300 Solved Exercices in Geotechnical Engineering

Dear Students, Engineers and Lecturers,

As indicated in the post subtitle, attached is a PDF file containing 300 solved problems in soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering.

I hope that it will be useful for all of you.

Jet Grouting Design and Control

Dear all,

Attached is a conference paper dealing with jet grouting design and control. It exposes clearly how these foundation elements work under compressive loads. Further, it gives practical recommandations regarding execution procedures of such a foundation system in terms of particle size distribution. More precisely, it proposes several execution modes of jet grout columns depending on grain size distributions of layers which will be “crossed” by these elements.

I hope that it will be useful for all of you.

Decoding Eurocodes

Dear all,

Attached is a very interesting book exposing in details all the recommandations proposed by Eurocode 7. Further, this document gives readers the ability to understand how the Eurocode 7 has been built and what are the main points of difference between it and other standards, especially, the british one.

Good lecture for all of you.

Sincerely,

B.G

 

Comparaison between 2D and 3D Modeling of Jet Grouting Columns

Dear all,

Attached is a paper detailing the difference between 2D (plain strain conditions )  and 3D modeling of jet grouting columns. Indeed, as not all of us has an official 3D licence of a given computational geotechnical code, we are sometimes facing the need to carry on equivalent 3D modeling in plain strain conditions.

I hope that this paper will be useful to all of you.

Sincerely,

Jet grout Columns 2D and 3D

Reinforcement of Soils by Stone Columns

Dear all,

Attached is a PPT file presenting a practical tool for designing columnar-reinforced foundation. The software Columns 1.0, architected and designed by Prof Mounir Bouassida and Lassad Hazzar is the fruit of more than 25 years of research and practical experience in soil improvement. Columns 1.0,a purely tunisian product, has been commercialized since 2008 and purchased by several international firms as Leighton Consulting (USA), Hamza Associates (Egypt), EGM (France), etc… Based on a novel methodology established by Prof Mounir Bouassida, Columns allows the user to have an optimal design of a given reinforcing solution (Stone Columns, Rigid inclusions(CFA piles), Jet grouting,etc..) based on results of geotechnical exploration campaign.

In the same context, I have attached you 3 other scientific papers and 2 presentations dealing with stone-columns modeling for more  deeper details.

I hope that this post will be useful for all of you.

Sincerely,

B.G

FLAC and Numerical Modeling in Geomechanics

Dear all,

Here you can find a set of technical papers presenting the use of the finite difference code FLAC in several geotechnical case studies. As most of you know, FLAC gives for users more “liberty” and “flexibility” when building up their geomechanical models and even during their computational phases.

I hope that this document will enrich you both in your engineering and research projects.

Sincerely,

Computing Lateral Earth Pressure

Good morning,

Here, you can find a master thesis detailing how to compute lateral earth pressure. The main advantage of this document is to bring you deeply about a frequent exercice in geotechnics. As all of you know, lateral earth presure is useful in most geotechincal practices as retaining walls, sheet piles, slope stability and further applications. A good reason for which we should take a look on this master thesis !

I hope that it will be useful for you .

Linear and Nonlinear Numercial Analysis of Foundations

Dear all,

Attached is a very interesting file on which you can find several recommandations for building up foundation numerical models. The book treats several types of earth structures as piles, retaining walls, shallow footings, anchored systems, etc…

I hope that it will be useful for all of you.

Good week starting !

Practical Tool for Determining Compressibility Parameters of Clayey Soils

Good evening,

Attached is a very interesting Excel file allowing you to determine compressibility parameters of a given clayey soil based on oedometer data. Further, you can even use such a tool to carry on back analysis based on in situ test results and then run with precision you consolidation analysis.

Hope that it will be useful for you.

Greetings,
