  1. Risk and Reliability in Geotechnical Engineering

    Edited by Kok-Kwang Phoon, Jianye Ching

    Establishes Geotechnical Reliability as Fundamentally Distinct from Structural Reliability Reliability-based design is relatively well established in structural design. Its use is less mature in geotechnical design, but there is a steady progression towards reliability-based design as seen in the...

  2. 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...

  3. Rock Engineering Risk

    By John A. Hudson, Xia-Ting Feng

    Series: ISRM Book Series

    A follow-on from "Rock Engineering Design" by X.T. Feng and J.A. Hudson, published by CRC Press / Balkema in 2011, this book covers the important subject of rock engineering risk, and will describe and explain risk analysis techniques, the two main types of uncertainty (epistemic and aleatory), and...

  4. 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...

  5. 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,...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. 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 "...
