    • Characterisation of the multi-scale fabric features of high plasticity clays 

      Cotecchia, Federica; Guglielmi, S.; Cafaro, F.; Gens Solé, Antonio (Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 2019-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      An investigation of the microstructural features of a high-plasticity clay, in both its natural conditions and reconstituted in the laboratory, is described. Scanning electron microscopy is used here to characterise the ...
    • Investigation of the evolution of clay microstructure under different loading paths and impact on constitutive modelling 

      Cotecchia, Federica; Guglielmi, S.; Gens Solé, Antonio (Iris Publishers LLC, 2020-04)
      Article
      Open Access
      Part of a research programme concerning the investigation of the evolution of clay microstructure under different loading paths is presented. The material is a stiff over consolidated natural clay, strongly bonded by ...
    • Numerical modelling of slope–vegetation–atmosphere interaction: an overview 

      Elia, Gaetano; Cotecchia, Federica; Pedone, Giuseppe; Vaunat, Jean; Vardon, Philip J.; Pereira, Carlos; Springman, Sarah Marcella; Rouainia, M.; Van Esch, John; Koda, Eugeniusz; Josifovski, Josif; Nocilla, Alessandra; Askarinejad, Amin; Stirling, Ross; Helm, Peter; Lollino, Piernicola; Osinski, Piotr (2017-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      The behaviour of natural and artificial slopes is controlled by their thermo-hydro-mechanical conditions and by soil–vegetation–atmosphere interaction. Porewater pressure changes within a slope related to variable ...
