Fundamentals of Soil Behaviour
Application of sustainability indicators in decision-making processes for urban regeneration projects
Birmingham Eastside, an area of 170 ha, is located to the eastern side of Birmingham's city centre in the UK. Over a 10-year period this once-deprived inner city area is being regenerated through
The mineralogy and fabric of ‘Brickearths’ in Kent, UK and their relationship to engineering behaviour
Mineralogical and petrographical investigation of two loessic brickearth profiles from Ospringe and Pegwell Bay in north Kent, UK have differentiated two types of brickearth fabric that can be
Emissions assessment related to vibro stone columns
This paper investigates a number of issues significant to the evaluation of the sustainability of vibro stone columns and, in so doing, discusses how a carbon dioxide emissions estimation tool could
Scenario Archetypes: Converging Rather than Diverging Themes
Future scenarios provide challenging, plausible and relevant stories about how the future could unfold. Urban Futures (UF) research has identified a substantial set (>450) of seemingly disparate
Collapsibility in Calcareous Clayey Loess: A Factor of Stress-Hydraulic History
The re-use of excavated loess in embankments needs a good understanding of its long-term mechanical response. Among the many collapse controlling factors, stress and hydraulic history are of
Sustainability indicators for environmental geotechnics
Environmental geotechnics (EG) has the potential to make a substantial contribution to the field of sustainable construction, which in turn affects sustainable development. Indicators for measuring
Why is Sustainability Important in Geotechnical Engineering
One of the key contributing fields to sustainable development, almost no matter what the project, is geotechnical engineering, which faces a challenging dichotomy between delivering project goals and
Rivers and loess: The significance of long river transportation in the complex event-sequence approach to loess deposit formation
Abstract Rivers are essential for loess deposit formation. River systems which relate directly to loess deposit formation include the Danube and the Rhine; the Mississippi and the Missouri; the
