Alankrit Walia; Amrit Kumar Roy

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022, , Pages 767-780


  The complex geography of the Himalayan mountain range, along with the natural circumstances that already exist and the ways in which people have influenced and intervened in the region- makes various regions of the range vulnerable to slope instability. The slope stability of the area that is the subject ...  Read More

Rock Fall Hazard Assessment using GeoRock 2D along Swat Motorway, Pakistan

M. Adil; S. Raza; I. Amin

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 351-365


  Despite the slope stability measures, rock falls are witnessed at section KM-37 of the Swat motorway (M-16), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The geotechnical data analysis of the site reveals that although the chances of plane/slope failures are reduced from 43% to 23% with the help of the existing design, ...  Read More

Semi-Analytical Study of Settlement of Two Interfering Foundations Placed on a Slope

H. Haghgouei; A. Reza Kargar; M. H. Khosravi; M. Amini

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 457-470


  In many engineering constructions, the foundations should be built adjacent to each other. Therefore, the effect of interfering of close foundations should be considered in the design stage. In this research work, the effect of interference of closely separated foundations resting on a slope on the elastic ...  Read More
