A foundation for success

With revered researchers such as Laureate Professor Scott Sloan and Professor John Carter leading the way, geotechnical engineering at the University of Newcastle is on solid ground.

Most drivers on the Pacific Highway would give little thought to the towering embankments that line the newly upgraded sections of the road along the NSW North Coast, but to engineers they represent a significant accomplishment.

As University of Newcastle Laureate Professor Scott Sloan explains, some of the embankments stand on soil that is very unstable and pose major engineering problems.

"Stepping onto coastal soft  soils, you can sometimes sink to your knees," says Sloan, a geotechnical engineer and internationally recognised expert in soil stability analysis. "It is a massive engineering challenge to build major infrastructure on this type of foundation, in reasonable time and at reasonable cost."

The problem is typical of the troubleshooting nature of geotechnical engineering, which focuses on predicting the behaviour of earth materials to ensure stability for buildings and infrastructure.

Under Sloan's leadership, the University has long been a leader in computational modelling in the field. His development of faster and more efficient methods of calculating the load capacity for buildings and structures has drawn acclaim from around the world. User-friendly software developed by Sloan is set for international commercial release next year through Newcastle Innovation, the University's commercial arm.

Sloan is the director of the University's Centre for Geotechnical and Materials Modelling and also leads the new Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Geotechnical Science and Engineering. With funding of $14.4 million over seven years, the collaborative Centre for Excellence will specialise in developing new and improved tools for designing energy and transport infrastructure in a cost-effective manner.

The Centre combines the theoretical and computational strengths of the Newcastle research centre; the University of Wollongong's knowledge in below-track rail infrastructure; and the offshore expertise and experimental capabilities of the University of Western Australia, which has Australia's only geotechnical centrifuge modelling facility.

The collaboration represents a professional reunion of sorts for Sloan and his colleagues Professor John Carter, Newcastle's Pro Vice-Chancellor of Engineering and Built Environment, and Professor Mark Randolph, the former head of the University of Western Australia's Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems. All were researchers at Cambridge 30 years ago and each has gone on to build a distinguished academic and research career. The three are among the select few engineers who have been made Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science.

One of the initial joint projects under the ARC Centre for Excellence program will be the establishment of Australia's first national soft soil test site, near Ballina, on the NSW North Coast. Working with the Roads and Traffic Authority and industry partners, researchers will explore stability problems that have been experienced during the $5.0 billion Pacific Highway upgrade.Laureate Professor Scott Sloan standing against a railing while a car passes

"This represents a significant challenge for engineers today because much of the east coast of Australia has problematic soft soils. Stable land along the coast is becoming increasingly scarce, forcing major transport and energy infrastructure projects onto marginal land where the soil can be very soft," Sloan says.

The ARC Centre for Excellence will also direct its research to safety analysis of offshore oil and gas developments on soft sea floors, an area in which Carter and colleagues from the University of Western Australia have significant expertise. For example, Carter has worked across the globe, from the oil platforms in the North Sea and to those on Australia's North West Shelf, and has consulted for BHP, Esso, Woodside Wapet, Bond Oil, Amoco and Exxon.

Some of his most challenging work was on the North Rankin A and Goodwyn platforms off Western Australia in the 1980s. Those early offshore projects in Australia were problematic, Carter explains, largely because the properties of the soft carbonate soils on the seabed were not well understood. Remediation work on the platforms ended up costing more than $500 million. However, as with most first-time projects, it proved to be a great learning ground for researchers and project engineers.

"It is often the case in engineering that you learn most when something goes wrong," Carter says.

Carter and Sloan are accomplished computational engineers whose mathematical models have been widely adopted into engineering practice. Both have received broad recognition from within their profession and beyond. Carter, named last year one of Australia's 100 most influential engineers, was particularly proud and humbled when he received an Order of Australia in 2006. Sloan nominates being invited to give this year's Rankine Lecture in England, one of the most prestigious honours in geotechnics, as a career highlight.

Both Sloan and Carter are enthusiastic advocates of the cross-disciplinary nature of research groups such as the research centre and Centre for Excellence.

"On any research project you will have a lot of people who work on the fringes," Carter says. "These centres encourage researchers from different disciplines to come together and allow for the better exchange of ideas and expertise between departments and institutions."

Sloan says the ARC Centre for Excellence adds to the already solid reputation of the University of Newcastle in geotechnical engineering.

"The geotechnical research group at this University is arguably the strongest in the country and one of the strongest internationally," he says.

"People want to come here to do their research.  It has become a destination for the brightest and best in the world."

2015Cai Q, Turner BD, Sheng D, Sloan S, 'The kinetics of fluoride sorption by zeolite: Effects of cadmium, barium and manganese', Journal of Contaminant Hydrology, 177-178 136-147 (2015)

Industrial wastewaters often consist of a complex chemical cocktail with treatment of target contaminants complicated by adverse chemical reactions. The impact of metal ions (Cd2 +, Ba2 + and Mn2 +) on the kinetics of fluoride removal from solution by natural zeolite was investigated. In order to better understand the kinetics, the pseudo-second order (PSO), Hill (Hill 4 and Hill 5) and intra-particle diffusion (IPD) models were applied. Model fitting was compared using the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) and the Schwarz Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC). The Hill models (Hill 4 and Hill 5) were found to be superior in describing the fluoride removal processes due to the sigmoidal nature of the kinetics. Results indicate that the presence of Mn (100 mg L- 1) and Cd (100 mg L- 1) respectively increases the rate of fluoride sorption by a factor of ~ 28.3 and ~ 10.9, the maximum sorption capacity is increased by ~ 2.2 and ~ 1.7. The presence of Ba (100 mg L- 1) initially inhibited fluoride removal and very poor fits were obtained for all models. Fitting was best described with a biphasic sigmoidal model with the degree of inhibition decreasing with increasing temperature suggesting that at least two processes are involved with fluoride sorption onto natural zeolite in the presence of Ba.

2015Lu M, Wang S, Sloan SW, Sheng D, Xie K, 'Nonlinear consolidation of vertical drains with coupled radial-vertical flow considering well resistance', Geotextiles and Geomembranes, 43 182-189 (2015)

The consolidation behavior of ground with vertical drains is known to be greatly affected by the finite permeability of the sand drains, also called the effect of well resistance. However, up to now, no analytical methods have been reported for evaluating this effect on the nonlinear consolidation behavior of vertical drains. In this paper, by considering the nonlinear compressibility and permeability of soil during consolidation, the effect of well resistance was incorporated into the derivation of the equations that govern the nonlinear consolidation of a vertical drain with coupled radial-vertical flow. In addition, the smear effect was considered by assuming three decay patterns for the radial permeability coefficients of the soil toward the sand drain in the smeared zone. After obtaining the governing equations, a simplified analytical solution is derived for a general time-variable surcharge loading. Based on the general solution obtained, detailed solutions are provided for three special types of loading schemes: constant loading, single-stage loading, and multi-stage loading. The validity of the solution is verified by reducing it to several special cases and comparing these to existing solutions. Finally, the effect of the well resistance, the ratios of the compression index to the radial and vertical permeability indices, various loading schemes, and various variation patterns of the radial permeability coefficient of the soil in the smeared soil zone are investigated using parametric analysis.

2015Ding Y, Huang W, Sheng D, Sloan SW, 'Numerical study on finite element implementation of hypoplastic models', Computers and Geotechnics, 68 78-90 (2015)

A comprehensive numerical study on finite element implementation of hypoplastic models is presented. Two crucial aspects, local integration of the constitutive equations (the local problem) and forming tangent operators for Newton-Raphson iteration (the global problem), are investigated. For solving the local problem, different integration algorithms, including explicit and implicit methods, are examined using tri-axial compression tests and incremental stress response envelopes, as well as typical boundary value problems. For solving global problems, three different ways of generating the tangent operator are compared. The numerical evidences indicate that, in terms of accuracy, efficiency and robustness, explicit methods with substepping and error control are the best choices for constitutive integration of hypoplastic models while the so-called continuum tangent operators have certain advantages over two other types of numerically-generated consistent tangent operators.

The first part of the paper presents a material point method solution for the bearing capacity of a deep foundation in purely cohesive soil, which is a widely known engineering problem. The results computed with the generalised interpolation material point method are compared to the results obtained previously with an advanced limit analysis code. The second part of the paper shows material point method simulations of collapsing piles of granular material and compares the results with experimental observations from the literature. The problems considered are problematic to solve using the displacement finite element method as they generally include very large deformations.

Experimental studies and numerical modelling of the deformation of soft clay stabilised by stone columns have been conducted over the past few decades. Continuum-based numerical models have provided valuable insight into the prediction of settlement, lateral deformation, and stress and strain-rate dependent behaviour of stone columns at a macroscopic scale, but because they consist of granular material such as crushed rock, gravel, and waste rock aggregates, their behaviour is influenced by inter-particle micromechanics and cannot be modelled properly using these models. In this paper a novel coupled model of the discrete element method (DEM) and finite difference method (FDM) is presented to study the deformation of a single stone column installed in soft ground. In this coupled discrete-continuum method, PFC2D and FLAC were used to model the interaction between the stone column and surrounding clay, respectively. The contact forces at the interface between the two zones were determined through a socket connection that allows the DEM to transfer forces and moments to the FDM and vice versa. The predicted results were comparable to the data measured experimentally, showing that the coupled discrete-continuum model proposed in this study could simulate the load-deformation behaviour of a stone column installed in clay. The contact force distribution and shear stress contour developed in the stone column and surrounding clay were captured to provide a better understanding of the load-deformation behaviour of the stone column.

2015Huang J, Kelly R, Sloan SW, 'Stochastic assessment for the behaviour of systems of dry soil mix columns', Computers and Geotechnics, 66 75-84 (2015)

The mechanical properties of dry soil mix (DSM) columns can be highly variable. Variability can be accounted for in the construction specification for deterministic design and directly in reliability based design. Design methods and specifications to date adopt simplifications that do not take the variability of the columns fully into account. This paper uses both simple and advanced probabilistic methods to assess the performance/failure and system redundancy of dry soil mix columns. Reliability-based design methods and examples are given for the design of column strength and the adjustment of the column spacing to achieve a target probability of unacceptable performance or failure. An acceptance criteria chart is developed. The pull-out resistance tests on the DSM columns constructed for the Ballina Bypass motorway construction project in NSW Australia are compared to the chart to provide guidance with respect to acceptance criteria required to achieve the desired performance.

By incorporating the nonlinear variation of a soil's compressibility and permeability during the process of consolidation, an analytical solution for the radial consolidation of vertical drains has been developed for a general time-variable loading. The general solution was verified for the cases of instantaneous loading and ramp loading. Detailed solutions were further derived for two special loading schemes: multistage loading and preloading-unloading-reloading. The nonlinear consolidation behavior of a vertical drain subjected to these two types of loading schemes was then investigated by a parametric study. The results show that the loading rate, the ratio of the compressibility index to the permeability index (Cc/Ck), and the initial stress state have a significant influence on the consolidation rate. A smaller value of Cc/Ck, a larger initial stress, or a fast loading rate always leads to a rapid consolidation rate. During the unloading period, a negative excess pore water pressure may occur, and a slower unloading rate may reduce this negative value.

2015Wilson DW, Abbo AJ, Sloan SW, Lyamin AV, 'Undrained stability of dual square tunnels', Acta Geotechnica, (2015)

In this paper, finite element limit analysis (FELA) and semi-analytical rigid block techniques are used to investigate the influence of tunnel spacing on the undrained stability of two unlined square tunnels constructed side by side. The tunnels, which are assumed to be straight and infinitely long, are modelled under conditions of plane strain. Upper and lower bounds on the stability of the tunnels are obtained using FELA; the numerical formulation of which is based upon the bounds theorems of classical plasticity. These bounds, which bracket the true collapse load from above and below, are found to be in good agreement with one another. Rigid block methods also provided an upper bound estimate on tunnel stability which was generally higher than, but still in good agreement with, the FELA upper bound. Failure mechanisms associated with the collapse of the dual tunnels were investigated, and for deeper tunnels, it was found that mechanisms extend much deeper below the tunnels than the collapse mechanisms associated with a single tunnel. Results from this study are summarised in dimensionless stability charts for use by practitioners.

2015Zhang X, Sheng D, Kouretzis GP, Krabbenhoft K, Sloan SW, 'Numerical investigation of the cylinder movement in granular matter', Physical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics, 91 (2015)

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.

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.

In practical geotechnical engineering the factor of safety is still determined by means of simple limit equilibrium analysis in many cases. However, because displacement finite-element analysis is routinely applied for assessing displacements and stresses for working load conditions, this technique is increasingly being used to calculate ultimate limit states and, consequently, factors of safety, usually by means of the so-called strength reduction technique, and results which are comparable to those obtained with limit equilibrium methods have been reported in the literature. However, owing to the inherent assumptions of limit equilibrium analyses, they do not always provide unique factors of safety. The purpose of this paper is on the one hand to compare the strength reduction method with rigorous limit analyses which are based on collapse theorems of plasticity, and on the other hand to investigate if a shortcoming of the strength reduction method, namely possible numerical instabilities for non-associated plasticity, can be overcome. Two examples are considered, namely slope stability and tunnel face stability. Finally an important note on the definition of the factor of safety for effective and total stress analysis under undrained conditions is provided.

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.

2015Huang W, Huang L, Sheng D, Sloan SW, 'DEM modelling of shear localization in a plane Couette shear test of granular materials', Acta Geotechnica, 10 389-397 (2015)

This paper presents a numerical study of shear localization in granular materials based on a discrete element method. The plane Couette shear test is proposed for this purpose. A numerical model is established to simulate the test. With the flexible side boundaries, it is demonstrated that the plane Couette shear state can be achieved within a granular sample of limited length, and a shear band parallel to the shear direction can be obtained. Numerical results are also presented to show the formation and the development of the shear band. A homogenization procedure is employed for presenting the variation of the field variables such as stress components, the couple stress, the void ratio and the grain rotation. The evolution and the spatial distribution of these quantities are qualitatively in accordance with the Cosserat continuum model predictions. The numerical results also indicate that the Cosserat effect plays a vital role in shear localization zone.

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.

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.

The consolidation behavior of ground with vertical drains is known to be greatly affected by the finite permeability of the sand drains, also called the effect of well resistance. However, up to now, no analytical methods have been reported for evaluating this effect on the nonlinear consolidation behavior of vertical drains. In this paper, by considering the nonlinear compressibility and permeability of soil during consolidation, the effect of well resistance was incorporated into the derivation of the equations that govern the nonlinear consolidation of a vertical drain with coupled radial-vertical flow. In addition, the smear effect was considered by assuming three decay patterns for the radial permeability coefficients of the soil toward the sand drain in the smeared zone. After obtaining the governing equations, a simplified analytical solution is derived for a general time-variable surcharge loading. Based on the general solution obtained, detailed solutions are provided for three special types of loading schemes: constant loading, single-stage loading, and multi-stage loading. The validity of the solution is verified by reducing it to several special cases and comparing these to existing solutions. Finally, the effect of the well resistance, the ratios of the compression index to the radial and vertical permeability indices, various loading schemes, and various variation patterns of the radial permeability coefficient of the soil in the smeared soil zone are investigated using parametric analysis.

Rail tracks undergo degradation owing to particle breakage and fouling of ballast by various fines including coal and subgrade soil. As the ballast becomes fouled, its strength and drainage capacity are compromised, sometimes resulting in differential settlement and reduced track stability. This paper demonstrates a continuum mechanics based framework to evaluate the detrimental effect of fines on the strength, deformation and degradation of coal-fouled ballast under monotonic loading. An elastoplastic constitutive model that considers the effect of fines content and energy consumption associated with particle breakage during shearing is presented. This multiphase constitutive model is developed within a critical state framework based on a kinematic-type yield locus and a modified stress-dilatancy approach. A general formulation for the rate of ballast breakage and coal particle breakage during triaxial shearing is presented and incorporated into the plastic flow rule to accurately predict the stress-strain response of coal-fouled ballast at various confining pressures. The behaviour of ballast at various levels of fouling is analysed and validated by experimental data. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

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 observational method is one of the most successful processes in geotechnical engineering. Performance monitoring data are the most reliable information that engineers can use to predict future performance of geotechnical projects. This paper presents two examples where Bayesian statistical methods can be used for the prediction of future performance. The first example is to update the capacity of piles using load test results. The second example is to update embankment settlement predictions when field settlement monitoring data are available.

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.

Economic growth in Australia and the rest of the world is linked to the scale of construction and mining, and the amount of earth moved each year in these operations is difficult to fathom. When distributed evenly across the world's population, each individual moves several tonnes of earth each year. This paper highlights current and future research initiatives within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Geotechnical Science and Engineering (CGSE) aimed at developing rigorous, mechanics-based models for fundamental ploughing and cutting processes in soils. State-of-the-art physical modelling is integrated with the development of new techniques for analytical and numerical modelling to elucidate and predict the full progression of forces and deformations in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional processes. A new analytical model for cutting in dry sand is presented, and preliminary results from numerical and physical modelling are described. The analyses reveal effects that available models fail to consider and illustrate how the development of rigorous models may facilitate improvements in production and efficiency in earthmoving operations.

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.

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.

The diametrical compression of a circular disc (Brazilian test) or cylinder with a small eccentric hole is a simple but important test to determine the tensile strength of rocks. This paper studies the failure mechanism of circular disc with an eccentric hole by a 3D numerical model (RFPA3D). A feature of the code RFPA3D is that it can numerically simulate the evolution of cracks in three-dimensional space, as well as the heterogeneity of the rock mass. First, numerically simulated Brazilian tests are compared with experimental results. Special attention is given to the effect of the thickness to radius ratio on the failure modes and the peak stress of specimens. The effects of the compressive strength to tensile strength ratio (C/T), the loading arc angle (2a), and the homogeneity index (m) are also studied in the numerical simulations. Secondly, the failure process of a rock disc with a central hole is studied. The effects of the ratio of the internal hole radius (r) to the radius of the rock disc (R) on the failure mode and the peak stress are investigated. Thirdly, the influence of the vertical and horizontal eccentricity of an internal hole on the initiation and propagation of cracks inside a specimen are simulated. The effect of the radius of the eccentric hole and the homogeneity index (m) are also investigated.

Free-drift batch reactor experiments using calcite (limestone, CaCO 3) were used to study fluoride removal through precipitation as fluorite (CaF2) from solutions with concentrations reflective of an industrially contaminated site. The influence of CO2 partial pressure (pCO2), stirring rate, and fluoride concentration were investigated in this paper. Equilibrium modeling shows that in wastewaters with high fluoride concentrations (~2,000 mg/L), the flux of CO2(g) to CO 2(aq) could not keep up with the consumption of CO2(aq), resulting in an initial disequilibrium with experimental pH reaching equilibrium quickly, while fluoride removal lagged. Increasing stirring rate significantly decreased the extent of disequilibrium and the time at which the CaCO 3-fluoride-CO2 system attained equilibrium due to the increased rate of transport of dissolved CO2 to the CaCO3 surface, and simultaneously the rate of transport of the dissolved CaCO 3 to the bulk solution. Optimal fluoride removal occurs at pCO 2~10-0.52 [30% (mol% CO2)] with 96% of the initial 2,000 mg/L fluoride load removed in less than 80 min with a stirring rate of 300 revolutions per minute. Increasing pCO2 to ~100 (100% CO 2) resulted in very little gain, less than 2%, in fluoride removal, or in the time required to reach equilibrium and therefore significant remediation cost savings can be obtained by using pCO2 30% when compared to 100%. © 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers.

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.

Based on a micropolar (Cosserat) continuum model, the formation of shear localization in granular materials is studied analytically and numerically. The possibility of shear localization in a uniformly deforming granular body is studied as a bifurcation problem. The analysis shows that shear bifurcation on the constitutive model level is suppressed in a micropolar continuum approach. Numerical studies are presented to show that the development of shear localization is a result of initial imperfection which exists inevitably in granular bodies. © Institute of Materials Engineering Australasia Ltd 2005.

In this paper, fundamental mathematical concepts for modeling the dissipative behavior of geomaterials are recalled. These concepts are illustrated on two basic models and applied to derive a new form of the evolution law of the modified Cam-clay model. The aim is to discuss the mathematical structure of the constitutive relationships and its consequences on the structural level. It is recalled that non-differentiable potentials provide an appropriate means of modeling rate-independent behavior. The Cam-clay model is revisited and a standard version is presented. It is seen that this standard version is non-dissipative, which at the same time explains why a non-standard version is needed. The partial normality is exploited and an implicit variational formulation of the modified Cam-clay model is derived. As a result, the solution of boundary-value problems can be replaced by seeking stationary points of a functional. © 2005 Springer.

2005Huang W, Hjiaj M, Sloan SW, 'Bifurcation analysis for shear localization in non-polar and micro-polar hypoplastic continua 167-184 (2005)

In this paper, shear localization in granular materials is studied as a bifurcation problem based on a conventional (non-polar) and a micro-polar continuum description. General bifurcation conditions are formulated for a non-polar hypoplastic model and its micro-polar continuum extension. These conditions de.ne stress, couple stress and density states at which weak discontinuity bifurcation may occur. The stress states for bifurcation are then compared with the peak stress states, which define a bounding surface for the accessible stress domain in the principal stress space. The results show that, in a micro-polar continuum description, the constitutive model may no longer be associated with weak discontinuity bifurcation. © 2005 Springer.

1994Yu HS, Sloan SW, Kleeman PW, 'Quadratic element for upper bound limit analysis', Engineering computations, 11 195-212 (1994)

This paper presents a new finite element formulation of the upper bound theorem. The formulation uses a six-noded linear strain triangular element. Each node has two unknown velocities and each corner of a triangle is associated with a specified number of unknown plastic multiplier rates. The major advantage of using a linear strain element, rather than a constant strain element, is that the velocity field can be modelled more accurately. In addition, the incompressibility condition can be easily satisfied without resorting to special arrangements of elements in the mesh. The formulation permits kinematically admissible velocity discontinuities at specified locations within the finite element mesh. To ensure that finite element formulation of the upper bound theorem leads to a linear programming problem, the yield criterion is expressed as a linear function of the stresses. The linearized yield surface is defined to circumscribe the parent yield surface so that the solution obtained is a rigorous upper bound. During the solution phase, an active set algorithm is used to solve the resulting linear programming problem. Several numerical examples are given to illustrate the capability of the new procedure for computing rigorous upper bounds. The efficiency and accuracy of the quadratic formulation is compared with that of the 3-noded constant strain formulation in detail.

This paper examines the undrained stability of a shallow square tunnel in a soil whose strength increases linearly with depth. Rigorous bounds on the loads needed to resist collapse are derived using two numerical techniques which are based on finite element formulations of the classical limit theorems. Both of the numerical procedures assume a linearized perfectly plastic soil model and require the solution of large sparse linear programming problems. For the range of tunnel geometries considered, the numerical results bracket the exact collapse loads closely. The solutions are presented in the form of stability charts which can be used by practising engineers for the purposes of design. © 1991.

1984Houlsby GT, Sloan SW, 'Technical note: Efficient sorting routines in FORTRAN 77', Advances in Engineering Software (1978), 6 198-203 (1984)

A problem faced which arises in many computing applications is that of sorting the entries in a list into ascending sequence of their values. Efficient algorithms for sorting long lists usually require recursive techniques and are not straightforward to program in a non-recursive language such as FORTRAN 77. This paper describes three FORTRAN 77 implementations of the insertion sort, quicksort and modified quicksort algorithms. The first algorithm is suitable for short lists whilst the second two are suitable for longer lists. A detailed description of the removal of recursion from the quicksort algorithm by the use of stacks is presented. All of the implementations are believed to be efficient, and should prove useful in engineering applications. Some timing statistics are given to illustrate the utility of the subroutines presented. © 1984.

A FORTRAN 77 implementation of Watson's algorithm for computing two-dimensional Delaunay triangulations is described. The algorithm is shown to have an asymptotic time complexity bound which is better than O(N1.5) by applying it to collections of N points generated randomly within the unit square. The computer code obeys strict FORTRAN 77 syntax. Excluding the memory needed to store the co-ordinates of the points, it requires slightly greater than 9N integer words of memory to assemble and store the Delaunay triangulation. © 1984.

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

Discontinuity Layout Optimization (DLO) (Smith & Gilbert 2007) is an upper bound limit analysis technique for modeling the stability of geotechnical problems. Meshes used for DLO are typically generated by interconnecting a set of nodes (n) located at regular grid points within a domain. A regular grid allows the required mesh topology to be generated in approximately O(n 2) time by searching for pairs of integer coordinates with unity as their greatest common divisor. This technique avoids impractical O(n 3) worst case mesh generation times, but produces a non-optimal discretization. Using the concept of point-line duality, a procedure for assembling meshes on a non-uniform cloud of nodes in O(n2) time is proposed. The flexibility afforded by this newmethod is used to adaptively refine a DLO mesh by adding nodes in regions with the greatest estimated error. The effectiveness of this procedure is demonstrated by analyzing the stability of a strip footing on a Mohr-Coulomb soil. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

Finite element limit analysis and rigid block upper bound methods are used to investigate the undrained stability of tall rectangular and horseshoe shaped tunnels.A parametric study, that considered a range of soil properties and tunnel geometries, was performed to study the stability of tunnels which are taller than they are wide. Rigorous upper and lower solutions for the tunnel stability, which bracket the true solution, are found using Finite Element Limit Analysis. This finite element technique implements a discrete form of the bound theorems of classical plasticity by employing adaptive meshing and a bespoke conic programming scheme to solve the resulting optimisation problem. The computed bounds on stability generally bracket the true collapse load to within 2% and are presented as a series of stability charts suitable for practical use. © 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.

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

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.

The paper presents a number of numerical simulations of triaxial shear tests. The simulations have been made with the Generalised Interpolation Material Point method (GIMP, Bardenhagen & Kober 2004), which allows for modelling of large displacements, such as those occurring in shear bands. The simulations are assessed qualitatively and compared with available numerical results. Unconstrained compression tests on unsaturated soil specimens are also simulated. In all the analyses, the Mohr-Coulomb model, extended into the unsaturated regime, was used. The paper is part of a joint research program in the Centre for Geotechnical Science and Engineering which aims to assess and to validate the material point method for engineering purposes. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

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

This work consists of a preliminary numerical study on the impact behaviour of rock blocks on muckpiles using the Discrete Element Method (DEM). A contact law using a linear hysteresis model for normal contacts and a Mohr-Coulomb model for tangential contacts is used. In addition, two dissipative laws are introduced consisting of a moment transfer law and normal viscous damping law. One of the aims of this study is to investigate if the contact law enables a realistic modelling of the rebound characteristics of a block during impact on a muckpile. A parametric study is carried out in order to investigate the influence of the constitutive model parameters and the presence of clumps. Numerical predictions are compared to experimental results.

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.

Analytical probabilistic analysis and Monte Carlo simulation based on elasto-plastic Finite Element Method (FEM) on dry soil mix columns are presented. It is shown that analytical method is over conservative because it ignores the supports from adjacent columns. Probabilistic FEM analysis can provide more accurate predictions, and thus lead to more economic designs. Probabilistic FEM analyses show that the effects of adjacent columns can be destructive when applied load is close to the strength. The reliability of the system of columns is analyzed by setting residual strength to zero. Results show that close spacing has more safety margin than loose spacing. © 2014 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

This paper presents a discrete modelling approach which allows the simulation of rockfalls behind drapery systems. The falling rock is represented by a rigid assembly of spheres whereas the slope is represented by triangular elements. Energy dissipation during impact on the slope is considered via friction and viscous damping. The drapery is represented by a set of spherical particles which interact remotely. The numerical model is used to investigate the efficiency of a drapery system. Various simulations with two different block sizes are performed and the numerical predictions of simulations with drapery are compared to simulations without drapery in order to assess the performance of the protection system.
