  • 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...

  • Theoretical and Numerical Unsaturated Soil Mechanicsby Tom Schanz

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 289.00

    These proceedings are a continuation of the series of International Conferences in Germany entitled "Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils." The primary objective is to discuss and understand unsaturated soil behaviour such that engineered activities are made better with times in terms of judgement and quality. We all realise by now that in addition... more...
