Processing of synthetic aperture radar data as applied to the characterization of localized deformation features
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Satellite-based Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) has been used by the geoscience community for many years to obtain ground deformation measurements of large-scale spatial features. Researchers have also ...
Within-site variability and reliability of foundation designs based on load tests
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
is within-site variability, which describes the variability of foundation resistance across a site. Within-site variability is attributed to geologic variation across a site and to differences in construction outcomes among foundation elements. Published...
Investigation of load transfer models for recycled plastic reinforcement for slope stabilization
(University of Missouri-Columbia, 2011)
Slope failures are not only hazardous to the public, but they are also costly to maintain and repair. A field testing program involving five test sites has been executed in an effort to develop better design practices for slopes reinforced...
Load transfer in reticulated and non-reticulated micropiles from large-scale tests
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Using micropiles for slope stabilization is a proven technique but there are many uncertainties with how load is transferred from the soil to the structural elements. A large-scale model was constructed to test model slopes ...
Load transfer in micropiles for slope stabilization from tests of large-scale physical models
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
The objective of this work is to provide experimental data to improve prediction of limit loads for micropiles in slope stabilization applications. The experimental data were obtained from tests of 1-g model slopes 8 ft ...
