  • 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...

  • Handbook of Geotechnical Investigation and Design Tablesby Burt G. Look

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 119.95

    This practical handbook of properties for soils and rock contains, in a concise tabular format, the key issues relevant to geotechnical investigations, assessments and designs in common practice. In addition, there are brief notes on the application of the tables. These data tables are compiled for experienced geotechnical professionals who require... 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 ROCK MECHANICS by John P Harrison; John A Hudson

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 225.00

    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...

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

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 73.95

    Engineering rock mechanics is the discipline used to design structures built in rock. These structures encompass building foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric schemes, mines, radioactive waste repositories and geothermal energy projects: in short, any structure built on or in a rock mass. Despite the variety of projects... more...

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

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 220.00

    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...

  • Coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical Processes in Geo-systemsby Ove Stephansson; John Hudson; Lanru Jing

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 370.00

    Among the most important and exciting current steps forward in geo-engineering is the development of coupled numerical models. They represent the basic physics of geo-engineering processes which can include the effects of heat, water, mechanics and chemistry. Such models provide an integrating focus for the wide range of geo-engineering disciplines.... more...

  • Rock Mechanics on a Geological Baseby R. Pusch

    Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 72.95

    Until a few years ago, hydropower, road tunneling and mining were the main fields interested in rock mechanics. Now, however, rock mechanics is becoming increasingly important in many more branches - the most significant globally being the disposal of hazardous, especially radiaoctive, waste in deeply located repositories. This has raised a number... more...

  • Advanced Soil Mechanicsby Braja M. Das

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 109.95

    This revised and updated edition of Advanced Soil Mechanics presents a step-by-step guide to all aspects of the subject to students, and addresses a wide range of topics in a logical and extensively illustrated approach, including: grain-size distribution; the nature of water in clay; consistency of cohesive soils; weight-volume relationships; soil... more...

  • Advances in Deep Foundationsby Yoshiaki Kikuchi; Jun Otani; Makoto Kimura; Yoshiyuki Morikawa

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 231.00

    Civil Engineering has recently seen enormous progress in the core field of the construction of deep foundations. This book is the result of the International Workshop on Recent Advances in Deep Foundations (IWDPF07), which was held in Yokosuka, Japan from the 1 st to the 2 nd of February, 2007. Topics under discussion in this book include recent... more...
