The Carpathian Basin covers an area of 330,000 km 2 in Central Europe, surrounded by geographic boundaries of the Carpathian Mountains, the Alps, the Dinarides and the Balkan Mountains. It is divided approximately in two halves by the rivers Danube and Tisza. Both rivers have two regular floods each year the early spring "icy flood" and the early s...

Coefficient of permeability is known as the most variable soil property Its value can vary over an order of magnitude even in case of relatively homogenous layers. So determining this value is a complicated, complex engineering task. There is a vast number of laboratory and in situ tests to determine the permeability coefficient. Each method has it...

Abstract These days the determination of the characteristic value of a simple soil parameter is simplified to a daily routine. However in the case of correlated parameters (for instance the angle of friction and the cohesion) the ascertainment of the characteristic value could be a complex assignment, and additionally it is not easy to find methods...

In year 2005 sixty-six laboratories took part in the round robin test, almost all the laboratories working in the country. Laboratories has analysed the required parameters of artificially produced (or eventually natural) soil samples. The main goal is to get answers to this questions: what is the degree of homogeneity of the physical charactherist...

The definition of the characteristic values of the soil parameters (according to EUROCODE 7) constitutes one of the most critical tasks in geotechnical calculations. The methods and the procedures related to the calculation of the characteristic values for the soil parameters with normal or lognormal distribution, related to four several cases (for...

In the east part of Rácalmás, on the riverside of Danube, there is an almost one kilometre long section of the residential area and summer resort, which is active landslide area. In the paper we present the geological and geotechnical aspects of this area, the probable reasons of landslide and conceptual possibilities of stabilization. We stressed...

This study summarizes the Hungarian experiences related to correlation of CPT and DPH results. A historical review of CPT-DPH and CPT-SPT correlations is presented, and the reliability of the published CPT-DPH correlations is analyzed using recent data from Hungarian geotechnical practice. Based on these data the paper proposes formulas describing...
