    20 Jul 2017 | Contributor(s):: Darcey Donovan

    Title: Seismic Performance of Innovative Straw Bale Wall Systems (NEES-2009-0666)Year Of Curation: 2014Description: The objective of this project was to determine the capacity of four earthen plastered, load bearing, thin straw bale wall assemblies under in-plane cyclic loading, and the...

  3. Seismically Induced Delayed-Landslides in Homogeneous Cohesive Slopes and Embankments (NEES-2007-0412)

    28 Jun 2017 | Contributor(s):: Joseph Wartman

    Title: Seismically Induced Delayed-Landslides in Homogeneous Cohesive Slopes and Embankments (NEES-2007-0412)Year Of Curation: 2011Description: Project is designed to track the pore pressure generation/dissipation as a function of varying shaking events. These pore pressure regimes are studied...

  4. Dynamic Behavior of Slickensided Surfaces (NEES-2005-0027)

    09 Jun 2017 | Contributor(s):: Ross Boulanger, James Duncan

    Title: Dynamic Behavior of Slickensided Surfaces (NEES-2005-0027)Year Of Curation: 2011Description: This project consists of a series of centrifuge tests that were performed using the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of these tests was to measure the amount of displacement that...
