  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
