  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Modern Trends in Geomechanicsby W. Wu; H.-S. Yu

    Springer 2006; US$ 309.00

    This book is the condensed outcome of the "International Workshop on Modern Trends in Geomechanics" held in Vienna, Austria 27- 29, June 2005. It presents fundamental aspects of theoretical and experimental Geomechanics, bringing together important different global schools of thought. "Modern Trends in Geomechanics" takes stock... 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...

  • Geotechnics of Soft Soils: Focus on Ground Improvementby Minna Karstunen; Martino Leoni

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 231.00

    Natural soft soils are very complex materials. As construction activities increasingly take place in poor ground conditions, ground improvement is often required. However, design practices for ground improvement were for long at best crude and conservative, and at worst unsafe. Although new construction and field observation techniques have been developed... 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...

  • Bodenmechanik und Grundbauby Hans-Jürgen Lang; Jachen Huder; Peter Amann; Alexander M. Puzrin

    Springer 2007; US$ 59.95

    Lehrbuch und Nachschlagewerk: kompakt und übersichtlich. Anhand der Beispiele mit Lösungen lassen sich Berechnungen praxisnah nachvollziehen. Dieses Buch beschreibt das Verhalten von Böden und Fels sowie grundbauliche Konzepte. Es ist "normenfrei" und kann daher in allen Ländern genutzt werden. Geeignet für Theorie und Praxis. In den Prüfungen an der... more...
