    Fragmentation in rockfalls reduces the size of the blocks and increases the number of fragments. It affects the runout and the impact energies, having implications in the associated hazard and therefore in the subsequent ...
  • Using several monitoring techniques to measure the rock mass deformation in the Montserrat Massif 

    Janeras Casanova, Marc; Jara Salvador, José Antonio; López Pacheco, Ferran; Marturiá Alavedra, Jordi; Royan, Manuel J.; Vilaplana Fernández, Joan Manuel; Aguasca Solé, Alberto; Fabregas Canovas, Francisco Javier; Cabranes, Fabián; Gili Ripoll, José Antonio (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2015)

    Montserrat Mountain is located near Barcelona in Catalonia, at the north-east cornerof Spain, and its massif is formed by conglomerate interleaved by siltstone/sandstone withsteep slopes very prone to rock ...
  • Applying Bayesian updating to CPT data analysis 

    Collico, Stefano; Pérez, N.; Devincenzi, M.J.; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos (CRC Press, 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Evaluation of geotechnical parameters on a project site is a necessary step in geotechnical engineering. However, due to the inherent variability of soil properties and the lack of data, many unavoidable uncertainties arise ...
  • Sample quality examination on silty soils 

    Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Pineda Jiménez, Jubert Andrés; Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Devincenzi, M.J.; Pérez, N. (Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 2015)
    Conference lecture

    Mediterranean deltaic environments typically produce soil deposits in which silts dominate, granular intercalations are frequent and the mineralogy includes an important carbonate fraction. One question still open is what ...
  • Dynamics of slow and fast landslides 

    Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Alvarado Bueno, Mauricio; García Núñez, Luis Miguel (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The paper discusses some factors that control the shearing soil behaviour and the dynamics of landslides: strain-, strain rate-, and temperature effects. The strain rate effect on residual strength is discussed through ...
  • The effect of curing conditions on the hydromechanical properties of a metakaolin-based soilcrete 

    Spagnoli, Giovanni; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fraccica, Alessandro; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gómez Bonilla, Rodrigo Andrés (Thomas Telford, 2021-01)
    Article

    An attractive approach to reduce the carbon dioxide footprint of deep soil mixing (DSM) is to replace Portland cement-based binders by geopolymers based on metakaolin. Safe design requires a good understanding of the ...
  • Creep effects on the thermo-hydro-mechanical responses of Callovo-Oxfordian claystone 

    Vu, Minh-Ngoc; Souley, Mountaka; Alonso, Matías; Vaunat, Jean; Gens Solé, Antonio; Plúa, Carlos; de Lesquen, Christophe; Armand, G. (Springer, 2021)

    In France, a deep geological disposal for high-level radioactive waste (HLW) and intermediate level long life radioactive waste (IL-LLW) called Cigéo is planned to be constructed in a deep Callovo-Oxfordian claystone (COx) ...
  • Geomechanics of shale repositories: mechanical behavior and modeling

    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This chapter presents an overview of modeling frameworks available within the theory of elastoplasticity and able to capture main features of shale behavior including: yield under compression, failure under deviatoric ...
  • Analysis and modelling of longitudinal deformation profiles of tunnels excavated in strain-softening time-dependent rock masses 

    Song, Fei; Rodríguez Dono, Alfonso; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Zhong, Zhen (Elsevier, 2020-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Rock mass behaviour model selection, in particular, to represent the post-failure behaviour and time-dependent behaviour of rock masses, are critical issues in the correct application of tunnelling design techniques such ...
  • Vegetation filtering using colour for monitoring applications from photogrammetric data 

    Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Prades Valls, Albert; Buill Pozuelo, Felipe (Scitepress, 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Photogrammetry is one of the widest techniques used to monitor terrain changes which occur due to natural process and geological natural risk zones. In order to carry out terrain monitoring, it is necessary to eliminate ...
  • Size effect on the hydraulic behavior of fluid flow through a single rough-walled fracture 

    Zhong, Zhen; Wang, Lei; Song, Leibo; Gao, Chao; Hu, Yunjin; Gao, Huicai; Song, Fei; Rodríguez Dono, Alfonso; Lou, Rong (Elsevier, 2021-04)
    Article
