Introduction to Tunnel Construction

David N. Chapman, Nicole Metje, Alfred Stark
December 18, 2017

Tunnelling provides a robust solution to a variety of engineering challenges. It is a complex process, which requires a firm understanding of the ground conditions as well as the importance of ground-structure interaction. This book covers the full range of areas related to tunnel construction...

Particulate Discrete Element Modelling: A Geomechanics Perspective

Particulate Discrete Element Modelling: A Geomechanics Perspective

Catherine O'Sullivan
April 16, 2017

Particulate discrete element analysis is becoming increasingly popular for research in geomechanics as well as geology, chemical engineering, powder technology, petroleum engineering and in studying the physics of granular materials. With increased computing power, practising engineers are also...

Drystone Retaining Walls: Design, Construction and Assessment

Drystone Retaining Walls: Design, Construction and Assessment

Paul F. McCombie, Jean-Claude Morel, Denis Garnier
September 25, 2015

Take a Detailed Look at the Practice of Drystone Retaining Wall Construction Drystone retaining walls make very efficient use of local materials, and sit comfortably in their environment. They make an important contribution to heritage and to the character of the landscape, and are loved by many...

Soil Liquefaction: A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

Soil Liquefaction: A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

Mike Jefferies, Ken Been
September 21, 2015

A Rigorous and Definitive Guide to Soil Liquefaction Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness for a time—usually a few minutes or less—and which may then cause structural failure, financial loss, and even death. It can occur during earthquakes, from static loading...

Practical Rock Mechanics

Practical Rock Mechanics

Steve Hencher
September 18, 2015

An Ideal Source for Geologists and Others with Little Background in Engineering or Mechanics Practical Rock Mechanics provides an introduction for graduate students as well as a reference guide for practicing engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers. The book considers fundamental...

Practical Engineering Geology

Practical Engineering Geology

Steve Hencher
January 13, 2012

Steve Hencher presents a broad and fresh view on the importance of engineering geology to civil engineering projects. Practical Engineering Geology provides an introduction to the way that projects are managed, designed and constructed and the ways that the engineering geologist can contribute to...

Sprayed Concrete Lined Tunnels

Sprayed Concrete Lined Tunnels

Alun Thomas
October 08, 2008

Practising engineers on site, in the design office or in client organizations will find this book an excellent introduction to the design and construction of sprayed concrete lined (SCL) tunnels. The complex behaviour of the early age behaviour of the sprayed concrete requires careful management....

Geotechnical Modelling

Geotechnical Modelling

David Muir Wood
July 22, 2004

Modelling forms an implicit part of all engineering design but many engineers engage in modelling without consciously considering the nature, validity and consequences of the supporting assumptions. Derived from courses given to postgraduate and final year undergraduate MEng students, this book...
