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 B. Dolinar Editorial The Editorial Board of Acta Geotechnica Slovenica is pleased to announce that the number of articles received by the journal has increased significantly. This demonstrates the improved recognition of our journal and a greater appreciation among our authors. We are, of course, very satisfied with such a response, which enables us to select some really excellent articles ...
  • 1. article T. Fabjan et al. Numerical simulation of intact rock behaviour via the continuum and Voronoi tesselletion models – a sensitivity analysis The numerical simulation of intact rock microstructure and its influence on macro-scale behaviour has received a lot of attention in the research community in recent years. Generating a grain-like ...
  • 3. article F. Jiang et al. A new method to test the anti-permeability strength of clay failure under high water pressure It is difficult to judge the failure of clay seepage under a high water pressure.This paper presents a new method to assess clay failure based on the anti-permeability strength, which is the critical water pressure to destroy the clay. An experiment is designed to test the value that avoids the problem ...
  • 4. article M. M. Hajitaheri & M. Hassanlourad Numerical modeling of negative skin friction on single vertical and batter pile In this paper the negative skin friction on single vertical and batter piles is investigated. First, a finite-element model (using ABAQUS software) based on the studies Lee et al. and Comodromos and Bareka was developed. After that, the results of the model were compared and validated. Then a single vertical end bearing and a single skin friction pile under different earth-surface loadings ...
  • 6. article J. C. Leal Vaca et al. The dry fraction of unsaturated soils An equation to account for the shear strength of unsaturated soils is proposed in this paper. This equation is defined as the equivalent stress, and is an extension of Murray’s equation. This approach applies to the general case of bi-modal structured soils showing a macrostructure and microstructure. The theoretical development considers the existence of a dry fraction ...
  • 7. article P. Han et al. Corrosion mechanisms of cemented soils in three different sulfate solutions In order to simulate and study the corrosion effects on the compressive strength of cemented soils that could be exposed in a polluted environment, a series of tests were conducted on cemented soil blocks cured with different concentrations of H2SO4, MgSO4, and Na2SO4 solutions. The test results show that the corrosion degree ...

  • 2. article I. Ružić et al. A stability assessment of coastal cliffs using digital imagery The investigated area around the Stara Baška settlement (the island of Krk, NE channel part of the Adriatic Sea) is in a delicate geodynamic balance. Marine erosion is quite prominent and the recorded cliff retreat between 1966 and 2004 was from 4 to 5 metres. The cliff slopes are formed in talus breccias. Strong waves and formations ...
  • 5. article Y. Zhuang & X. Cui Reinforced piled embankment of high-speed railway over soft soil: numerical and analytical investigation A geosynthetic, reinforced, piled embankment is an effective and economic method to solve the problems of possible bearing failure, unacceptable settlement and slope instability for an embankment built over soft soil; this has led to its widespread use, especially for high-speed railway embankments, ...
