and reducing the preloading-induced lateral displacement of the subsoil.

In this paper attempts have been made to find the effects of sequential loadings on the ultimate uplift capacity of a typical horizontal plate anchor loaded vertically. A series of finite element analyses was performed where the anchor was subjected to different initial loading under undrained conditions followed by consolidation under sustained loading. The anchor was then loaded under undrained conditions up to failure. The anchor is idealised as a circular plate embedded in a homogeneous soil. The soil is represented by the Modified Cam Clay material model with an undrained shear strength varying linearly with depth. No allowance has been made to model break away between the soil and the anchor. The results of the finite element analyses show that if a low value of the initial loading is applied to the anchor under undrained conditions followed by consolidation, the ultimate undrained uplift resistance of the anchor increases. However, for relatively high values of the initial loading the soil fails during the consolidation period. © 2005 Taylor & Francis Group.

This paper examines the undrained bearing capacity of shallow circular foundations on structured soil deposits. Guidelines are given to identify the importance of structural features of the soil when assessing its bearing resistance. Results obtained using a finite element model have been compared with those from existing bearing capacity formulae based largely on plasticity theory. A new bearing capacity equation has been proposed incorporating critical state soil parameters and additional parameters that quantify the effects of soil structure on its mechanical behaviour. © 2005 Taylor & Francis Group.

This paper presents the results of a series of numerical analyses of caisson foundations embedded in a homogeneous soil deforming under undrained conditions. The performance of a typical caisson foundation under separate axial, torsional and lateral forces is investigated, followed by the interaction of these forces with each other. The lateral force is applied at various points along the skirt of the caisson so that the effects of overturning moments are also included in the analyses. The ultimate capacity of the caisson under combined loading is presented in the form of failure envelopes in the axial-lateral, axial-torsional and lateral-torsional loading planes and the axial-lateral-torsional loading space. The results of this study show that although the capacity of the caisson under lateral load depends on the location of the padeye along the caisson skirt, a unique failure envelope, in a non-dimensional form, can be presented for the caisson regardless of the location of the padeye. © 2005 Taylor & Francis Group.

The Sydney Soil Model is formulated within the framework of Critical State Soil Mechanics. In the proposed model, the behaviour of a soil is divided into two parts, that at a reference state and that attributed to the influence of soil structure. The reference state behaviour is formulated according to soil properties at the critical state of deformation based on the concept of plastic volumetric hardening. The influence of soil structure is introduced by formulating the variation of the additional voids ratio, associated with soil structure, for any general stress or strain path. The proposed model is employed to simulate the behaviour of a natural sensitive clay and a dense sand under conventional undrained triaxial tests. It is shown that the model can provide good simulations for the behaviour of structured soils.

This paper presents results of a theoretical investigation of suction caissons installed in seabed deposits composed of dense sand and subjected to inclined uplift loading under fully drained conditions. Consideration is given to the effects of caisson embedment, load application point, load inclination angle, friction angle of the soil, dilatancy and the initial stress state, as defined by the value of K 0. Simplified expressions for the inclined uplift capacity of suction caissons are developed, based on the results of the finite element study.

A general failure criterion for clays is proposed. For intact clays the proposed formula unifies the three identifiable strengths of soils, i.e., peak strength, critical state strength and residual strength, into a single isotropic failure criterion. By the introduction of two new parameters, describing the anisotropy and the degree of fissuring, the criterion may be extended to model the anisotropic strength of fissured clays. The capabilities of the proposed criterion are demonstrated and evaluated by comparing its predictions with experimental data. It is obvious that soils with different structures need different numbers of parameters to define their failure criteria. Indeed, the complexity and accuracy of the criterion can be selected to match the available data.

Cemented and uncemented carbonate sediments are encountered in many offshore regions of Australia and the world. These sediments are biogenic in origin, highly compressible, angular in shape, and usually have high friction angles. This combination of factors can lead to existing empirical methods of analysis for sandy soils giving poor predictions for carbonate soils. To investigate the behaviour of foundations in carbonate soils a new constitutive model has been developed by modifying and generalising the Modified Cam Clay model. In this model the plastic potential function is identical to that for Modified Cam Clay, but the yield function is obtained by scaling down the plastic potential function by a 'spacing ratio'. The spacing ratio is the only additional parameter introduced in this model, and it results in general in a non-associated flow rule. The model has been used to predict the triaxial behaviour of uncemented and artificially cemented carbonate sands, as well as the behaviour of a model footing on cemented carbonate sands. Typical predictions are shown to illustrate the usefulness of the model.

The conventional bearing capacity factor N(¿) generally makes a relatively large contribution to the overall bearing capacity of a frictional material, but no analytic solution has been found for the case of either a fissured or a non-fissured material. An efficient numerical method to evaluate N(¿), based on the method of characteristics, is presented in this paper. The method has been employed to generate new results for materials weakened by the presence of vertical and horizontal fissures or joints. Values of N(¿) have been calculated for a variety of friction angles for the fissures and the matrix material. The accuracy of bearing capacity calculations using these values of N(¿) combined with the conventional Terzaghi bearing capacity equation is discussed.

A limited theoretical investigation has been made of the problem of the bearing capacity of shallow circular footings subjected to inclined loading with no applied moment. The soil has been modelled as a cohesive-frictional (Mohr-Coulomb) material, and predictions of the bearing capacity have been made with a semi-analytical finite element procedure, thus avoiding the need for a full three-dimensional treatment. The investigation has been primarily concerned with the behaviour of foundations on calcareous sediments, and only a limited range of values of the material properties, representative of weakly cemented carbonate soils, has been investigated. The results show that increasing cohesion and friction angle both have significant and similar effects on the bearing capacity and its variation with load angle.

A mature coal mine tailings deposit is typically characterised by a relatively thin, stiff surface crust overlying soft material to the base of the deposit. Such a deposit requires eventual rehabilitation, which is commonly achieved by placing a layer of fill over the surface of the tailings. To simulate rehabilitation, a trial embankment was constructed on the desiccated surface of a tailings deposit in the Ispwich Coalfields of South-Eastern Queensland, Australia. -from Authors

2002Liu MD, Carter JP, 'A structured cam clay model' (2002)

A theoretical study of the behaviour of structured soil is presented. A new model, which is referred to as the Structured Cam Clay model, is formulated by introducing the influence of soil structure into Modified Cam Clay. The proposed model is hierarchical, i.e., it is identical to the Modified Cam Clay soil model if a soil has no structure or if its structure is removed by loading. Three new parameters describing the effects of soil structure are introduced and the results of a parametric study are also presented. The proposed model has been used to predict the behaviour of structured soils in both compression and shearing tests. By making comparisons of predictions with experimental data and by conducting the parametric study it is demonstrated that the new model provides satisfactory qualitative and quantitative modelling of many important features of the behaviour of structured soils.

2001Changxin W, Carter JP, 'Deep penetration of strip and circular footings into layered clays' (2001)

The bearing behaviour of footings on layered soils has received significant attention from researchers, but most of the reported studies are limited to footings resting on the surface of the soil and are based on the assumption of small deformations. In this paper, large deformation analyses, simulating the penetration of strip and circular footings into two-layered clays, are described. The upper layer was assumed to be stronger than the lower layer. The importance of large deformation analysis for this problem is illustrated by comparing the small and large deformation predictions. The bearing behaviour is discussed and the undrained bearing capacity factors are given for various cases involving different layer thicknesses and different ratios of the undrained shear strengths of the two clay layers. The development of the plastic zones and the effect of soil self-weight on the bearing capacity are also discussed in the report.

2001Taiebat HA, Carter JP, 'Three-dimensional non-conforming elements' (2001)

The performance of three-dimensional hexahedral elements has been compared in this study. The standard quadratic 20-noded hexahedral element has shown robust performance in many applications, however, it has a high number of nodes, which necessitates relatively large computational time. The standard linear 8-noded hexahedral element has the least number of nodes in elements of this geometric type, but it is unable to model adequately a state of pure bending. The 8-noded element can be modified by including non-conforming displacements to improve its efficiency. The modified hexahedral element has been adopted in finite element analyses and its excellent performance in terms of accuracy and time efficiency is described.

2000Liu MD, Hull TS, Carter JP, 'Compression behaviour of sands' (2000)

The compression behaviour of sands has been investigated, and it is proposed that a linear relationship between voids ratio, e, and mean effective stress, p', instead of the more widely employed e-lnp' relationship, can best describe this behaviour. A general equation is presented describing the compression behaviour of sands under first loading. The proposed compression equation has been applied to ten different types of sand and one crushed rock with the compression pressures reaching 850 MPa. It is seen that the proposed equation can describe very satisfactorily the behaviour of all these materials. A simplified model for virgin compression loading, unloading and reloading of sands is then formulated. It contains only four material parameters and describes a linear variation between the voids ratio and the compression stress for both virgin yielding and purely elastic behaviour. Based on the comparison between predictions of the model and experimental data, it is seen that the proposed model captures important features of sand behaviour, including the response to cycles of load, and provides a simple, yet realistic, material idealization for constitutive modelling of sand behaviour.

1999Taiebat HA, Carter JP, 'Numerical studies of the bearing capacity of shallow foundations on cohesive soil subjected to combined loading' (1999)

This paper presents the results of three-dimensional finite element analyses of circular foundations resting on the surface of homogeneous, purely cohesive soil. The predicted ultimate response of the foundations to combined vertical, moment, and horizontal loading is compared with other available theoretical predictions. A three-dimensional failure locus is presented for these foundations, based on the numerical predictions. An equation that approximates the shape of the failure locus is also suggested, and this provides a convenient means of calculating the bearing capacity of circular foundations resting on the surface of a uniform clay and subjected to combined loading.

1999Carter JP, Airey DW, Fahey M, 'Review of laboratory testing of calcareous soils' (1999)

This paper presents a review of laboratory testing of calcareous soils. Special attention has been paid to the challenging problems of in situ density determination and laboratory sample preparation. Recently developed techniques for preparing reconstituted samples with relatively high voids ratios, representative of those measured for tube samples of carbonate 'clays' recovered from the field, are described. The review also includes discussion of procedures used to prepare artificially cemented soil specimens, the mechanical behaviour of cemented calcareous sands, as well as some recent findings on the creep of calcareous sediments, the influence of the pore fluid on the response of these materials, and the behaviour of both uncemented and cemented calcareous soils under undrained cyclic loading. Some recent developments in laboratory apparatus and testing techniques are also described.

1999Liu MD, Carter JP, 'General method for defining the number of cycles of repeated loading' (1999)

In geotechnical engineering designs and safety checks, the number of cycles of repeated loading N is frequently used as a parameter for calculating the response of soil structures under the repeated loading. However, there appears to be lack of a rational method for calculating N for repeated loadings along general stress paths. A new method for defining N is proposed in this paper, based on the assumption that a yield surface may be identified for the material. It is demonstrated that the proposed method provides a rational and useful means for engineering calculation of soil deformations under repeated loadings.

1999Deng W, Carter JP, 'Analysis of suction caissons in uniform soils subjected to inclined uplift loading' (1999)

Suction caissons are being used increasingly for the anchorage of large compliant offshore structures. Uplift capacity of the suction caissons under inclined loading is a critical issue in these applications, and reliable methods of predicting the capacity under this form of loading are required in order to produce reliable designs. An extensive theoretical investigation has been carried out of suction caissons in uniform soils subjected to inclined uplift loading for cases where the behaviour of the seabed soil is undrained. A brief review of previous research on the uplift behaviour of suction caisson under uplift loading is included, and results of finite element modelling are presented. The finite element predictions have been validated by existing rigorous solutions obtained independently using the limit analysis technique from the theory of plasticity. A simplified method for the estimation of the uplift capacity for suction caissons is described, based on the results of the finite element study. The failure mechanisms observed in the FE modelling are also discussed. The expressions developed in this paper take into account the influence of the aspect ratio of the caisson, the point of application and angle of inclination of the loading, and the undrained shear strength of the soil.

1999Deng W, Carter JP, 'Predictions of the vertical pullout capacity of suction caissons in fine-grained soils' (1999)

Suction caissons are being used increasingly for the anchorage of large compliant offshore structures. The response of these caissons to vertical pullout loads is a basic and very important issue in these applications. This paper presents the results of a finite element study into the deformation, failure mechanisms and ultimate capacities developed under vertical uplift. Included in the analyses are investigations of the effects of different loading rates and drainage conditions, the effects of the strength properties of the seabed soil and the influence of the caisson aspect ratio on the pullout capacity. The finite element predictions have been verified by comparing them to experimental results. Simplified methods for the estimation of vertical uplift capacity are developed from the results of the numerical study.

1998Wang JC, Booker JR, Carter JP, 'Experimental investigation of contaminant transport in porous media' (1998)

When numerical methods are applied to simulate a real contaminant transport problem, the values of a number of key parameters such as porosity, hydrodynamic dispersion coefficient or dispersivity and Darcy velocity or seepage velocity are needed. Unfortunately, it is usually difficult to determine the hydrodynamic dispersion coefficient in the field because of the complexity of the pore geometry and soil particle size and the natural heterogeneities of the porous media. Experimental testing is the only way to determine the values of these parameters reliably. In this paper, two different experimental programs, involving two types of column test and a well simulation test, were designed to demonstrate that the theory developed to explain contaminant transport in porous media is capable of representing the actual phenomenon of contaminant migration in soil. It is demonstrated that experiments can also be carried out to determine the properties necessary to model a real case of contaminant migration in porous media.

1998Liu MD, Carter JP, 'On the volumetric deformation of reconstituted soils' (1998)

This paper reviews the phenomenon of volumetric hardening, which is a common feature of the mechanical behaviour of many geo-materials. Three different material idealisations have been proposed to describe this hardening, and the paper contains the corresponding mathematical formulation. These idealisations vary in their complexity and hence their ability to capture different aspects of real material behaviour. Any of the three postulates can be implemented into most constitutive models. As a demonstration of their capabilities, the postulates have been implemented into the well known Modified Cam Clay model, and computations are made with the resulting new constitutive models. It is seen that the new models can successfully represent important features of soil behaviour such as plastic yielding associated with loading inside the current virgin yield surface, the loosening or densifying of granular soils caused by shearing, and the accumulation of both volumetric and distortional deformation caused by repeated drained loading over a large number of cycles.

1998Wang JC, Booker JR, Carter JP, 'Analysis of the remediation of a contaminated aquifer by a multi-well system' (1998)

Various numerical techniques have been developed and used to design waste repositories such as landfills, in order to reduce the impact of contamination. However, even with good design, potential contamination such as groundwater contamination may still arise in the future due to unforseen circumstances or negligence. Thus there is a need to seek efficient, cost-effective and carefully designed remediation strategies for the cleanup of contaminated groundwater. This paper presents a study of the remediation of a contaminated aquifer of uniform thickness by multi-well systems, which include both discharge wells and recharge wells. These investigations show that an appropriately designed pump and treat system (PAT) can have a significant effect on the decontamination of a polluted aquifer and can preclude the further spreading of a contaminant plume. However, if the system is not designed appropriately, it may cause a further serious spreading of the contamination. This possibility is illustrated by the examples presented in the paper, which highlight the need for care in the design of remediation strategies.

1997Liu MD, Carter JP, 'Virgin consolidation of structured soils' (1997)

This paper describes a study of the virgin consolidation behaviour of both naturally and artificially structured soils under one-dimensional consolidation or isotropic consolidation. It is proposed that during virgin consolidation, the additional voids ratio sustained by soil structure is inversely proportional to the current mean effective stress. The proposed formula has been verified for twenty different naturally and artificially structured soils, and it is seen that the proposal describes well the behaviour of all these soils. Finally, a general discussion on soil structure and its features is presented, and the proposed consolidation equation is extended to describe the consolidation of structured soil along a general stress path.

1997Xu KJ, Liu MD, Carter JP, Poulos HG, 'Explicit stress-strain equations for geo-materials' (1997)

General and explicit stress-strain equations are proposed, providing a complete stress-strain model for many geo-materials. The model contains only four parameters and the constitutive equations are valid for monotonic shearing. Predictions are made using the proposed equations for the stress-strain behaviour, the peak strength, and the distortional moduli for geo-materials such as clays, sands, clay-silt mixtures, compacted fill materials, and soft rocks. It was found that the proposed equations describe very satisfactorily the behaviour of many types of soils and soft rocks.

1994Xiao B, Carter JP, Alehossein H, 'Elastoplastic analysis of jointed rocks using a coupled finite element and boundary element method' (1994)

This paper presents a coupled, elastoplastic, finite element and boundary element method for the two-dimensional, non-linear analysis of anisotropic jointed rock. The non-linear and anisotropic behaviour of a jointed rock mass is simulated by representing the mass as an equivalent anisotropic, elastoplastic continuum, so that the influence of the jointing system is 'smeared' across the continuum, i.e. the individual joints are not modelled as discrete entities. Numerical examples have been solved to verify the capability, accuracy and efficiency of the present technique. The proposed technique has also been applied to the analysis of tunnel excavation problems in plane strain. The effects of anisotropy and non-linearity of the jointed rock mass during excavation have been investigated in some detail.

1993Carter JP, Xiao B, '2-D coupled finite element and boundary element scheme to simulate the elastic behaviour of jointed rocks' (1993)

In this paper a coupled finite and boundary element formulation is developed for the analysis of excavation in jointed rock. The presence of joints in the rock mass has been included implicitly by treating it as an appropriate anisotropic elastic continuum. The boundary element formulation for an anisotropic medium is briefly discussed. Good agreement has been found between numerical and analytical solutions for several example problems demonstrating the accuracy of the present formulation. Numerical solutions are also presented for the problems of a deep circular tunnel and a basement excavated in a variety of jointed rock masses.

1992Ghafoori M, Mastropasqua M, Carter JP, Airey DW, 'Engineering properties of Ashfield shale' (1992)

This paper presents some previously unpublished test data on the engineering properties of Ashfield shale and investigates the relationships between them. Also included is an examination of the important influence of moisture content and the degree of weathering on the mechanical properties, particularly the strength. The present findings are compared with the results of previous studies on the mechanical properties of these shales.

1985Booker JR, Carter JP, Small JC, 'PREDICTION OF SUBSIDENCE CAUSED BY PUMPING OF GROUNDWATER.' (1985)

Solutions are presented for the effect of pumping of groundwater on the settlement of the ground surface. These solutions cover the cases of pumping from a point sink in homogeneous, non-homogeneous, isotropic and transversely isotropic, elastic soil deposits. In all cases it is assumed that the soil skeleton is elastic, pore fluid flow obeys Darcy's law and that the water table always remains at the ground surface. These solutions should allow predictions to be made of time dependent and long term (steady state) settlements for many practical problems involving groundwater pumping.

1985Carter JP, Booker JR, 'THERMOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS OF SOME PROPOSED SCHEMES FOR RADIOACTIVE WASTE DISPOSAL.' (1985)

Solutions are presented for the steady state, thermomechanical response of an elastic half space containing either a vertical line source or a horizontal disc shaped source of heat. It is suggested that these solutions may be useful for predicting the long term behaviour of rock masses containing nuclear waste repositories; the solution for the line source being appropriate for the disposal of hot wastes in deep boreholes and the solution for the disc shaped source being applicable to disposal in underground galleries of significant lateral extent. It is demonstrated that in both cases the surface of the rock mass will heave and that there is potential for cracking of the rock overlying the repositories because of tensile stress changes induced in the region near the surface.
