    • Characterising the collapsible response of an in-situ compacted silt 

      Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Suriol Castellví, Josep (CRC Press, 2009)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The paper presents selected experimental results of the microstructure, the hydro-mechanical properties and the volume change response along wetting and drying paths of a compacted silt. The material was recovered from a ...
    • Exploring the mechanical response of low-carbon soil improvement mixtures 

      Fraccica, Alessandro; Spagnoli, Giovanni; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés (2022-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      As society moves towards decarbonisation, it is important to assess the hydromechanical behaviour of binders that could offer a low-carbon alternative to Portland cement in ground improvement technologies. This work considers ...
    • Parameter calibration for hydro-mechanical modelling using numerical simulations of test results 

      Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Suriol Castellví, Josep (Taylor & Francis, 2010)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The paper reports an experimental study and parameter calibration exercise centred on the hydro-mechanical response of an unsaturated soil. The study benefits from compacted silt samples retrieved from a fully instrumented ...

    • The effect of curing conditions on the hydromechanical properties of a metakaolin-based soilcrete 

      Spagnoli, Giovanni; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fraccica, Alessandro; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés (Thomas Telford, 2022-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      An attractive approach to reduce the carbon dioxide footprint of deep soil mixing (DSM) is to replace Portland cement-based binders by geopolymers based on metakaolin. Safe design requires a good understanding of the ...
    • Unconfined compressive strength of sand-fines mixtures treated with chemical grouts 

      Spagnoli, Giovanni; Seidl, W.; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés; López López, José (CRC Press, 2021)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Ground improvement by grouting is one of the methods applicable to solve problems connected to foundations, open cut excavations and tunnelling. The improvement of soils is in terms of reduced permeability and increased ...
    • Water retention properties of a compacted clayey silt including void ratio dependency and microstructural features 

      Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Della Cecchia, Gabriele; Jommi, Cristina; Suriol Castellví, Josep; Lloret Morancho, Antonio (Springer, 2012)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      An experimental study focused on the water retention properties of a compacted clayey silt with dominant bimodal pore size distribution is reported. A water retention model accounting for soil microstructural features and ...
