  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. Unsaturated Solute Transport in a Semiarid Catchment - Nonlinear Analyses and Modelling

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Pernilla Öhrström; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; unsaturated zone; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; solute transport; scaling; soils; semiarid regions; heterogeneity; preferential flow; fractals;

    Abstract : Unsaturated solute transport is highly variable and therefore difficult to predict. In semi-arid areas, where water resources are limited, the presence of macropores is of great importance for crop production. The bromide ion (Br-) and dye tracers are useful for studies of water movement. READ MORE
