Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • Eurock 2006: Multiphysics Coupling and Long Term Behaviour in Rock Mechanicsby Alain van Cotthem; Robert Charlier; Jean-Francois Thimus; Jean-Pierre Tshibangu

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 397.00

    Special emphasis is given to the constitutive behaviour of rock material, including rock mechanics and partial saturation, chemo-mechanics, thermo-hydro-mechanics, weathering and creep. Theoretical concepts, laboratory and field experiments and numerical simulations are discussed. Multiphysics coupling and long-term behaviour has practical applications... more...

  • Geotechnical Engineeringby Jean-Louis Briaud

    Wiley 2013; US$ 175.00

    Written by a leader on the subject, Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering is first introductory geotechnical engineering textbook to cover both saturated and unsaturated soil mechanics. Destined to become the next leading text in the field, this book presents a new approach to teaching the subject, based on fundamentals of unsaturated soils, and... more...

  • Flows and Chemical Reactions in Homogeneous Mixturesby Roger Prud'homme

    Wiley 2013; US$ 129.00

    Flows with chemical reactions can occur in various fields such as combustion, process engineering, aeronautics, the atmospheric environment and aquatics. The examples of application chosen in this book mainly concern homogeneous reactive mixtures that can occur in propellers within the fields of process engineering and combustion: – propagation... more...

  • Soil-Foundation-Structure Interactionby Rolando P. Orense; Nawawi Chouw; Michael J. Pender

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 188.95

    Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction contains selected papers presented at the International Workshop on Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction held in Auckland, New Zealand from 26-27 November 2009. The workshop was the venue for an international exchange of ideas, disseminating information about experiments, numerical models and practical engineering... more...

  • Craig's Soil Mechanics, Eighth Editionby Jonathan Knappett; R.F. Craig

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 65.95

    Now in its eighth edition, this bestselling text continues to blend clarity of explanation with depth of coverage to present students with the fundamental principles of soil mechanics. From the foundations of the subject through to its application in practice, Craig?s Soil Mechanics provides an indispensable companion to undergraduate courses and... more...

  • Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineeringby Helmut F. Schweiger

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 397.00

    An overview of recent developments in constitutive modelling, numerical implementation issues, and coupled and dynamic analysis.  There is a special section dedicated to the numerical modelling of ground improvement techniques, with applications of numerical methods for solving practical boundary value problems, such as deep excavations, tunnels,... more...

  • Physical Modelling in Geotechnics, Two Volume Setby C.W.W. Ng; Y.H. Wang; L.M. Zhang

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 602.00

    An excellent source of reference on the current practice of physical modelling in geotechnics and environmental engineering. Volume One concentrates on physical modelling facilities and experimental techniques, soil characterisation, slopes, dams, liquefaction, ground improvement and reinforcement, offshore foundations and anchors, and pipelines.... more...

  • Rock Mechanicsby Nagaratnam Sivakugan; Sanjay Kumar Shukla; Braja M. Das

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 69.95

    Rock mechanics is a multidisciplinary subject combining geology, geophysics, and engineering and applying the principles of mechanics to study the engineering behavior of the rock mass. With wide application, a solid grasp of this topic is invaluable to anyone studying or working in civil, mining, petroleum, and geological engineering. Rock Mechanics:... more...
