  • Rainfall-induced slope failures and preventive measures in Singapore 

    Harianto, Rahardjo; Leong, Eng Choon; Alfrendo, Satyanaga; Ng, Yew Song; Tan, Hong Tuan; Hua, Chai Juay (Nanyang Technological University and Housing & Development Board, 2014)
    Steep residual soil slopes are generally characterized by a deep ground water table and a significant thickness of unsaturated soil above the water table. The negative pore-water pressure (matric suction) above the water ...
  • Rainfall-induced slope failures 

    Rahardjo, Harianto; Leong, Eng Choon; Deutscher, Michael S.; Gasmo, Jason M.; Tang, Sek Kwan (NTU-PWD Geotechnical Research Centre, Nanyang Technological University, 2000)
    Two-thirds of Singapore's land area is covered with residual soils from the Sedimentary Jurong Formation and the Bukit Timah Granite Formation. Rainfall-induced slope failures often occur in these residual soils as a result ...
  • Determination of water flow rate into subsea deep rock cavern with horseshoe cross-section 

    Xu, Zhipeng; Zhao, Zhiye; Sun, Jianping (CPC Press, Taylor and Francis., 2013)
    To reduce the risk related to water seepage during tunnel/cavern excavation, some analytical solutions for water inflow prediction corresponding to specific geological conditions have been established over the last decades. ...
