ANISOTROPIC ELASTOPLASTIC BOUNDING SURFACE MODEL FOR COHESIVE SOILS
This paper presents an improved soil model based on anisotropic critical state theory (ACST) and bounding surface plasticity. The ACST of Dafalias was extended into 3-D stress space. In addition to…

This study has quantified a basic process difference between anaerobic and aerobic bioconversion of organic matter: in the former, most of the chemical energy in the converted organic matter is stored chemically in the generated methane gas, while in the latter, this energy is released in the cell and must be carried out in a relatively large air/water vapour flow through the cell.
RECYCLING METALS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Society uses metals derived from primary and secondary sources. Secondary sources include all metals that have entered the economy but no longer serve their initial purpose. The environmental…
