Soil arching and ground deformation around tunnels in sandy grounds: review and new insights

Ghorban Khandouzi; Mohammad Hossein Khosravi

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 14 November 2023


  Granular materials used in engineering structures tend to experience arching under different geotechnical factors. Arching is a factor of load transfer from the destroyed zone to stable areas in these structures. Soil arching plays an important role in stress redistribution, settlement, and load on supports ...  Read More

Development of a New Experimental Technique for Dynamic Fracture Toughness Measurement of Rocks using Drop Weight Test

Gh. Khandouzi; H. Memarian; M. H. Khosravi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2020, , Pages 909-920


  The dynamic fracture characteristics of rock specimens play an important role in analyzing the fracture issues such as blasting, hydraulic fracturing, and design of supports. Several experimental methods have been developed for determining the dynamic fracture properties of the rock samples. However, ...  Read More
