    The construction of an underground car park required an excavation in sand under the water table adjacent to the cathedral of Buen Pastor in San Sebastián, Spain. Because of the close proximity of the cathedral and other ...
  • Experimental techniques for multi-scale description of soil fabric and its dual pore network 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Musso, Guido; Jommi, Cristina (ALERT Geomaterials, 2012-10)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Fabric affects many aspects of soil mechanical behaviour. When transport processes are of concern, its dual, the pore network, is the key aspect ruling the soil properties of interest. In this chapter, a review of a few ...
  • Experimental techniques for hydromechanical and electro-chemo-hydraulic processes 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Musso, Guido; Jommi, Cristina (ALERT Geomaterials, 2012-10)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter presents the fundamentals behind selected experimental techniques used to control and monitor some coupled multi-physics processes. The starting point is the review of the experimental techniques for coupled ...
  • Physical models at increasing scale and role of theoretical / numerical back-analyses 

    Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Musso, Guido; Jommi, Cristina (ALERT Geomaterials, 2012-10)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In spite of advancements in the techniques for the study of thermo-hydro-chemomechanical behaviour of geomaterials at the REV scale, the latter might not provide an exhaustive picture of transport processes in soil, when ...

    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The calculation of pore water pressure distribution in a slope partially submerged and subjected to a drawdown is analyzed in this chapter. Drawdown phenomenon is a critical situation for the stability of slopes of earth ...
  • The Material Point Method and the analysis of dams and dam failures 

    Zabala García, Francisco; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (CRC Press, 2012)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper describes the application of the Material Point Method to the simulation of an earthdam failure case and the evaluation of the seismic response of concrete-faced dams. Results for the historical failure case of ...
