<p>The stability analysis of rock slopes has been a challenging task for engineers <br />because the rock mass constituting the slope often has discontinuities in various <br />forms, resulting in different types of slope failures. The plane failure is one ...

<p>The immersed tunnel technique is a common used technique for river crossings in the Netherlands, but also in the United States and Japan. 80% of the immersed tunnels are built in these 3 countries. The design of the immersed tunnels differs for the different ...

<p>Earthquake triggered rapid landslides in Himalayan and Eastern China regions have created devastation in past. Earthquake induced landslides remained a major cause of damage to structures and facilities constructed on or in the vicinity of the slopes and ...

Due to seismic events, such as earthquakes, the elastic waves propagate through a medium. The impact of these waves on underground structures is to provide dynamic forces and moments that may affect the stability of underground structures. The aim of this ...

The increments of the internal forces induced by an earthquake in the transverse section of a tunnel lining can be ascribed to the ovalisation of the section, induced by soil shear straining in the vertical plane. They can be assessed with several procedures ...

In the epicentral areas of major recent earthquakes, landslide density scales with peak ground acceleration. Topographic site effects on seismic waves are known to cause important gradients in ground acceleration in individual mountain ridges. Using landslide ...

These guidelines primarily aim to assist planners (and other interested parties) in determining whether planning documents and resource consent applications at regional and district levels incorporate appropriate information on landslide and slope instability ...

Severe damage to six out of a total of 21 subway stations in the Kobe area during the 1995 Hyogoken-nanbu earthquake indicated a need for more attention to be given to the earthquake design of rectangular underground structures. This paper presents work undertaken ...

<p>The use of lightweight-fill materials for highway construction increased significantly worldwide during the 1990s. Predominant with this trend was the increased use of cellular geosynthetics (geofoams and geocombs), especially block-molded expanded polystyrene ...
