<p>Mechanisms leading to degradation of shales are first described from a qualitative perspective. Stress changes and suction cycles are stressed as important contributors. The effect of these two effects on the degradation of clay rocks around tunnels are ...
This paper discusses the relative advantages and disadvantages in the application of the cone penetration test to geotechnical site characterization in karst. It presents cone penetration test data collected at two project sites in deeply weathered, clay-mantled ...
