THE INFLUENCE OF VEGETATION ON THE SWELLING AND SHRINKAGE OF CLAYS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Soils subject to swelling and shrinking can be found in most of the states in the continental United States of America, extending from the east coast to the west coast and from the north to the south. The cost of damage to structures placed on these soils is said to exceed. Volume 67 Issue 9: Symposium in print: tunnelling in the urban environment September, 2017, pp. 747-844.

Vegetation clearance, however, may initiate instability, highlighting the need for effective vegetation management to achieve a balance between serviceability and ultimate limit states. Although the case considered is representative of southeast England, it introduces the necessary tools for realistic numerical analysis of soil–atmosphere.

Abstract In this paper results from laboratory tests on London Clay and artificially cemented kaolin are presented and used to develop a preliminary framework for the time-dependent behaviour of soils, applicable to.
A total of 27 piles were installed at the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council soft clay test site at Bothkennar, Scotland using the continuous-flight-auger boring technique. Twelve of the piles of different lengths and diameters were tested in axial compression, using the others as reaction piles. Various testing programmes were employed to investigate relationships between axial.

J. 1998 Experience of the use of non-linear pre-failure constitutive soil models. Part 3, The Geotechnique Symposium in Print. The influence of various rheological parameters are discussed. Experimental evidence is introduced for several normally consolidated and over consolidated clay samples. The rate of secondary consolidation is approximately the same for both isotropically consolidated triaxial tests and for oedometer tests. Root systems of two mature Field maple trees Acer campestre L. growing in both shaded and non-shaded sites, on clay soil in an urban environment, were analyzed by ground penetrating radar GPR, light microscope and sap flow techniques. The ground surface above the root systems was covered by asphalt. However, a small piece of garden existed near the non-shaded tree, and root area of roots. Quick clays are sensitive late-glacial and postglacial marine- and brackish-water sediments. Salt removal has decreased their remolded strength, such that, if disturbed, they behave as a liquid. Cementation by nano-sized particles of iron oxides at particle contacts may increase the sensitivity of quick clays in parts of the St. Lawrence Basin.

The use of the finite element method to model excavations and tunnels in Dublin black boulder clay has, in the past, had limited success owing to the failure of the available constitutive models in commercially available software programs to adequately represent the essential features of a stiff soil.

Tan, X., Yin, H., Zhang, G., Reed, A.H., and Furukawa, Y. 2011. Influence of guar gum on the particle size and settling of cohesive sediments. Proceedings of the River, Coastal. This paper discusses some of the more commonly used field testing methods used to determine various geotechnical parameters needed to classify soils and rocks in engineering terms and to provide engineering design values. The methods of performing, and the application of, various penetration, shear strength, plate loading, pressuremeter and dilatometer and permeablity tests are described.
Small-scale evaporation experiments were carried out using a river clay and commercially available suction-measuring equipment. The results showed that the initial conditions have great influence on the drying performance of a soil, which can be partly attributed to the influence of. Seasonal shrinkage and swelling of clay fill railway embankments can disturb the track geometry, resulting in train speed restrictions that disrupt normal operations. Such movements are exacerbated by vegetation, but reliable analytical descriptions of the effects of trees on embankment behaviour are not yet established. This paper presents and analyses the results of a field experiment. Bjerrum, L. 1973, ‘Problems of soil mechanics and construction of soft clays and structurally unstable soils’, in Proc. 8th Int.
