  • Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formationsby Roy E. Hunt

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 119.95

    Properly understanding and characterizing geologic materials and formations is vital for making critical engineering decisions. Identifying and classifying rock masses and soil formations allows reasonable estimation of their characteristic properties. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered Geotechnical Engineering Investigation... more...

  • A Geology for Engineers, Seventh Editionby F.G.H. Blyth; Michael de Freitas

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 66.95

    No engineering structure can be built on the ground or within it without the influence of geology being experienced by the engineer. Yet geology is 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 geology and its relationship to engineering. In... more...

  • Geotechnical Investigation Methodsby Roy E. Hunt

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 119.95

    The investigation phase is the most important segment of any geotechnical study. Using the correct methods and properly interpreting the results are critical to a successful investigation. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook, Geotechnical Investigation Methods offers clear, concise,... more...

  • Rock Quality, Seismic Velocity, Attenuation and Anisotropyby Nick Barton

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 241.00

    Seismic measurements take many forms, and appear to have a universal role in the Earth Sciences. They are the means for most easily and economically interpreting what lies beneath the visible surface. There are huge economic rewards and losses to be made when interpreting the shallow crust or subsurface more, or less accurately, as the case may be.... more...

  • Unsaturated Soilsby T. Schanz

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 339.00

    Understanding the behaviour of unsaturated soils is becoming exclusively essential for geotechnical engineers and designers. This book includes the Proceedings of the International Conference ISSMGE uniting researchers and practitioners in geotechnical engineering on a single platform and discussing the problems associated with unsaturated soils. The... more...

  • Bifurcations, Instabilities, Degradation in Geomechanicsby George Exadaktylos; Ionannis G. Vardoulakis

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 219.00

    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...

  • Rock Mass Classificationby B. Singh; R K Goel

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 205.00

    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...

  • ENGINEERING ROCK MECHANICS by John P Harrison; John A Hudson

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 230.00

    Engineering Rock Mechanics Part II: Illustrative Worked Examples can be used as an independent book or alternatively it complements an earlier publication called Engineering Rock Mechanics: An Introduction to the Principles by the same authors. It contains illustrative worked examples of engineering rock mechanics in action as the subject applies... more...

  • Dynamic Soil-Structure Interactionby C. Zhang; John P Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 260.00

    Dynamic Soil-structure interaction is one of the major topics in earthquake engineering and soil dynamics since it is closely related to the safety evaluation of many important engineering projects, such as nuclear power plants, to resist earthquakes. In dealing with the analysis of dynamic soil-structure interactions, one of the most difficult tasks... more...

  • Engineering Geological Advances in Japan for the New Millenniumby Y. Kanaori; Kazuyoshi Tanaka; M. Chigira

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 225.00

    The geology of the Japanese Islands is enormously complicated because of the active tectonism that has taken place on the boundary between the Pacific and Eurasian plates. Geological formations there are intricately deformed and displaced by many active faults. Hence, in planning for and siting large construction projects, such as nuclear power stations,... more...
