    • Cat scanner as a tool for geotechnical sample inspection 

      Sau Valenzuela, Núria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-11-22)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      X-ray computed tomography (CT) provides nondestructive three-dimensional visualization and characterization, creating images that map the variation of X-ray attenuation within objects, which relates closely to bulk ...
    • Coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical behaviour of a deep clay 

      Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Van Baelen, H (EDP Sciences, 2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      An experimental study on Ypresian clays –one of the potential deep formations in Belgium for the geological disposal of heat-emitting radioactive waste– was undertaken to systematically study its thermal properties and ...

      Sau Valenzuela, Núria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-02-18)
      Minor thesis
      Open Access
      En el presente estudio se determina la parametrización geotécnica y el modelo constitutivo óptimos a emplear en la modelización numérica, mediante el programa PLAXIS 2D v.9.0, de una excavación apantallada, a partir de la ...
    • Restoring initial conditions in a deep argillaceous formation with induced suction on retrieval 

      Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Van Baelen, H (EDP Sciences, 2020-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      The deep and plastic Ypresian clays (Ycs) are one of the potential host rock formations in Belgium for the geological disposal of heat-emitting radioactive waste. Consequently, their thermo-hydro-mechanical behaviour has ...
    • Sample quality examination on silty soils 

      Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Pineda Jiménez, Jubert Andrés; Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Devincenzi, M.J.; Pérez, N. (Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 2015)
      Conference lecture

      Mediterranean deltaic environments typically produce soil deposits in which silts dominate, granular intercalations are frequent and the mineralogy includes an important carbonate fraction. One question still open is what ...
    • Testing block samples from silty deposits 

      Pineda Jiménez, Jubert Andrés; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Gens Solé, Antonio; Pérez, Norma (2012)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The paper describes the results of a comprehensive experimental program aimed to characterize block samples of silty deposits obtained from the deltaic zone of the Llobregat River ( Barcelona).Undisturbed block samples ...
