    • Monitoring of a full-scale embankment experiment regarding soil–vegetation–atmosphere interactions 

      Oorthuis Gómez, Raül; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Fraccica, Alessandro; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Moya Sánchez, José; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Vaunat, Jean (2018-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      Slope mass-wasting like shallow slides are mostly triggered by climate effects, such as rainfall, and soil–vegetation–atmosphere (SVA) interactions play a key role. SVA interactions are studied by a full-scale embankment ...
    • Multi-scale effects on the hydraulic behaviour of a root-permeated and compacted soil 

      Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry (EDP Sciences, 2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      While roots have been generally proved to be beneficial to soil mechanical behaviour, different and counterposed results have been found when investigating their effects on soil hydraulic response. Roots affect the ...
    • Pérdida de suelo en laderas bajo cambio climático. procesos físicos, modelación predictiva y posibles estrategias de mitigación : el proyecto de investigación “Smucphy” 

      Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Vaunat, Jean; Oorthuis Gómez, Raül; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Moya Sánchez, José; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Fraccica, Alessandro; Pinyol Guamis, Jordi; Gonzalez Parés, Marta; Buill Pozuelo, Felipe; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Abanco Martínez de Arenzana, Claudia; Martínez Bofill, Joan; Raïmat, Carles; Copons Llorens, Ramon (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2017)

      RESUMEN: Este proyecto de investigación estudia los mecanismos de la pérdida de suelos en zonas montañosas mediante un método multidisciplinar y el trabajo a diferentes escalas. Uno de los objetivos principales es analizar ...
    • Slope orientation and vegetation effects on soil thermo-hydraulic behavior: an experimental study 

      Oorthuis Gómez, Raül; Vaunat, Jean; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Moya Sánchez, José; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Fraccica, Alessandro (2021-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The stability and erosion of natural and man-made slopes is influenced by soil-vegetation-atmosphere interactions and the thermo-hydro-mechanical slope conditions. Understanding such interactions at the source of slope ...
    • Tensile strength of a vegetated and partially saturated soil 

      Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry; Sondon Sansó, Mercedes; Gandarillas, Luis (EDP Sciences, 2020-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Vegetated soil’s shear strength has been usually assessed through direct shear tests and under triaxial compression stress paths while less is known about its behaviour under tensile stress. Tensile strength and shrinkage-induced ...
    • TERRE project: interplay between unsaturated soil mechanics and low-carbon geotechnical engineering 

      Tarantino, A; El Mountassir, G.; Wheeler, Simon; Gallipoli, Domenico; Augarde, Charles; Urciuoli, Gianfranco; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Priegue Mayán, Ángel Diego; Fraccica, Alessandro; Karagianni, Pavlina (EDP Sciences, 2020-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      The geotechnical construction industry is a major component of the overall construction sector and is strategically important in infrastructure development (transportation, flood and landslide protection, building foundations, ...
