Numerical Modeling of Construction Processes in Geotechnical Engineering for Urban Environment contains the proceedings of the International Conference on Numerical Modelling of Construction Processes in Geotechnical Engineering for Urban Environment (Bochum, Germany, 23-24. March 2006).
Numerical Modeling of Construction Processes in Geotechnical Engineering for Urban Environment covers recent developments and approaches of numerical modeling of construction processes in foundation engineering.
- Includes examples of applying the methods to geotechnical practice
- Discusses case studies, field, and laboratory testing
- Provides a valuable source of reference for scientists in geotechnical engineering and numerical modelling, geotechnical engineers, post graduate students, construction companies and consultants, manufacturers of geotechnical construction plants and software suppliers and developers of geotechnical construction methods
- Driving of tunnels and pipes: Modelling of stress changes due to construction steps Influence of tunnel face stabilizing methods
- Diaphragm walls: Deformation of panels during excavation and poring of concrete, concrete pressure, settlements of nearby footings due to construction process
- Foundations and excavations: 3d analyses, interpretation of field measurements, influence of construction process on settlements of nearby environment
- Numerical Techniques and Constitutive Models: Small strain stiffness, inverse approach, anisotropy, large deformations, discontinuities
- Soil Improvement: Grouting, compensation grouting, stone columns, CSV columns
- Ground Freezing: Finite element calculations for thermal and structural conditions, modelling of expand and heave, comparison with field measurements
- Pile installation: Bored piles, pile jacking, vibro driving, sheet pile walls, numerical simulation, field analyses, model tests
- and more!
