granular soil

Soil comprised of sediments or other unconsolidated accumulations of particles (such as gravel, sand, or silt) having no clay content; crumbles easily when dry.

Their topics include predicting the seismic displacement of landslides and gravity walls using a multi-block model, dynamic responses of high-speed railway bridges under earthquakes and their influences on running safety, seismic resistant braced frame structures with shape-memory alloy-based self- centering damping devices, applying numerical tools for modelling granular soil behavior under earthquakes, applying dissipated energy to model cyclic loaded saturated soils, and simplified modal response history analysis for asymmetric-plan structures.
To obtain the results presented here, nitrogen gas at 200 kPa source pressure was fed to a flow meter (15 L/min capacity) and then delivered at constant flow rate to the headspace of a closed-ended, thin-walled, stainless steel tube, 500mm long by 50mm radius, which had been embedded 100 mm into the dry granular soil sample.

Due to the high variability of the encountered soils, no continuous layers with specific geotechnical parameters were found; only a distinction between cohesive and granular soil was made, whose values of the main parameters are listed in Table 1.
