Estimating Clay Liner and Cover Permeability Using Computational Neural Networks
The ability to provide a quick estimate of the permeability value to be expected in laboratory testing (of field samples) would help to predict potential problems in meeting the permeability...

Methods to Reduce the Settlement of Embankments on Soft Clay: A Review
New trends have been observed during the past ten years in the practice of settlement control for embankments on soft clays: they include increased use of rigid (piles) or semi-rigid (stone...

Analysis of the Juturnaiba Embankment Dam Built on an Organic Soft Clay
The Juturnaiba Dam, located in the northern part of Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, has 1.2 km of its length built on an organic soft clay about four meters deep. The construction of the...

Replacement of a Failed Embankment Designed to Accommodate Large Settlement: A Case Study
Thick deposits of soft, normally to slightly preconsolidated, organic clay are common at low elevations along the riverbanks of southeast Texas. Both the moisture content and liquid limit...

Settlements of Highway Embankments on Soft Lacustrine Deposits
This paper presents the settlement study that was conducted in conjunction with the major freeway expansion project planned through Salt Lake City in which existing embankments will be...

An Investigation of the Reinforcing Effect of Stone Columns in Soft Clay
A proposed major extension to an iron ore handling yard was located in an area underlain by soft alluvial clay. Stone columns were proposed to limit settlement of rails supporting the...

Settlement of a Silo Subjected to Cyclic Loading
