Installation Effects in Geotechnical Engineering

Installation Effects in Geotechnical Engineering

Michael A. Hicks, Jelke Dijkstra, Marti Lloret-Cabot, Minna Karstunen

March 05, 2013

Installation effects in geotechnical engineering contains the proceedings of the International Conference on Installation Effects in Geotechnical Engineering (Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 24-27 March 2013), the closing conference of GEO-INSTALL (FP7/2007-2013, PIAG-GA-2009-230638), an...

The Deep Mixing Method

The Deep Mixing Method

Masaki Kitazume, Masaaki Terashi

February 21, 2013

The Deep Mixing Method (DMM), a deep in-situ soil stabilization technique using cement and/or lime as a stabilizing agent, was developed in Japan and in the Nordic countries independently in the 1970s. Numerous research efforts have been made in these areas investigating properties of treated soil,...

Rapid Load Testing on Piles: Interpretation Guidelines

Rapid Load Testing on Piles: Interpretation Guidelines

Paul Holscher, Henk Brassinga, Michael Brown, Peter Middendorp, Maarten Profittlich, Frits A. van Tol

October 14, 2011

A Rapid Load Test (RLT), developed to determine the initial stiffness and bearing capacity, is an economical and practical alternative to a Static Load Test (SLT). The broad application of RLT, however, was hampered by uncertainty about the interpretation of the test results. This book offers clear...

Single Piles and Pile Groups Under Lateral Loading, 2nd Edition

Single Piles and Pile Groups Under Lateral Loading, 2nd Edition

Lymon C. Reese, William F. Van Impe

January 05, 2011

The complexities of designing piles for lateral loads are manifold as there are many forces that are critical to the design of big structures such as bridges, offshore and waterfront structures and retaining walls. The loads on structures should be supported either horizontally or laterally or in...

Foundations for Industrial Machines: Handbook for Practising Engineers

Foundations for Industrial Machines: Handbook for Practising Engineers

K.G. Bhatia

October 12, 2009

The performance, safety and stability of machines depends largely on their design, manufacturing and interaction with environment. Machine foundations should be designed in such a way that the dynamic forces transmitted to the soil through the foundation, eliminating all potentially harmful forces....

Dynamics of Structure and Foundation - A Unified Approach: 1. Fundamentals

Dynamics of Structure and Foundation - A Unified Approach: 1. Fundamentals

Indrajit Chowdhury, Shambhu P. Dasgupta

December 17, 2008

Designed to provide engineers with quick access to current and practical information on the dynamics of structure and foundation, this unique work, consisting of two separately available volumes, serves as a complete reference, especially for those involved with earthquake or dynamic analysis, or...

Dynamics of Structure and Foundation - A Unified Approach: 2. Applications

Dynamics of Structure and Foundation - A Unified Approach: 2. Applications

Indrajit Chowdhury, Shambhu P. Dasgupta

December 17, 2008

Designed to provide engineers with quick access to current and practical information on the dynamics of structure and foundation, this 2-volume reference work is intended for engineers involved with earthquake or dynamic analysis, or the design of machine foundations in the oil, gas, and...

Rapid Load Testing on Piles

Rapid Load Testing on Piles

Paul Holscher, Frits A. van Tol

August 28, 2008

To obtain data about the stiffness and bearing capacity of a foundation pile, the Rapid Load Test could be an effective and economic alternative for a static load test. In order to judge this, the influence of rate effects in clay and pore water pressures in sand should first be understood. This...

Deep Foundations on Bored and Auger Piles - BAP V: 5th International Symposium on Deep Foundations on Bored and Auger Piles (BAP V), 8-10 September 2008, Ghent, Belgium, Book + CD-ROM

Deep Foundations on Bored and Auger Piles - BAP V: 5th International Symposium on Deep Foundations on Bored and Auger Piles (BAP V), 8-10 September 2008, Ghent, Belgium, Book + CD-ROM

William F. Van Impe, Peter van Impe

August 20, 2008

Although progressing very well over the last years, the design criteria for bored and auger piles are still not fully under control and in acceptable synergism with the real pile foundation behaviour. Although there has been a lot of research in the past years  worldwide on deep...

Advances in Deep Foundations: International Workshop on Recent Advances of Deep Foundations (IWDPF07) 1–2 February 2007, Port and Airport Research Institute, Yokosuka, Japan

Yoshiaki Kikuchi, Jun Otani, Makoto Kimura, Yoshiyuki Morikawa

June 21, 2007

Civil Engineering has recently seen enormous progress in the core field of the construction of deep foundations. This book is the result of the International Workshop on Recent Advances in Deep Foundations (IWDPF07), which was held in Yokosuka, Japan from the 1st to the 2nd of February, 2007....

Underwater Embankments on Soft Soil: A Case History

Underwater Embankments on Soft Soil: A Case History

William F. Van Impe, R. Daniel Verastegui Flores

May 10, 2007

Ground improvement is an established technique in foundation engineering. In recent decades, modern methods of ground improvement have utilised explosives, impact energy, thermal treatment of the soil, vacuum consolidation, vibratory compaction technologies, stabilization and solidification of soft...

Deep Excavation: Theory and Practice

Deep Excavation: Theory and Practice

Chang-Yu Ou

September 21, 2006

Accelerating economic development and urbanization has led to engineers becoming increasingly ambitious, carrying out excavations in more difficult soils, so that excavations are deeper and more extensive. These complex conditions require advanced analysis, design methods and construction...
