Forthcoming Books

  1. Rock Engineering Risk

    By John A. Hudson, Xia-Ting Feng

    Series: ISRM Book Series

    This book provides a new, necessary and valuable approach to the consideration of risk in underground engineering projects constructed within rock masses. There are Chapters on uncertainty and risk, rock engineering systems, rock fractures and rock stress, the design of a repository for radioactive...

  2. Microcracking in Rock as Acoustic Emission

    By Tsuyoshi Ishida, Joseph Labuz

    Series: Geomechanics Research Series

    Rock stress and rock damaging are some of the main obstacles encountered when designing and constructing engineering projects with rock. This book will provide a basis to interpret acoustic emission (AE) as damage processes in stressed rock, with applications to stress measurements, size effects,...

  3. Smart Connection Systems

    Design and Seismic Analysis

    By Jong Wan Hu

    This book introduces new smart connection systems which can be used in aseismic building design in order to control inter-story drifts and to reduce residual displacements. They are also utilized as damper devices and base isolators. The application of these systems to composite moment frame...

  4. Soil Liquefaction

    A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

    By Mike Jefferies, Ken Been

    Series: Applied Geotechnics

    A Rigorous and Definitive Guide to Soil Liquefaction Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness for a time—usually a few minutes or less—and which may then cause structural failure, financial loss, and even death. It can occur during earthquakes, from static loading...

  6. Understanding Landslides through Case Histories

    Edited by Serge Leroueil, Luciano Picarelli

    Slope instability is a major problem in many parts of the world. It has affected both the safety of people and that of constructions such as buildings, roads and dams. In order to prevent, assess consequences of or mitigate landslides, a good understanding of the phenomenon is vital. This reference...

  7. Urban Pluvial and Coincidental Flooding

    Edited by Čedo Maksimovic, Adrian Saul

    Series: Urban Water Series

    Pluvial flooding is defined as flooding that results from rainfall-generated overland flow, before the runoff enters any watercourse or sewer. It is usually associated with high intensity rainfall events (typically >30mm/h) but can also occur with lower intensity rainfall or melting snow...

  8. Geotechnical Risk and Reliability, an Introduction

    By Robin Chowdhury

    Traditional methods of geotechnical engineering still dominate the approach of risk and reliability. Following the importance of understanding and asssessing geotechnical hazards, vulnerability and risk, new concepts and techniques of reliability analysis have been developed in the last 20 years....

  9. Earthquake Engineering of Timber Structures

    Modelling and Simulation of Collapse

    By Masamitsu Ohta, Motoi Yasumura, Takafumi Nakagawa

    In recent decades several major earthquakes have caused serious damage to wooden houses, highlighting the need for earthquake-proofing of timber structures. The Japanese Building Research Institute has developed the Wallstat collapse analysis software for damage assessment and prediction of the...
