    Global Scale Impacts

    , Asteroids IV, Editors: Michel, DeMeo, Bottke, Publisher: University of Arizona Press, Pages: 661-678, ISBN: 9780816532131

    Global scale impacts modify the physical or thermal state of a substantial fraction of a target asteroid. Specific effects include accretion, family formation, reshaping, mixing and layering, shock and frictional heating, fragmentation, material compaction, dilatation, stripping of mantle and crust, and seismic degradation. Deciphering the complicated record of global scale impacts, in asteroids and meteorites, will lead us to understand the original planet-forming process and its resultant populations, and their evolution in time as collisions became faster and fewer. We provide a brief overview of these ideas, and an introduction to models.

    New design methods for large diameter piles under lateral loading for offshore wind applications

    , Pages: 705-710

    © 2015 Taylor and Francis Group, London. Offshore wind turbines are typically founded on single large diameter piles, termed monopiles. Pile diameters of between 5mand 6mare routinely used, with diameters of up to 10 m, or more, being considered for future designs. There are concerns that current design approaches, such as the p − y method, which were developed for piles with a relatively large length to diameter ratio, may not be appropri ate for large diameter monopiles. A joint industry project, PISA (PIle Soil Analysis), has been established to develop new design methods for large diameter monopiles under lateral loading. The project involves three strands of work; (i) numerical modelling; (ii) development of a new design method; (iii) field testing. This paper describes the framework on which the new design method is based. Analyses conducted using the new design method are compared with methods used in current practice.

    Field testing of large diameter piles under lateral loading for offshore wind applications

    , Pages: 1255-1260

    © The authors and ICE Publishing: All rights reserved, 2015. Offshore wind power in the UK, and around Europe, has the potential to deliver significant quantities of renewable energy. The foundation is a critical element in the de sign. The most common foundation design is a single large diameter pile, termed a monopile. Pile diameters of between 5m and 6m are routinely used, with diameters up to 10m or more, being considered for future designs. Questions have been raised as to whether current design methods for lateral loading are relevant to these very large diameter piles. To explore this problem a joint industry project, PISA, co-ordinated by DONG Energy and the Carbon Trust, has been established. The aim of the project is to develop a new design framework for laterally loaded piles based on new theoretical developments, numerical modelling and bench- marked against a suite of large scale field pile tests. The project began in August 2013 and is scheduled to complete during 2015. This paper briefly outlines the project, focusing on the design of the field testing. The testing involves three sizes of pile, from 0.27m in diameter through to 2.0m in diameter. Two sites will be used; a stiff clay site and a dense sand site. Tests will include monotonic loading and cyclic loading. A suite of site investigation will be carried out to aid interpretation of the field tests, and will involve in-situ testing, standard laboratory testing and more advanced laboratory testing.

    Numerical modelling of wave attenuation through soil

    , Pages: 3959-3964

    © The authors and ICE Publishing: All rights reserved, 2015. Numerical analyses of induced ground vibrations play an important role in assessing building safety and comfort. One of the major difficulties is related to the calibration of an adequate source model to be used in the numerical simulation. In this paper the attenuation of waves caused by drop load tests is considered to provide a general framework for the evaluation of vibration attenuation both with empirical laws and numerical simulations. A new equation to reproduce the source signal is suggested and used as input for a dynamic coupled consolidation Finite Element Analysis. The model is validated through comparison with field data obtained at a site in the vicinity of the Tower of Pisa, Italy, from geophones at various distances from the impact source. The calibrated numerical model is then used to study in detail the attenuation of waves from the source and assess the validity of empirical attenuation laws.

    Numerical modelling of open-loop ground source energy systems

    , Pages: 2523-2528

    © The authors and ICE Publishing: All rights reserved, 2015. The environmental and economic benefits of utilising the ground for extracting and storing heat have been known for a long time. However, only recently have government sustainability policies and rising energy prices encouraged the use of this renewable energy resource. In open-loop systems water is abstracted from one well and re-injected into another after exchanging energy with a building's heating/cooling system using a heat pump. In order to guarantee a good performance of the system, it is fundamental that the possibility of thermal breakthrough occurring is minimised, i.e. that the temperature of the water being abstracted remains unaffected by the injection of warmer/cooler water at the other well. In this paper, the Imperial College Finite Element Program (ICFEP), which is capable of simulating fully coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical behaviour of porous materials, was used to perform two-dimensional analyses of open- loop ground source heat systems. The parametric studies carried out highlight the relative impact on the occurrence of thermal breakthrough of the hydraulic ground conditions and the geometric characteristics of the system, providing an invaluable insight into possible improvements to the current design procedure.
