- Spon Press 1993; US$ 190.00
This book reviews the techniques which are used to improve the engineering behaviour of soils, either in situ or when they are used as a construction material. It is a straightforward, well illustrated and readable account of the techniques and more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 299.99
Understanding the behaviour of unsaturated soils is becoming exclusively essential for geotechnical engineers and designers. This book includes the Proceedings of the International Conference "From Experimental Evidence Towards Numerical Modeling of Unsaturated Soils" uniting researchers and practitioners in geotechnical engineering on a single platform... more...
- ISTE 2006; US$ 220.00
Originally developed for use in healthcare, X-ray computed tomography has been increasingly used in the field of non-destructive material testing. Computed tomography (CT) is useful for studying a wide range of materials, for example, rock, bone, ceramic, metal and soft tissue. Recently, the study of geomaterials (including granulates, soils, rocks... more...

Every engineering structure, whether it's a building, bridge or road, is affected by the ground on which it is built. Geology is of fundamental importance when deciding on the location and design of all engineering works, and it is essential that engineers have a basic knowledge of the subject. Engineering Geology introduces the fundamentals of the... more...
- CRC Press 2006; US$ 107.95
Properly understanding and characterizing geologic materials and formations is vital for making critical engineering decisions. With clear, concise, and hands-on guidance, Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations provides a basis for recognizing, identifying, and classifying the various rock and soil types. The book describes these rock... more...
- Taylor & Francis 2007; US$ 219.95
This volume is of particular interest to geophysicists, engineering geologists and geologists who are engaged in the interpretation of seismic measurements on rock engineering and petroleum engineering projects. The treatment is deliberately non-mathem more...
- Taylor & Francis 1984; US$ 60.95
No engineering structure can be built on the ground or within it without the influence of geology being experienced by the engineer. Yet geology must remain an ancillary subject to students of engineering and it is therefore essential that their training is supported by a concise, reliable and usable text on the subject of geology and its relationship... more...
- Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 200.00
Rock Mass Classifications - A Practical Approach in Civil Engineering was written in response to the many unanswered questions regarding this subject. Questions such as - Is Classification reasonably reliable? Can it be successful in crisis management of geohazards? Can a single Classification system be general for all rock structures? Is Classification... more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 149.99
Covers modeling of bifurcation, structural failure of geomaterials and geostructures, advanced analytical, numerical and experimental techniques, and application and development of generalised continuum models and more. more...
