K. Bhaskar, T.K. Varadan
June 30, 2017

This text provides a complete introduction to the theory of elasticity as applied to isotropic, orthotropic, and laminated structures. Taking an application-oriented approach, the authors clearly emphasize the need for rigorous analysis and illustrate its utility for a variety of problems. The...

Rapid Load Testing on Piles: Interpretation Guidelines

Paul Holscher, Henk Brassinga, Michael Brown, Peter Middendorp, Maarten Profittlich, Frits A. van Tol
June 30, 2017

A Rapid Load Test (RLT), developed to determine the initial stiffness and bearing capacity, is an economical and practical alternative to a Static Load Test (SLT). The broad application of RLT, however, was hampered by uncertainty about the interpretation of the test results. This book offers clear...
