• Characterization and Engineering properties of Natural Soils used for Geotesting 

      L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Lunne, Tom (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Benchmarking is of significant importance in geological and geotechnical engineering, for testing and verifying innovative soil investigation methods and foundation solutions. This Special Issue aims to present detailed ...
    • Characterization and engineering properties of the NGTS Onsøy soft clay site 

      Gundersen, Aleksander; Hansen, Ragnhild; Lunne, Tom; L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Strandvik, Stein Oddvar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      In the 1960s, NGI investigated numerous potential research sites and established the first Onsøy soft clay site in 1968. In 2016, the NGTS project established five research sites, one of which is the NGTS Onsøy soft clay ...
    • CPTU correlations for Norwegian clays: an update 

      Paniagua Lopez, Ana Priscilla; D'Ignazio, Marco; L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Lunne, Tom; Karlsrud, Kjell (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Geotechnical design in clay areas in Norway is mainly based on piezocone (CPTU) tests results. Strength and stiffness parameters are usually derived from CPTU parameters and empirical correlations. In order to improve ...
    • Halden research site: geotechnical characterization of a post glacial silt 

      Blaker, Øyvind; Carroll, Roselyn; Paniagua Lopez, Ana Priscilla; DeGroot, Don J.; L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      This paper describes the geology and geotechnical engineering properties of the Halden silt; a 10–12 m thick deposit of fjord-marine, low plasticity clayey silt. Over the last six years, the test site has been well ...
    • Site characterisation and some examples from large scale testing at the Klett quick clay research site 

      Long, Mike; L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Bache, Bjørn Kristian Fiskvik; Lund, Alf Kristian; Hove, Svein; Sødal, Karl Gunnar; Amundsen, Helene Alexandra; Nordal, Steinar; Montafia, Alberto (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The Klett research site was developed in conjunction with the new E6 developments south of Trondheim, Norway. The site comprises non-sensitive clay to about 6 m to 8 m and quick clay with significant silt lenses below this ...
    • Spatial variability of medium dense sand deposit 

      Liu, Zhongqiang; Amdal, Åse Marit Wist; L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Lacasse, Suzanne; Nadim, Farrokh; Xie, Xin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      This paper presents a study of the spatial variability of the cone resistance in a medium dense sand deposit in Norway. Spatial variability studies have been done earlier for clay deposits, but there are few results available ...
    • The Tiller-Flotten research site: Geotechnical characterization of a very sensitive clay deposit 

      L Heureux, Jean-Sebastien; Lindgård, Anders; Emdal, Arnfinn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The Tiller-Flotten research site was developed through the Norwegian GeoTest site (NGTS) project. The site consists of a more than 50 m thick marine clay deposit. The top 7.5 m of the deposit shows a low to medium sensitivity, ...
    • 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 ...
