Understanding the three‐dimensional (3D) surface complexity of biological systems can yield fundamental insights into how organisms interact with their environments. The wealth of current imaging technologies permits detailed 3D visualization of biological surfaces on the macro‐, micro‐ and nanoscale. Analysis of the reconstructed 3D images, howeve...
The principles of slope stability analysis embrace the mechanics of slope failure to develop methods of stability analysis, to predict factors of safety and corresponding slope movements. By equating the disturbing and resisting forces on potential slip surfaces, limit equilibrium method computes the corresponding factor of safety. These static sta...

The safety of road embankments is mainly assessed in the engineering practice by limit equilibrium analyses. Locating the critical slip surface of embankments and calculating the corresponding factor of safety is a crucial task. In this paper, the continuous ant colony optimisation algorithm is used to analyse the stability of slopes with non-circu...

Granular materials like sandy and gravely soils are composed of an assembly of individual particles. A given soil deposit or specimen has a specific arrangement of individual particles, clumps of particles, and void spaces, which along with the orientation of inter-particle contacts, encompasses the basis of the soil fabric concept. Experimentally...
This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation carried out to study the shrinkage cracking behavior of clay soil under natural and reinforced conditions. Waste human hair fibers collected from barbershops are used as reinforcement along with other natural/synthetic fibers such as coir fibers and polypropylene fibers. Effect of rei...
