    Slope mass-wasting triggered by rainfall is a complex phenomenon and representsan important hazard in most mountainous regions. In-situ monitoring of the involved processes is difficult due to harsh environmental conditions ...
  • Eco-trench: a novel trench solution based on reusing excavated material and a finishing layer of expansive concrete 

    Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo; Fernandez Rubio, Cristina; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (Instituto Técnico de la Construcción y del Cemento, 2017-10)
    Article
