Particle loss and volume change on dissolution: experimental results and analysis of particle size and amount effects

Journal Article
McDougall, J., Kelly, D., & Barreto, D. (2013)
Particle loss and volume change on dissolution: experimental results and analysis of particle size and amount effects. Acta geotechnica, 8(6), 619-627. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11440-013-0212-0
Soil particles may be lost through dissolution, degradation or erosion. Regardless of the process of loss, there follows a change in soil structure both in terms of phase comp...

The influence of inter-particle friction and the intermediate stress ratio on soil response under generalised stress conditions

Journal Article
Barreto, D., & O'Sullivan, C. (2012)
The influence of inter-particle friction and the intermediate stress ratio on soil response under generalised stress conditions. Granular Matter, 14(4), 505-521. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10035-012-0354-z
Previous research studies have used either physical experiments or discrete element method (DEM) simulations to explore, independently, the influence of the coefficient of int...

The influence of particle geometry and the intermediate stress ratio on the shear behavior of granular materials

Journal Article
Xie, Y. H., Yang, Z. X., Barreto, D., & Jiang, M. D. (2017)
The influence of particle geometry and the intermediate stress ratio on the shear behavior of granular materials. Granular Matter, 19(2), 34-48. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10035-017-0723-8
The behavior of granular materials is very complex in nature and depends on particle shape, stress path, fabric, density, particle size distribution, amongst others. This pape...

Effect of particle loss on soil behaviour.

Presentation / Conference
Kelly, D., McDougall, J., & Barreto, D. (2012, August)
Effect of particle loss on soil behaviour. Paper presented at ICSE-6 6th International Conference on Scour and Erosion
Soil particle loss can result in strength and volume reductions which are difficult to predict. This paper investigates the influence of the removal of fractions of selected p...
