The project consists of the temporary watertight closure of dry dock Nº. 2 for maintenance and repair of the dock’s infrastructure. The closure was effected by means of a cellular Read more... about Mechanical characterization of a hydraulic fill sand and FEM simulation of cellular cofferdams at Carena project

Buenos Aires, Argentina, rests on a loess deposit named Pampeano Formation. Foundations of buildings, industrial facilities, major infrastructure projects, metro tunnels and a nuclear power plant lay on this deposit. Pampeano soil is also used as a construction material for sub-bases, fills and Read more... about Small-strain stiffness of the Pampeano Formation

A numerical procedure for the preliminary estimation of the earthquake-induced settlement of concrete face rockfill dams is presented. The method is based on a simple constitutive model that accounts for the key features of the behavior of coarse grained materials that affect the response of Read more... about Numerical Assessment of the Deformation of CFRD Dams During Earthquakes
