  • 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...
