  • 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...

  • Bodemdaling langs de Nederlandse kustby F.B.J. Barends; D. Dillingh; R. Hanssen

    IOS Press 2008; US$ 83.00

    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...

  • Rock Slope Stabilityby Charles A. Kliche

    SME 1999; US$ 89.00

    Whether you?re involved in surface mine design, surface mine production, construction, education, or regulation, this is an important book for your library. It describes the basic rock slope failure modes and methods of analysis??both kinematic and kinetic techniques. Chapters include geotechnical and geomechanical analysis techniques, hydrology, rock... more...

  • Geotechnical Aspects of Underground Construction in Soft Groundby Charles W.W. Ng; H.W. Huang; G.B. Liu

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 283.00

    This volume comprises a collection of four special lectures, six general reports and 112 papers presented at the Sixth International Symposium of Geotechnical Aspects of Underground Construction in Soft Ground (IS-Shanghai) held between 10 and 12 April 2008 in Shanghai, China. The Symposium was organised by Tongji University and the following... more...

  • Geotechnikby ; Gerd ller

    Wiley 2008; US$ 49.95

    Das Buch vermittelt alle wichtigen Aspekte über den Aufbau und die Eigenschaften des Bodens, die bei der Planung und Berechnung sowie bei der Begutachtung von Schäden des Systems Bauwerk-Baugrund zu berücksichtigen sind. Schwerpunkte sind die Baugrunderkundung, die Ermittlung von Bodenkennwerten im Labor, sowie die Behandlung von Setzungs-... more...

  • Physical Soil Mechanicsby Gerd Gudehus

    Springer 2011; US$ 289.00

    Soil is matter in its own right. Its nature can be captured by means of monotonous, cyclic and strange attractors. Thus material properties are defined by the asymptotic response of sand- and clay-like samples to imposed deformations and stresses. This serves to validate and calibrate elastoplastic and hypoplastic relations with comparative plots.... more...

  • Practical Soil Dynamicsby Milutin Srbulov

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    The objective of this book is to fill some of the gaps in the existing engineering codes and standards related to soil dynamics, concerning issues in earthquake engineering and ground vibrations, by using formulas and hand calculators. The usefulness and accuracy of the simple analyses are demonstrated by their implementation to the case histories... more...

  • Geotechnical Engineering: New Horizonsby F.B.J. Barends; J. Breedeveld; R.B.J. Brinkgreve

    IOS Press 2011; US$ 174.00

    This book presents the proceedings of the 21st European Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference, held in the Netherlands in September 2011. Six sections cover the topics of: underground construction; pile foundation and ground improvement; soil dynamics; dams, erosion and piping; deformation and soil properties and geothermics. The papers included... more...
