The latest research from this site is an offshoot of the STADYN project. The abstract is as follows:
Hyperbolic soil modelling and strain softening have become better understood in recent years; however, their application to modelling load-deflection characteristics for the shaft of both bored and driven piles is in the early stages of development. This paper proposes a method that is based strictly on the strain-softening changes in shear modulus that is experienced to varying degrees around the pile shaft. A dimensionless method is proposed which can be transformed to a physical estimate using simple soil parameters.
His contributions and legacy are reflected in the values of the company he built and the leadership he provided to the industry he loved. President and CEO Patrick Sheehan reflects on Don’s legacy. “It would be […]
On this day in 1997 this website was started as a GeoCities site. Wonder what the web was like back then?

Readers of this blog will know that my family goes back a long way visiting the Bahamas in general and the Abaco Islands in particular. We had some exciting times, almost sending our ship to the bottom and riding out a storm. This beautiful paradise, which looked like this when we visited: Now looks like […]
