  • Fully coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical double-porosity formulation for unsaturated soils 

    Sánchez, Marcelo; Gens Solé, Antonio; Victoria Villar, María; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This work presents a fully coupled formulation developed to handle engineering problems in unsaturated (and saturated) soils that present two dominant void levels. The proposed framework assumes the presence of two porous ...
  • Numerical analysis of suction embedded plate anchors in structured clay 

    Charlton, T. S.; Rouainia, M.; Gens Solé, Antonio (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    As offshore energy developments move towards deeper water, moored floating production facilities are increasingly preferred to fixed structures. Anchoring systems are therefore of great interest to engineers working on ...
  • A numerical investigation of the incremental behavior of crushable granular soils 

    Ciantia, Matteo Oryem; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Calvetti, Francesco; Gens Solé, Antonio (2016-09)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The mechanical behavior of granular materials is characterized by strong nonlinearity and irreversibility. These properties have been differently described by a variety of constitutive models. To test any constitutive ...
  • Run-out of landslides in brittle soils 

    Yerro Colom, Alba; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè (2016-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    One of the factors causing the acceleration of landslides is the loss of strength of the soil involved in the potential unstable mechanism. The travelled distance and the landslide velocity, a key factor in risk analysis, ...
  • Hydro-chemical modelling of in situ behaviour of bituminized radioactive waste in Boom Clay 

    Mokni, Nadia; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Valcke, Elie; Bleyen, N; Smets, Esteven; Li, Xiang Ling; Sillen, X. (2014-06)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The hydro-chemical (CH) interaction between swelling Eurobitum bituminized radioactive waste (BW) and Boom Clay was investigated to assess the feasibility of geological disposal for the long-term management of this waste. ...
  • Gas migration in a Cenozoic clay: experimental results and numerical modelling 

    González Blanco, Laura; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Jommi, Cristina; Li, Xiang Ling; Sillen, X. (Elsevier, 2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Gas migration through a potential host clay formation for the geological disposal of radioactive waste in Belgium is experimentally investigated in the laboratory, and numerical modelling is performed to help in the ...
  • Themed issue on selected papers SEG2015 — Part I 

    Sánchez, Marcelo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (Elsevier, 2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This themed issue of Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment ‘SEG-2015-Part I’,presents papers selected from abstracts submitted to the Symposium on Energy Geotechnics (SEG-2015) held in Barcelona, Spain, between June ...
  • Yielding of rockfill in relative humidity-controlled triaxial experiments 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Ortega, Enrique (2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The paper reports the results of suction controlled triaxial tests performed on compacted samples of two well graded granular materials in the range of coarse sand-medium gravel particle sizes: a quartzitic slate and a ...
  • Vertical facing panel-joint gap analysis for steel-seinforced soil walls 

    Puig Damians, Ivan; Bathurst, Richard; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (2016-08)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper reports the results of a numerical parametric study focused on the prediction of vertical load distribution and vertical gap compression between precast concrete facing panel units in steel-reinforced soil walls ...
  • Artificial ground freezing of a volcanic ash: laboratory tests and modelling 

    Casini, F.; Gens Solé, Antonio; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Viggiani, Giulia M.B. (2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The use of artificial ground freezing (AGF) to form earth support systems has had applications worldwide. These cover a variety of construction problems, including the formation of frozen earth walls to support deep ...
