  2. Risk and Reliability in Geotechnical Engineering

    Edited by Kok-Kwang Phoon, Jianye Ching

    In the last decade reliability-based design methodologies have been adopted or are close to adoption by design codes in USA, Europe, and Japan. This third edition makes these methodologies more accessible to practitioners and researchers by presenting soil statistics which are necessary inputs. It...

  3. Seismic Design of Concrete Buildings to Eurocode 8

    By Michael N. Fardis, Eduardo C. Carvalho, Peter Fajfar, Alain Pecker

    Seismic design of concrete buildings needs to be performed to a strong and recognised standard. Eurocode 8, the first European Standard for seismic design, is having an impact on seismic design standards in countries outside Europe. This book suits graduate or senior undergraduates and practising...

  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. 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,...

  8. 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...

  9. Soil Liquefaction

    A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

    By Michael Jefferies, Ken Been

    Series: Applied Geotechnics

    Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness. It can occur during earthquakes, landslides, or even traffic-induced vibration. The first edition of this book made its mark, and this significantly expanded new edition is updated on a range of issues. It now includes "...
