Soft rocks in various forms of marly materials have an important role in the geological structure of Dalmatia (Croatia) and Budapest region (Hungary). These materials can cause serious problems in design and construction, due to their complex behavior under atmospheric conditions. For the purpose of better understanding soft rocks behavior and thei...

There are historic subsurface dimension stones in the capital of Hungary (Budapest) that were excavated in porous limestone. The stability of these subsurface openings is important, since most of them are located in urban areas, where existing buildings or new structures are planned to be built. The paper presents a detailed study considering the g...

The time-dependent stability of tunnels is an important and challenging topic, mainly when the tunnel is excavated in incompetent and weak rocks. The creep property of rock is one of the crucial mechanical properties of weak rock and the main factor affecting the long-term stability of rock masses. Also, water as an important environmental factor i...

Soft rocks have an important role in the geological structure of Dalmatia (Croatia) and Budapest area (Hungary). In general, soft rocks are transitional material between the hard rock and soft soil with compressive strength below 25 MPa. A lower limit of soft rock strength is a subject of many discussions in geotechnics. Most of the soft rock mater...

A Miskolc központjában elhelyezkedő Avas domb két részre osztható a lankásabb déli és a merede-kebb északi lejtőre. A lankás déli lejtőn a 70-es években építettek tízemeletes panelházakat. Az északi lejtő jóval meredekebb, ahol kanyargós keskeny utcák mentén, jó állapotú és teljesen elhanyagolt épü-letekkel is találkozhatunk. Ezekben a közös, hogy...

The mechanical behavior of the Buda Marl lies between those of rock and soil; it is therefore appropriate to define it as both weak rock and strong soil: some marl types behave like a weak rock and others like soil. In such cases the strength parameters of the material can be determined by rock mechanical or soil mechanical laboratory investigation...
