Book Description :

The design of many structures need to foundation systems to resist vertical or horizontal uplift loads. As part of a larger effort to improve the performance of foundation systems, the development of guidelines for anchor system design and installation. The different structures like transmission towers, tunnels, sea walls, buried pipelines; retaining wall and etc are subjected to considerable uplift forces. In such cases, an absorbing and economic design solution may be obtained through the use of tension members. These elements, which are related to as anchors, are generally fixed to the structure and embedded in the ground to effective depth so that they can resist uplifting forces, will safety. Many researchers have investigated the influence of different parameters on the uplift response of horizontal anchors in sand. Researchers such as Mors (1959), Giffels et al (1960), Balla (1961), Turner (1962), Ireland (1963), Sutherland (1965), Mariupolskii (1965), Kananyan (1966), Baker and Konder (1966), Adams and Hayes (1967), Mors (1959), Balla (1961), Turner (1962), Ireland (1963), Andreadis et al, (1981), Dickin (1988), Frydman and Shaham (1989), Remeshbabu (1998), Krishna (2000), Fargic and Marovic (2003), Merfield and Sloan(2006), Dickin and Lama (2007), Kumar and Bhoi (2008), Kuzer and Kumar (2009), Niroumand et al. (2009 & 2011) were concerned with the general solution especially for an ultimate uplift capacity based on experimental works in sand. Also, many numerical studies have been carried out on the behavior of symmetrical anchor plates such as Meyerhof & Adams (1968) until the most recent analysis such as Kuzar ad Kumar (2009) are reviewed. This analysis was pioneered by Vesic (1971),Sarac(1989) and Smit (1989), Krishna(2000), Fargic and Marovic (2003), Merfield and Sloan(2006), Dickin & Laman(2007), Kumar and Bhoi (2008), Kuzer & Kumar(2009) and Niroumand et al. (2011). Increasing use of symmetrical anchor plates to resist uplift response may be achieved by increasing the size and depth of an anchor or the improvement of soil in which these anchors are embedded, or both. In restricted situations, increasing the size and depth of an anchor may not be economical compared with other alternatives. On the other hand, soil improvement can be attained by the inclusion of soil reinforcement to resist larger uplift forces. However, few investigations on the behavior of horizontal plates in a reinforced soil bed under uplift loads were reported. Subbarao et al. 1988 studied the improvement in uplift capacity by using geotextiles as ties to reinforced concrete model anchors embedded in sand. Selvadurai (1989, 1993) reported significant enhancement, of the order of 80 to 100%, in the uplift capacity of pipelines embedded in fine and coarse-grained soil beds reinforced by inclusion of geogrids immediately above the pipeline in an inclined configuration. Krishnaswamy and Parashar (1991) (1994) studied the uplift behavior of circular plates and rectangular plates embedded in cohesive and cohesionless soils with and without geosynthetic reinforcement and reported that the geocomposite reinforcement offered higher uplift resistance than both geogrid and geotextile reinforcement. Ilamparuthi and Dickin (2001) investigated the influence of soil reinforcement on the uplift behavior of model belled piles embedded in sand. A cylindrical gravel-filled geogrid cell was placed around the enlarged pile base. It was reported that uplift response increases with the diameter of the geogrid cell, sand density, pile bell diameter, and embedment. Niroumand et al. (20011) investigated the influence of soil reinforcement and grid fixed reinforced (GFR) on the uplift behavior of model symmetrical anchor plates embedded in sand. This book decries more information on history of symmetrical anchor plates in non-reinforced and reinforced and GFR conditions in sand.

Book Description :

Cavity expansion theory is a simple theory that has found many applications in geotechnical engineering. In particular, it has been used widely to analyse problems relating to deep foundations, in-situ testing, underground excavation and tunnelling, and wellbore instability. Although much research has been carried out in this field, all the major findings are reported in the form of reports and articles published in technical journals and conference proceedings. To facilitate applications and further development of cavity expansion theory, there is a need for the geotechnical community to have a single volume presentation of cavity expansion theory and its applications in solid and rock mechanics. This book is the first attempt to summarize and present, in one volume, the major developments achieved to date in the field of cavity expansion theory and its applications in geomechanics. Audience: Although it is intended primarily as a reference book for civil, mining, and petroleum engineers who are interested in cavity expansion methods, the solutions presented in the book will also be of interest to students and researchers in the fields of applied mechanics and mechanical engineering.

Book Description :

An exploration of the world of concrete as it applies to the construction of buildings, Reinforced Concrete Design of Tall Buildings provides a practical perspective on all aspects of reinforced concrete used in the design of structures, with particular focus on tall and ultra-tall buildings. Written by Dr. Bungale S. Taranath, this work explains the fundamental principles and state-of-the-art technologies required to build vertical structures as sound as they are eloquent. Dozens of cases studies of tall buildings throughout the world, many designed by Dr. Taranath, provide in-depth insight on why and how specific structural system choices are made. The book bridges the gap between two approaches: one based on intuitive skills and experience and the other based on computer skills and analytical techniques. Examining the results when experiential intuition marries unfathomable precision, this book discusses: The latest building codes, including ASCE/SEI 7-05, IBC-06/09, ACI 318-05/08, and ASCE/SEI 41-06 Recent developments in studies of seismic vulnerability and retrofit design Earthquake hazard mitigation technology, including seismic base isolation, passive energy dissipation, and damping systems Lateral bracing concepts and gravity-resisting systems Performance based design trends Dynamic response spectrum and equivalent lateral load procedures Using realistic examples throughout, Dr. Taranath shows how to create sound, cost-efficient high rise structures. His lucid and thorough explanations provide the tools required to derive systems that gracefully resist the battering forces of nature while addressing the specific needs of building owners, developers, and architects. The book is packed with broad-ranging material from fundamental principles to the state-of-the-art technologies and includes techniques thoroughly developed to be highly adaptable. Offering complete guidance, instructive examples, and color illustrations, the author develops several approaches for designing tall buildings. He demonstrates the benefits of blending imaginative problem solving and rational analysis for creating better structural systems.
