  • Numerical Analysis and Modelling in Geomechanicsby John W. Bull

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 262.00

    In geomechanics, existing design methods are very much dependent upon sophisticated on-site techniques to assess ground conditions. This book describes numerical analysis, computer simulation and modelling that can be used to answer some highly complex questions associated with geomechanics. The contributors, who are all international experts in 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...

  • The Premixing Methodby Coastal Development Institute Tokyo

    Taylor and Francis 2014; 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...

  • Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook, Second Editionby Roy E. Hunt

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 210.00

    The Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook provides the tools necessary for fusing geological characterization and investigation with critical analysis for obtaining engineering design criteria. The second edition updates this pioneering reference for the 21 st century, including developments that have occurred in the twenty years since... more...

  • Unsaturated Soilsby T. Schanz

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 519.00

    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...

  • Advances in X-ray Tomography for Geomaterialsby Desrues Jacques; Gioacchino Viggiani

    ISTE 2006; US$ 220.00

    Originally developed for use in healthcare, X-ray computed tomography has been increasingly used in the field of non-destructive material testing. Computed tomography (CT) is useful for studying a wide range of materials, for example, rock, bone, ceramic, metal and soft tissue. Recently, the study of geomaterials (including granulates, soils, rocks... 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...
