  1. 1. Fault Tree Analysis of Quick Clay Slides

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Karl Bäckström; Andreas Linder; [2021]
    Keywords : Quick clay; Quick clay slides; Risk management; Fault tree analysis; Strain-softening behaviour; Kvicklera; Kvicklereskred; Felträdsanalys; Riskhantering; Töjningsmjuknande beteende;

    Abstract : Quick clay slides are quite rare but often leads to major consequences for the society. These type of slides are complex and the true causes leading to a slide is difficult to map since the evidence is destroyed during the slide. Because of this, different theories develop of the causes of the slide based on the same information. READ MORE

  2. 2. Integration of Borehole, Ground, and Airborne Data to Improve Identification of Areas With Quick Clays in Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Geofysik

    Author : Oskar Rydman; [2021]
    Keywords : TEM; tTEM; Quick clay; SkyTEM; ATEM; CPTR; CPTU-R; Landslides; Frastad; TEM; tTEM; Quick clay; SkyTEM; ATEM; CPTR; CPTU-R; Jordskred; Fråstad;

    Abstract : The main focus of the project was the comparison of results from a new towed transientelectromagnetic (tTEM) data set with existing data including airborne transient EM(ATEM), radio magnetotellurics (RMT), cone penetration test with resistivity (CPT-R),geotechnical interpretations and geological observations in a quick clay landslide site atFråstad close to Lilla Edet in south-west Sweden. The tTEM data set was processedand inverted twice in the software Aarhus workbench using different inversion constraintsand settings. READ MORE
