  1. 1. Application of Dynamic Grouting to Improve the Grout Spread Using Varying Aperture Long Slot (VALS) : AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik; KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Author : Robabeh Hosseini; Yalta Steven; [2018]
    Keywords : grout penetrability; filtration tendency; varying aperture long slot; sealing; cement-based grout; dynamic grouting; bruksinträngningsförmåga; filtrationstendens; VALS; tätning; cementbaserade injekteringsmedel; dynamisk injektering;

    Abstract : In the past centuries, grouting has been one of the most common techniques in geotechnical engineering to strengthen and seal underground structures. Concerning increasing demands for tightness and cost efficiency, cement-based grout has been one the most frequent used materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Buckling of End-Bearing Retaining Walls in Clay

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik; KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Fredrik Jansson; Nils Nilsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Berliner walls; Critical loads; buckling; finite element model; Eurocode 3; Berlinerspont; Rörspont; kritisk knäckningslast; knäckning; finit element modell; Eurocode 3;

    Abstract : The design of back-anchored retaining walls in Sweden has traditionally not included global elastic instability of the retaining wall as a possible failure mode. Eurocode 3 part 5 (SS-EN 1993-5) requires design of steel structural members for retaining walls to assess the risk of buckling if the normal force exceeds 4 % of the critical buckling load of the retaining wall.

  3. 3. Optimization of the steel-fiber dosage in shotcrete used in the Kankberg mine

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

    Author : Pontus Larsson; [2018]
    Keywords : rock mechanics; shotcrete; bergmekanik; sprutbetong;

    Abstract : The Swedish metal company Boliden has since the early 20th century been mining deposits in the mining field commonly referred to as the Skelleftefield in northern Sweden. The youngest of the active mines is the Kankberg mine which is an underground mine whose reserve contains gold and tellurium. READ MORE

  4. 4. An alarm system for pore pressure measurements in the foundation ofconcrete dams : a case study of Storfinnforsen buttress dam

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Daniel Falcão de Queiroz; [2018]
    Keywords : Buttress dams; dam foundation; pore pressure; alarm system; alarm limits; sliding in the rock mass; uplift pressure; piezometers.; Lamelldammar; dammgrundläggning; portryck; alarm system; alarmgränser; glidning i bergmassan; upptryck; portrycksmätare;

    Abstract : Concrete buttress dams are relatively light structures and less demandingon foundations; because of that, they may have problems with upliftforces and horizontal joints in the area of the dam´s foundation maypresent a failure mode through sliding. The Storfinnforsen dam, thelargest concrete dam in Sweden, had its foundation studied recently andthe discovery of sub-horizontal joints in the bedrock led to the necessityof having the safety of the dam foundation to sliding assessed.

  5. 5. 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
