    • Glacio-marine clay resistivity as a proxy for remoulded shear strength: correlations and limitations 

      Long, Michael; Pfaffhuber, Andreas Aspmo; Bazin, Sara; Kåsin, Kristoffer; Gylland, Anders Samstad; Montaflia, Alberto (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In geotechnical engineering in Norway, Sweden and Canada the presence of sensitive and/or quick clays poses a major challenge. Formation of these clays involves the leaching of salt from the pore fluid. Thus it has been ...
    • In situ detection of sensitive clays – Part I: Selected test methods 

      Sandven, Rolf Birger; Gylland, Anders Samstad; Kåsin, Kristoffer; Pfaffhuber, Andreas Aspmo; Long, M. (Chapter, 2016)
      Sensitive and quick clays are typically found in Norway, Sweden and Canada, and are characterized by a remoulded undrained shear strength that is considerably lower than the undisturbed shear strength. In geotechnical ...
    • In situ detection of sensitive clays – Part II: Results 

      Sandven, R.; Gylland, A.; Montafia, Alberto; Kåsin, Kristoffer; Pfaffhuber, Andreas Aspmo; Long, M. (Chapter, 2016)
      Sensitive and quick clays are typically found in Norway, Sweden and Canada, and are characterised by a remoulded undrained shear strength considerably lower than the undisturbed shear strength. In geotechnical engineering, ...
    • Installation of fully grouted piezometers 

      Kåsin, Kristoffer; Augland, Amund (Chapter, 2016)
      In the planning and design phase of the E16 Sandvika – Wøyen road project in Bærum Municipality in Norway, NGI installed a large number of piezometers using the "Fully grouted" installation method. Because of layered soil ...
