The Study on the Simple Measurement by Using the Strain Gauge at Dam Dynamic Behavior Analysis
Lee, Seungho ;
Journal of the Korean Geoenvironmental Society , volume 8, issue 1, 2007, Pages 5~11
Internal stress variation in the face slab concrete induced by reservoir water pressure may affect on the stability of the dam so that the reclamation type of strain gauge is applied for measuring internal stress variation. In this study, internal as well as external stress variation of dam was measured by using strain gauge that was reclaimed to the
dam. In the result, it was confirmed that other measurements by relevant gauges need to be supplemented as the use of strain gauge only is insufficient to evaluate the stability analysis and global behavior of the dam.

Leachates resulting from the waste landfill of waste can possibly cause the second pollution, such as the underground water and environmental pollution. Accordingly, Liner layer has been installed in the reclaimed land of waste to block and purify permeation water to and prevent this second pollution. The material used as Liner layer should have water resistance and be less than permeability coefficient of
cm/sec. As it is very difficult to get this kind of natural clay with low permeability around the field, the suitable way to get the low permeable material is to use blend with good watertighness by mixing it with natural soil which is spread in the site. While this mixed soil, which can resist water, is commonly used in the site, namely, bentonite and MCG cementious mateiral mixed soil, which is widely used as Liner layer in the reclaimed land of waste, is recognized in Liner and durability. The study was performed to find the effect of additive of the bottom liner in the waste landfill. The aim of this paper is to explain of the field application examples as well as the data of experimental research with the engineering properties of Liner layer of the reclaimed land.

The strength evaluation of rocks is a very important factor in designing and constructing tunnels or underground excavation. However, it takes a lot of time and endeavor to perform the unconfined compressive strength test for practice and a number of tests are limited. In order to make up for this method, the point load strength test is suggested. Generally, the strength of a rock differs depending on its type and region. However, as people unite the Point Load Strength Indexes of various regions and types to use in practice in many cases, they find difficulty in analogizing the exact strength. The purpose of this study is suggestion of the value in construction site by analizing the relation of both unconfined compressive and point load strength in the Gyeonggi gneiss complex.

Trafficability for construction equipments in soft ground should be secured by improving the surface course. For this situation, the ground improvement technique has been used with stiffening agent, but the improvement cement has been mostly used so far. However, oyster shell has been developed and used as the stiffening agent to expand the chance of recycling oyster shell, which is regarded as solid waste. In this research, it was confirmed mechanical characteristics of oyster shell as stiffening agent by analyzing the strength characteristic such as mixing rates, water contents, and curing days of that to the dredging soil.

Engineering behaviour of uplift-resisting ground anchors constructed in weathered rocks has been investigated by carrying out a series of full scale pull-out tests. The anchor was to resist uplift forces (buoyancy) associated with high groundwater table acting on the basement of a rail way station. The study has included the ultimate pull-out capacity of the anchors and shear stress transfer mechanism at the anchor-ground interface. The pull-out tests were conducted by changing bonded lengths of the anchor (2~7 m) and diameter of drilled borehole (108~165 mm) to investigate their effects on the behaviour of the anchor. The measured results showed that the ultimate capacity of the anchors was increased with an increase in the bonded length, diameter of drilled borehole as expected. The ultimate capacity of the anchors deduced from the pull-out tests ranged from 392 to 1,569 kN, depending on the above-mentioned factors. This corresponds to the interface shear strength of about 227~505 kPa. Interface shear stresses deduced from the pull-out test showed that the larger the pull-out force, the larger the mobilisation of the interface shear strength. The failure mode of the anchors heavily depended on the bonded lengths of the anchors. When the bonded length was short (2~3 m), a cone-type failure was observed, whereas when the bonded length increased (5~7 m), failure developed at the grout-ground interface.

Recent investigations into earthquake-induced damage have reported that liquefaction may take place on not only sands but also fine-contained soils or non-plastic silts. Although not a few study has been performed to understand the liquefaction of sands, relatively little effort has been devoted to improving our understanding of the liquefaction characteristics for non-plastic soils. Given that liquefaction strength is largely associated to shear wave velocity, bender element test as well as direct simple shear test is employed to examine the stiffness of non-plastic silt more precisely. Through the soil tests, the stiffness of non-plastic silts from the bender element tests is identified as slightly greater than that from the direct simple shear test. Further, the stiffness of non-plastic silts appears to be smaller than that of clay.

In order to utilize treads of waste tire as reinforcement material it is necessary to know the interface friction angle between tread surfaces and soil and tensile strength of connection joint of tire treads. In this research large direct shear tests were performed to get the interface friction angle between the inner and outer surfaces of treads and soil for different degree of compaction. From the large direct shear tests, the ratio of interface friction angle to the shear friction angle of sand,
, were 1.06 in outside surface of tire tread and 0.93 in inside surface of tire tread. For weathered granite soil the ratio of interface friction angle was 0.98 and 0.92 for outside and inside of tread, respectively. Also tensile tests were performed using universal testing machine for the connection joint of treads and Tirecell units using bolts. The tensile strength of connection joint increased with the number of bolts and with the sizes of washers. Connection by polypropylene ropes showed lower strength than those of bolts.
