• A constitutive model for fiber-reinforced soils 

    Chen, Cheng-Wei, 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Fiber inclusion to improve the properties of compacted soil is becoming increasingly common in geotechnical engineering projects. However, the technique requires extensive testing on soil and fiber samples before it can ...
  • Nonlinear finite element modeling and characterization of guyed towers under severe loading 

    Shi, Haijian (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Guyed towers have been widely employed in the telecommunication industry. This study thus intends to improve the understanding and analysis of guyed towers that undergoes not only large deformation, but also large strain. ...
