  1. 1. Settlement calculation for lime/cement column improved clay : Analytical and numerical analyses related to a case study

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Hulumtaye Kefyalew Yederulh; [2018]
    Keywords : LCC; deep mixing; consolidation settlement; rate of consolidation; numerical analysis; analytical analysis; field measurement.; KC-pelare; djupstabilisering; konsolideringssättningar; konsolideringsgrad; numerisk analys; analytisk analys; fältmätningar;

    Abstract : The dry deep mixing method is widely used to improve a soft clay soil to increase the shear strength as well as to reduce the time for consolidation. It is a mechanical mixing process that makes parts of the soil stiffer than its original strength. It is mainly applicable to soft clay or peat soil. READ MORE

  2. 2. LABORATORY TESTING RELATED TO UNLOADING MODULUS OF SOFT CLAY

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geoteknik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Sofia Hasselberg; [2018]
    Keywords : CRS; unloading modulus; storage time; clay; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The unloading modulus, together with the permeability, are responsible for the swelling process of a soil that is subjected to unloading. Studies to examine the unloading modulus of clay has previously been performed and several relationships describing this parameter has hence been developed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling of pore pressure in a railway embankment

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Marcus Vestman; [2018]
    Keywords : PLAXIS; Pore pressure; Railway;

    Abstract : LKAB and Trafikverket want to increase the maximum allowed axial load from 30 tons to 32,5 tons for the northern part of Malmbanan. There are ongoing investigations of the condition of the railway with the current axial load of 30 tons. The investigations do not include one of Trafikverket's concerns about the condition of the railway. READ MORE

  4. 4. Slope stability assessment through field monitoring

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Yukun Wei; [2018]
    Keywords : Slope stability; inclinometer; displacement; FEM; inverse analysis.;

    Abstract : Deterministic methods have been used in geotechnical engineering for a long period, such as slope stability calculations. However, only applying deterministic methods is subjective and imperfect. READ MORE

  5. 5. Internal Erosion and Dam Stability : Analysis of the internal erosion effects on stability of an embankment dam

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geoteknologi

    Author : Arthur Jedenius; [2018]
    Keywords : Internal erosion stability finite element analysis method plaxis slope seep;

    Abstract : Embankment dams encounter several problems in terms of dam safety. One of those problems is called internal erosion. This phenomenon is induced by the movement of fine particles within the dam due to seepage forces. If the dam is not able to self-heal, the eroded zones will increase which will eventually cause the dam to fail. READ MORE
