  • 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...

  • H2Karst Research in Limestone Hydrogeologyby Jacques Mudry; Francois Zwahlen; Catherine Bertrand; James W. LaMoreaux

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Chapters in this book are contributions from the 9th Conference on limestone hydrogeology, organized in Besancon in September 2011 selected?by the scientific committee of H2Karst.The book presents latest results on in the field of?groundwater flow and storage within the different subsystems of karst aquifers; insights into the complex interaction between... more...

  • Geotechnical Engineeringby V.N.S. Murthy

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 154.95

    A must have reference for any engineer involved with foundations, piers, and retaining walls, this remarkably comprehensive volume illustrates soil characteristic concepts with examples that detail a wealth of practical considerations, It covers the latest developments in the design of drilled pier foundations and mechanically stabilized earth retaining... more...

  • Mohr Circles, Stress Paths and Geotechnicsby Richard H.G. Parry

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 231.00

    The second edition of this well established book has been comprehensively updated in line with recent developments. After presenting the fundamentals of stress and strain, and their graphical representation, the book includes chapters on failure states in soils and rocks, observed and elastic paths, and the use of discontinuities. New sections include... more...

  • The Mechanics of Soils and Foundations, Second Editionby John Atkinson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 164.95

    Ideal for undergraduates of geotechnical engineering for civil engineers, this established textbook sets out the basic theories of soil mechanics in a clear and straightforward way; combining both classical and critical state theories and giving students a good grounding in the subject which will last right through into a career as a geotechnical... more...

  • Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineeringby Charles W. W. Ng; Bruce Menzies

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 220.00

    Analytical and comprehensive, this state-of-the-art book, examines the mechanics and engineering of unsaturated soils, as well as explaining the laboratory and field testing and research that are the logical basis of this modern approach to safe construction in these hazardous geomaterials; putting them into a logical framework for civil engineering... 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...

  • 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...

  • Soil-Structure Interactionby A.S. Cakmak

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    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...
