    • Análisis tenso-deformacional en rotura y condiciones de seguridad de pantallas en voladizo y ancladas. Comparación con métodos clásicos 

      Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-10-22)
      Minor thesis
      Open Access
      El uso de métodos analíticos clásicos para el diseño de pantallas continúa siendo hoy día una herramienta habitual y extendida debido a su sencillez y fiabilidad. Las hipótesis adoptadas en los métodos clásicos junto con ...
    • Análisis THM de la interacción suelo-atmósfera en suelos arcillosos sometidos a desecación 

      Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-03-07)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Coupled processes between the soil and the atmosphere control soil water evaporation in its first stage, which leads to soil shrinkage and cracking by drying. However, soil-atmosphere interaction has received little attention ...
    • 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)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      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. ...
    • Detección de grietas por desecación en arcillas mediante GPR 

      Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-01)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
    • Experimental analysis of 3D cracking in drying soils using ground-penetrating radar 

      Levatti, Hector Ulises; Prat Catalán, Pere; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín; Cordero Arias, Josbel Andreina (2017-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper describes the capabilities of a novel technique to investigate crack formation and propagation in drying soils. The technique is a relatively simple, non-destructive indirect technique using a ground-penetrating-radar ...
    • Large test to study the role of soil-air interaction in soil cracking 

      Cordero Arias, Josbel Andreina; Prat Catalán, Pere; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín (The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), 2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Soil surfaces in contact with the atmosphere are interfaces where different processes play an important role in triggering the formation of cracks due to desiccation. Empirical evidence shows that variables such as solar ...
    • 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)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      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 ...
    • Proyecto constructivo del viaducto sobre la riera de Santa Anna l.A.V. Barcelona – Frontera Francesa 

      Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-10-17)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      El presente documento consiste en el Proyecto Final de Carrera (PFC) necesario para finalizar los estudios de Ingeniería de Caminos, Canales y Puertos cursados la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales ...
    • Soil surface boundary condition in desiccating soils 

      Cuadrado Cabello, Agustín; Encalada López, David Alejandro; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Prat Catalán, Pere (The Icelandic Geotechnical Society (IGS), 2019)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Soils undergoing desiccation exhibit shrinkage and eventually cracking. That may become an environmental problem in practical applications. From a Geotechnical perspective, it is possible to solve the corresponding ...
