Large changes in the soil composition of earthen dams can lead to seismic response that is difficult to predict. 3D models of material properties may help improve future earthquake response at dams with high geomaterial variability. Find out how our group is addressing this challenge in Geomaterial Characterization and Stability Assessment of Hydraulic Fill Dams. […]
Expansive soils can wreak havoc on roadway pavements leading to cracking, rutting, and differential heaving. To remedy this issue, research focus is being put into the use of wicking geotextiles. Recently, our group has published an article on just this issue, Evaluating the Performance of Wicking Geotextile in Providing Drainage for Flexible Pavements Built over […]
Current seismic analysis for the natural frequency of hydraulic fill dams is limited to small strains. Therefore, new and improved methods of 2D analysis need to be created in order to expand the picture of earthen dam earthquake analysis. Our article, Seismic Response Analysis of a Hydraulic Fill Dam, explores this topic and presents our […]
