L'article presente une synthese des conclusions tirees de l'etude experimentale en laboratoire des proprietes mecaniques du polystyrene expanse utilise pour la construction de remblais routiers en France. L'etude a porte principalement sur l'effet de la densite de ce materiau sur son comportement mecanique (module d'elasticite initial, seuil de plasticite, vitesse de fluage), afin de definir les valeurs a prendre en compte dans les projets. Des valeurs forfaitaires a utiliser en l'absence de… 

Experimentelle und numerische Untersuchung zum Langzeitkriechverhalten von Wärmedämmplatten aus extrudiertem Polystyrol‐Hartschaumstoff

Extrudierter Polystyrol‐Hartschaum (XPS) hat aufgrund seiner ausgezeichneten Eigenschaften als lastabtragende Wärmedämmung in letzter Zeit große Aufmerksamkeit erregt. Diese Art der Wärmedämmung wird

On the Time-Dependent Behavior of EPS Geofoam: Experimental and Numerical Investigations

Expanded polystyrene geofoam (EPS) is used as a lightweight fill material in a wide range of geotechnical engineering applications, including, embankments, retaining walls, and buried structures.

Numerical simulation of EPS geofoam behaviour in triaxial tests

Purpose – EPS geofoam has been widely used in embankment construction, slope stabilisation, retaining walls, bridge approaches and abutments. Nevertheless, the potential of EPS geofoam as an

A Viscoelastic-Plastic Behaviour Analysis of Expanded Polystyrene under Compressive Loading: Experiments and Modelling

Generally, when soil has poor properties (unstable or compressible soils) it is possible to use EPS foam in road construction, because this material has low density. In this case, it is necessary to

Predictive models for mechanical properties of expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam using regression analysis and artificial neural networks

Initial elastic modulus and compressive strength are the two most important engineering properties for modeling and design of EPS geofoams, which are extensively used in civil engineering

Effect of confinement and temperature on the behavior of EPS geofoam

EPS geofoam blocks underlying compacted soil and structural loads become subjected to multi-axial loading. Effects of confining pressure on the stress-strain behavior of EPS geofoam have been

Modeling the behavior of a hybrid interactive system involving soil, structure and EPS geofoam

In recent years, EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) geofoam is gaining worldwide recognition in the construction industry either as lightweight substitution or as compressible inclusion, in reducing the

APPLICATION OF EPS GEOFOAM AS A SEISMIC BUFFER: NUMERICAL STUDY USING FLAC

The paper describes the development and verification of a FLAC numerical code that was used to simulate the results of an experimental program of reduced-scale geofoam buffer tests. The tests were
