<p>This paper presents the shear strength study of a saturated and unsaturated lateritic tropical soil, via triaxial compression tests on undisturbed (loose) and compacted soil samples. The shear strength of the soil increases hyperbolically with increasing ...

<p>Although many intact rock types can be very strong, a critical confining pressure can eventually be reached in triaxial testing, such that the Mohr shear strength envelope becomes horizontal. This critical state has recently been better defined, and correct ...

<p>Geotechnical performance of a structure is generally governed by spatial average soil properties, such as the average shear strength along a potential slip surface in a slope. In Eurocode the characteristic soil value is defined as &ldquo;a cautious estimate ...

In this study, a geotechnical testing program was conducted to evaluate the engineering properties of old municipal solid waste sampled in Whamyung MSW landfill site, Busan, Korea.

<p>Strong ground motions from the Mw 6.6 2007 Niigata-ken Chuetsu-oki earthquake were recorded by a free-field downhole array installed near the Service Hall at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant. Site conditions at the array consist of about 70m of ...

<p>The construction of cuts, embankments and dam in and on different ground require the analyses of slope stability, deformations and often the use of the observational method. New codes, such as Eurocode 7 or its sister code in Switzerland SIA 267, prescribe ...

<p>The SPT is considered one of the most common in-situ tests to evaluate the strength of coarse grained soil. In this study, it is tried to answer the question that, whether is possible to estimate undrained shear strength (Su) of fine-grained soil from N ...

Back-analysis of a landslide is performed to estimate the mobilized shear strength of the problematic layer. Back-analysis can be an effective procedure for estimating the mobilized shear strength because it avoids the problems associated with laboratory and ...

The excess pore water pressure developed in the Upper San Fernando Dam during the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake has been evaluated in several studies. Almost all of these studies indicate large excess pore pressure ratios developed only in the upstream and ...

<p>Many empirical and theoretical CPT interpretation methods are broadly accepted and used in practice. These approaches tend to consider whether the cone penetration is drained or undrained, and then will consider the soil as either &ldquo;sand&rdquo; or ...
