Chemo-hydro-mechanical behaviour of compacted Boom Clay: joint effects of osmotic and matric suctions (Thomas Telford, 2014-07)
Restricted access - publisher's policyAn experimental programme involving osmotic and matric suction controlled tests is carried out to investigate the effects of increasing pore fluid concentration, chemical cycling (salinisation/dilution) and matric suction ...
Restricted access - publisher's policyExperimental results of isotropic stress tests performed on statically compacted clayey silt are presented to examine the volume change response of the material subjected to controlled increments in net mean stress and ...
Hydromechanical behaviour of compacted granular expansive mixtures: experimental and constitutive study (2011-04-01)
Restricted access - publisher's policyCompacted granular mixtures of high-density bentonite pellets have been evaluated as an alternative buffer material to fill the empty space around nuclear waste disposal canisters in horizontal drifts. Despite the obvious ...
(Thomas Telford, 2014-05)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThis note explores the influence of environmental effects, as those induced by cyclic changes in relative humidity, on the degradation of the shear strength parameters in Lilla claystone, a low-porosity clayey rock from ...
