Role of real time-monitoring in slope stability
Rainfall-induced slope failures occur in response to climatic changes in many parts of the world. Climatic changes result in dynamic flux boundary conditions across slope surface, such as infiltration and evaporation. In ...
Effects of coarse-grained material on hydraulic properties and shear strength of top soil
Sidewalk failures associated with top soil of low shear strength are a common problem in urban areas. Mixing top soil with granite chips can be used to increase its permeability and shear strength. The effects of mixing ...
Effects of different drying rates on shrinkage characteristics of a residual soil and soil mixtures
This paper presents the experimental results of shrinkage tests using small cylindrical specimens. The shrinkage tests were performed to study the shrinkage characteristics of a residual soil and mixtures of residual soil ...
