Heavy Metal Contamination of Water and Soil: Analysis, Assessment, and Remediation Strategies

Heavy Metal Contamination of Water and Soil: Analysis, Assessment, and Remediation Strategies

Elham Asrari

February 06, 2014

Although adverse health effects of heavy metals have been known for a long time, exposure to heavy metals continues and is even increasing in some areas. Remediating heavy metal contaminated soils and water is necessary to reduce the associated health and ecological risks, make the land resource...

Small Dams: Planning, Construction and Maintenance

Small Dams: Planning, Construction and Maintenance

Barry Lewis

November 29, 2013

Small Dams: Planning, Construction and Maintenance has been written to provide a practical approach and guide to determining catchment yield and the amount of water required in a dam, advising on selecting and working with engineers and contractors, as well as outlining the cause of dam failures...

Design and Performance of Embankments on Very Soft Soils

Design and Performance of Embankments on Very Soft Soils

Márcio de Souza S. Almeida, Maria Esther Soares Marques

September 03, 2013

Embankment construction projects on very soft soil often give rise to serious problems. This volume on geotechnics and soft soil engineering therefore treats all phases of the design and construction process exhaustively, from the first investigation step to the monitoring of constructed work. The...

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Geotechnical Practice

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Geotechnical Practice

Geoffrey E Blight

July 11, 2013

There are other books on unsaturated soil mechanics, but this book is different. Unsaturated soil mechanics is only one aspect of a continuous range of soil mechanics studies that extends from the rheology of high water content soil slurries to the mechanics of soft soils, to stiff saturated soils,...

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...

Handbook of Tropical Residual Soils Engineering

Handbook of Tropical Residual Soils Engineering

Bujang B.K. Huat, David G. Toll, Arun Prasad

May 24, 2012

Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material. They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity...

Mechanics of Residual Soils, Second Edition

Mechanics of Residual Soils, Second Edition

Geoffrey E. Blight, Eng Choon Leong

May 03, 2012

Residual soils are found in many parts of the world and are used extensively as construction materials for roads, embankments and dams, and to support the foundations of buildings, bridges and load-bearing pavements. The characteristics and engineering properties of residual soils can differ...
