  • Drilled Shafts in Rockby Lianyang Zhang

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 231.00

    Drilled shafts in rock are widely used as foundations of heavy structures such as highway bridges and tall buildings. Although much has been learned about the analysis and design of drilled shafts in rock, all the major findings are published in the form of reports and articles in technical journals and conference proceedings. This book is the first... more...

  • Dämmen und Sanieren in Alt- und Neubautenby Ulrich E. Stempel

    Franzis Verlag 2013; US$ 18.67

    Es gibt viele Angebote, die versprechen, einen Teil der immer weiter steigenden Heizkosten einzusparen - aber was davon gibt Sinn und hat Zukunft? Wie lassen sich im konkreten Fall Immobilien energetisch sanieren? Die Experten streiten sich heftig über Dämmarten und Sinn von Dämmungen. Den richtigen Weg finden mit Dämmen und Sanieren in Alt- und Neubauten... more...

  • Geotechnical Modellingby David Muir Wood

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 231.00

    Modelling forms an implicit part of all engineering design but many engineers engage in modelling without consciously considering the nature, validity and consequences of the supporting assumptions. Derived from courses given to postgraduate and final year undergraduate MEng students, this book presents some of the models that form a part of the... more...

  • 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...

  • 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 Engineeringby Duncan C. Wyllie; Chris Mah

    Taylor and Francis 2014; 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...
