    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

  3. 3. Strength of Stabilised Soil - A Laboratory Study on Clays and Organic Soils Stabilised with different Types of Binder

    University dissertation from Avd. för Byggnadsmekanik / Department of Construction Sciences, LTH

    Author : Helen Åhnberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materiallära; Material technology; Hållfasthet; Geoteknik; Stabiliserad jord; materialteknik;

    Abstract : Stabilisation of soft soils by deep mixing with binders is the most frequently used method of ground improvement in Sweden today, and is increasingly being used internationally. The most common binders employed are cement and lime, but a variety of other binders may also be used for stabilisation of soils. READ MORE

  4. 4. Soil Modification By Adding Small Amounts of Soil Stabilizers Impact of Portland Cement and the Industrial By-Product Petrit T

    University dissertation from Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Wathiq Al-Jabban; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soil Mechanics; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis presents results of laboratory experiments regarding the effectiveness of adding small amounts of binders in order to modify and improve the mechanical performance of low organic clayey silt soil. Two types of binders have been used i.e. cement and an industrial by-product named Petrit T. READ MORE

  5. 5. Test Methods for Characterising Ore Comminution Behavior in Geometallurgy

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Abdul Mwanga; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mineral Processing; Mineralteknik;

    Abstract : Comminution test methods used within mineral processing have mainly been developed for selecting the most appropriate comminution technology for a given ore, designing a grinding circuit as well as sizing the equipment needed. Existing test methods usually require comparatively large sample amounts and are time-consuming to conduct. READ MORE
