The central Andes (18° - 26°S) is an active Cordilleran orogen, formed through the subduction of the Nazca oceanic plate beneath the South American continent. Despite significant tectonic crustal shortening and thickening (60 -70 km), deep seismic imaging indicates a thin to absent mantle...
The uplift behavior of a shallow pipeline embedded in an elastoplastic medium is examined. An analytical solution for a beam on elastoplastic foundation is developed and a characteristic nondimensional load‐displacement and stress‐displacement relationship are presented. An approximate...
