Postshaking Shear Strain Localization in a Centrifuge Model of a Saturated Sand Slope
This paper presents analyses of a test conducted on a 9-m-radius centrifuge to study the redistribution of pore water during diffusion of earthquake-induced excess pore pressures in a sand slope withExpand

Shear Localization Due to Liquefaction-Induced Void Redistribution in a Layered Infinite Slope
A new approach for estimating the susceptibility of a layered, liquefiable, infinite slope to shear deformations associated with void redistribution is presented. The excess pore water pressuresExpand

Physical and Numerical Modeling of Nonlinear Cyclic Load-Deformation Behavior of Shallow Foundations Supporting Rocking Shear Walls
A shear wall supported by a shallow foundation system is a commonly used seismic-force-resisting structural building system, yet there are many unresolved issues regarding their design andExpand

Contraction, Dilation, and Failure of Sand in Triaxial, Torsional, and Rotational Shear Tests
The response of a saturated fine sand (Nevada sand No. 120) with relative density Dr ≈70% in drained and undrained conventional triaxial compression and extension tests and undrained cyclic shearExpand

Static and seismic stability of sensitive clay slopes
Abstract Many sensitive clay slopes exist that have a factor of safety greater than one based on the peak strength, and a factor of safety less than one based on the remolded strength. Obviously, itExpand

Soil-Pile-Superstructure Interaction in Liquefiable Sand
Soil-pile-superstructure interaction in liquefiable sand is evaluated using dynamic centrifuge model tests and pseudostatic p-y analyses. Select recordings from a recent centrifuge test are presentedExpand
