This book provides a comprehensive guide to the design of foundations for tall buildings. After a general review of the characteristics of tall buildings, various foundation options are discussed followed by the general principles of foundation design as applied to tall buildings. Considerable...

Sustainable Slope Stabilisation using Recycled Plastic Pins

1st Edition

Sahadat Hossain, Sadik Khan, Golam Kibria
June 09, 2017

Landslides and slope failure are common in the US and rest of the world. The landslides cause significant damage to infrastructure and millions of dollars are required each year to fix the slope. A sustainable and costeffective option to stabilise the slope can have significant benefits, as it will...

The Deep Mixing Method

1st Edition

Masaki Kitazume, Masaaki Terashi
March 31, 2017

The Deep Mixing Method (DMM), a deep in-situ soil stabilization technique using cement and/or lime as a stabilizing agent, was developed in Japan and in the Nordic countries independently in the 1970s. Numerous research efforts have been made in these areas investigating properties of treated soil,...

1st Edition

Sanjay Kumar Shukla
June 07, 2016

The development of the use of polymeric materials in the form of geosynthetics has brought about major changes in the civil engineering industry. Geosynthetics are available in a wide range of compositions appropriate to different applications and environments. Over the past three to four decades,...

Urban Quay Walls

1st Edition

A. Roubos, D. Grotegoed
February 01, 2016

Since the thirteenth century, quay walls of significant retaining height have been built in the Netherlands in urban environments. Over time, structural revisions were often carried out due to excessive deformations or the use of increasingly larger and deeper vessels. These historic quay walls...

Single Piles and Pile Groups Under Lateral Loading

2nd Edition

Lymon C. Reese, William F. Van Impe
January 05, 2011

The complexities of designing piles for lateral loads are manifold as there are many forces that are critical to the design of big structures such as bridges, offshore and waterfront structures and retaining walls. The loads on structures should be supported either horizontally or laterally or in...

Foundations for Industrial Machines: Handbook for Practising Engineers

1st Edition

K.G. Bhatia
October 12, 2009

The performance, safety and stability of machines depends largely on their design, manufacturing and interaction with environment. Machine foundations should be designed in such a way that the dynamic forces transmitted to the soil through the foundation, eliminating all potentially harmful forces....
