Three dimensional formulation for the stress-strain-dilatancy elasto-plastic constitutive model for sand under cyclic behaviour.
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2014)
Recent experiences from the Darfield and Canterbury, New Zealand earthquakes have shown that the soft soil condition of saturated liquefiable sand has a profound effect on seismic response of buildings, bridges and other ...
Effects of Fines on the Undrained Behaviour of Christchurch Sandy Soils
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources, 2010)
Liquefaction of sandy soil has been observed to cause significant damage to infrastructure during major earthquakes. Historical cases of liquefaction have typically occurred in sands containing some portion of fines ...
The Performance of House Foundations in the Canterbury Earthquakes
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2013)
The Canterbury Earthquakes of 2010-2011, in particular the 4th September 2010 Darfield earthquake and the 22nd February 2011 Christchurch earthquake, produced severe and widespread liquefaction in Christchurch and surrounding ...
Behaviour of piles in liquefiable deposits during strong earthquakes
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2007)
Soil liquefaction has caused major damage to pile foundations in many previous earthquakes. Pile foundations are relatively vulnerable to lateral loads such as those from earthquake shaking; during liquefaction this ...
The geotechnical characterisation of Christchurch sands for advanced soil modelling.
(University of Canterbury. Dept. Civil Engineering, 2015)
In 2010 and 2011 Christchurch, New Zealand experienced a series of earthquakes that caused extensive damage across the city, but primarily to the Central Business District (CBD) and eastern suburbs. A major feature of the ...
