    • Gb-SAR interferometry displacement measurements during dewatering in construction works : case of La Sagrera railway station in Barcelona, Spain 

      Serrano Juan, Alejandro; Vázquez Suñé, Enric; Montserrat, Oriol; Crosetto, Michele; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto; Criollo, Rotman; Pujades, E; Velasco Mansilla, Domitila Violeta; García Gil, Alejandro; García Alcaraz, María del Mar (2016-04-29)
      Article
      Open Access
      Construction processes require monitoring to ensure safety and to control the new and existing structures. Traditional monitoring is based on land surveys and geotechnical instruments and only allows for point-like ...
    • Highly expansive granular mixtures 

      Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian (CRC Press, 2014)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The paper describes the behavior of mixtures of highly compacted bentonite pellets. They are considered as a suitable impervious and tight barrier for nuclear waste disposal. Laboratory experiments aimed at identifying the ...
    • Hydro-mechanical behaviour of bentonite pellet mixtures 

      Hoffmann Jauge, Christian; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (Elsevier, 2007)
      Article
      Open Access
      Granular mixtures made of high-density pellets of bentonite are being evaluated as an alternative buffer material for waste isolation. Ease of handling is an often-mentioned advantage. The paper described the experimental ...
    • Hydromechanical behaviour of compacted granular expansive mixtures: experimental and constitutive study 

      Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian (2011-04-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Compacted granular mixtures of high-density bentonite pellets have been evaluated as an alternative buffer material to fill the empty space around nuclear waste disposal canisters in horizontal drifts. Despite the obvious ...
    • Modelling the field behaviour of a granular expansive barrier 

      Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Hoffmann Jauge, Christian (Elsevier, 2007)
      Article
      Open Access
      The large scale ‘‘Engineered Barrier’’ (EB) experiment, performed at the Mont Terri Underground Laboratory is described. A coupled hydromechanical model is then used to simulate the test performance. Constitutive parameters ...

    • Small scale slope failure benchmark test: modelling and prediction 

      Hoffmann Jauge, Christian; Meler Payán, Nuria; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Elsevier, 2014)
      Article
      Open Access
      A benchmark was designed with the aim of evaluating the capabilities of current modelling techniques and computational codes to reproduce slope failures. Laboratory tests and three instrumented small scale experiments of ...
