Mechanical behaviour of clastic formations at shallow – medium depths which bear hydrocarbon reservoirs could exhibit an important non-linear influence of the strain on the formation stiffness during depletion. Particularly in the early reservoir production stage, characterized by high uncertainty and little ground movement data for back-analysis, reliable determination of formation stiffness at...

The paper presents the results of an experimental campaign carried out at the Sasso Poiano mine, close to Varese, northern Italy. The area is near a historic site, inhabited villages and a well-known lake, so that the use of explosive is subject to severe restrictions imposed by Italian standards. The exploitation is therefore carried out by blasting with low specific charge (PF=50 g/m3) in order to obtain...

The rapid development of the mechanized tunneling in current decades has raised serious concerns about the environmental impact of large quantities of the muck. EPB-TBMs require the use of foaming agents for optimizing the soil conditioning. These agents could contain some chemicals (e.g., sodium lauryl ether sulfate – SLES) that are not included in the current legislation at the Italian or EU level....

In recent years, the village of Colsano in the Venosta Valley has witnessed the recurring phenomenon of rock mass collapse. Large blocks from past landslides are still visible on the edge of the valley. The investigation has brought to light the presence of a strongly disintegrated rocky ridge, within a larger and more complex area, strongly disturbed by the presence of a Deep-Seated Gravitational Deformation of the Slope (DSGSD) still studied and examined in depth. The analysis of the kinematisms, in addition to the geological and geomechanical...

This paper illustrates the geological-technical problems encountered in the design and construction of the Küchelberg road tunnel, which constitutes the second completion lot of the Merano bypass in the province of Bolzano, and in particular the characteristics of the specifically developed monitoring system. The tunnel layout runs in an urban environment with low overburden for approximately 2 km in two clearly distinct geological conditions that affect approximately 50% of the tunnel: the Merano side (west) in alluvial soils, the Passirio side...

CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title.
CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. 2016-2019) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of these documents in these same four years (e.g. 2016 —19).
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
2019: 1.307
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)
2019: o.657
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal's impact.
Journal Metrics: CiteScore: 1.0 , Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.381 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.163
