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 In 2004 Slovenia was accepted into the European Union. At the same time the first issue of the international journal of Acta Geotechnica Slovenica (AGS) was published by the Chair of Geotechnical Engineering as part of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Maribor. We are now celebrating our 10-year anniversary...
  • 1. article B. Dolinar & S. Škrabl Atterberg limits in relation to other properties of fine-grained soils In soil mechanics the Atterberg limits are the most distinctive and the easiest property of fine-grained soils to measure. As they depend on the same physical factors as the other mechanical properties of soils ...
  • 3. article Osman Sivrikaya et al. Prediction of the compaction parameters for coarse-grained soils with fines content by MLR and GEP The determination of the compaction parameters of soils, the maximum dry unit weight and the optimum water content, at various compaction energy levels is an important process. The aim of this study is to develop ...
  • 4. article B. Ebrahimian & A. Nazari Evolutionary-based prediction of ε50 for the lateral load-displacement behavior of piles in clays Analyzing piles that are subjected to lateral loads reveals that their behavior depends on the soil’s resistance at any point along the pile as a function of the pile’s deflection, known as the p-y curve. On the other hand...

  • 2. article Vedran Jagodnik et al. On the application of a mixed finite-element approach to beam-soil interaction In this paper the deformation of a Bernoulli beam resting on Winkler's soil is reviewed in terms of the mixed finite-element methodology. While the stiffness matrix of the Bernoulli beam problem utilizing the ...
  • 5. article Srinivas Kadali et al. Investigations to establish the influence of the thermal energy field on soil properties This paper describes details of a study to investigate and demonstrate the changes undergone by soil when it is exposed to elevated temperatures. Such situations are commonly encountered while designing the foundations for the furnaces, boiler units, forging units...
