  • Geoweb solves soft subgrade problems for Port of Oakland, Oakland, California - Case Study

    Providing pavements to support traffic from wheeled equipment traffic with axle loads as high as 90 tons on loose dry soils is challenging under the best of conditions. But add to that installing and compacting a 1.8-m (6-ft) thick base layer on top of a weak, saturated clay subgrade – where environmental concerns prevent the use of lime to establish a layer of stabilized soil underneath ...

  • Wetting rate and rain depth effects on crust strength and Mcromorphology

    Aggregate disintegration and crust formation at soil surfaces exposed to rain are caused by rapid wetting of the dry aggregates and by raindrop impact. The relative importance of these two mechanisms was evaluated by studying the effects of the wetting rate (WR) and raindrop impact on crust strength and crust micromorphology. Two soils, a loess (Typic Haplustalf) and a black soil (Pachic Udic ...

  • Composite protection for slopes - Dallas Eastside Water Treatment Plant, Texas - Case study

    Geocells, geotextiles and geomembranes resolve the chronic erosion problems of a municipal levee. In 1996, consulting engineers under con-tract to the City of Dallas contacted Soil Stabilization Products Company Inc. (SSPCo) to discuss solutions for chronic problems caused by more than a dozen sliding failures per year on the outer slopes of a water treatment facility's lagoon. The facility, ...

  • Effects of Strain Rate on Instability of Granular Soils

    An experimental study of the effect of strain rate on the stability of granular soils at high pressures has shown that there is no apparent effect on the location of the instability line. However, during undrained triaxial compression tests the deviator stress, effective stress path, effective stress friction angle, and pore pressures are significantly affected by changes in strain rate. Strain ...
