  • Drying induced effects on the residual strength of remoulded clays 

    Merchán, V; Vaunat, Jean; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (Taylor & Francis, 2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Experimental tests on residual shear strength of clays using “high suction control system” have shown that the friction angle significantly increases at high suction, and that such an increase is more significant as the ...
  • Simulation aided testing of hydro-mechanical processes on clay 

    Merchán, V; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Vaunat, Jean (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a study focused on the hydro-mechanical behaviour of a plastic clay under partially saturated conditions. Clay remoulded samples were dried using vapour transfer under one-dimensional conditions. Samples ...

    This paper presents experimental results concerning the influence of drying and compaction on the small strain shear modulus (G0) of samples of a Boom clay reconstituted in the laboratory. For that purpose, samples of Boom ...
