  1. 1. Optimization in Design of End-Bearing Concrete and Steel Piles with Regard to Climate Impact : Climate Conscious Material Choices in Early Project Planning

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Simat Adnan; Jann Ton; [2021]
    Keywords : Design; End-bearing piles; Bearing capacity; GWP; LCA; Climate change; Dimensionering; Spetsburna pålar; Bärförmåga; GWP; LCA; Klimatpåverkan;

    Abstract : Environmental sustainability is becoming more popular in the building industry. Sustainable thinking needs to be present during the whole construction process, from the idea phase to the final stages. READ MORE

  2. 2. CPTu Configuration Impact on Evaluated Undrained Shear Strength

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Mårten Mjöberg; Axel Stenfors; [2020]
    Keywords : Cone Penetration Testing; Fields trials; Soil mechanics; Evaluated undrained shear strength.;

    Abstract : This thesis evaluates the commonly used geotechnical probing method CPTu, on how different probe configurations impact the resulting evaluated undrained shear strength in soft clay deposits, in comparison to each other and laboratory methods. This is done by performing field investigations on Lindefältet, Södermanlands län, Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of cone factors for CPT-evaluation in CONRAD of sulphide- bearing soil in Mälardalen

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Matilda Garpefjäll; Hugo Hildingsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Sulphide soil; clay; CPT-evaluation; CONRAD; Mälardalen; Sulfidjord; lera; CPT-utvärdering; CONRAD; Mälardalen;

    Abstract : The purpose of this master thesis is to investigate how to evaluate CPT-soundings in sulphide soilfrom Mälardalen in CONRAD. The objective is to conclude whether sulphide soil from Mälardalenshould be evaluated with existing methods or a new method should be developed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of using liquidity index for the approximation of undrained shear strength of clay tills in Scania

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Dagnija Andreasson; [2019]
    Keywords : clay till; undrained shear strength; liquidity index; CPT; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Undrained shear strength is a crucial parameter of the clay-rich sediments commonly used in the design process of geotechnical structures and is determined by several tests. As a considerable part of these tests are cost- and time consuming, it is of interest to investigate the potential relationship with shear strength (cu) with alternative, easily measurable parameters, such as liquidity index (IL).

  5. 5. Slope Stability Evaluation from a RiskManagement Perspective : Case Study: the Slussen project in Stockholm

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Louise Larsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Slope stability; shear strength; uncertainties; risk management; Släntstabilitet; Skjuvhållfasthet; riskhantering; osäkerheter;

    Abstract : Site characterization and the subsequent determination of soil strengthparameters constitute a significant part of slope stability assessment.Geotechnical engineering is always governed by great uncertainties sincethe soil properties are challenging to estimate for a large soil volume.
