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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Bodemdaling langs de Nederlandse kust geeft laatste stand van zaken weer wat betreft de lokale bovenmatige bodembeweging. De bijdragen van de auteurs in het kader van de quick scan in 2005 zijn over het algemeen beknopter dan die van latere analyses die in dit boek zijn gepubliceerd. Dit werk eindigt met conclusies en aanbevelingen, zoals die tijdens... more...
