ACTA GEOTECHNICA SLOVENICA aims to play an important role in publishing high-quality, theoretical papers from important and emerging areas that will have a lasting impact on fundamental and practical aspects of geomechanics and geotechnical engineering. It publishes papers from the following areas: soil and rock mechanics, engineering geology, environmental geotechnics, geosynthetic, geotechnical structures, numerical and analytical methods, computer modelling, optimization of geotechnical structures, field and laboratory testing.
  • 1. article A. Lazar et al. Monitoring of the Belca rockfall This paper reviews the monitoring of the rock block above the forest road of Belca Jepca near the village of Belca in the municipality of Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. A rockfall in part of the block occurred in autumn 2014. Both classic and some new measurement technologies were used. ...
  • 2. article V. Vukadin & V. Jovičić S_BRICK: A constitutive model for soils and soft rocks Materials known in the literature as hard soils and soft rocks are widely spread, natural materials that are commonly encountered in engineering practise. It was demonstrated that some of these materials can be described through the general theoretical framework for structured soils set by ...
  • 4. article G. Misir Predicting the uplift capacity of vertically located two-plate anchors Soil anchors are generally used for structures that are subjected to pullout forces, such as offshore floating bodies, transmission towers, structures requiring lateral resistance or submerged platforms etc. Multi-plate anchors are used as a foundation that apply either large ...
  • 5. article B. S. Olek Consolidation analysis of clayey soils using analytical tools The uncoupled Terzaghi consolidation equation (excess pore pressure only) is widely used to predict the rate and magnitude of settlements in clayey soils. The theoretical solution is based on the approach of considering the soil permeability and compressibility as one parameter ...
  • 7. article J. Stacho The design of drilled displacement system piles using the cavity expansion theory Drilled Displacement System (DDS) piles are an innovative technology for pile foundations. These DDS piles are created by rotary drilling with a simultaneous full displacement of the soil in a horizontal direction. The optimal design of DDS piles can be obtained in sandy soils ...

  • 3. article Z. Li et al. Loading and unloading test of hard rock and its elastoplastic damage coupling model Deep-buried engineering and test results show that hard rocks behave as part of an elastoplastic damage coupling process. The coupling effect can contribute to the weakness of the surrounding rocks and the extension ...
  • 6. article C. Qiang et al. The effects of the geometric parameters of a circular shallow foundation on its uplift bearing capacity in loess soil In order to revel the effect of the geometric size parameter of a circular shallow foundation on its uplift capacity in loess soil, the shaft diameter d, the enlarge angle of the slab θ and ...
