    Abstract: Soil degradation is wide spread and serious throughout the Ethiopian Highlands. It is also a major watershed problem in many developing countries causing significant loss of soil fertility, loss of productivity and environmental degradation. This research has, therefore, been carried out to evaluate the soil erosion risk and quantify the major land... Show More

    Abstract: More than 850 large scale landslides in the two main active seismic zones (Alborz and Zagros) in Iran have been studied over the past nearly four decades. Of these, remedial designs made by the author for major engineering works in the 180 or so landslides encountered in the projects have, to the present, been successful. This work has led me to th...

    Abstract: This paper aims at introducing the Fall Cone Test (FCT) to obtain the shear strength of clayey soils and reveals its applicability by comparing the results obtained from that of Unconfined Compression Test (UCT). Furthermore, the liquid and plastic limit obtained from Casagrande method also compared with that obtained from FCT. For these, soils wer... Show More

    Abstract: In worldwide, soil erosion effect on the water storage structures is significant for proper management of water resource and its use. The effect of soil erosion, improper management system and lack of suitable soil conservation measures have played important role for food production, and global warming problem. For modeling of soil erosion in Nashe... Show More
