  • Drilled Shafts in Rockby Lianyang Zhang

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 231.00

    Drilled shafts in rock are widely used as foundations of heavy structures such as highway bridges and tall buildings. Although much has been learned about the analysis and design of drilled shafts in rock, all the major findings are published in the form of reports and articles in technical journals and conference proceedings. This book is the first... more...

  • Geotechnical Engineeringby V.N.S. Murthy

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 154.95

    A must have reference for any engineer involved with foundations, piers, and retaining walls, this remarkably comprehensive volume illustrates soil characteristic concepts with examples that detail a wealth of practical considerations, It covers the latest developments in the design of drilled pier foundations and mechanically stabilized earth retaining... more...

  • Reinforced Soil Engineeringby Hoe I. Ling; Dov Leshchinsky; Fumio Tatsuoka

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 262.00

    This one-of-a-kind reference evaluates the efficacy, stability, and strength of various soil walls, slopes, and structures enhanced by geosynthetic materials. Offering stimulating contributions from more than 50 leading specialists in the field, Reinforced Soil Engineering compiles recent innovations in design layout, controlled construction, and geosynthetic... more...

  • Geology and Settlementby Dora P. Crouch

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 99.99

    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 Stability of Slopesby Eddie Bromhead

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 367.00

    The new edition of this successful book has been thoroughly revised to take account of recent advances in our understanding of slope stability and instability. more...

  • Plasticity and Geotechnicsby Hai-Sui Yu

    Springer 2007; US$ 269.00

    Attempts to summarize the major developments in the field of plasticity theory for geotechnical materials and its applications to geotechnical analysis and design. This book covers several developments of appropriate constitutive theories of stress-strain relations for geomaterials and a range of analytical and computational techniques. more...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 189.95

    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...

  • Geotechnical Engineering, Second Editionby Renato Lancellotta

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 199.95

    Established as a standard textbook for students of geotechnical engineering, this second edition of Geotechnical Engineering provides a solid grounding in the mechanics of soils and soil-structure interaction. Renato Lancellotta gives a clear presentation of the fundamental principles of soil mechanics and demonstrates how these principles... more...

  • Decoding Eurocode 7by Andrew Bond; Andrew Harris

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 146.95

    Decoding Eurocode 7 provides a detailed examination of Eurocode 7 Parts 1 and 2 and an overview of the associated European and International standards. The detail of the code is set out in summary tables and diagrams, with extensive. Fully annotated worked examples demonstrate how to apply it to real designs. Flow diagrams explain how reliability... more...

  • Strength Analysis in Geomechanicsby Serguey A. Elsoufiev

    Springer 2006; US$ 149.00

    Presents a different approach for the solution of geomechanical problems, taking into account deformation and fractures of soils in explicitly. The method in this book reveals the influence of the form of a structure on its ultimate state. It also considers the rheological law which accounts for large strains, and a non-linear unsteady creep. more...
