Evaluation of sample disturbance of three Norwegian clays
Impact of data acquisition parameters and processing techniques on S-wave velocity profiles from MASW – Examples from Trondheim, Norway
The shear modulus is one of the most important engineering parameters, and it relates directly to the soil's shear-wave velocity. Shear-wave velocities can be derived from both laboratory measurements (e.g., bender elements) ...
GeoSuite – A Modular System for Geotechnical Design
Remarkable advances in the analysis tools of, for example slopes, embankment stability and settlements have happened since the 90s. Many are due to the information technology revolution in all aspects of geotechnical ...
Lessons learned from the 2015 Soerkjosen shoreline landslide in Norway
Soft and partly sensitive clays along the fjords of northern Norway pose a challenge for infrastructure. Learning from failures is essential in providing guidelines for future geotechnical work in such areas. A shoreline ...
Norway's National GeoTest Site Research Infrastructure (NGTS)
The landslide tsunami at Statland, mid-Norway January 2014
Study on the practices for preconsolidation stress evaluation from oedometer tests
The preconsolidation stress (pc') is determined from high-quality oedometer test results by a variety of interpretation methods. Sample quality in the database varies from very excellent to fair (i.e. class 1-2). Results ...
Correlations between shear wave velocity and geotechnical parameters in Norwegian clays
The purpose of this paper is to present guidelines and correlations to assists geotechnical engineers in estimating Vs profiles in Norwegian clays in the absence of site-specific data. For this, a database of in situ Vs ...
Use of the free fall cone penetrometer (FF-CPTU) in offshore landslide hazard assessment
Free fall penetrometer (FF-CPTU) testing can provide significant advantages over conventional CPTU investigation for shallow sub-surface offshore site investigations. Much work has been done on soil characterisation and ...
Impact of sample quality on CPTU correlations in clay – Example from the Rakkestad clay
As part of the zoning plan for the new 30 km long highway, E16, from Nybakk to Slomarka, an extensive laboratory and field testing campaign was conducted by NGI. The deposit along the highway is a normally to slightly ...
