Research Highlights

Bounding surface model for sands under cyclic loading

Modification of the original bounding surface hypoplasticity model proposed by Wang et al (1990) to extend it to simulate a wide range of sands, dense and loose, under either cyclic or monotonic loading with but a single set of parameters.

Simulation of cyclic mobility


Hydromechanical coupling with RKPM

2D consolidation with finite depth Footing problem


Ground motion characterization for liquefaction prediction

Investigating the relationships between ground motion intensity measures (IMs) and liquefaction potential, numerically and physically.
