Evaluation of cyclic behavior of dense sands under multidirectional loading using centrifuge tests (2018-04-20)The seismic performance of nuclear power plant (NPP) structures constructed on compacted, coarse-grained soil depends on the soil’s cyclic shear stress – shear strain – volumetric strain response. NPPs founded on a thick ...
Numerical simulations of site response and seismic settlements at Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant, Japan (2019-12-04)Constructed on the west coast of Japan, the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant was strongly shaken by Mw 6.6 Niigata-ken Chuetsu-oki earthquake in 2007. Significant seismic settlements were observed in dry sand deposits ...
(2020-05-08)Granular materials such as sands, gravels, railroad ballast, and rock are inherently highly heterogeneous and anisotropic. While they are known as one of the most widely used materials in industry, their complex behaviors ...
