  4. 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,...

  5. 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...
