Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A distressed Rigidly Framed Earth Retaining Structure (RFERS) open concrete garage that retains 11 m (36 ft) of soil was instrumented. After some repairs, movement of the building was monitored and recorded hourly. The monitoring revealed complex temperature-dependent soil structure interactions, which are reported in this chapter.
