    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper presents selected experimental results of the microstructure, the hydro-mechanical properties and the volume change response along wetting and drying paths of a compacted silt. The material was recovered from a ...
  • Constitutive model developments for compacted unsaturated fine grained soils based on porosimetry 

    Salgueiro, René; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Suriol Castellví, Josep (Taylor & Francis, 2010)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Modeling the mechanical behavior of compacted unsaturated soils against stress and suction changes is complex. One reason is that the structure mostly depends on the initial moisture content and compaction energy applied. ...
  • Effect of intermediate stress on collapse behaviour of a compacted clayey silt 

    Cárdenas, Octavio; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Suriol Castellví, Josep (Springer, 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    There are few experimental results on the influence of the intermediate principal stress on the behaviour of unsaturated soils. Particularly, the effect of intermediate stress on the collapse response of a soil subjected ...
  • Els túnels ferroviaris a la collada de Toses 

    Suriol Castellví, Josep (2009)
    Article
    Open Access
    At the beginning of the 20th century, and within the train network connecting to France, there was a project to extend the train network Barcelona-Ripoll to Ribes de Freser and from there, crossing the Toses pass, to ...

  • Parameter calibration for hydro-mechanical modelling using numerical simulations of test results 

    Gómez, Rodrigo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Suriol Castellví, Josep (Taylor & Francis, 2010)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper reports an experimental study and parameter calibration exercise centred on the hydro-mechanical response of an unsaturated soil. The study benefits from compacted silt samples retrieved from a fully instrumented ...

    Suriol Castellví, Josep; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (Edicions UPC, 2007)
    Book
    Restricted access to the UPC academic community
    El presente texto trata de introducir al estudiante de Geotecnia a la problemática derivada del estudio del terreno como medio natural. Surge entonces la necesidad de transformar las propiedades del terreno en parámetros ...
  • Small-strain shear stiffness of compacted clays: initial state and microstructural features 

    Suriol Castellví, Josep; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Vaunat, Jean (CRC Press, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The small-strain shear stiffness of compacted Barcelona silty clay is studied focusing on the effects of the initial state and the microstructure set on compaction. The Proctor plane is used to map these states, which cover ...
  • Studying collapse behaviour of sandy silt under generalised stress conditions 

    Cárdenas, Octavio E.; WEBER, R; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Suriol Castellví, Josep (IOS Press, 2016)
    Conference lecture
