Seismic performance of strip foundations on liquefiable soils with a permeable crust

Journal Article
Dimitriadi, V., Bouckovalas, G., & Papadimitriou, A. (2017)
Seismic performance of strip foundations on liquefiable soils with a permeable crust. Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, 100, 396-409. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.soildyn.2017.04.021

Particle-scale interaction in sand-rubber mixtures and their influence on energy dissipation mechanisms

Journal Article
Fonseca, J., Riaz, A., Bernal-Sanchez, J., Barreto Gonzalez, D., McDougall, J., Miranda Manzanares, M., …Dimitriadi, V. (2019)
Particle-scale interaction in sand-rubber mixtures and their influence on energy dissipation mechanisms. Géotechnique Letters, 9(4), 1-6. https://doi.org/10.1680/jgele.18.00221
Sand-rubber mixture (SRm) behaviour is affected by rubber content (RC) whilst dissipation in sands is caused by inter-particle sliding. Dissipation in SRm is as, or more signi...
