Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry (EDP Sciences, 2019)
Open AccessWhile 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 ...
Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry (Edizioni AGI, 2022)
Open AccessIl rinforzo delle radici nel terreno è stato valutato in letteratura, a livello di sperimentazione di laboratorio, principalmente tramite percorsi di sollecitazione di compressione per carico o tramite prove di taglio ...
Tensile strength of a compacted vegetated soil: laboratory results and reinforcement interpretation Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry (Elsevier, 2022-06)
Restricted access - publisher's policySo far, root reinforcement on soil has been primarily evaluated through direct shear and roots pull-out tests, while the effect of other stress paths and the behaviour at the soil–root¿ interface are still poorly investigated. ...
Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry; Sondon Sansó, Mercedes; Gandarillas, Luis (EDP Sciences, 2020-10)
Open AccessVegetated 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 ...
