• A multidisciplinary study of shoreline landslides:From geological development to geohazard assessment in the bay of Trondheim, Mid-Norway 

      L'Heureux, Jean-Sébastien (Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:143, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
      The periodic occurrence of landslides in near-shore environments is common worldwide and poses a constant threat to coastal communities. Multidisciplinary studies on a regional scale have shown to be fruitful in understanding ...
    • An evaluation of in situ measurement methods of K_0^´ in sensitive clays 

      Almarza Galdón, Beatriz María (Master thesis, 2020)
      The determination of the in situ stress state within the frame of any geotechnical problem is crucial. The coefficient of earth pressure at rest (K_0^') is an important parameter for numerical analysis and laboratory test ...
    • Effekten av hurtig vannsenking på løsmasseskråninger 

      Normann, Kristin Grinna (Master thesis, 2021)
      Hurtig vannsenking forekommer ofte i reservoarer og regulerte elver. Det skjer både i tilknytning til dambrudd og ved kontrollert senking av vannstanden. Dette har vist seg å føre til instabilitet i løsmasseskråninger som ...
    • Evaluation of sample disturbance of three Norwegian clays 

      Paniagua, P; L'Heureux, Jean-Sébastien; Carroll, Roselyn; Kåsin, Kristoffer; Sjursen, Morten Andreas; Amundsen, Helene A. (Chapter, 2017)
      The quality and reliability of laboratory test data in sensitive clay can significantly be affected by sample disturbance. In turn, sample disturbance may affect key design parameters such as compressibility, preconsolidation ...
    • Field and Laboratory Investigations to Evaluate the Coefficient of Earth Pressure at Rest - NGTS Flotten Quick Clay Test Site 

      Ofstad, Christian Strømme; Lindgård, Anders (Master thesis, 2017)
      The coefficient of earth pressure at rest is a key geotechnical parameter, required in almost any investigation of material behaviour. A review of literature on the in situ and laboratory determination of K0' has been ...
    • Lessons learned from the 2015 Soerkjosen shoreline landslide in Norway 

      L'Heureux, Jean-Sébastien; Skotheim, Arne Åsmund; Emdal, Arnfinn; Lyche, Einar; Christensen, Stein Olav; Hellum, Øyvind S. (Chapter, 2017)
      Soft and partly sensitive clays along the fjords of northern Norway pose a challenge for infrastructure. Learning from failures is essential in providing guidelines for future geotechnical work in such areas. A shoreline ...
    • Norway's National GeoTest Site Research Infrastructure (NGTS) 

      L'Heureux, Jean-Sébastien; Lunne, Tom; Lacasse, Suzanne; Carroll, Roselyn; Strandvik, Stein Oddvar; Instanes, Arne; Sinitsyn, Anatoly; Degago, Samson Abate; Nordal, Steinar (Chapter, 2017)
      Benchmarking is a key to the reliability of the solutions in geotechnical engineering, both for testing and verifying innovative soil investigation methods and verifying and calibrating foundation solutions. NGI and its ...
    • Physical experiments on CPTU thin-layer effects of thin clay layers embedded in sand 

      Hammer, Hallvard Berner (Master thesis, 2020)
      CPTU er et utmerket verktøy for å karakterisere stratigrafi og målinger kan brukes til parametertolkning i homogene jordarter. Målinger i lagdelt jord med tynne lag, relativt til diameteren på sonden, vil påvirkes betydelig ...
