Finite Element Analysis of serviceability limit states (SLS) and bearing capacity (ULS) of piled foundations involves the modelling piles in the soil, including pile-soil interaction. Embedded beams are an efficient way to model multiple piles for complex practical applications. Following initial work of Sadek & Shahrour (2004) on embedded...

Thermal and Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) analysis is at the core of a broad range of geotechnical engineering applications. In this context, an implicit fully coupled formulation has been implemented in the Finite Element software PLAXIS to perform robustly THM analyses. Advanced constitutive models can be easily defined and implemented with...

In 2017 the Dutch national standardization institute (NEN) released a new version of the National Annex to NEN-EN 1997-1 Eurocode 7, including revised reduced pile base factors. This has a significant impact on the dimensions of pile foundations. Consequently, in situ load tests were considered in the Port of Rotterdam. In this study, full-scale...

This paper presents an objective comparison between two recent constitutive models employing the concept of the hardening memory surface to predict the high cyclic loading behaviour of granular soils. The hardening memory surface is applied to the well-known Severn-Trent sand and the SANINSAND04 constitutive models. While the addition of the new...

Submarine buried pipelines may often interact with shallow layers of loose sand that are particularly prone to liquefaction. When liquefaction is triggered by environmental loading and/or mechanical vibrations, the soil tends to behave as a viscous solid-fluid mixture and the pipeline to undergo either flotation or sinking. While a few...

The offshore wind sector is skyrocketing worldwide, with a clear trend towards wind farms installed in increasingly deep waters and harsh marine environments. This is posing significant engineering challenges, including those regarding the design of support structures and foundations for offshore wind turbines (OWTs). Substantial research...

Dikes in the Netherlands have traditionally been constructed with soil. Climate change and subsidence requires heightening and or reinforcing these existing dikes. Traditional reinforcements demand additional space, which in some cases conflicts with existing buildings. Applying sheet pile walls in dikes allows for strengthening while minimizing...

Dikes in the Netherlands have traditionally been constructed with soil. Climate change and sub-sidence requires heightening and or reinforcing of these existing ground dikes. Traditional reinforcements de-mand additional space, which in some cases conflicts with existing buildings. Applying sheet pile walls in dikes allows for strengthening...

Levees in the Netherlands have traditionally been constructed from soil. Climate change and land subsidence require heightening and/or reinforcing these existing levees. Traditional reinforcements demand additional space, which in some cases conflicts with existing buildings. Applying sheet pile walls in levees allows for strengthening while...
