Mine Safety Science and Engineering: Health and Disaster Management

1st Edition

Debi Prasad Tripathy
September 12, 2019

In Mining Engineering operations, mines act as sources of constant danger and risk to the miners and may result in disasters unless mining is done with safety legislations and practices in place. Mine safety engineers promote and enforce mine safety and health by complying with the established...

Sprayed Concrete Lined Tunnels

2nd Edition

Alun Thomas
September 04, 2019

Sprayed concrete lined (SCL) tunnels are growing rapidly in popularity due to their versatility. The design and construction of both hard rock and soft ground tunnels has been revolutionised by the advent of the SCL method and now the use of permanent sprayed concrete linings has unlocked the true...

Historic Construction and Conservation: Materials, Systems and Damage

1st Edition

Pere Roca, Paulo B. Lourenço, Angelo Gaetani
September 02, 2019

Conservation in the built environment raises fundamental questions which have been debated for centuries - what is worth preserving, how is it possible, why is it important? This book takes a modern approach to the meaning of a heritage structure and its conservation. The historical evolution of...

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics with Probability and Statistics

1st Edition

Ryosuke Kitamura, Kazunari Sako
August 27, 2019

Soil is fundamentally a multi-phase material – consisting of solid particles, water and air. In soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering it is widely treated as an elastic, elastoplastic or visco-elastoplastic material, and consequently regarded as a continuum body. However, this book explores...

Ground Characterization and Structural Analyses for Tunnel Design

1st Edition

Benjamín Celada, Z.T. Bieniawski
August 26, 2019

This practical and design-oriented book focuses on ground characterization and structural calculation, as part of the active structural design methodology. With a focus on rock tunnelling it offers a comprehensive rather than a topic-based perspective, deriving sound tunnel design criteria and...

Subsurface Upgrading of Heavy Crude Oils and Bitumen

1st Edition

Cesar Ovalles
August 12, 2019

Heavy crude oils and bitumen represent more than 50% of all hydrocarbons available on the planet. These feedstocks have a low amount of distillable material and high level of contaminants that make their production, transportation, and refining difficult and costly by conventional technologies....

Plant-Soil Slope Interaction

1st Edition

Charles Wang Wai Ng, Anthony Leung, Junjun Ni
August 02, 2019

This inter-disciplinary book provides the latest advanced knowledge of plant effects on vegetated soil properties such as water retention capability, water permeability function, shear strength, slope hydrology, movements and failure mechanisms, and applies this knowledge to the solution of slope...

The Restoration of Ghirlandina Tower in Modena and the Assessment of Soil-Structure Interaction by Means of Dynamic Identification Techniques

1st Edition

Rosella Cadignani, Renato Lancellotta, Donato Sabia
July 19, 2019

This book is the first of a series of volumes on Built Heritage and Geotechnics, intended to reach a wide audience: professionals and academics in the fields of civil engineering, architecture, restoration and cultural heritage management, and even the wider public. The present volume provides...

Supplement to the Position Paper on Dams and the Environment

1st Edition

CIGB ICOLD
July 01, 2019

ICOLD Bulletin 159, Supplement to the Position Paper on Dams and the Environment, summarizes the role of dams in the future in the context of the global environmental changes which have become a significant issue in recent years. Global problems such as climate change have impacts on dam safety....

Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements VII: Proceedings of the 7th International Conference 'Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements' (7ICONFBMP), June 12-14, 2019, Thessaloniki, Greece

1st Edition

A.F. Nikolaides, E. Manthos
June 18, 2019

Highway engineers are facing the challenge not only to design and construct sustainable and safe pavements properly and economically. This implies a thorough understanding of materials behaviour, their appropriate use in the continuously changing environment, and implementation of constantly...

Mining goes Digital: Proceedings of the 39th International Symposium 'Application of Computers and Operations Research in the Mineral Industry' (APCOM 2019), June 4-6, 2019, Wroclaw, Poland

1st Edition

Christoph Mueller, Winfred Assibey-Bonsu, Ernest Baafi, Christoph Dauber, Chris Doran, Marek Jerzy Jaszczuk, Oleg Nagovitsyn
June 04, 2019

The conferences on ‘Applications for Computers and Operations Research in the Minerals Industry’ (APCOM) initially focused on the optimization of geostatistics and resource estimation. Several standard methods used in these fields were presented in the early days of APCOM. While geostatistics...
