  • Integration of continuous seismic profiling in geotechnical investigations off the Belgian coast in Papers.
  • A comprehensive geotechnical survey for the offshore extention of Zeebrugge harbour illustrates some possibilities and limitations of seismic profiling in Belgian offshore areas and proves a striking example of its successful integration
  • in geotechnical investigations.
  • Geotechniek en geologie rondom's-Gravenhage. (Geotechnics and geology of the surroundings of The Hague, The Netherlands)
  • This article deals with the subsoil conditions in The Hague from a geotechnical point of view. (AIS).
  • Weathering efffects on the geotechnical properties of argillaceous sediments in tropical environments and their geomorphological implications
  • Badland ; Barbados ; Clay ; Geotechnics ; Microstructure ; Model ; Soil mechanics ; Soil properties ; Taiwan ; Tropical zone ; Weathering
  • This paper reports the results of research undertaken to examine some of the important changes that occur in the geotechnical properties of argillaceous sediments with a well developed, pervasive fabric, under tropical weathering conditions
  • of the geotechnical response of the sediments to weathering.
  • Priorities for urban expansion within the PWV metropolitan region : the primacy of geotechnical constraints
  • Applied geology ; Classification ; Dolostone ; Geotechnics ; Housing ; Johannesburg ; South Africa ; Transvaal ; Urban construction ; Urban development ; Witwatersrand
  • The provision of low cost housing is one of the most urgent problems facing the development of the Pretoria-Witwatersrand-Vaal Triangle metropolitan complex. Geotechnical problems, notably the presence of dolomite must be taken into account when
  • A new model to analyse the impact of woody riparian vegetation on the geotechnical stability of riverbanks
  • Bank erosion ; Canada ; Geotechnics ; Impact ; Model ; Ontario ; Riparian vegetation ; Stream ; Tree
  • The AA. present a geotechnical stability analysis for the planar failure of riverbanks, which incorporates the effects of root reinforcement and surcharge for mature stands of woody riparian vegetation. The analysis relies on a new method
  • A review of the influence of freeze-thaw cycles on soil geotechnical properties
  • Canada ; Cold area ; Freeze-thaw cycle ; Geotechnics ; Periglacial features ; Permafrost ; Quebec ; Soil properties
  • Freeze-thaw cycling affects the geotechnical properties of soils and must be taken into account when selecting soil parameters for stability and deformation analysis of slopes, embankments and cuts in cold regions, especially those underlain
  • An analysis of mechanisms of ice-wedge casting based on geotechnical centrifuge simulations
  • Experimentation ; Geotechnics ; Ice wedge ; Model ; Periglacial features ; Permafrost ; Quaternary
  • The AA. interpret the outcomes of scaled geotechnical centrifuge simulation of ice-wedge casting in terms of the likely significance of Quaternary ice-wedge pseudomorphs observed within different host sediments. In the 6 experiments reported
  • Some geotechnical properties of clayey soils of weathered serpentinite
  • Clay mineral ; Geotechnics ; Honshu ; Japan ; Mass movement ; Slope ; Slope dynamics ; Soil properties ; Weathering
  • As a first step towards clarifying weathering, strength, and slope instability relations on slopes made of serpentinite, some geotechnical properties of weathered soil derived from serpentinite in the Oe-yama and Seki-no-miya districts of central
  • A future oceanographic-geotechnical system of research and observation
  • Geotechnical properties of the Danubian lowland loess soils in the Slovak Carpathians in Distribution and chronological problems of loess.
  • of investigation, planning and designing, but also in more exact geotechnical calculations.
  • Australia ; Bank erosion ; Geotechnics ; Mass movement ; Model ; New South Wales ; Riparian vegetation ; Stream
  • Plants interact with and modify the processes of riverbank erosion by altering bank hydrology, flow hydraulics and bank geotechnical properties. The physically based slope stability model GWEDGEM was used to assess how changes in bank geotechnical
  • Failure of peat-covered hillslopes at Dooncarton Mountain, Co. Mayo, Ireland : analysis of topographic and geotechnical factors
  • Geotechnics ; Heavy rain ; Human impact ; Ireland ; Mass movement ; Peat ; Precipitation ; Slope ; Slope gradient ; Soil properties
  • The hydrogeological and geotechnical parameters as agents for gully-type erosion in the rain-forest belt of Nigeria
  • strongly lie in the hydrogeological and geotechnical properties of a complex aquifer system. These properties are related to the high hydrostatic pressures in aquifers that reduce the effective stress of inconsolidated coarse sands, thereby leading
  • Morphometric and geotechnical controls of debris flow activity, southern Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Canada
  • British Columbia ; Canada ; Debris flow ; Geomorphometry ; Geotechnics ; Pic discharge ; Regression analysis ; Statistics ; Watershed
  • This paper presents preliminary results from a study, based on 34 debris flow basins in the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia, in which the AA. use both morphometric and geotechnical variables to characterize the intensity of the supply
  • Geotechnical properties of rock masses : their control on slope form and mechanisms of change along the Napier Range, Western Australia
  • Australia ; Earth surface processes ; Geotechnics ; Lithology ; Slope ; Slope dynamics ; Western Australia
  • The results presented here highlight the importance of synthesising standard geomorphological site investigation techniques with quantifiable rock geotechnical parameters, in order to understand slope form and development. Field research has been
  • Geotechnical model for great plains hummocky moraine formed by till deformation below stagnant ice
  • Aerial photography ; Geotechnics ; Glacial features ; Kettle ; Model ; Moraine ; North America
  • by clay-rich till. In this paper, the AA. test the postulated subglacial origin of hummocky moraine using a geotechnical model of a deforming soil (till). The model confirms that hummocky topography can be the result of failure and deformation of fine
  • By using glaciological and geotechnical theory, the AA. show that the expression of these deformational styles in East Anglia is a natural response to the stress fields imposed by the ice-sheet, and that in consequence their spatial relationships
  • are explicable. The depth of deformation is related to the geotechnical properties of till and substrate, the stress and effective stress fields, and found to be consistent with observations.
  • Stability of waste spoils in an area strip mine-geological and geotechnical considerations
