  • Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook, Second Editionby Roy E. Hunt

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 210.00

    The Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook provides the tools necessary for fusing geological characterization and investigation with critical analysis for obtaining engineering design criteria. The second edition updates this pioneering reference for the 21 st century, including developments that have occurred in the twenty years since... more...

  • Advances in X-ray Tomography for Geomaterialsby Desrues Jacques; Gioacchino Viggiani

    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...

  • 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...

  • Experimental Rock Mechanicsby Kiyoo Mogi

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 184.95

    Fracture and flow of rocks under stress and their geophysical and seismological implications raise fundamental questions in rock mechanics, particularly in the areas of tectonophysics and seismology. This text exclusively addresses the deformation and fracture of rock specimens under general triaxial compression, in which all three principal stresses... more...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Soil Engineeringby Fu Hua Chen

    Taylor and Francis 1999; US$ 164.95

    In the last forty years, at least fifty books have been written on the subject of soil mechanics, most of them textbooks. Only a few touch on practical applications. Soil Engineering: Testing, Design, and Remediation supplies the information needed to fill the gap between textbook learning and practical know-how. When engineers deal with major projects,... more...
