Liquefaction

Liquefaction resistance of soil with Liquiter

Liquefaction resistance of soil with Liquiter Simplified procedure for evaluating liquefaction resistance of soils Following disastrous earthquakes that occurred in Alaska and Niigata (Japan in 1964), Seed and Idris (1971) proposed a simplified methodology for assessing the resistance to liquefaction of soils. This methodology has been selected and improved over the years (e.g. Seed, 1979;…

Ammasso roccioso

Rock masses and software

Rock masses and software For the rock masses complex formations, geotechnical characterization and modeling is necessary to evaluate the characteristic resistance: the nature, geometry and resistance of discontinuities are important. In addition, it must be specified whether the characteristic resistance refers to discontinuities or to the rock mass. In this respect, we want to give…

Subsidence How to analyze it with Loadcap

Subsidence How to analyze it with Loadcap Latterly, an interesting research paper, entitled “Alternative methods for calculating compaction in sedimentary basins” whose autors are Martiìn-Martìn M. and Robles-Marìn P., was published on Marine and Petroleum Geology. In this paper, the authors propose alternative methods for calculating compaction in sedimentary basin and, in particular, suggest the…
