  • Harmonising Rock Engineering and the Environmentby Qihu Qian; Yingxin Zhou

    CRC Press 2011; US$ 624.00

    Harmonising Rock Mechanics and the Environment comprises the proceedings (invited and contributed papers) of the 12th ISRM International Congress on Rock Mechanics (Beijing, China, 18-21 October 2011). The contributions cover the entire scope of rock mechanics and rock engineering, with an emphasis on the critical role of both disciplines in sustainable... more...

  • Innovative Numerical Modelling in Geomechanicsby Luis Ribeiro e Sousa; Eurípedes Vargas Jr.; M.M. Fernandes; Roberto Azevedo

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 219.00

    Since the 1990s five books on ?Applications of Computational Mechanics in Geotechnical Engineering? have been published. Innovative Numerical Modelling in Geomechanics is the 6th and final book in this series, and contains papers written by leading experts on computational mechanics. The book treats highly relevant topics in the field of geotechnics,... more...

  • Advances in Transportation Geotechnicsby Ed Ellis; Hai-Sui Yu; Glenn McDowell; Andrew R. Dawson; Nick Thom

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 385.00

    Highways provide the arteries of modern society. The interaction of road, rail and other transport infrastructure with the ground is unusually intimate, and thus needs to be well-understood to provide economic and reliable infrastructure for society. Challenges include not only the design of new infrastructure (often on problematic ground), but increasingly... more...

  • Geotechnics of Soft Soils: Focus on Ground Improvementby Minna Karstunen; Martino Leoni

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 243.00

    Natural soft soils are very complex materials. As construction activities increasingly take place in poor ground conditions, ground improvement is often required. However, design practices for ground improvement were for long at best crude and conservative, and at worst unsafe. Although new construction and field observation techniques have been developed... more...

  • Constitutive Modeling of Geomaterialsby Teruo Nakai

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 155.95

    Written by a veteran geotechnical engineer with a long record of research discoveries, Constitutive Modeling of Geomaterials: Principles and Applications presents a simple and unified approach to modeling various features of geomaterials in general stress systems. The book discusses the fundamentals of the constitutive modeling of soils and illustrates... more...

  • Boundaries of Rock Mechanicsby Meifeng Cai; Jin'an Wang

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 375.00

    Boundaries of Rock Mechanics. Recent Advances and Challenges for the 21st Century contains 180 papers from the International Young Scholars? Symposium on Rock Mechanics 2008 (Beijing, China, 28 April-2 May 2008).

  • Soil Mechanics Fundamentals (Imperial Version)by Muni Budhu

    Wiley 2015; US$ 80.00

    This accessible, clear and concise textbook strikes a balance between theory and practical applications for an introductory course in soil mechanics for undergraduates in civil engineering, construction, mining and geological engineering.   Soil Mechanics Fundamentals lays a solid foundation on key principles of soil mechanics for application in... more...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
