Abstract

Effective stress FEM which is able to control the growth of shear strains is proposed. Its validity is firstly confirmed through the simulation of undrained cyclic torsional shear tests. Then, it is applied to simulation of centrifuge shaking model tests; the experimental model consists of a caisson type quay wall and reclamation laid on the sand layer. Development of shear strain is shown to be controlled arbitrary keeping the excess porewater pressure generation unchanged through the simulation of undrained cyclic torsional shear test, which indicates that proposed model can be applicable to variety of soils with different density and fines contents. Displacement is shown to be controlled keeping excess porewater pressure generation constant in the centrifugal model, too, and good agreement is obtained between test and analysis by controlling the parameter for shear strain development.

Effective Stress Analysis by Shear Strain Controllable Model and its Application to Centrifuge Shaking Model Test

San Diego, California

Effective stress FEM which is able to control the growth of shear strains is proposed. Its validity is firstly confirmed through the simulation of undrained cyclic torsional shear tests. Then, it is applied to simulation of centrifuge shaking model tests; the experimental model consists of a caisson type quay wall and reclamation laid on the sand layer. Development of shear strain is shown to be controlled arbitrary keeping the excess porewater pressure generation unchanged through the simulation of undrained cyclic torsional shear test, which indicates that proposed model can be applicable to variety of soils with different density and fines contents. Displacement is shown to be controlled keeping excess porewater pressure generation constant in the centrifugal model, too, and good agreement is obtained between test and analysis by controlling the parameter for shear strain development.
