Experimental relation between shear strength under low pressure and S-wave velocity of rock subjected to mechanical weathering

The article was published in the Elsevier - Journal - Soils and Foundation (SCOPUS, WoS-IF = 1.673) in collaboration with Professor Emeritus Ikuo Towhata (University of Tokyo) and Dr. Suguru Yamada (Osaka City University), Japan. The study investigates the long-term effects of mechanical weathering on the stability of natural slopes by reproducing the weathering process in the laboratory. A relationship is developed for quick assessment of the strength of rock by briefly measuring the weathered surface layer's S-wave velocity. The relationship will assist practitioners in quickly screening potentially unstable slopes.  Read More...
