Cavity expansion theory and its application to the analysis of pressuremeters

Abstract:

The successful application of in-situ testing of soils heavily depends on development of methods of interpretation of the tests. The purpose of this thesis is to develop a consistent theoretical basis for the interpretation of pressuremeter tests in cohesive and frictional materials. The research programme is based on cavity expansion theory with additional details provided by a large strain finite element analysis. A unified analytical solution is developed for the expansion and contraction...
