A Parametric Study on the Evolution of Cyclic Clay-Pile Interface Friction for Large Numbers of Cycles

The present experimental study investigates the influence of cyclic displacement amplitude and effective consolidation stress on the evolution of mobilized local shaft friction along piles submitted to large number of cycles (up to 105 cycles).

Seismic Bearing Capacity of Strip Footing Resting on Reinforced Layered Soil Using Chaotic Particle Swarm Optimization Technique

In this paper limit equilibrium method under pseudo-static approach is applied to evaluate the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow strip footing resting on geosynthetic reinforced soils. The foundation is resting on two layered c − ϕ soils.

Efficacy of Geopile–Anchors in Controlling Heave of Expansive Clay Beds

This paper presents the efficacy of a new technique in the form of geopile–anchors in arresting heave of expansive soils. Heave behaviour of a remoulded expansive clay reinforced with vertical cylindrical cells made of geogrid and filled with …

Integration of Transverse Isotropy in the Instantaneous Behaviour of Geomaterials with Application to Numerical Modelling of Underground Structures

The paper deals with the integration of structural anisotropy in a pre-existing constitutive law for rocks, dedicated to the numerical modelling of underground structures. On the basis of bibliographic study, two approaches were selected and …

Experimental Study on Grouting Reinforcement Mechanism of Heterogeneous Fractured Rock and Soil Mass

To explore the grouting reinforcement mechanism of heterogeneous rock and soil in a fault fracture zone, based on the F2 fault grouting project of Yonglian Tunnel, the filling area composed of loose and soft media in the fault is defined as the …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Geotechnical and Geological Engineering publishes papers in the areas of soil and rock engineering and also of geology as applied in the civil engineering, mining and petroleum industries. The emphasis is on the engineering aspects of soil and rock mechanics, geology and hydrogeology, although papers on theoretical and experimental advances in ground mechanics are also welcomed for inclusion.

The journal encompasses a broad spectrum of geo-engineering although several areas have been identified which will be given particular priority:

Soil and rock engineering;

Foundation engineering;

Applied geology for design and construction;

Geo-environmental engineering;

Earthquake engineering and dynamic behavior of soils and rocks;

Geohazards and mitigation;

Mining engineering;

Geotechnical aspects of petroleum engineering;

Information technology applications in geo-engineering;

Novel geotechnical construction techniques;

Case histories describing important geo-engineering projects.

Geotechnical and Geological Engineering publishes contributions in the form of original and review papers, or as short technical notes. A Book Review section informs the discerning reader of the type and quality of literature available to the geotechnical engineer and engineering geologist.
