  2. Rock Engineering Risk

    By John A. Hudson, Xia-Ting Feng

    Series: ISRM Book Series

    There are risks in all construction projects, but engineering in rock masses for civil engineering purposes requires consideration of many more factors than engineering with man-made materials— because the host material, rock, a natural material containing fractures and pre-existing stresses, can...

  3. 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,...

  4. 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...

  5. Practical Rock Mechanics

    By Steve Hencher

    Series: Applied Geotechnics

    This text provides an introduction for graduate students, as well as engineering geologists, and geotechnical and mining engineers. It also suits those working in nuclear waste disposal and oil and gas production. The early chapters deal with fundamental geological processes that give rise to the...

  6. Soil Liquefaction

    A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

    By Mike Jefferies, Ken Been

    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 "...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Risk Management in Civil Infrastructure

    By Mohammed M. Ettouney, Sreenivas Alampalli

    Series: Civil Infrastructure Health and Sustainability

    This book presents several original theories for risk, including Theory of Risk Monitoring, and Theory of Risk Acceptance, in addition to several analytical models for computing relative and absolute risk. The book discusses risk limit, states of risk, and the emerging concept of risk monitoring....
