Geosynthetics in Road Pavement Design Methods

The use of geosynthetic materials such as geogrid, geotextile and geocomposite products in roads and pavements for reinforcement has been demonstrated to be a viable technology through studies conducted over many years. Research has shown the importance of design variables in the efficiency of geosynthetic materials. The use and specification of geosynthetics for pavement support …more

E.H. Davis Memorial Lecture 2012: Combined Loading of Offshore Foundations

Predicting the bearing capacity of a foundation under combined vertical (V), horizontal (H) and moment (M) loads is a fundamental soil mechanics problem. Traditional solutions utilise ad-hoc adjustment factors to reduce the pure vertical bearing capacity in order to account for inclination, eccentricity, foundation shape and soil strength gradients. These procedures have their roots in …more
