Swelling characteristics of bentonites in artificial seawater
Bentonite is currently designated for use as a buffer material for the repository of high-level radioactive waste because such a material requires swelling characteristics to seal the waste. AExpand

Multifaceted potentials of tire-derived three dimensional geosynthetics in geotechnical applications and their evaluation
Abstract Scrapped tire-derived materials, such as tire chips and tire shreds, can be categorized as three dimensional geosynthetics. This paper introduces recent Japanese experience in geotechnicalExpand

Stability Criteria for Marine Clay Under One-Way Cyclic Loading
Results are presented from a series of one-way cyclic undrained triaxial tests on Ariake Clay, a highly plastic, normally consolidated marine clay from Kyushu in southwest Japan. Considering firstExpand

Settlements in fine-grained soils under cyclic loading
ABSTRACT Based on the methods previously presented by the authors (Yasuhara et al., 1992, 1994, 1996) for predicting the degradation in strength and stiffness of soft clays in the course of cyclicExpand

Effects of climate change on geo-disasters in coastal zones and their adaptation
Abstract Results of recent investigations suggest that climate change tends to exacerbate geo-disasters. Therefore, it is understood clearly that adaptation to climate change has rapidly become theExpand
