SOIL MECHANICS

This collection of seven reports is of interest to soils engineers and designers concerned with pipes and culverts, with reinforced earth and with bearing capacities. In addition to papers on pavement design, there is presented the analysis of large-scale field studies of flexible pipe culverts that led to a recommendation that a ring compression method with a higher factor of safety be adopted for future construction. The paper on reinforced earth embankments is based on Rankine's state-of-stress theory and a new strain energy principle. A method for determining the critical bearing capacity of a footing on saturated, undrained clay is discussed. A new solution to the deformational behavior of beams on nonhomogenous bases concludes the series of reports.
