This study proposes an innovative mathematical formula that uses multigene Genetic Programming (GP), a recently developed soft computing technique, to predict the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations on cohesionless soils. The real performance of previously developed approaches is also investigated. The multigene GP-based formula was calibrated(More)
Many hydrocarbon reservoirs are located near oceans which are covered by calcareous deposits. These sediments consist mainly of the remains of marine plants or animals, so calcareous soils can have a wide variety of engineering properties. Due to their local expansion and considerable differences from terrigenous soils, the evaluation of engineering(More)
Due to the heterogeneous nature of granular soils and the involvement of many effective parameters in the geotechnical behavior of soil-foundation systems, the accurate prediction of shallow foundation settlements on cohesionless soils is a complex engineering problem. In this study, three new evolutionary-based techniques, including evolutionary polynomial(More)
Geotechnical centrifuges can simulate the behavior of soil material, with a high accuracy. One of the main aspects of centrifuge tests is sample monitoring during the test. Picture transfer is a useful way of gaining data from the sample. In this study, a vertical nailed slope was tested. Its side wall is meshed by target points and lines. The displacements(More)
Calcareous sediments are located in temperate and tropical areas near offshore hydrocarbon industries and petrochemical reserves such as the Persian Gulf of Iran. These sediments have complicated physical properties which make them completely different from silicate soils. Carbonate sediments are mainly formed by the skeletal remains of marine organisms.(More)
