    • 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 ...
    • 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)

      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 ...
