    Annular reinforcing steel bar stress and pipe-soil contact pressure during pipe-jacking were monitored on the spot. The differences of the active contact pressure from the related research results were analyzed. The results show that when the pipe is pulled in the stable slurry interface which has been already formed, and since the test pipe was pulled into the tunnel bore, the distribution of contact pressure tends to be uniform and remain stable. But the contact pressure will increase suddenly when grouting, and return to normal gradually after stopping pulling. The lateral force of the pipe is also stable, though not big, mainly showing compressive stress, whose changing is controlled by pipeline axial deviation and grouting. Therefore, the pipe is in a state of eccentric compression in the test. Compared with the results of the field test, the specification is rather conservative. Besides, the active distribution of contact pressure is close to the load model developed by Lei Han, which can be used to optimize pipeline structure design.

    Analysis of soil counterforce and displacement of circular caisson pipe jacking project was made under the effect of different top edge using the site monitoring method as well as the comparative validation of distribution pattern of resistance of different open caisson using finite element numerical simulation methods. The results show that the distribution pattern of resistance of open caisson is approximated by a straight line which mutates in the depth of the caisson bottom due to the stiffness of the floor at large and reaches the maximum at the foot. The displacement of soil occurs less but as a whole under the jacking force. Simultaneously, the rationality of less than the active state was verified in the case that the soil of open caisson produces a smaller displacement under the caisson sinking back below the front wall of the active state which gives the variation of inking back soil reactions with the different distance.

    WU Jun-jie, LIU Shuai-jun, CHEN Jin-jian, WANG Jian-hua
    2014, 48 (11):  1523-1527,1535.  doi: 10.16183/j.cnki.jsjtu.2014.11.004
    Abstract ( 698 )   HTML ( 164 )   PDF (351KB) ( 356 )   Save

    Unloading effect of the deep excavation would decrease the pile's bearing capacity and increase the tensile in pile shaft. A novel test system which can control the soil stress state was developed to study the pile-soil interactive behavior. In this novel system, the normal stress on the pile-soil interface is applied by the air pressure in the triaxial cell. The soil stress along the pile axis and the movement of model pile are controlled by the double piston. The pore pressure and water flow in the soil sample are adjusted by the two water cannels on the test cell. With the monitoring part of the system, the total shear force on the interface, the relative movement of the pile, and the deformation of the soil layer can be measured during tests. The triaxial interface tests show that the limit friction resistance and friction coefficient increase with the increase of the confining pressure, and the displacement of soil also increases with the increase of the confininig pressure.

    Coupled Consolidation in Unsaturated Soils Based on Random Field Theory
    CHENG Yan, ZHANG Lu-lu, ZHANG Lei, WANG Jian-hua
    2014, 48 (11):  1528-1535.  doi: 10.16183/j.cnki.jsjtu.2014.11.005
    Abstract ( 568 )   HTML ( 203 )   PDF (397KB) ( 519 )   Save

    Based on the random field theory, a random finite element model of coupled unsaturated consolidation in spatial random soils was established using the covariance matrix decomposition method and Monte Carlo simulation method. The effects of spatial variability of Young's modulus and saturated permeability were investigated. The results show that the mean and standard deviation of the settlement are significantly affected by the coefficient of variation of Young's modulus, and COVE. When COVE increases, the mean and standard deviation of the settlement increase, which means the uncertainty of the settlement are increased due to the spatial variability of Young's modulus. When the correlation length of Young's modulus δlnE decreases, the standard deviation of excess pore water pressure and the surface settlement decrease due to the increased spatial averaging effect. The spatial averaging effect is more significant when the thickness of soil layer is smaller than δlnE. In general, the effect of spatial variability of ks is much less significant than that of elastic modulus, which mainly affects the unsaturated consolidation in process.

    Abstract: The wind pressure distribution, wind-load shape coefficients and equivalent static wind loads of a complex longspan dome-grid structure under undulating terrains were numerically simulated using FLUENT. The results show that the distribution of wind load shape coefficients are quite different with the change of the wind direction. The time-history series of wind velocity was simulated based on the harmonic superposition method and then turned into the timehistory series of wind pressure. The FEM model of the structural system was constituted by using ANSYS and the structural wind-induced responses and wind load shape coefficients were obtained based on the timehistory series of wind-pressure. The wind-induced dynamic amplification factor was defined, so the structural resonant responses could be considered. Then, the wind-induced dynamic amplification factor was combined with the distribution of instantaneous wind pressure at the given time and the equivalent static wind loads of the structural system were established. The numerical analysis reveals the distribution of  equivalent static wind loads based on the minimum vertical reaction forces of structural system.

    Abstract: In order to study the bearing behavior of composite foundation with flexible pile at longterm load, comparative experiments of composite foundation with rammed soilcement pile with or without lateral restraint at longterm load were conducted. Settlement marks were laid on the surface of composite foundation to measure the sedimentation of pile and soil, from which the variation law of the sedimentation of pile and soil with time could be obtained. By laying earth pressure cells on the surface and bottom of the foundation and building PVC tube with stain gauge in pile shaft to measure the stress value, the stress variation of pile top and soil top, the stress ratio of pile soil and pile shaft tress change with time were analyzed.  The results of comparative tests show that at longterm load, the performance of composite foundation of rammed soil-cement pile with lateral constraint length piles is obviously better than that without lateral restraint, which can greatly shorten the time step in stable phase (approximately 64%) and reduce the settlement after construction (approximately 29% to 42%), and decrease the pilesoil stress ratio approximately 39%, hence adjust the distribution of axial force of pile shaft significantly. It can be acknowledged that when soft soil is treated with flexible pile, the settlement after construction can be effectively reduced and bearing capacity of subgrade can be improved if rigid long pile is set as lateral restraint.

    Abstract ( 141 )   Save

    Abstract: The key problem for fast first order reliability method (FORM) is to quickly find out the design point of limit state function. After analyzing some HLRFbased design point searching algorithms, a novel FORM was proposed based on the Shi-Shen line search rule. As this FORM is based on adaptive step size parameters, it is referred to as aHLRF. Compared with the traditional HLRF-based method, the aHLRF not only is globally convergent, but also can adaptively estimate some important algorithm parameters using previous iteration information. The robustness and efficiency of the aHLRF were also discussed. Examples illustrate that the aHLRF is very efficiency for estimating the first order reliability probability, especially for problems whose the nonlinearity of limit state function near the design point is very large.

    Abstract: In order to study the seismic performance of prefabricated reinforced concrete frame with infill slit shear walls (PRCFW), two half-scale PRCFW models with one bay, two stories were designed to conduct low cyclic load. The failure mechanism and deformation capacity of PRCFW were gained after the analysis of the failure mode, stiffness degradation, ductile behavior and performance of energy dissipation of specimens. Experimental studies show that the castin-situ joint presents good working performance during this experiment, and the seismic design requirement of strong connection-weak bar is satisfied. The PRCFW has good ductility with a ductility factor greater than 3. The failure mode of slit shear walls is changed and developed from the bending failure of shear wall into the shear failure whose shear crack runs through the whole shear wall. Besides, no failure occurs in the connection between the frame and the infill wall. Moreover, the shear connector worked well. The test results can provide useful information for further research and engineering application of PRCFW.

    Abstract ( 153 )   Save

    Abstract: Water vaporcondensation on metal surface causes corrosion and further affects the performance. In order to decrease this disadvantageous effect, in this paper, the coating of desiccant material (silica gel) to metal surface was proposed. The performance of this method was analyzed both by experiments and by theoretical investigation. Condensation time was adopted as the performance index. Experimental results indicate that desiccantcoated metal surface can effectively delay condensation time which is defined as parameter t. When the temperature difference between metal surface and the dew point is constant, t increases with the decrease of the dew point temperature.When the dew point temperature is constant, t increases with the increase of metal surface temperature. Then, the dynamic condensation process on metal surface was analyzed using the adsorption kinetic model. The diffusivity of water vapor is calculated, because t is affected by the diffusivity of water. The results show that the diffusivity of water vapor is affected significantly by the temperature of silica gel and the water vapor partial pressure. When the temperature of silica is constant, the water vapor diffusivity decreases with decreasing water vapor partial pressure. And when the water vapor partial pressure is constant, the water diffusivity decreases with decreasing temperature of silica, leading to a longer delay time of condensation.

    Abstract: Experiments on the conveying characteristics of Inner Mongolia bituminous coal powder were conducted on a pilotscale pressurized pneumatic conveying test rig. Effects of operational conditions and material properties on the voidage ε were explored respectively. The results indicate that increasing the conveying pressure p is beneficial for conveying at a lower ε. ε initially drops and then grows with the rise in the flow rate of fluidizing gas Qf. Increase of supplemental gas Qsp leads to a higher ε. With the increase of total differential pressure Δp, ε of 52 μm coal decreases at first and then increases marginally, whereas the voidages in the riser section εr of 115 μm and 300 μm coal both rise continually. εr of pulverized coal with larger particle size exhibits a lower voidage at the same Δp. Increase of the moisture content  M of coal results in a lower volumetric flow rate of solids and a higher volidage of the two phase flow. With the decrease of superficial gas velocity Vg, the flow regime of 300 μm coal changes from suspended flow to slug flow, while the volidge in the pipeline εp declines gradually.

    Abstract: Three types of structural flow passages were designed, and flow field characteristics of hydrodynamic polishing base plates in different structure flow passages were studied. A mathematical model of flow field with constraint condition were built based on the liquid dynamic theory, and Matlab was used to compare and analyze the distributions of liquid dynamic pressure at different structural parameters. Relationships between buoyancy and film thickness, pressure distribution, structural parameters were obtained. Fluent software was used to calculate the pressure and speed distribution of flow fields. Theoretical and numerical results show that the largest buoyancy is produced by the parabolic structure flow passage,followed by the wedge structure flow passage, while the L structure flow passage is produces the smallest buoyancy. The flow velocity is relatively stable in the area where the workpiece is adhered, providing good condition for noncontact polishing process.

    In this paper, based on Biot's theory, a numerical model for wave-seabed-pipeline dynamic response was established to investigate seabed instability failure. The seabed was treated as porous medium. The model simulated the distribution of pore pressure and effective stress, and the process of liquefaction around buried pipeline under various wave loads were investigated. Partly dynamic (u-p) formulations for the wave-induced response of the seabed with pipeline were adopted. In partly dynamic analysis, the u-p formulation in which both displacement and pore pressure were field variables was adopted considering the acceleration of soil skeleton while neglecting the inertial terms associated with pore water. Using COMSOL Multiphysics, a parametric study, including the permeability, degree of saturation, buried depth and wave height was conducted to investigate the seabed response. Then, a criterion for liquefied state was used and the possibility of wave-induced liquefaction occurring in porous seabed was studied.

The crack growth rates were measured insitu realtime using the direct current potential drop method. Experimental results indicate that the crack growth rates increase with the increase of dissolved oxygen. When the oxygen content is less than 0.2 mg/L, the increase of the crack growth rate is very significant, while above this value, it becomes unconspicuous. This result was compared with those of other researchers’ and possible reasons were analyzed.

    Abstract: The solution-diffusion model was used to predict the behavior of reverse osmosis membrane,when used for the removal of cobalt from radioactive wastewater.System mass balances together with solutiondiffusionmass transfer models were used to simulate the separation process of low concentrations of cobalt.Model equation constants were obtained when the cobalt concentration was high, and  the experimental data were then compared with simulated data when the cobalt concentration was low. The results show that the relative error between experimental data and simulated data does not exceed 15%. Good agreement between the experimental and the predicted cobalt concentrations suggests that the solutiondiffusion model can be used to well predict osmotic concentration even when the concentration of cobalt is low.

    Abstract: In order to describe the distributed character of sea wall osmosis pressure  and analyze its rule under special coastal condition, artificial neural network was considered with multiple survey point information. Coordinates of survey points were added to input layer together with former tidewater factor, integral rain factor and time effect factor. The monitored data were used to train the distributed model. Based on the training result, complementary coordinate samples were put into the model, and osmosis pressure of different locations and distributed curve were obtained. The general regression neural network was used, taking the monitored information of Pudong sea wall as instances. The instances illustrated the establishment of distributed model and the obtainment of distributed curve, although the neural network does not give apparent expressions. Moreover, sea wall osmosis pressure special distributed rules were analyzed using these results.

    Abstract: To comprehensively evaluate the dynamic stability of liquid storage tanks under earthquake excitations, the equivalent dynamic perturbation equations were established based on coupled fluidsolid model with displacementpressure form, the resistance force in structure domain was parameterized by timevarying geometric stiffening matrix, the generalized perturbation variables were then modified and the vector length was adjusted in real-time, and the dynamic Lyapunov characteristic exponents were then solved with time-stepping techniques, by which the dynamic stability analysis of a 100 000 m3 oil storage tank was respectively executed under harmonic and earthquake ground motions. The results show that the dynamic instability regions obtained by the above Lyapunov method were essentially consistent with the estimates of Floquet method, and the maximum relative error of critical peak ground acceleration calculated by Lyapunov method and B-R criteria method is appoximately 10 %, and the wind girders are helpful to inhibit dynamic instability regions and improve the critical peak ground acceleration. The proposed Lyapunov method is suitable for secondorder dynamic systems, can consider the effect of earthquake duration, and does not restrict the characteristics of seismic waves. Moreover it also dramatically reduces the computing cost of dynamic stability analysis and meets the precision requirement for engineering application.
