      The mechanical behaviour of granular materials depends on their grading. Crushing of particles under compression or shear modifies the grain size distribution, with a tendency for the percentage of fine material to increase. ...
    • Hydromechanical behaviour of a silty sand from a steep slope triggered by artificial rainfall : from unsaturated to saturated conditions 

      Casini, Francesca; Serri, Víctor; Springman, Sarah Marcella (2013-01)

      This paper presents an experimental investigation aimed at studying the hydromechanical behaviour of a silty sand from a steep slope in Ruedlingen in the northeast of Switzerland, where a landslide-triggering experiment ...
    • 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 ...
