Dit onderwerp bevat de volgende rubrieken.


ed. by E. den Haan, R. Termaat, T.B. Edil



Contains the papers, general reports, and summaries of the discussions of the workshop, which was divided into three sessions: 1) one-dimensional behaviour; 2) stress-strain and strength behaviour; 3) immediate issues in engineering practice. Themes included: one-dimensional stress-strain-strainrate compression models; creep of peat; K0 measurements; empirical relationships for rapid estimation of settlement due to surface loads; thermal effects on compression; effects of fibre reinforcement on stress-strain relationships; discrete element and finite element modelling of fibrous peat; decomposition and gas formation in polder dikes; special techniques such as friction piles, preloading, and strip drains; long term behaviour of embankments on peat; special laboratory research into biaxial response, pore size distribution, degree of inhomogeneity, and cyclic behaviour.
