  • An Introduction to Geotechnical Processesby John Woodward

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 132.95

    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...

  • Geotechnical Modellingby David Muir Wood

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 243.00

    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...

  • Geotechnical Centrifuge Technologyby R.N. Taylor

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 419.00

    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...

  • Numerical Analysis and Modelling in Geomechanicsby John W. Bull

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 275.00

    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...

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

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 648.00

    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

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 209.95

    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

    CRC Press 2003; 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 process.... more...

  • Geology and Settlementby Dora P. Crouch

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 124.99 US$ 107.49

    This study explains the Greco-Roman urban form as it relates to the geological basis at selected sites in the Mediterranean basin. Each of the sites--Argos, Delphi, Ephesus, and Syracuse among them--has manifested in its physical form the geology on which it stood and from which it was made."By demonstrating the dependence of a group of cities on its... more...

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

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 486.00

    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...
