Tire shreds and tire shred - soil mixtures can be used as alternative backfill material in many geotechnical applications. The reuse of tire shreds may not only address growing environmental and economic concerns, but also help solve geotechnical problems ...

<p>An alternative procedure to determine the hydraulic conductivity function (k-function) based on relationships between saturated hydraulic conductivity and void ratio and between air-entry value and void ratio is proposed. The procedure was applied to determine ...

Scale factors for centrifuge modelling have been traditionally defined using dimensional analysis concepts. This is the case for example of centrifuge modelling of unsaturated water flow. However, scale factors governing suction, discharge velocity and time ...
