|Title of the thesis:||Utilization of the Finite Element Method in the Analysis and Design of Geotechnical Structures|
|Summary:||Habilitation thesis focuses on the analysis and design of geotechnical structures using numerical Finite Element Method (FEM). Chapter 1 is devoted to the introduction to analysis and design of geotechnical structures. Chapter 2 gives a brief survey of methods and techniques (analytical, numerical), which have been used in analysis of the soil -- structure interaction. Chapter 3 describes the mathematical apparatus of the FEM used in analysis of practical examples presented in the work. In the main part of the thesis (Chapter 4) there are presented five practical examples of using the FEM in the analysis and design of geotechnical structures and the following problems: - analysis of the interaction between shallow foundations and subsoil, - calculation of settlement of the Interim Spent Fuel Storage Facility building in Jaslovske Bohunice, - design optimization of the deep-foundation of the Dunaújváros Bridge, - analysis of vertical displacements of the subsoil and building of hydropower plant in Gabčikovo, - design optimization of the dam of the pump hydropower plant at the Ipel River. The Conclusion presents the summary of knowledge obtained from the utilization of FEM in the analysis and design of geotechnical structures. By virtue of the complex knowledge presented in the habilitation thesis it can be assumed that the degree of relevancy and accuracy of geotechnical analyses and calculations will be highly affected by using proper approaches reflecting current level of theoretical knowledge and related engineering disciplines. Verification of compliance of the theoretical assumptions with results of experimental measurements will be emphasized. In dealing with complex and difficult practical geotechnical problems, engineering approach combined with numerical analyses (especially FEM) will play important, crucial role. FEM enables modeling of geotechnical structures considering complex geometry, material and static boundary conditions.|
