Engineering geology. Rock mechanics. Soil mechanics. Underground construction

Most popular at the top

  • Geotechnical Centrifuge Technologyby R.N. Taylor

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 399.00

    This book provides a thorough review of this powerful and sophisticated technique for modelling soil structure interactions. It has been written by an international team of authors. more...

  • Rock Slope Engineering, Fourth Editionby Duncan C. Wyllie; Chris Mah

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 283.00

    The stability of rock slopes is an important issue in both civil and mining engineering.  On civil projects, rock cuts must be safe from rock falls and large-scale slope instability during both construction and operation. In open pit mining, where slope heights can be many hundreds of meters, the economics of the operation are closely related to the... more...

  • An Introduction to Geotechnical Processesby John Woodward

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 125.95

    The study of the solid part of the earth on which structures are built is an essential part of the training of a civil engineer. Geotechnical processes such as drilling, pumping and injection techniques enhance the viability of many construction processes by improving ground conditions. Highlighting the ground investigation necessary for the process,... more...

  • Bifurcation Analysis in Geomechanicsby J. Sulem; I.G. Vardoulakis

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 617.00

    This book examines the experimental and theoretical aspects of bifurcation analysis as applied to geomechanics. Coverage includes basic continuum mechanics for dry and fluid unfiltrated porous media, bifurcation and stability analyses applied to layered geological media and granular materials, and theories for generalized continua as applied to materials... more...

  • Tropical Residual Soils Engineeringby B.B.K. Huat; See Sew Gue; Faisal Haji Ali

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 199.95

    Focused on tropical areas and their unique problems and issues, this work examines all aspects of residual soils engineering, including both theoretical and practical aspects. This book gives the practitioner a thorough understanding of the characteristics of these soil types, their formation and their material properties, while guidelines on application,... more...

  • The Emergence of Unsaturated Soil Mechanics: Fredlund Volumeby A. W. Cliffton; G. W. Wilson; S. L. Barbour

    NRC Research Press 1999; US$ 89.95

    This publication is an assemblage of selected papers that have been authored or co-authored by D.G. Fredlund. The substance of these papers documents the milestones of both the science of unsaturated soil mechanincs and the career of the author during his tenure as a faculty member in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan,... more...

  • Advanced Geotechnical Analysesby P.K. Banerjee; R. Butterfield

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 463.00

    The chapters in this book show that a careful blend of engineering judgement and advanced principles of engineering mechanics may be used to resolve many complex geotechnical engineering problems. It is hoped that these may inspire the geotechnical engineering practice to make more extensive use of them in future. more...

  • The Premixing Methodby Coastal Development Institute Tokyo

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 115.95

    The premixing method involves adding a small amount of cement to the soil used in reclamation. The cement reacts with the water in the soil to produce a stronger, non-liquifying material for construction. The premixing method can therefore reduce construction time, as the counter-measure work is carried out simultaneously with the reclamation... more...

  • Unsaturated Soilsby T. Schanz

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 449.00

    Understanding the behaviour of unsaturated soils is becoming exclusively essential for geotechnical engineers and designers. This book includes the Proceedings of the International Conference "From Experimental Evidence Towards Numerical Modeling of Unsaturated Soils" uniting researchers and practitioners in geotechnical engineering on a single platform... more...

  • Engineering Geologyby F G Bell

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 62.95

    Every engineering structure, whether it's a building, bridge or road, is affected by the ground on which it is built. Geology is of fundamental importance when deciding on the location and design of all engineering works, and it is essential that engineers have a basic knowledge of the subject. Engineering Geology introduces the fundamentals of the... more...
