Ground borne vibrations generated by the passage of underground trains may change over time due to objective causes, such as increasing weight and speed of trains or ageing of the infrastructure components, as well as a variation in the dynamic response of the soil surrounding the tunnel. Among the possible causes of changes in the soil...

This paper interprets the hydromechanical behaviour of a steep, forested, instrumented slope during an artificial rainfall event, which triggered a shallow slope failure 15 h after rainfall initiation. The soil's mechanical response has been simulated by coupled hydro-mechanical finite-element analyses, using a critical state constitutive...

Increasing climatic stresses accelerate the degradation of highly organic soils, like peat, by increasing their drying rate above the water table and their decomposition rate under water. Recent experimental studies provide evidence of the consequences of these processes on the hydro-mechanical properties of peat. However, modelling the...
