Soil Mechanics 2013
TRB’s Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2363 consists of 13 papers that evaluate the time rate of settlement for multilayered clays undergoing radial drainage; deflection behavior for 0° and 30° skewed abutments; pullout resistance factors for inextensible mechanically stabilized earth reinforcements in sandy backfill; probabilistic framework for strength limit and service limit checks of drilled shafts considering soil spatial variability; and, properties of constructed tubular-steel cast-in-place pilings.
This TRR also summarizes high pile rebound with fines content and uncorrected blow counts from standard penetration tests; the use of geothermal deep foundations for bridge deicing; reinforcement pullout capacity in mechanically stabilized earth walls with marginal-quality soils; the use of rapid-hardening cement for controlled low-strength materials for pavement applications; and, modeling in situ performance of cement-stabilized granular base layers of urban roads.
In addition, this TRR explores stabilization of high-sulfate soils by extended mellowing; stiffness evolution of granular materials stabilized with foamed bitumen and cement; and, reinforcement tensile behavior under cyclic moving wheel loads.
