Shear strength of municipal solid waste for stability analyses
Stark, Timothy D.; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Li, Guocheng (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-06-01)
This paper investigates the shear strength of municipal solid waste (MSW) using the back analysis of failed waste slopes as well as field and laboratory test results. Shear strength of MSW is a function of many factors such as waste type, composition, compaction, daily cover, moisture conditions, age, decomposition, overburden pressure, etc. These factors together with non-standardized sampling methods, insufficient sample size to be representative of in situ conditions, and limited shear displacement or ax...
Shear-Wave Velocity-Based Probabilistic and Deterministic Assessment of Seismic Soil Liquefaction Potential
Kayen, R.; Moss, R. E. S.; Thompson, E. M.; Seed, R. B.; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Kiureghian, A. Der; Tanaka, Y.; Tokimatsu, K. (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-03-01)
Shear-wave velocity (V-s) offers a means to determine the seismic resistance of soil to liquefaction by a fundamental soil property. This paper presents the results of an 11-year international project to gather new V-s site data and develop probabilistic correlations for seismic soil liquefaction occurrence. Toward that objective, shear-wave velocity test sites were identified, and measurements made for 301 new liquefaction field case histories in China, Japan, Taiwan, Greece, and the United States over a d...
Shear flocculation of chromite fines in sodium oleate solutions
Akdemir, U; Hicyilmaz, C (1996-05-01)
In this study, chromite fines were aggregated by stirring after the particle surfaces were made hydrophobic with sodium oleate. The effects of pH, sodium oleate concentration, stirrer speed and flocculation time were examined. Electrokinetic potential and contact angle measurements were also carried out to interpret the flocculation in terms of surface charge and particle hydrophobicity.
Shear strength behaviour of sand-clay mixtures
Ölmez, Mehmet Salih; Ergun, Mehmet Ufuk; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
A clean sand having about 5 % fines has been mixed with 5 to 40 % commercial kaolin to form different sand-clay soil mixtures. The purpose of making this study is to observe the effects of fraction of fine materials in the soil mixture on the behavior of shear strength. Three series of experiments have been performed throughout the study. Undrained triaxial compression tests (series 1) are performed on specimens taken out from homogeneously mixed soil mixtures at specified kaolin contents consolidated in a ...
