• Waste timber pyrolysis in a medium-scale unit: Emission budgets and biochar quality 

      Sørmo, Erlend; Silvani, Ludovica; Thune, Gorm; Gerber, Helmut; Schmidt, Hans-Peter; Cornelissen, Gerard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Pyrolysis of organic waste or woody materials yields a stable carbonaceous product that can be mixed into soil and is often termed “biochar”. During pyrolysis carbon-containing gases are emitted, mainly volatile organic ...
    • Wetting-Drying Response of an Unsaturated Pyroclastic Soil Vegetated with Long-Root Grass 

      Capobianco, Vittoria; Cascini, Leonardo; Cuomo, Sabatino; Foresta, Vito (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      This paper investigates the effect of a long-root grass on the hydraulic response of a partially saturated pyroclastic soil. The work is based on both long-term monitoring under atmospheric conditions and short-term ...
    • Wetting-induced collapse behaviour of a natural and vegetated coarse pyroclastic soil 

      Capobianco, Vittoria; Cascini, Laonardo; Cuomo, Sabatino; Foresta, Vito (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Unsaturated pyroclastic soils originated by Vesuvius volcano show a collapsible behaviour upon wetting with a significant reduction in volume and rearrangement of solid skeleton. The paper investigates the role played by ...
    • Øysand research site: Geotechnical characterisation of deltaic sandy-silty soils 

      Quinteros, Santiago; Gundersen, Aleksander Sæthereng; L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Carraro, J. Antonio H.; Jardine, Richard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This paper describes the geology and geotechnical engineering properties of the fluvial and deltaic gravelly-sandy-silty sediments at Øysand, Norway. Geophysical and geotechnical site investigations carried out between ...
