Sabkha soils are saline sediments, which can withstand high loads in dry conditions, but upon wetting, they exhibit significant deformation and low shear strength and hence pose great challenge to engineers. This paper investigates the collapsibility of a compacted sabkha soil of Chott El-Hodna (Algeria) using a modified oedometer, which allows water to percolat...

For concrete face rockfill dams, the behaviour of the concrete slab which provides the watertightness of the dam is a major concern. The deformation of the dam embankment during construction and operation leads to concrete slab
deformation. This deformation should be compatible with the structural integrity of the concrete slab. This paper p...
