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 B. Kovačič Determining the position of points on geologically unstable land with geodetic monitoring An accurate determination of tectonic displacements is very important for the safety of people and animals as well as for natural and artificial objects. When establishing the short-term and long-term displacements of land or objects, the expected displacements should ...
  • 2. article J. Peng et al. Experimental analysis of a high-speed-railway embankment intersecting steep ground fissures at different angles A high-speed-railway (HSR) embankment intersection with ground fissures is a commonly encountered engineering problem. This paper reports a series of experiments conducted on a reduced scale to investigate the ...
  • 4. article O. Sivrikaya & G. A. Yazıcı Two- and three-dimensional analyses of the effect of pile spacing in piled-raft foundations One of the important factors that have to be considered in the design of piled-raft foundations is the selection of the spacing between the piles. In this study, a piled-raft foundation having different pile-spacing configurations and resting on clayey soil was modeled using ...
  • 5. article M. F. Ahlinhan et al. Numerical analysis of the behaviour of a large-diameter monopile for offshore wind turbines Very-large-diameter monopiles are widely used foundations for offshore wind turbines, despite the limited guidance in the codes of practice. In the present study, three-dimensional finite-element (FE) analyses were carried out to determine the static capacity ...
  • 7. article A. Cherif Taiba et al. Effects of gradation on the mobilized friction angle for the instability and steady states of sand-silt mixtures: experimental evidence This paper deals with a laboratory study of the influence of low-plastic-fines content and grading characteristics on the instability and steady-state friction angle of sand-silt mixtures under monotonic loading conditions. For this purpose, a series of compression ...

  • 3. article F. E. Sánchez et al. Stress-strain behavior of blue marls from the Guadalquivir river basin in Spain This paper describes the geotechnical behavior of the Blue Marls from the Guadalquivir River Basin in Southern Spain, defined as high-plasticity clays that behave as a stiff, over- -consolidated clayey soil. These Blue Marls are, in general, classified as an inadequate material for reuse in various earthworks. In this study ...
  • 6. article Y. Song et al. Bearing capacity of a single pile in saturated and drained clay In this study the pile-soil interaction behavior of single, long, laterally loaded, embedded piles was investigated in both saturated and drained clay. The piles were hollow steel pipes with a diameter of 114 mm, a thickness of 2.5 mm, and a length-to-diameter ratio of 35. The piles ...
