In this paper, predictions of pile settlement determined by appropriate superposition of two-pile interaction factors are compared with those computed from continuum analysis. A finite-element… (More)
Abstract There is currently no published guidance on the excavatability of Irish rock for microtunnelling applications. In this paper, new data and experiences of microtunnelling through rock (using… (More)
The development and growth of urban environments in recent years is requiring geotechnical engineers to consider foundation reuse as a more sustainable solution to inner city redevelopment. Two main… (More)
This paper describes a full-scale laboratory study of the axial sliding behaviour of a trenched pipeline surrounded by sand backfill. Cyclic axial displacements are applied to a heavy pipe buried i...
Abstract In recent years, there has been an increased resort to microtunnelling/pipe-jacking as a means of constructing underground conduits (for water, sewage, gas, and other utilities) to avoid… (More)
The settlement behaviour of vertically loaded pile groups has been the subject of an extensive body of research over the past two decades. In particular, this work has identified the over-conservat...
AbstractOcean energy converters (OECs) are becoming a more popular source of electricity generated from the ocean. The main obstacle associated with the use of OECs is their high initial installation… (More)
AbstractIn this study, finite-element (FE) modeling was used to examine the influence of biaxial lateral loading of a monopile foundation. Two different soil models were adopted to investigate the… (More)
