    Abstract : Dredging activities at ports and harbors are inevitable for safe navigation of ships and vessels. The outcomes of dredging are huge volumes of dredged materials, which can range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sands and gravels. The coarse sands and gravels can be directly used in civil engineering applications. READ MORE

  2. 2. Testing and modelling of silty and sulphide-rich soils

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Yao Yu; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Abstract : Silt and sulphide soil are two types of soil which are dominating in northern Sweden, especially in the coast area of the Baltic sea. The stress-strain and strength characteristics of these two soils have so far not been as much explored as those for e.g. Scandinavian clays. READ MORE

  3. 3. Green liquor dregs-amended till to cover sulfidic mine waste

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Susanne Nigéus; Christian Maurice; Thomas Pabst; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geochemistry; Tillämpad geokemi;

    Abstract : The mining industry produces massive amounts of waste that without treatment and in contact with oxygen can result in acid rock drainage (ARD) and increased leaching of metals. In Sweden, the common way to manage the mine waste after closure is to apply a dry coverage on top of the waste deposition. READ MORE

  4. 4. Application of the SASW-technique in geotechnical in-situ testing

    University dissertation from Mats Svensson, Geotechnology, Box 118, 221 00 LUND

    Author : Mats Svensson; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geologi; Hydrogeologi; Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves; shear modulus; SASW; multichannel; inversion; Gmax; teknisk geografi; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; Civil engineering; hydraulic engineering; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : With the main aim to test the applicability of the surface wave seismic technique Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW), used for determination of the shear stiffness (shear modulus - Gmax), four areas of applications have been studied. The four areas have been sites with natural geological conditions, sites where non destructive testing is necessary, pavement testing and multichannel testing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mechanical properties of inorganic silt

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Lennart Börgesson; [1981]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Abstract : The need for increased knowledge of the properties and behaviour of silty soils has been urgent for many years. This report is an attempt to fulfil this need to same degree. The properties of inorganic silt have been investigated by means of laboratory tests, field tests and load tests. READ MORE
