  • Numerical Analysis and Modelling in Geomechanicsby John W. Bull

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 262.00

    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...

  • Rock Slope Engineeringby Duncan C. Wyllie; Chris Mah

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 283.00

    The stability of rock slopes is an important issue in both civil and mining engineering.  On civil projects, rock cuts must be safe from rock falls and large-scale slope instability during both construction and operation. In open pit mining, where slope heights can be many hundreds of meters, the economics of the operation are closely related to the... more...

  • Geotechnical Centrifuge Technologyby R.N. Taylor

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 399.00

    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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
