Abstract: Dissipation of excess pore pressures during piezocone testing in firm to stiff overconsolidated fine-grained soils provides data curves that cannot be interpreted using published theoretical solutions. Available solutions are based on either cavity-expansion or strain-path methods,...
An opportunity to re–examine the liquefaction potential of hydraulically placed tailings sand has been provided by the Canadian Liquefaction Experiment (CANLEX). As part of this experiment, undisturbed samples of tailings sand were recovered after freezing the tailings in situ. Examination of...
The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been developed and used in modelling dry granular materials with or without cohesive bonding between particles. The incorporation of fluid flow in the DEM analysis is difficult since the DEM is a discrete approach to mechanistic analysis while fluid is a...
