Abstract
The paper describes the results of a comprehensive experimental program aimed to characterize block samples of silty deposits obtained from the deltaic zone of the Llobregat River ( Barcelona).Undisturbed block samples were obtained from a deep excavation taking place on interbedded sandy silts by hand retrieval. A detailed examination of the retrieved blocks, including suction measurements as well as Computed Axial Tomography (CAT) scans was performed before testing. Material characterization w...
