Waste Containment Facilities
This book presents a comprehensive description of recommended procedures for construction quality assurance (CQA) and control (CQC) for waste containment facilities. Chapter 1 describes...

Testing of Hollow Clay Tile Masonry Prisms
This paper presents test results of 610-mm wide (24-in.) by 1219-mm high (48-in) by 203- or 330-mm (8- or 13-in.) thick prisms constructed of hollow clay tiles. Three prisms were extracted...

Assessing Effects for Disposal Sites off San Francisco
A simple particle tracking model has been used to estimate the size of deposition footprints and transient turbidity effects in the water column resulting from disposal of dredged material...

Saturation and Gas Migration Within Clay Buffers

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...

Design of Clay Liner Permeability at Laboratory Scale Using Expert Systems
Unlike other soil properties, permeability of compacted clay is highly variable. The large number of parameters that affect permeability of compacted clay renders permeability unpredictable...

Settlement of Embankments on Soft Clays
It is now possible to make reliable predictions of settlement of embankments on soft clays. In most situations, where the embankment is designed to resist undrained instability during...

Compressibility of Clays: Fundamental and Practical Aspects
The compressibility of natural clays is influenced by strain rate, temperature, sampling disturbance, stress path and some restructuration factors. The first part of the paper reviews...

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...

Settlement of Tanks on Clay
Steel tanks for storage of water, oil, and other liquids are capable of withstanding large, but not unlimited, settlements without damage. In most cases shallow foundations provide adequate...

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...

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...

Strip Foundation on Geogrid-Reinforced Clay
Laboratory model test results for the ultimate bearing capacity and allowable bearing capacity at various settlement levels conducted on a strip foundation supported by geogrid-reinforced...

Settlement of a Silo Subjected to Cyclic Loading
The paper presents the vertical settlement values for a corn silo located at Ca' Mello, close to Porto Tolle (Italy), and compares it with the theoretical results obtained using a simplified...
