Highways give you the arteries of recent society. The interplay of highway, rail and different delivery infrastructure with the floor is strangely intimate, and hence should be well-understood to supply financial and trustworthy infrastructure for society. demanding situations contain not just the layout of latest infrastructure (often on difficult ground), yet more and more the administration and upkeep of getting older resources within the face of matters reminiscent of weather swap.

Example text

The research for correlative links between the parameters of the continuous medium and those of the discontinuous medium has been the object of various studies in soil mechanics, and there are several expressions concerning the parameters used in foundation calculations in particular. As it is difficult to identify all the parameters of the grain geometry, the nature of the granular medium is often synthesized by a specific arrangement of the grains in response to suitable normalized tests. For sands and gravels, we use two specific void ratios called “maximal void ratio” emax and “minimal void ratio” emin.

For a better understanding of the limitations of main constitutive models, the reader can refer to the results of two international workshops which took place in Grenoble in 1984 and in Cleveland in 1988, which were devoted to comparing model performances along various loading paths [WOR 84, WOR 88]. The second necessary choice is linked to the description of the loading history and leads to the following questions: which state variables? Which hardening variables? Which memory parameters? These questions have not been fundamentally addressed in this chapter, even if they play a central role in the quality of the model prediction.
