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...
