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 We would like to announce that the Editorial Board of the scientific journal Acta Geotechnika Slovenica (AGS) has three new members: Prof. Dr. Devendra Narain Singh (Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay), Prof. Dr. Jianhua Yin (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University) and Prof. Dr. Nasser Khalili...
  • 1. article D. Peila et al. The behaviour of a two-component back-filling grout used in a tunnel-boring machine The instantaneous filling of the annulus that is created behind the segment lining at the end of the tail during the TBM advance is an operation of paramount importance. Its main goal is to minimize...
  • 3. article N. Laredj et al. A coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical model of expansive clays subjected to heating and hydratation The focus of this work is to provide a numerical formulation for coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical processes in unsaturated expansive clays, especially in compacted bentonite, with a multiphase fluid flow...
  • 4. article M. Kamalzare and R. Ziaie-Moayed Influence of geosynthetic reinforcement on the shear strength characteristics of two-layer sub-grade Due to the low bearing capacity of soft clayey soils in places that because of economic, military or geological conditions we are oblige to build a structure on, geosynthetics will be used to reinforce the soil and improve...
  • 6. article Đ. Ćosić et al. Geo-information technology for disaster risk assessment The Serbian territory (including the territory of the former Yugoslavia) has been continuously exposed to different hazards, often with tragic consequences. Earthquakes and floods, usually followed by landslides, are the most dominant hazards in that region...

  • 2. article M. U. Pavlič and B. Praznik Detecting karstic zones during highway construction using ground-penetrating radar Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) has been applied to determine the subsurface karstic features during the construction of the national highway in the south-eastern part of Slovenia...
  • 5. article D. Boumezerane et al. Fuzzy-sets decision-support system for geotechnical site soundings A geotechnical site investigation is an important and complex task that is generally carried out in two steps. The first step, consisting of preliminary soundings, guides the subsequent site characterization...
