Dynamics of Structure and Foundation - A Unified Approach: 1. Fundamentals

1st Edition

Indrajit Chowdhury, Shambhu P. Dasgupta
December 17, 2008

Designed to provide engineers with quick access to current and practical information on the dynamics of structure and foundation, this unique work, consisting of two separately available volumes, serves as a complete reference, especially for those involved with earthquake or dynamic analysis, or...

Dynamics of Structure and Foundation - A Unified Approach: 2. Applications

1st Edition

Indrajit Chowdhury, Shambhu P. Dasgupta
December 17, 2008

Designed to provide engineers with quick access to current and practical information on the dynamics of structure and foundation, this 2-volume reference work is intended for engineers involved with earthquake or dynamic analysis, or the design of machine foundations in the oil, gas, and...

Deep Foundations on Bored and Auger Piles - BAP V: 5th International Symposium on Deep Foundations on Bored and Auger Piles (BAP V), 8-10 September 2008, Ghent, Belgium, Book + CD-ROM

1st Edition

William F. Van Impe, Peter van Impe
August 20, 2008

Although progressing very well over the last years, the design criteria for bored and auger piles are still not fully under control and in acceptable synergism with the real pile foundation behaviour. Although there has been a lot of research in the past years  worldwide on deep...

Advances in Deep Foundations: International Workshop on Recent Advances of Deep Foundations (IWDPF07) 1–2 February 2007, Port and Airport Research Institute, Yokosuka, Japan

1st Edition

Yoshiaki Kikuchi, Jun Otani, Makoto Kimura, Yoshiyuki Morikawa
June 21, 2007

Civil Engineering has recently seen enormous progress in the core field of the construction of deep foundations. This book is the result of the International Workshop on Recent Advances in Deep Foundations (IWDPF07), which was held in Yokosuka, Japan from the 1st to the 2nd of February, 2007....

Underwater Embankments on Soft Soil: A Case History

1st Edition

William F. Van Impe, R. Daniel Verastegui Flores
May 10, 2007

Ground improvement is an established technique in foundation engineering. In recent decades, modern methods of ground improvement have utilised explosives, impact energy, thermal treatment of the soil, vacuum consolidation, vibratory compaction technologies, stabilization and solidification of soft...

Deep Excavation: Theory and Practice

1st Edition

Chang-Yu Ou
September 21, 2006

Accelerating economic development and urbanization has led to engineers becoming increasingly ambitious, carrying out excavations in more difficult soils, so that excavations are deeper and more extensive. These complex conditions require advanced analysis, design methods and construction...

Design Analysis of Beams, Circular Plates and Cylindrical Tanks on Elastic Foundations: Including Software CD-ROM

2nd Edition

Edmund S. Melerski
May 04, 2006

This extended and revised second edition elaborates on techniques for the numerical analysis of beams, long strips, circular plates, and circular-cylindrical tanks resting on elastic foundations and on unyielding or elastic supports. Emphasis is placed on the simplicity of analysis, while...

Foundation Engineering: Design and Construction in Tropical Soils

1st Edition

B.B.K. Huat, Faisal Haji Ali, Husaini Omar, Harwant Singh
January 19, 2006

Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, being built upon and used as construction materials. Residual soils are formed when the processes of rock weathering proceed at a faster rate than the transport processes by water,...

Mechanics of Ballasted Rail Tracks: A Geotechnical Perspective

1st Edition

Buddhima Indraratna, Wadud Salim
August 11, 2005

In this book, the authors discuss testing of ballast, including the strength, deformation and degradation aspects of fresh and recycled ballast under monotonic and cyclic loading. The effectiveness of geosynthetics in stabilising recycled ballast has also been examined. A new stress-strain...

The Sand Compaction Pile Method

1st Edition

Masaki Kitazume
August 04, 2005

The Sand Compaction Pile or (SCP) method is used frequently in construction to form compacted sand piles by vibration, dynamic impact or static excitation in soft ground. Originally developed in Japan to improve stability or compressibility and to prevent liquefaction failure in loose sand,...

The Premixing Method: Principle, Design and Construction

1st Edition

Coastal Development Institute Tokyo
January 01, 2003

The premixing method involves adding a small amount of cement to the soil used in reclamation. The cement reacts with the water in the soil to produce a stronger, non-liquifying material for construction. The premixing method can therefore reduce construction time, as the counter-measure work...

Piles in Hydrotechnical Engineering

1st Edition

V.G. Fedorovsky, Yu. M Kolesnikov, S.V. Kurillo, S.N. Levachev
January 01, 2002

This work describes studies of pile footings widely applied in hydrotechnical engineering. Generic piles design techniques are discussed and the coupled load analysis of piles subject to vertical, lateral forces and moments, as well as the input data, are defined....
