Specialty Construction Techniques for Dam and Levee Remediation

Donald A. Bruce
April 28, 2017

Dam and levee remediation has become more prevalent since the start of the twenty-first century. Given the vastness and complexity of the infrastructures involved, keeping up with maintenance needs is very difficult. Major surges in repair are usually triggered by nature’s wake-up calls, such as...

Dynamical Systems-Based Soil Mechanics

Paul Joseph
April 24, 2017

This book is a short yet rigorous course on a new paradigm in soil mechanics, one that holds that soil deformation occurs as a simple friction-based Poisson process in which soil particles move to their final position at random shear strains. It originates from work by Casagrande’s soil mechanics...

Practical Guide to Rock Tunneling

Dean Brox
April 21, 2017

This Practical Guide to Rock Tunneling fills an important void in the literature for a practical guide to the design and construction of tunnels in rock. Practical Guide to Rock Tunneling takes the reader through all the critical steps of the design and construction for rock tunnels starting from...

Particulate Discrete Element Modelling: A Geomechanics Perspective

Catherine O'Sullivan
April 16, 2017

Particulate discrete element analysis is becoming increasingly popular for research in geomechanics as well as geology, chemical engineering, powder technology, petroleum engineering and in studying the physics of granular materials. With increased computing power, practising engineers are also...

Offshore Geotechnical Engineering

Mark Randolph, Susan Gourvenec
April 16, 2017

Design practice in offshore geotechnical engineering has grown out of onshore practice, but the two application areas have tended to diverge over the last thirty years, driven partly by the scale of the foundation and anchoring elements used offshore, and partly by fundamental differences in...

Sustainable Practices in Geoenvironmental Engineering, Second Edition

Raymond N. Yong, Catherine N. Mulligan, Masaharu Fukue
April 13, 2017

In the seven years since the publication of the first edition of Sustainable Practices in Geoenvironmental Engineering, the combination of population growth and increased exploitation of renewable and non-renewable natural resources has added increased stresses on the quality and health of the...

Jet Grouting: Technology, Design and Control

Paolo Croce, Alessandro Flora, Giuseppe Modoni
March 31, 2017

Unlike similar titles providing general information on ground improvement, Jet Grouting: Technology, Design and Control is entirely devoted to the role of jet grouting – its methods and equipment, as well as its applications. It discusses the possible effects of jet grouting on different soils and...

Immersed Tunnels

Richard Lunniss, Jonathan Baber
March 31, 2017

Immersed tunnels have been around for more than a century but remain a relatively unknown form of tunnel construction. For waterway crossings they are an effective alternative to bored tunnels and bridges, particularly in shallower waters, soft alluvial soils, and earthquake-prone areas. Successful...
