  • 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...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 463.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • The Stability of Slopesby Eddie Bromhead

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 367.00

    The new edition of this successful book has been thoroughly revised to take account of recent advances in our understanding of slope stability and instability. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Rock Quality, Seismic Velocity, Attenuation and Anisotropyby Nick Barton

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 241.00

    Seismic measurements take many forms, and appear to have a universal role in the Earth Sciences. They are the means for most easily and economically interpreting what lies beneath the visible surface. There are huge economic rewards and losses to be made when interpreting the shallow crust or subsurface more, or less accurately, as the case may be.... more...

  • Experimental Rock Mechanicsby Kiyoo Mogi

    Taylor and Francis 2006; 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...

  • 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...
