r] is the average excess pore-water pressure at any depth in the composite foundation when only considering the radial penetration.
w] represent the average excess pore-water pressure at any point in the composite foundation and the average excess pore-water pressure at any depth in the stone column when only considering the radial penetration, respectively.
According to the phenomenon that the average excess pore-water pressures within the column and the entire composite foundation are identical when t = [t.
VW piezometers are used to monitor pore-water pressure in the borehole.
The dissipation of pore-water pressure in the embankment is largely influenced by the permeability and the storage characteristic of the embankment materials.
The lag of the phreatic line depends on factors such as: permeability of soils, drawdown rate, drawdown ratio and slope gradient during rapid drawdown, the stabilizing effect of the water on the upstream face is lost, but the pore-water pressures within the embankment may remain high.
SLOPE/W (Part of a Geo studio 2007) can effectively dissect both simple and complex problems for a variety of slip surface shapes pore-water pressure conditions soil properties analysis methods and loading conditions.
Seed and Booker (1977) approach for pore-water pressure generation and dissipation is applied, with some modifications for evaluating the densification effect of GPs, incorporating modifications in coefficients of volume change and permeability, to the analysis of columnar gravel drains under a variety of earthquake conditions.
If the magnitude of pore-water pressure generated equals the confining pressure, the effective stress becomes zero, the soil is said to have liquefied.
Theory of pore-water pressure generation and dissipation developed by Seed and Booker (1977) is applied, with some modifications for evaluating the densification effect of RGPs, to the analysis of columnar gravel drains under a variety of earthquake conditions.

Each plot also includes a subsurface drain that can be used to control groundwater in the near-streambank vadose zone, supplementing existing research at OSU on the role of pore-water pressures and groundwater processes on stream-bank erosion anci failure.
