- Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 231.00
The second edition of this well established book has been comprehensively updated in line with recent developments. After presenting the fundamentals of stress and strain, and their graphical representation, the book includes chapters on failure states in soils and rocks, observed and elastic paths, and the use of discontinuities. New sections include... more...
- 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...
- 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...

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...
- 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...

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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 220.00
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...
