Case study of landslide in the Karviná region using resistivity tomography measurements
The paper deals with the slide of Doubrava Vrchovec that occurs in district of Karviná in Doubrava Village. The slope deformation in this area was reactivated by mining effects and by precipitation. The studied area is the ...
Geotechnical characteristics and mineralogy of compacted clays used as an impervious core for the camligoze dam, turkey
Soil materials used to construct the impervious core of the Camligöze dam consist of clay minerals, quartz, feldspar, and calcite. Smectite and chlorite + kaolinite appear to be the dominant clay minerals. Illite-smectite ...
Gypsum/anhydrite: Some engineering problems
The engineering properties of gypsum/anhydrite change as a consequence of groundwater, pressure and heat. Gypsum and anhydrite may experience dissolution in the near-surface zone and along the discontinuities, creating ...
Toe erosion induced landslides from şebinkarahisar (Giresun-Turkey): Part II, physically based susceptibility mapping
This case study presented herein describes physically based susceptibility mapping in Avutmuş-Sebinkarahisar (Giresun-Turkey) and its vicinity using the SINMAP model. Sebinkarahisar has been recognized as a landslide-prone ...
On the reliability of SPT-N value as an indication of consistency of clayey soils
Investigation of the shear strength properties and consistency distributions of the clayey alluviual soils of the Niksar basin located at the right bank of the Kelkit River and evaluation of the shear strength of the clays, ...
