    • Artificial ground freezing of a volcanic ash: laboratory tests and modelling 

      Casini, F.; Gens Solé, Antonio; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Viggiani, Giulia M.B. (2016-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      The use of artificial ground freezing (AGF) to form earth support systems has had applications worldwide. These cover a variety of construction problems, including the formation of frozen earth walls to support deep ...

      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. ...
    • Coupled phenomena induced by freezing in a granular material 

      Casini, Francesca; Gens Solé, Antonio; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Viggiani, Giulia M.B. (2013)

      Artificial Ground Freezing (AGF) is a controllable process that can be used by engineers to stabilise temporarily the ground, provide structural support and/or exclude groundwater from an excavation until construction of ...
    • Freezing-thawing tests on natural pyroclastic samples 

      Pelaez, R.R; Casini, Francesca; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Gens Solé, Antonio; Viggiani, Giulia M.B. (CRC Press, 2014)
