  • 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...

  • Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formationsby Roy E. Hunt

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 119.95

    Properly understanding and characterizing geologic materials and formations is vital for making critical engineering decisions. Identifying and classifying rock masses and soil formations allows reasonable estimation of their characteristic properties. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered Geotechnical Engineering Investigation... more...

  • Experimental Rock Mechanicsby Kiyoo Mogi

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 184.95

    Fracture and flow of rocks under stress and their geophysical and seismological implications raise fundamental questions in rock mechanics, particularly in the areas of tectonophysics and seismology. This text exclusively addresses the deformation and fracture of rock specimens under general triaxial compression, in which all three principal stresses... more...

  • A Geology for Engineers, Seventh Editionby F.G.H. Blyth; Michael de Freitas

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 66.95

    No engineering structure can be built on the ground or within it without the influence of geology being experienced by the engineer. Yet geology is an ancillary subject to students of engineering and it is therefore essential that their training is supported by a concise, reliable and usable text on geology and its relationship to engineering. In... more...

  • Geotechnical Investigation Methodsby Roy E. Hunt

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 119.95

    The investigation phase is the most important segment of any geotechnical study. Using the correct methods and properly interpreting the results are critical to a successful investigation. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook, Geotechnical Investigation Methods offers clear, concise,... more...

  • Dynamic Soil-Structure Interactionby C. Zhang; John P Wolf

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 260.00

    Dynamic Soil-structure interaction is one of the major topics in earthquake engineering and soil dynamics since it is closely related to the safety evaluation of many important engineering projects, such as nuclear power plants, to resist earthquakes. In dealing with the analysis of dynamic soil-structure interactions, one of the most difficult tasks... more...

  • Unsaturated Soilsby T. Schanz

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 339.00

    Understanding the behaviour of unsaturated soils is becoming exclusively essential for geotechnical engineers and designers. This book includes the Proceedings of the International Conference ISSMGE uniting researchers and practitioners in geotechnical engineering on a single platform and discussing the problems associated with unsaturated soils. The... more...

  • Rock Mass Classificationby B. Singh; R K Goel

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 205.00

    Rock Mass Classifications - A Practical Approach in Civil Engineering was written in response to the many unanswered questions regarding this subject. Questions such as - Is Classification reasonably reliable? Can it be successful in crisis management of geohazards? Can a single Classification system be general for all rock structures? Is Classification... more...

  • Soil Engineeringby Fu Hua Chen

    Taylor and Francis 1999; US$ 164.95

    In the last forty years, at least fifty books have been written on the subject of soil mechanics, most of them textbooks. Only a few touch on practical applications. Soil Engineering: Testing, Design, and Remediation supplies the information needed to fill the gap between textbook learning and practical know-how. When engineers deal with major projects,... more...

  • Bifurcations, Instabilities, Degradation in Geomechanicsby George Exadaktylos; Ionannis G. Vardoulakis

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 219.00

    Covers modeling of bifurcation, structural failure of geomaterials and geostructures, advanced analytical, numerical and experimental techniques, and application and development of generalised continuum models and more. more...
