  • Fundamentals of Engineering Geologyby F. G. Bell

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 93.95

    Fundamentals of Engineering Geology discusses geomorphological processes, particularly the linkages between geology, geo-technics, rock mechanics, soil mechanics, and foundation design. The book reviews igneous rocks, metamorphic rocks, sedimentary rocks, and stratigraphy. Stratigraphy is based on three fundamental principles, namely, the "Law of Superposition,... more...

  • International Society for Rock Mechanicsby Yong Zhou

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95

    International Society for Rock Mechanics compiles the list of members of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) from several nations and dependencies (countries) around the globe. The ISRM is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and scientific investigation of Rock Mechanics, including related fields such as geology, geophysics,... more...

  • Rock Dynamics and Geophysical Explorationby L.N. Persen

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 72.95

    Rock Dynamics and Geophysical Exploration: Introduction to Stress Waves in Rocks deals with a theoretical tool for predicting stress waves in rocks. The book considers both elastic and Kelvin type materials, and also explains some experiments of stress waves in rocks. The book reviews concepts in the analysis of stresses and deformations, the fundamental... more...

  • Strain Patterns in Rocksby P. R. Cobbold; W. M. Schwerdtner

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 72.95

    Strain Patterns in Rocks is a selection of papers presented at the international workshop, held in Rennes on May 13-14, 1982. The book presents papers on the techniques of strain measurement; an orthographic analysis of deformation; and the applications of the Mohr circle to inhomogeneous deformation. The text also includes papers on the methods of... more...

  • Ground Motion and Engineering Seismologyby A.S. Cakmak

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 93.95

    Despite advances in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering, earthquakes continue to cause loss of life and property in one part of the world or another. The Third International Conference on Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA, 22nd to 24th June 1987, provided an opportunity for participants... more...

  • Strength Failure and Crack Evolution Behavior of Rock Materials Containing Pre-existing Fissuresby Sheng-Qi Yang

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 120.91

    This book has following unique features that distinguish it from other works from the same area: 1) Investigates the influence of fissure geometry on strength failure and crack evolution behaviour of real rock material; 2) Analyzes the effect of pre-experiment high-temperature treatment on fracture mechanical behaviour of rock material with a single... more...

  • Soil Mechanics Fundamentals (Metric Version)by Muni Budhu

    Wiley 2015; US$ 70.00 US$ 60.67

    An accessible, clear, concise, and contemporary course in geotechnical engineering, this key text: strikes a balance between theory and practical applications for an introductory course in soil mechanics keeps mechanics to a minimum for the students to appreciate the background, assumptions and limitations of the theories discusses implications... more...

  • Rock Engineering Riskby John A. Hudson; Xia-Ting Feng

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 129.95

    This book provides a new, necessary and valuable approach to the consideration of risk in underground engineering projects constructed within rock masses. There are Chapters on uncertainty and risk, rock engineering systems, rock fractures and rock stress, the design of a repository for radioactive waste, plus two major case examples relating to the... more...

  • Fracture Mechanics of Rockby Barry Kean Atkinson

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 93.95

    The analysis of crack problems through fracture mechanics has been applied to the study of materials such as glass, metals and ceramics because relatively simple fracture criteria describe the failure of these materials. The increased attention paid to experimental rock fracture mechanics has led to major contributions to the solving of geophysical... more...
