Implementation of selected geobarriers for the landscape planning purposes in Slezska Ostrava (Czech Republic)
This article deals with the analysis of engineering-geological zones, flood lands and radon hazard. The main reason of the study is the insufficient use of engineering-geological data for land planning and designing ...
Verification of the results of the geotechnical monitoring using finite element method
(13th International Multidisciplinary Scientific Geoconference and EXPO, SGEM 2013, 2013)
Verification of the results of the geotechnical monitoring using finite element analysis shows that this method allows you to make a sufficiently accurate prediction of the behavior of the structure. The actual modeling ...
Unconsolidated clays from the inner shore of the Gemlik Gulf in the Marmara Sea (Bursa-Turkey)
The consolidation properties of clay samples from a marine environment were examined. Index, triaxial and odeometer tests were performed on the undisturbed/disturbed clay samples from 13 boreholes in the Gemlik Gulf ...
Landslide susceptibility mapping methods and use of artificial neural networks
Landslides have a large quantity of the natural disasters world-wide, this trend will increase in the future due to increased urbanization and development. The creation of maps of susceptibility, danger and risk is very ...
Toe erosion induced landslides from şebinkarahisar (Giresun-Turkey): Part I
This case study presented herein describes and analyses the results of the detailed surveys of landslides caused by toe erosion in Avutmus district of Sebinkarahisar (Giresun-Turkey), based on field and laboratory measurements, ...
Evaluation of shear strength of clayey soils by using their liquidity index
It is well known that overconsolidated clays have higher shear strength than unconsolidated clays. The liquidity index makes possible an evaluation of the consolidation degree of clays. However, there is no empirical ...

Consolidation and swelling properties of the clayey alluvial soils in Niksar basin [Niksar havzasi killi aluvyal zeminlerinin konsolidasyon ve sisme ozellikleri]
Properties of the clayey alluvial soils of the Niksar basin located at the right bank of the Kelkit River were investigated. The study consisted of both field and laboratory investigation programs. During these investigations, ...
A landslide in clayey soils: An example from the Kizildag region of the Sivas-Erzincan highway (Sivas-Turkey)
(American Association of Petroleum Geologists, 2002)
The Sivas-Erzincan highway, a major thoroughfare in Turkey, has been adversely impacted for years by landslides in the Kizildag region, resulting in high maintenance costs with time. This article illustrates slope stability ...
Surface runoff on loess: an example of a commonly overlooked hazardous process from northeast Czech Republic
(Springer Verlag, 2019)
Engineering structures in the geological environment of loess sediments face a number of problems. An emphasis is placed on the surface runoff hazard and the case study of surface runoff on loess sediment, it being an ...
