  1. 1. Modelling of Groundwater Conditions in Silts and Fine Sands. A Study of Induced Groundwater Changes Based on Laboratory and Full-Scale Field Tests

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Marius Tremblay; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1995]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; soil mechanics; groundwater; silt; fine sand; groundwater conditions; pore pressure; soil matric suction; partially saturated soil; numerical simulation; laboratory tests; field tests;

    Abstract : Every day, geotechnical engineers have to deal with groundwater problems. In order to find suitable solutions to these problems, modelling of the groundwater conditions and their variations in time has to be performed. A study of the groundwater conditions in silts and fine sands was made including laboratory and full-scale field tests. READ MORE

  2. 2. Moisture Influence on Structural Behaviour of Pavements Field and Laboratory Investigations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Farhad Salour; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Falling Weight Deflectometer FWD ; backcalculation; unbound material; subgrade; seasonal variation; moisture content; spring-thaw; drainage; pavement stiffness; field test; pavement instrumentation; resilient modulus; permanent deformation; repeated load triaxial test; unsaturated soil; matric suction.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : The structural behaviour of pavements in cold regions can considerably be affected by seasonal variation in environmental factors such as temperature and moisture content. Along with the destructive effect of heavy traffic loads, climatic and environmental factors can considerably contribute to pavement deterioration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hydraulic Conductivity of Saturated Sand-Bentonite mixtures

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Malin Sundsten; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; hydraulic conductivity; dry density; bentonite; foundry green sand; quarry sand; laboratory tests; field tests; landfill barrier; design;

    Abstract : The implementation of the EC directive concerning landfill liners and covers sets stricter technical and environmental requirements for landfill barriers. It is therefore essential to identify suitable materials that fulfil these requirements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hole deviations in percussion drilling and control measures : theoretical and field studies

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Thomson Sinkala; [1989]
    Keywords : Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik; Mining and Rock Engineering;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we study the problem of hole deviations in percussive drilling and present a solution to minimize the deviations. Field tests are performed to study the interactive behaviour of drilling parameters. READ MORE
