Shear strength
<p>The study aims to investigate the effects of three different construction and demolition materials (CDMs), including crushed waste asphalt (CWA), crushed waste bricks (CWB), and crushed waste concrete (CWC), on some geotechnical properties of low plastic clayey soil, particularly, the undrained shear strength (Su) and the hydraulic conductivity (k). A s...

<p>Desiccation (water loss by drying or freeze-thaw sufficient to generate matric suction), can influence the performance of a tailings deposit both positively and negatively. The significance of desiccation is largest in tailings that have been dewatered prior to deposition, by thickening or filtration. Such tailings can be “stacked” o...

<p>Bearing capacity of saturated soils can be estimated using effective or total stress approaches extending the concepts proposed by Terzaghi (1943) and Skempton (1948), respectively. Recent studies have shown that similar approaches (i.e., Modified Effective Stress Approach, MESA and Modified Total Stress Approach, MTSA) can be used for interpretation an...

Products derived from tires have been increasingly used for geotechnical engineering applications because of the economic, environmental, and social benefits they provide. The objective of this paper is to analyze the effect of the addition of rubber fibers from unserviceable tires on the hydromechanical behavior of argillaceous soil from the Barreiras Formation...
