The shearing strength of clays is greatly affected by some factors. These factors are including the composition of soil minerals, the initial moisture content, the degree of saturation, the over-consolidation ratio, the initial void ratio, the porosity, the loading conditions (drained conditions versus undrained conditions), the pore fluid composit...

One of the most common natural catastrophic in the world is Landslides causing large casualties and large economic losses. In 1994, a landslide disaster struck a part of Nepal country along the llam road. This landslide caused devastation in the country at that time. In this paper, an evaluation of this landslide was conducted and deep study to mit...

Sulphate attack is a major difficulty which has a local effect on the constructional materials, specially the concrete. Internal sulphate attack takes place due to the source of sulphate being incorporated into the concrete at the period of mixing, while adding gypsum in the cement etc. This project aims to investigate the influence of internal Sul...

2009 marks the third straight year California has been in a severe drought. The state's reservoirs are at half the levels they should be and California has been forced to reduce water consumption. There has been water rationing, water price increases, and reduction in water allocations. The need to conserve water is clearly present. The reuse of gr...

One important natural property of asphalt materials is the ability to self-repair damages. This property could extend service life of asphalt roads and help deter maintenance to some accountable time. This property is basically working on rejuvenating the aged bitumen when cracks appear. With this purpose, two types of asphalt mixtures were develop...

Concrete is one of the most important materials used in construction. Properties of concrete can be improved using additives like nano-ceramics which acts as reinforced phase to raise the mechanical properties of concrete. Effect of nano-powder on some properties of concrete has been determined. In this study, two concrete mixes have been prepar...

One of the most significant factors that effects the soil classification is Atterberg limits, liquid limit and plastic limit. Atterberg limits were developed by a Swedish scientist at the early 1900’s called Atterberg. These limits could express the consistency of fine-grained soils due to variety of water content. These limits divide the soil into...

Precast pre-stressed concrete has historically been used for a variety of infrastructure facilities and projects in developed countries. Its popularity in the transportation industry has especially increased during the last few decades, as it offers several important advantageous aspects over traditional cast-in-place concrete. Such advantages are...
Thesis
Full-text available
Soil-structure frictional resistance is very important in designing foundation system and retaining walls. Although much more attention has been paid in recent years regarding soil-structure interaction, highly conservative values are used in design for the static frictional resistance between soil and structure. Not much emphasis has been given la...
Article
Full-text available
The paper presents the experimental study of generated friction between soil itself and soil with the structural materials. The direct shear tests equipment have been used to conduct series of laboratory tests on poorly graded sand soils. All tests were achieved under four values of vertical stress for sand to sand and sand to structural materials....
Article

Soil–structure frictional resistance is required while designing foundation systems and retaining walls. Although much more attention has been paid in recent years regarding soil–structure interaction for dynamic loading, highly conservative values of the static frictional resistance between soil and structure are used in design. Not much emphasis...

1. Data represents the effect of soil drying method on Atterberg limits which express the soil consistency. 2. Data also useful for assessment of the relationship between the soil consistency and soil classification. 3. The data are useful for researchers who deal with soil, as they need to dry out the soil specimen and there are two methods of drying.
