  • An experimental study on the compaction and collapsible behaviour of a flood defence embankment fill 

    El Mountassir, G.; Sánchez, Marcelo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (2014-09)
    Article

    With renewed interest in the performance of flood embankments globally, it is important that the performance of fills in conditions similar to 'as-constructed' are scrutinised. The fill material investigated in this study ...
  • Comparison of four methods for determining the soil water retention curve. 

    Zielinski, M.; Sentenac, P.; Atique, A; Sánchez, Marcelo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (Taylor & Francis, 2010)

  • Coupled analysis of double porosity swelling clays 

    Gens Solé, Antonio; Guimarães, Leonardo do N; Sánchez, Marcelo; Valleján, Beatriz (Springer, 2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The understanding of the coupled behaviour of highly active swelling clays is better achieved considering two structural levels and their interactions in the context of a double-porosity model. Hydraulic equilibrium between ...
  • Coupled hydro-mechanical fault reactivation analysis 

    Pereira, Leonardo; Sánchez, Marcelo; Guimarães, Leonardo; Horowitz, Bernardo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Departament d'Enginyeria del Terreny, Cartogràfica i Geofísica, 2015-06-02)
    Conference report

  • Coupled THMC modeling of unsaturated swelling clays: constitutive formulation and boundary value problems 

    Guimarães, Leonardo do N; Gens Solé, Antonio; Sánchez, Marcelo; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià (Taylor & Francis, 2009)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An appropriate understanding of the interaction and effects of thermal, hydraulic, mechanical and chemical (THMC) phenomena occurring in compacted swelling clay is greatly assisted by the development and use of coupled ...
  • Generalized plasticity for geomaterials with double structure 

    Gens Solé, Antonio; Sánchez, Marcelo; Valleján, Beatriz (Centro Internacional de Métodos Numéricos en Ingeniería (CIMNE), 2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The paper presents a double structure constitutive model based on a generalized plasticity formalism. The behaviour of macrostructure, microstructure and their interactions are described. A coupled hydromechanical formulation ...
  • Modeling the behavior of gas hydrate bearing sediments 

    Sánchez, Marcelo; Shastri, Ajay; Gai, Xerui; Santamarina, J. Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Departament d'Enginyeria del Terreny, Cartogràfica i Geofísica, 2015-06-02)

  • Water retention behaviour of an embankment model 

    Zielinski, M.; Sánchez, Marcelo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Sentenac, P. (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2011)
    Conference lecture

    The depth of the unsaturated zone is strongly influenced by environmental factors. Approximately two-thirds of the world has sufficiently hot or arid climatic conditions so that the unsaturated zone forms more than a ...
