Ekici, Anıl; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
In this study, some of the factors affecting the slope stabilizing pile response have been investigated by means of three dimensional finite element solution using PLAXIS 3D software. Three full scaled field experiments were modeled for the verification of the proposed 3D models. It was concluded that PLAXIS 3D can successfully predict the measured pile deflection and force distributions. Afterwards, a parametric study was carried out. Two series of analyses (i) studying the effect of the pile embedment dep...

In this study the penetration of spudcan foundation for “jack-up rig” type offshore oil platform into a uniform clayey seabed is investigated with three-dimensional finite element modeling (Abaqus 6.14) using coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian method that can handle large strain problems. One of the goals of this study is to compare the penetration-bearing resistance behavior of spudcan obtained by numerical study with the method suggested in InSafeJIP design guideline. For the spudcan geometry and soil properties...
Three dimensional computational analysis of fatigue crack propagation in functionally graded materials
Sabuncuoglu, Baris; Dağ, Serkan; YILDIRIM, BORA (Elsevier BV, 2012-02-01)
This article proposes a new finite elements based three dimensional method developed to study the phenomenon of fatigue crack propagation in functionally graded materials (FGMs). The particular problem examined in detail is that of an initially-elliptical crack located in a functionally graded medium, subjected to mode I cyclic loading. The crack is modelled by employing three dimensional finite elements; and the stress intensity factors (SIFs) around the crack front are computed by the application of the d...
Three dimensional numerical modelling of discontinuous rocks by using distinct element method
Koçal, Arman; Karpuz, Celal; Department of Mining Engineering (2008)
Shear strength characterization of discontinuities is an important concept for slope design in discontinuous rocks. This study presents the development of a methodology for implementing Barton-Bandis empirical shear strength failure criterion in three dimensional distinct element code, 3DEC, and verification of this methodology. Normal and shear deformation characteristics of discontinuities and their relations to the discontinuity surface characteristics have been reviewed in detail. First, a C++ dynamic l...
