Abstract In the history of human civilization, rammed earth has been used over thousand years to construct infrastructure, such as buildings, shelters, and defense structures. The structural
Passive Earth Pressures on Retaining Walls for Pit-in-Pit Excavations
TLDR
This paper presents a simplified approach for computing passive earth pressures for pit-in-pit excavations, and a parametric study is conducted to demonstrate that the mobilized passive earth pressure increases nonlinearly with the magnitude of wall movement and soil shear strength parameters.
Spatial Variability of Health Inequalities of Older People in China and Related Health Factors
TLDR
The uneven spatial distribution of socio-economic status results in health inequalities for older people at the national level in China, and the geographic distribution of life expectancy was correlated with a number of important demographic, socio- economic, and environmental variables.
