<p>This paper presents an alternative numerical method to model the two dimensional contaminant transport through saturated porous media using a finite difference method (FDM) and finite element method (FEM). A finite-difference model is constructed by dividing ...

An innovative configuration of pocket-type rockfall protective cable-net structure, known as Long-span Pocket-type Rock-net (LPR), has been developed in Japan. The global performance of the proposed system was initially checked by the experimental (full-scale) ...

<p>It has been known that soil shear strength parameters are stress level dependent. On the other hand, foundation size has a significant effect on the level of imposed stress on subsoil elements. In this study, the Zero Extension Lines (ZEL) method, which ...

This study consists of two case studies of landslides in natural slope: Lei Pue Street landslide, Hong Kong and Barabensi Landslide, Nepal. The first landslide transformed into a debris flow while the second one did not. Several numerical models (Slope/W, ...

<p>Numerical methods are relatively recent compared to the analytical methods of slope stability analysis known as "limit equilibrium". Numerical techniques are used to obtain stress and strain distribution at any point of a defined grid. They are particularly ...
