    • Modelització de terraplens sobre sòls argilosos reforçats amb columnes de graves 

      Rofes Ruiz, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06-10)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Anàlisi del la modelització dels terraplens sobre sòls argilosos reforçats amb columnes de graves per la obtenció d'un model on la discretització de les columnes de graves pugui ser substituïda per un àrea equivalent. El ...
    • Modified unit cell approach for modelling geosynthetic-reinforced column-supported embankments 

      Yu, Yan; Bathurst, Richard; Puig Damians, Ivan (2016-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      Geosynthetic-reinforced and column-supported (GRCS) embankments have proven to be an effective construction technique for fills on soft foundations. The paper introduces a modified unit cell approach to model GRCS embankments ...
    • 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 ...
    • Numerical analysis of the behaviour of embankments constructed with expansive soils 

      Ortega, J.J.; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (Taylor & Francis, 2010)
      Conference report

      The recent advances made in modern Unsaturated Soil Mechanics have permitted the development of new analysis methods for the prediction of the behaviour of embankments and other earth structures subject to changes in ...
    • Three-dimensional modelling of an embankment built on a soft soil improved with prefabricated vertical drains 

      Venda Oliveira, P.J.; Cruz, R.F.P.M.L.; Lemos, L.J.L.; Almeida e Sousa, J.N.V. (CIMNE, 2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This work compares the field measurements of a non-symmetric embankment built on a Portuguese soft soil improved with prefabricated vertical drains (PVDs), with the numerical predictions of a 3D modelling where the PVDs ...
    • Water retention behaviour of an embankment model 

      Zielinski, M.; Sánchez, Marcelo; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Sentenac, P. (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2011)
      Conference lecture

      The depth of the unsaturated zone is strongly influenced by environmental factors. Approximately two-thirds of the world has sufficiently hot or arid climatic conditions so that the unsaturated zone forms more than a ...
