  • Geology and Settlementby Dora P. Crouch

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 124.99

    This study explains the Greco-Roman urban form as it relates to the geological basis at selected sites in the Mediterranean basin. Each of the sites--Argos, Delphi, Ephesus, and Syracuse among them--has manifested in its physical form the geology on which it stood and from which it was made. "By demonstrating the dependence of a group of cities on... more...

  • The Mechanics of Soils and Foundations, Second Editionby John Atkinson

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 172.95

    Ideal for undergraduates of geotechnical engineering for civil engineers, this established textbook sets out the basic theories of soil mechanics in a clear and straightforward way; combining both classical and critical state theories and giving students a good grounding in the subject which will last right through into a career as a geotechnical... more...

  • Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineeringby Charles W. W. Ng; Bruce Menzies

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 231.00

    Analytical and comprehensive, this state-of-the-art book, examines the mechanics and engineering of unsaturated soils, as well as explaining the laboratory and field testing and research that are the logical basis of this modern approach to safe construction in these hazardous geomaterials; putting them into a logical framework for civil engineering... more...

  • Reliability-Based Design in Geotechnical Engineeringby Kok-Kwang Phoon

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 199.95

    Reliability-based design is the only engineering methodology currently available which can ensure self-consistency in both physical and probabilistic terms.  It is also uniquely compatible with the theoretical basis underlying other disciplines such as structural design. It is especially relevant as geotechnical design becomes subject to increasing... more...
