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 Y. Lu et al. Investigation of soil displacements caused by the press-in process for close-ended model piles using an imaging technique In recent years, installing piles using the press-in method has gained popularity in urban areas. However, pushing piles into the ground squeezes the surrounding ...
  • 2. article F. Uysal and O. Sivrikaya Numerical estimation of the one-dimensional consolidation behavior of clay The consolidation behavior of clayey soils is traditionally evaluated in the laboratory using the one-dimensional consolidometer test. A new oedometer cell design with a ring of 60 mm in height...
  • 4. article S. G. Jahromi and M. Sharafuddin Determining the pile bearing capacity use of pda test results and neural networks The dynamic loading or PDA test is one of the on-site experiments to estimate the bearing capacity of a pile. This test is based on the wave-propagation theory and can provide a good estimate of the bearing capacity of a pile as well as an assessment of the health of the pile...
  • 5. article C. He et al. Mechanical properties and constitutive model for artificially structured soils with an initial stress-induced anisotropy A series of triaxial compression tests was performed on artificially structured soil samples with an initial stress- -induced anisotropy at confining pressures of ...
  • 7. article E. Bassari and G. Ozden Effects of grain shape on the standard penetration test and particle packing Coarse soils can contain flaky grains in addition to rounded or angular grains, along with a varying fines content. Depending on the regional geology, however, the mica grain content can be remarkable...

  • 3. article J. Duque et al. Observation of extensive mass movements in the Lipica II quarry with an EL beam displacement sensor The maximum and minimum void ratios define the loosest and densest conditions of a granular soil. Correlations with some granulometric properties of soil are of interest for practical applications but the experimental ...
  • 6. article H. Khelalfa The consolidation matrix and the consolidation circle In geotechnical engineering, the consolidation and settlement of structures are among the major problems an engineer must deal with. An appropriate estimation of a soil’s settlement is of significant importance, since it directly influences the performance of buildings and infrastructures that are built on soil ...
