Slope Safety Preparedness for Impact of Climate Change

Ken Ho, Suzanne Lacasse, Luciano Picarelli
December 13, 2016

Many countries are increasingly threatened by major landslide disasters and fatalities due to extreme weather events which have major implications for public safety and the sustainability of infrastructure and the built environment. A further increase in such a trend could come from climate change....

Time-Dependency in Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering

Ömer Aydan
December 12, 2016

This book is concerned with time-dependency in rock mechanics and rock engineering, whose spectrum is very wide. While the term “time-dependency” involves time-dependent behavior/rate-dependent behavior of rocks in a conventional sense, this books attempts to cover the spectrum as much as possible...

Shear Behavior of Composite Soils

Yanrong Li
December 12, 2016

This book has the purpose of developing an understanding of the factors determining and influencing the shear behavior of soils, with emphasis on composite soils, as they are the most encountered materials in geological and geotechnical engineering in mountainous areas. This objective is reached by...

Design of Electrical Transmission Lines: Structures and Foundations

Sriram Kalaga, Prasad Yenumula
December 09, 2016

This book covers structural and foundation systems used in high-voltage transmission lines, conductors, insulators, hardware and component assembly. In most developing countries, the term “transmission structures” usually means lattice steel towers. The term actually includes a vast range of...

Flood Hazard Mapping: Uncertainty and its Value in the Decision-making Process

Micah Mukungu Mukolwe
December 06, 2016

Computers are increasingly used in the simulation of natural phenomena such as floods. However, these simulations are based on numerical approximations of equations formalizing our conceptual understanding of flood flows. Thus, model results are intrinsically subject to uncertainty and the use of...
