  • DEM modelling of cone penetration tests in a double-porosity crushable granular material 

    Ciantia, Matteo Oryem; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Butlanska, Joanna; Gens Solé, Antonio (2016-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A three-dimensional discrete element model is used to investigate the effect of grain crushing on the tip resistance measured by cone penetration tests (CPT) in calibration chambers. To do that a discrete analogue of pumice ...
  • Thrust and torque components on mixed-face EPB drives 

    González Paez, Claudia; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (2016-08)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this communication we propose a method to estimate net thrust and torque applied at the excavation front by cutting tools from EPB machines when they are working in mixed faces constituted by soils and soft rock. The ...
  • Performance of the Opalinus Clay under thermal loading: experimental results from Mont Terri rock laboratory (Switzerland) 

    Gens Solé, Antonio; Wieczorek, Klaus; Gaus, Irina; Garitte, Benoit; Mayor, Juan Carlos; Schuster, Kristof; Armand, G.; Garcia Siñeriz, Jose luis; Trickl, Thomas (2017-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The paper presents an overview of the behaviour of Opalinus Clay under thermal loading as observed in three in situ heating tests performed in the Mont Terri rock laboratory: HE-B, HE-D and HE-E. The three tests are summarily ...
  • Gb-SAR interferometry displacement measurements during dewatering in construction works : case of La Sagrera railway station in Barcelona, Spain 

    Serrano Juan, Alejandro; Vázquez Suñé, Enric; Montserrat, Oriol; Crosetto, Michele; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Criollo, Rotman; Pujades, E; Velasco Mansilla, Domitila Violeta; García Gil, Alejandro; García Alcaraz, María del Mar (2016-04-29)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Construction processes require monitoring to ensure safety and to control the new and existing structures. Traditional monitoring is based on land surveys and geotechnical instruments and only allows for point-like ...
  • Undergraduate geotechnical engineering education of the 21st century 

    Wirth, Xenia; Jiang, Ning-Jun; Silva, Talia da; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Della Vecchia, G. (2016-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Forum papers are thought-provoking opinion pieces or essays founded in fact, sometimes containing speculation, on a civil engineering topic of general interest and relevance to the readership of the journal.
  • Coupled THM modelling of engineered barriers for the final disposal of spent nuclear fuel isolation 

    Toprak, Erdem; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Pintado, X. (London: The Geological Society, 2016-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper describes the thermohydromechanical (THM) simulation of engineered barrier systems (EBS) for the final disposal of nuclear spent fuel in Finland. The bentonite barriers were simulated with the Barcelona Basic ...
  • A cross-anisotropic formulation for elasto-plastic models 

    Mánica Malcom, Miguel Ángel; Gens Solé, Antonio; Vaunat, Jean; Ruiz Restrepo, Daniel Felipe (2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A cross-anisotropic formulation for elasto-plastic constitutive models based on a non-uniform scaling of the stress tensor is described. Taking advantage of the material symmetries characterising cross-anisotropy, only two ...
  • Themed issue on selected papers SEG2015: part II 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Sánchez, Marcelo (Elsevier, 2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This themed issue of Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment ‘SEG-2015-Part II’, presents papers selected from extended abstracts submitted to the Symposium on Energy Geotechnics (SEG-2015) held in the Civil Engineering ...
  • Effect of temperature induced excess porewater pressures on the shaft bearing capacity of geothermal piles 

    Fuentes, Raúl; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Elsevier, 2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Changes in temperature in clays of low permeability typically induce excess porewater pressures. In the context of geothermal piles this effect has typically been overlooked since most installations have occurred in soils ...
  • A time-dependent anisotropic model for argillaceous rocks: application to an underground excavation in Callovo-Oxfordian claystone 

    Mánica Malcom, Miguel Ángel; Gens Solé, Antonio; Vaunat, Jean; Ruiz Restrepo, Daniel Felipe (2017-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The paper presents a constitutive model for argillaceous rocks, developed within the framework of elastoplasticity, that includes a number of features that are relevant for a satisfactory description of their hydromechanical ...
