Instrumentation of an unsaturated residual soil slope
The stability of slopes has become a major concern in areas that experience frequent periods of heavy rainfall such as the tropical areas of Southeast Asia. Previous research has indicated that rainfall has a detrimental ...
Measurements of matric suction and volume changes during inundation of collapsible soil
Reduction in soil volume due to inundation under a constant total stress is a phenomenon referred to as collapse. Collapse is exhibited by soils during a change of state from an unsaturated to a saturated condition. Several ...
Automatic adaptive mesh generation using metric advancing front approach
A new mesh generation procedure is suggested for the generation of 2D adaptive finite element meshes with strong element gradation and stretching effects. Metric tensors are employed to define and control the element ...
Band offsets at GaInP/AlGaInP(001) heterostructures lattice matched to GaAs
In this work, the band offsets at the Ga0.5In0.5P/AlxGa0.5-xIn0.5P heterojunction lattice matched to (001) GaAs was calculated over the whole range of aluminum composition from x=0.0 to 0.5 using the first-principles ...
