  • Comparison of finite element and finite difference modelling results with measured performance of a reinforced soil wall 

    Puig Damians, Ivan; Bathurst, Richard; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro; Lloret Morancho, Antonio (2014)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The performance of a metallic reinforced soil segmental retaining wall is examined in a systematic manner using two numerical modelling approaches. Finite element modelling was carried out using the commercial program ...
  • A bridge foundation analysis 

    Puig Damians, Ivan; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (2011)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This document presents the analysis with CODE_BRIGHT finite element program of a geotechnical case. The problem analyzed is related to a mechanical analysis of soilstructure interaction considering different alternatives ...
  • Modeling of gas migration through low-permeability clay using information on pressure and deformation from fast air injection tests 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Senger, Rainer; Marschall, Paul (2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The characterization of gas migration through low-permeability clay formations has been a focus of R&D programs for radioactive waste disposal, which is also of great importance for shale-gas exploration, and cap-rock ...
  • Caracterización y comportamiento hidro-mecánico de un limo arcilloso compactado 

    Buenfil, Carlos; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Se presentan resultados de un estudio experimental del acoplamiento hidromecánico de un limo arcilloso de baja plasticidad ligeramente compactado, sometido a compresión isótropa bajo succión controlada. Los ensayos se han ...
  • Run-out of landslides in brittle soils: an MPM anlysis 

    Yerro Colom, Alba; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè (CRC Press, 2014)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this paper a slope stability problem due to an increase of the pore pressure is analysed by means of the material point method (MPM). A strain softening model is implemented and the progressive failure is examined in ...
  • Patterns of cracking in soils due to drying and wetting cycles 

    Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Cordero Arias, Josbel Andreina; Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín; Prat Catalán, Pere (CRC Press, 2014)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    There is a well reported evidence of cracking in clayey or silty soils when drying. Shrinkage in the soil mass and also boundary conditions generate a nonhomogeneous stress state locally producing tensile stresses and ...
  • Anisotropic features on the thermal conductivity of a deep argillaceous formation 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Lima, Analice; Van Baelen, H; Sillen, X.; Li, Xiang Ling (IOS Press, 2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    An experimental study on Ypresian clays – one of the potential deep and sedimentary clay formations in Belgium for the geological disposal of heat-emitting radioactive waste – has been undertaken to systematically study ...
  • Drying cracks in soils: current advances and challenges 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Sanchez, Marcelo; Kim, Sewon; Guimarães, Leonardo do N; Zielinski, Marcin; Atique, Alvis; Manzoli, Osvaldo (2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents some current advances and challenges related to the behavior of soil subjected to drying and the consequent formation and propagation of cracks in the soil mass. Typical geotechnical problems associated ...
  • Gas migration and coupled hydro-mechanical issues in claystones for radioactive waste disposal at great depth 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; González Blanco, Laura; Marschall, Paul (European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), 2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The hydro-mechanical behaviour of shales is becoming an important issue in current energy-related geomechanical investigations, such as CO2 sequestration, extraction of gas shale and nuclear waste geological storage. ...
  • Cracking behaviour of silty clay soil under drying-wetting cycles 

    Cordero Arias, Josbel Andreina; Prat Catalán, Pere; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín (Librairie Ifsttar, 2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents the results and analysis of cracking tests carried on samples of silty clay which were subjected to a drying-wetting-drying cycle to study the effect of cyclic change of moisture on the cracking behaviour. ...
