Rockfalls frequently occur in Alpine areas, creating serious risks to population and buildings; the protection measures against rockfalls cannot be adequately designed unless the comprehensive understanding of rockfall phenomenon. Some experimental rockfall ...

<p>In this paper results of experimental field tests carried out on a scree slope, located in Northern Italy, are presented. On Alpine talus cones the motion of blocks is typically characterized by impacts and rebounds, which in modelling are described using ...

This paper provides the background to the 50th Rankine Lecture. It considers the growth in emphasis of the prediction of ground displacements during design in the past two decades of the 20th century, as a result of the lessons learnt from field observations. ...

<p>The Perm&eacute;afor is an in situ soil testing device developed in the early 80&rsquo;s. The probe has a conical shape and is pushed or hammered into the ground using<br />a conventional drill rig. The tool is advanced through the subsurface at a constant ...

<p>As energy exploration moves in to deeper water, there is a growing need for high quality in-situ testing of near surface seafloor sediments. The cone penetration test (CPT) has become the primary in-situ test for offshore site investigations, especially ...

<p>At the Port of Ploce, situated in the river Neretva delta at south Adriatic coast of Croatia, intensive building activities are undertaken. Comprehensive and massive geotechnical investigations are needed for different structures, including drilling, laboratory ...

<p>In situ testing in geotechnical engineering has traditionally been carried out using relatively heavy equipment. Smaller soil exploration equipment allow the<br />use of the cone penetration test (CPT) to be used for some geotechnical work with difficult ...

<p>This paper investigated the vertical and horizontal distribution of excess pore pressure generated by cone penetration. Multi-porous element piezocone tests were conducted in the field and physical model tests were also performed in the<br />calibration ...

<p>In this paper, the effects of penetration rate on cone resistance in saturated clayey soils were investigated by performing miniature cone penetration tests in<br />a calibration chamber. These tests, using both a conical and flat-tip penetrometers, were ...
