  1. 1. Mechanical Behavior of Tailings Laboratory Tests from a Swedish Tailings Dam

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Riaz Bhanbhro; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tailings dams; Tailings; Mechanical Behavior; Oedometer; Direct Shear; Triaxial; Shear strength; Soil Mechanics; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : Tailings is leftover material from mining industry and is produced in huge quantities approximately 70-99% of the ore production.  Tailings material is stored as impoundments by constructing tailings dams which are often constructed with tailings material itself. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the impact of temperature perturbations on the creep of sensitive clay

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Yanling Li; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; thermal cycles; sensitive clays; oedometer tests; temperature; natural bonding; apparent preconsolidation pressure; multi-physics modelling; geothermal; static thermal loading;

    Abstract : Temperature affects the soil response, but is not fully understood and quantified and thus often ignored. The temperature fluctuations resulting from energy foundations and construction activities, such as excavations and soil stabilization, however, may lead to changes in the hydromechanical response of the clay.

  3. 3. Calculating long-term settlement in soft clays - with special focus on the Gothenburg region

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Mats Olsson; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soft clay; long-term settlement; creep; test sites;

    Abstract : Long-term settlement in clay constitutes an engineering challenge in road design and construction in areas with deep deposits of soft clay. Soil improvement and construction of building foundations or embankments can be quite complicated and expensive in such areas. Construction costs need to be balanced against high maintenance costs.

  4. 4. On Rate-Dependency of Gothenburg Clay

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Mats Olsson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; K0-triaxial cell; destructuration.; creep; anisotropy; Soft clay;

    Abstract : On Rate-Dependency of Gothenburg ClayMATS OLSSONDepartment of Civil and Environmental EngineeringDivision of GeoEngineeringChalmers University of TechnologyABSTRACTLong-term settlements in clay constitute a major engineering challenge in areas with deep deposits of soft clay. This dissertation aims to extend the understanding and theoretical framework of rate-dependent soil behaviour, so that uncertainties in predictions of long-term settlements are significantly reduced.

  5. 5. Geotechnical Aspects of Buildings on Expansive Soils in Kibaha, Tanzania Preliminary Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Charles Lucian; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; expansive soils; soil properties; potential swell; Soil-Structure Interaction SSI ; and superstructure and substructure.; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The focus of this study is on potential problems resulting from construction on expansive soils in Kibaha region, Tanzania. For the fact that most of the affected structures are founded on expansive soils, a clear understanding of the soil behaviour and their interaction with structures, specifically as they relate to shallow foundations, has been of more interest to the study in order to evaluate properly the source of the problem.
