Geosynthetic Encased Columns for Soft Soil Improvement

1st Edition

Márcio Almeida, Mario Riccio, Iman Hosseinpour, Dimiter Alexiew
October 30, 2018

The geosynthetic encased column (GEC) is a relatively recent method developed for soft soil improvement. The method was firstly introduced as a concept in the 1980s and first practical applications started in the 1990s. GECs have been widely used in some parts of the world for the last three...

ICOLD Dam Decommissioning - Guidelines

1st Edition

CIGB ICOLD
October 17, 2018

Dam decommissioning or dam removal has been increasingly common since the past decade. The reason for considering dam removal may have to do with the safety of dams, high repair costs, high operating and maintenance costs, or effects on fish passage and water quality. However, the decision to...

Advanced Rail Geotechnology - Ballasted Track

1st Edition

Buddhima Indraratna, Wadud Salim, Cholachat Rujikiatkamjorn
September 18, 2018

Ballast plays a vital role in transmitting and distributing train wheel loads to the underlying sub-ballast and subgrade. Bearing capacity of track, train speed, riding quality and passenger comfort all depend on the stability of ballast through mechanical interlocking of particles. Ballast...

Modeling and Computing for Geotechnical Engineering: An Introduction

1st Edition

M.S. Rahman, M.B. Can Ulker
September 11, 2018

Modeling and computing is becoming an essential part of the analysis and design of an engineered system. This is also true "geotechnical systems", such as soil-foundations, earth dams and other soil structure systems. The general goal of ‘modeling and computing’ is to predict and understand the...

Rotary Drilling and Blasting in Large Surface Mines

1st Edition

Bhalchandra V. Gokhale
September 04, 2018

In large surface mining operations, drilling and blasting activities constitute more than 15% of the total costs. In order to optimize performance and minimize costs, a thorough knowledge of drill and blast operations is, therefore, extremely important. In this unique reference volume, rotary...
