Proceedings Papers

Paper presented at the ISRM International Symposium, November 19–24, 2000
Paper Number: ISRM-IS-2000-145
... ABSTRACT: Loess soils cover approximately 10% of the world's landmass. This quaternary deposit has been studied for many decades, but predicting the collapse behaviour still remains an active subject for discussion and research. For this project, collapse mechanisms have been studied using two...

..., Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The computing power of a GIS may significantly aid hazard prediction. This model will be used in locating the distribution of a potentially problematic soil, loess. Loess, a wind blown Quaternary soil, covers 10% of the world's landmass and thus the influence...

Paper presented at the ISRM International Symposium, November 19–24, 2000
Paper Number: ISRM-IS-2000-376
... ABSTRACT: Many piles with various lengths and plates were tested in Khon Kaen loess. The critical depth of driven and bored piles was found to be 9.5 and 7.5 times that of pile size respectively. The pile friction was the effective stress multiplied by 0.5 and 0.3 for driven and bored piles...

... ABSTRACT: Loess soils cover approximately 10% of the world's landmass. Loess is an aeolian quaternary deposit of predominately silt size, which forms open metastable structures through various bonding agents. These agents include water, clay and carbonate and upon loading usually...
