Seismic liquefaction performance of strip foundations: Effect of ground improvement dimensions

Journal Article
Dimitriadi, V. E., Bouckovalas, G. D., Chaloulos, Y. K., & Aggelis, A. S. (2018)
Seismic liquefaction performance of strip foundations: Effect of ground improvement dimensions. Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, 106, 298-307. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.soildyn.2017.08.021
Evidence from field case studies, as well as from experimental and theoretical research, suggest that the detrimental effects of seismic liquefaction on the performance of sur...

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
Modern seismic codes dictate that the use of shallow foundations on liquefiable soils may be considered only after appropriate ground improvement. No further instructions are ...

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...
