Concrete Fracture And Size Effect - Experimental And Numerical Studies
Most materials including concrete have pre-existing flaws or defects. The fracture energy of concrete is a basic material property needed to understand fracture initiation and propagation in concrete. Whether fracture ...
Prediction Of Engineering Properties Of Fine-Grained Soils From Their Index Properties
(Indian Institute of Science, 2006-04-27)
Prediction as a tool in engineering has been used in taking right judgement in many of the professional activities. This being the fact, the role and significance of prediction in geotechnical practice needs no emphasis. ...
Reliability Based Design Methods Of Pile Foundations Under Static And Seismic Loads
The properties of natural soil are inherently variable and influence design decisions in geotechnical engineering. Apart from the inherent variability of the soil, the variability may arise due to measurement of soil ...
Dynamic State Estimation Techniques For Identification Of Parameters Of Finite Element Structural Models
The thesis outlines the development and application of a few novel dynamic state estimation based methods for estimation of parameters of vibrating engineering structures. The study investigates strategies for data fusion ...
Numerical Modeling Of Jointed Rock Mass
(Indian Institute of Science, 2007-02-28)
The behavior of jointed rock mass is very complex and is influenced by many factors such as location of joints, joint frequency, joint orientation and joint strength. A thorough review of literature on different aspects ...
Effects Of Reinforcement Parameters On The Behavior Of Geosynthetic Reinforced Foundation Beds
Use of geosynthetics for reinforcing soil beds supporting shallow foundations has gained tremendous popularity in recent times. In this thesis, to study and understand the behaviour of geosynthetics reinforced soil ...
