  1. Vulkanos and Earthquakes

    30 Jul 2012 | Publications

    really interesting

  2. Compressive Strength of Unreinforced Struts (enhanced PDF)

    10 Feb 2017 | Publications | Contributor(s): Lucas Laughery, Santiago Pujol

    At present, the majority of published literature claims that the compressive unit strength of a plain concrete strut loaded over itsfull cross section is greater than the unit strength of the same strut loaded over a reduced width. The strength reduction in the lattercase is attributed to the...

  3. Investigation of Grouted Helical Pier based Foundation Rehabilitation

    22 Oct 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Tara Hutchinson, Dan Wilson

     This data report describes the centrifuge test that was performed in June 2006 on the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of the test was to develop the instruments and materials for in-flight grouting and simulate and study the working mechanisms and properties of grouted...

  4. Anchorage Detailing Effects on Lateral Deformation Components of R/C Shear Walls

    26 May 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Benton Johnson

    Structural walls, or shear walls, are elements used to resist lateral loads, such as those generated by wind and earthquakes. Structural walls are considerably deeper than typical beams or columns. This attribute gives structural walls considerable in-plane stiffness which makes structural walls...

  5. Performance of T-shaped Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls under Multi-Directional Loading

    26 May 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Beth Brueggen

    The study described in this thesis was a key component of a larger, collaborative project involving researchers from the University of Minnesota (Narina Jung, Ben Johnson), Iowa State University (Sri Sritharan, Jon Waugh, Sriram Aaleti), University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (Ricardo Lopez) and...

  6. UCD/CGMDR-05/03 Collaborative Research: Dynamic Behavior of Slickensided Surfaces - Centrifuge Data Report for CLM01

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Christopher Meehan, James Duncan, Ross Boulanger

    This document describes a centrifuge test that was performed using the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of this test was to measure the amount of displacement that occurs during earthquake shaking along a preformed slickensided clay surface. The recorded data can be used to evaluate...

  7. UCD/CGMDR-05/04 Collaborative Research: Dynamic Behavior of Slickensided Surfaces - Centrifuge Data Report for CLM02

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Christopher Meehan, James Duncan, Ross Boulanger

    This document describes a centrifuge test that was performed using the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of this test was to measure the amount of displacement that occurs during earthquake shaking along a preformed slickensided clay surface. The recorded data can be used to evaluate...

  8. Development of a Direct Test Method for Dynamically Assessing the Liquefaction Resistance of Soils In Situ

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Brady Cox

    This dissertation details work conducted by researchers from the University of Texas at Austin aimed toward the development and implementation of a new in-situ liquefaction testing technique. This technique is an active method that may be used to directly evaluate the liquefaction resistance of...

  9. Experimental Investigation of a Full-scale Flat-plate Reinforced Concrete Structure Subjected to Cyclic Lateral Loading in the Inelastic Range of Response

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Damon Fick

    Reinforced concrete flat-plate construction is a popular building type because of the simple formwork required for construction and the clearance that is provided for mechanical and electrical equipment. During the period 1950 through 1980, buildings using the flat-plate for the lateral-force...

  10. CCEER-06-02: Large-Scale Experimental and Analytical Seismic Studies of a Two-Span Reinforced Concrete Bridge System

    31 Jul 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Nathan Johnson, Mehdi Saiidi, David Sanders

    A quarter-scale, 67 ft (20.5 m) long asymmetric reinforced concrete bridge model with two-spans supported on three, two-column piers was tested using the shake table system at the University of Nevada Reno. In addition, extensive analytical studies were conducted. The shake table testing was...
