CANADIAN GEOTECHNICAL JOURNAL

Monthly

ISSN: 0008-3674

NATL RESEARCH COUNCIL CANADA-N R C RESEARCH PRESS, BUILDING M 55, OTTAWA, CANADA, ON, K1A

Published since 1963, this monthly journal features articles, notes, and discussions related to new developments in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, and applied sciences. The topics of papers written by researchers, theoreticians, and engineers/scientists active in industry include soil and rock mechanics, material properties and fundamental behaviour, site characterization, foundations, excavations, tunnels, dams and embankments, slopes, landslides, geological and rock engineering, ground improvement, hydrogeology and contaminant hydrogeology, geochemistry, waste management, geosynthetics, offshore engineering, ice, frozen ground and northern engineering, risk and reliability applications, and physical and numerical modelling. Papers on actual case records from practice are encouraged and frequently featured.

K0 procedure about Plaxis 3D Foundation

The first calculation phase (Initial phase) in the 3D FOUNDATION program is always a calculation of the initial stress field for the initial geometry configuration by means of gravity loading.

In contrast to other PLAXIS products, the 3D FOUNDATION program does not contain a quick procedure to generate the initial stress field on the basis of soil weight and K0-input (known as K0-procedure). Therefore, the initial phase represents a real finite element calculation in which soil weight is applied by means of gravity loading. If not all geometry components are active in the initial situation, the user must deactivate these components in the draw area .

After this initial phase, subsequent calculation phases may be defined by the user.

Health Habits That Can Backfire

Sometimes too much of a good thing is actually pretty bad--especially when it comes to your health. While you certainly don't want to skimp on healthy habits like exercising, sleeping and eating plenty of vitamin-rich food, overdoing any of these can be dangerous. Here's why.

Sleeping Too Much

If you tend to get only six hours during the work week, but sleep nine to 10 hours on Saturday morning, don't be surprised if you wake up with a headache, says Margaret Lewin, MD. "When you're asleep, you breathe in and out more slowly, so you get rid of less carbon dioxide," she says. When you sleep in on the weekends, carbon dioxide can build up a bit and lead to headaches. You may also wake up with a pounding head if you sleep ......
