Optimum Replacement Depth To Control Heave Of Swelling Clays

Date: 02-12-2016 15:41

The behavior of unsaturated swelling soils under changing of moisture content was intensively studied by many researchers since the 1950’s. Many proposed formulas and techniques were used to classify, describe and predict the swelling behavior and parameters of such type of soil. On the other hand, many techniques are used to allow structures to be founded on swelling so ... read full abstract ››

Applications Of Genetic Programming In Geotechnical Engineering

Date: 02-12-2016 15:30

In most geotechnical problems, it is too difficult to predict the soil and structure behavior accurately, because of large variation in soil parameters and the assumption of the numerical solutions. But recently many geotechnical problems are solved using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques by presenting new solutions or developing the existing ones.
The aim of this t ... read full abstract ››

Date: 18-10-2003 18:40

The construction industry persists in a massive over production of primary aggregates. This has caused the depression of primary aggregate prices which in turn leads to the serious under-utilization of secondary and recycled aggregates – valuable resources which are simply being wasted.

Currently, C & D waste generated on our islands is managed through it ... read full abstract ››
