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.
  • Editorial L. Trauner Editorial The aim of the Editorial Board of Acta Geotechnica Slovenica is to publish high-quality scientific and professional articles, since this is the only route to the journal gaining an international reputation. However, we are aware that we can only achieve this goal with the help of authors who trust us...
  • 1. article A. Petkovšek et al. A laboratory characterization of soils and clay-bearing rocks using the Enslin-Neff water-adsorption test The application of the Enslin-Neff water-adsorption test for the determination of soil-index properties has been investigated on commercially available reference minerals and on real soils...
  • 3. article A. Gosar A microtremor HVSR study of the seismic site effects in the area of the town of Brežice (SE Slovenia) The wider region of Brežice is one of the most seismically active areas of Slovenia. The most damaging earthquake occurred in 1917, when Brežice was hit by an ML=5.7 earthquake that had an VIII MSK maximum intensity...
  • 4. article I. Tasič and F. Runovc Automatic s-phase arrival identification for local earthquakes In the case of a strong local earthquake, a quick report about the earthquake’s location is expected. Such reports are usually performed automatically, where the identification of the seismic-phase arrival of the various seismic waves on the seismogram is the most important task...
  • 6. article L. Chien et al. The Geo-Mechanics Behavior of Soft Marine Silts Under a Nearshore Rubble-Mound Breakwater In this study, the soft marine silts under a rubble-mound breakwater in Ma-Zu of west Taiwan are adopted as a test sample. The specimens were prepared by a new, remolded method...

  • 2. article Z. Tomanović Influence of Ko on the creep properties of marl The influence of the stress state on the deformation response of a rock mass has been experimentally examined on uniaxial, bi-axial and three-axial specimens of marl at short loading and in creep tests for periods of 3 to 180 days. The lateral (horizontal) pressure significantly change...
  • 5. article G. Vilhar and V. Jovičić Measurement and interpretation of the small strain stiffness of Boštanj silty sand This paper presents measurements, and an interpretation of these measurements, based on the use of bender-element probes for Boštanj silty sand. The samples were prepared at different initial void ratios and isotropically...
