  • Soil Mechanicsby Roberto Nova

    Wiley 2012; US$ 231.00

    Knowledge of the behavior of soil mechanics is essential for forecasting the internal displacements and actions of any construction. This book, although theoretical at first glance, also offers a more practical scope, giving readers adequate tools to plan geotechnical projects correctly. more...

  • Introduction to Soil Mechanicsby Bodó; ; la; Colin Jones

    Wiley 2013; US$ 53.95

    Introduction to Soil Mechanics, Béla Bodó & Colin Jones Introduction to Soil Mechanics covers the basic principles of soil mechanics, illustrating why the properties of soil are important, the techniques used to understand and characterise soil behaviour and how that knowledge is then applied in construction.   The... more...

  • Prediction and Simulation Methods for Geohazard Mitigationby Fusao Oka; Akira Murakami; Sayuri Kimoto

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 385.00

    The last decades have shown a remarkable increase in the number of heavy rains, typhoons and earthquakes. These natural phenomena are the main causes for geohazards. As a result the mitigation of geohazards has become a major research topic in geotechnical engineering, and in recent years simulation-based predictions and monitoring tools have been... more...

  • Soil Mechanicsby William Powrie

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 67.95

    Instead of fixating on formulae, Soil Mechanics: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition focuses on the fundamentals. This book describes the mechanical behaviour of soils as it relates to the practice of geotechnical engineering. It covers both principles and design, avoids complex mathematics whenever possible, and uses simple methods and ideas... more...

  • Response of Piled Buildings to the Construction of Deep Excavationsby M. Korff

    IOS Press 2013; US$ 116.00

    Deep excavations in densely populated urban areas around the world pose specific challenges due to the increasingly complex conditions in which they are undertaken. The construction of underground car parks, cellar storage areas and major infrastructure in deep excavations helps to preserve the quality of space above ground. Despite the considerable... more...
