  1. Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterization 4

    Edited by Roberto Quental Coutinho, Paul W. Mayne

    Site characterization is a fundamental step towards the proper design, construction and long term performance of all types of geotechnical projects, ranging from foundation, excavation, earth dams, embankments, seismic hazards, environmental issues, tunnels, near and offshore structures. The Fourth...

  3. Rapid Load Testing on Piles

    Interpretation Guidelines

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

    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...

  4. Piles and Pile Foundations

    By Carlo Viggiani, Alessandro Mandolini, Gianpiero Russo

    Piled foundations are generally designed using empirical methods, in particular the traditional capacity based approach on which the majority of codes of practice are based. However in recent years the analysis of pile groups and piled rafts has undergone substantial development in the light of new...

  5. Offshore Geotechnical Engineering

    By Mark Randolph, Susan Gourvenec

    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...

  6. Single Piles and Pile Groups Under Lateral Loading, 2nd Edition

    By Lymon C. Reese, William F. Van Impe

    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...

  8. Ground Improvement By Deep Vibratory Methods

    By Klaus Kirsch, Fabian Kirsch

    Vibro-compaction and vibro-stone columns are the two dynamic methods of soil improvement most commonly used worldwide. These methods have been developed over seventy years and are now in a position of unrivalled importance amongst modern foundation measures. The first works on granular soil by...

  10. Foundations for Industrial Machines

    Handbook for Practising Engineers

    By K.G. Bhatia

    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....
