  5. Foundation Engineering

    Design and Construction in Tropical Soils

    Edited by B.B.K. Huat, Faisal Haji Ali, Husaini Omar, Harwant Singh

    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,...

  6. Mechanics of Ballasted Rail Tracks

    A Geotechnical Perspective

    By Buddhima Indraratna, Wadud Salim

    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...

  7. The Sand Compaction Pile Method

    By Masaki Kitazume

    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,...

  8. Dynamic Effects of Pile Installation on Adjacent Structures

    By Richard Woods, V. M. Sharma

    Vibrations caused by pile-driving can damage structures, while litigation may result from the human distress which pile-driving induces. There are ways to mitigate both aspects of the problem and it is important to assess the likelihood of damage and to minimize any ensuing costs early in the...
