Modeling and Computing for Geotechnical Engineering: An Introduction

M.S. Rahman, M.B. Can Ulker
August 15, 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...

Geologic Disposal of High-Level Radioactive Waste

Roland Pusch, Raymond N Yong, Masashi Nakano
August 14, 2018

This new book presents the best practices for the disposal of high-level radioactive waste, and compares the leading methodologies of Very Deep Hole (VDH) and Mined Repository (MR) approaches. It also assesses their respective waste isolation capacities in both the short- and long-term, and weighs...

Site Investigation using Resistivity Imaging

Sahadat Hossain, Golam Kibria, Sadik Khan
August 10, 2018

Subsurface investigation is the most important phase of any civil engineering construction or development activities. The geologic conditions can be extremely complex, variable, and subject to change with time; soil test borings and in-situ tests are employed to obtain subsoil information....

Dam Surveillance Guide

CIGB ICOLD
August 10, 2018

Dams are part of human achievements that induce great benefits for society but also bear a potential risk to people, property and the natural environment. The risk of a dam rupture is extremely low and diffi cult to quantify accurately. The aim of ‘Dam surveillance’ (ICOLD Bulletin 158), is to help...

Flood Evaluation and Dam Safety

CIGB ICOLD
August 10, 2018

Hydrology and dams are two fields that are obviously closely related. Four bulletins have so far been published by the Committee: Selection of Design Flood – Current methods, Dams and Floods – Guidelines and cases histories, Role of Dams in Flood Mitigation – A review and Integrated Flood...

Ratan Raj Tatiya
August 10, 2018

Surface and Underground Excavations – Methods, Techniques and Equipment (2nd edition) covers the latest technologies and developments in the excavation arena at any locale: surface or underground. In the first few chapters, unit operations are discussed and subsequently, excavation techniques are...

The Indian Ocean Tsunami

Tad S. Murty, U. Aswathanarayana, Niru Nirupama
July 30, 2018

The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 is considered to have been one of the worst natural disasters in history, affecting twelve countries, from Indonesia to Somalia. 175,000 people are believed to have lost their lives, almost 50,000 were registered as missing and 1.7 million people were...

Optimization of Hydraulic Fracture Stages and Sequencing in Unconventional Formations

Ahmed Alzahabi, Mohamed Y. Soliman
July 20, 2018

Shale gas and/or oil play identification is subject to many screening processes for characteristics such as porosity, permeability, and brittleness. Evaluating shale gas and/or oil reservoirs and identifying potential sweet spots (portions of the reservoir rock that have high-quality kerogen...

Handbook - Soil mix walls: Design and execution

Nicolas Denies, Noël Huybrechts
July 13, 2018

For several decades now, the deep mixing method has been used for ground improvement works. A more recent application is the use of soil mix as structural elements for the construction of earth-water retaining structures and cut-off walls. Since 2000, due to the economic and environmental...
