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 ...

<p>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. ...

This paper describes the lab and in situ site characterization works performed. In order to characterize as accurately as possible these marls, different levels in depth have been distinguished.

For a practical approach in routine site characterizations, the minimal standard of work should be seismic piezocone tests (SCPTu) or seismic flat dilatometer tests (SDMT), as up to 5 separate measurements of soil behavior are captured during a single sounding. ...

The responses of the individual base and side components of O-cell load tests on drilled shaft foundations can be evaluated within an elastic continuum framework using results from seismic piezocone tests (SCPTu). The SCPTu is an optimal means for collection ...

The interpretation of in-situ geotechnical test data needs a unified approach so that soil parameters are evaluated in a consistent and complementary manner with laboratory results. A common thread in assessing in-situ tests is the focus on the geologic stress ...

In this paper an analysis of in situ rock mass modulus measurements for a wide range of rock types from China and Taiwan has resulted in two new equations for estimating rock mass deformation modulus.

Interrelationships between the flat dilatometer readings (lift-off pressure, p0, and expansion pressure, p1) and piezocone readings (cone tip stress, qt, and penetration porewater pressures, u2) are explored for three soft clay sites. Within the intact regions, ...

This paper reports an analysis procedure for the evaluation of the features of the motion of blocks detaching from a steep rock wall and traveling down the slope below. Starting from the execution of real scale rock fall tests, carried out on two slopes having ...
