  1. Prestressed Concrete-Lined Pressure Tunnels

    Towards Improved Safety and Economical Design

    By T.D.Y.F. Simanjuntak

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Hydropower can be a source of sustainable energy, provided environmental considerations are taken into account and economic aspects of hydropower design are appropriately addressed. Using concrete-lined pressure tunnels instead of steel pipes may be economically attractive but may also have...

  5. Rock Mass Homogenization and Numerical Classification

    By Michel Chalhoub

    In the modelling or design phase of many mining or civil projects conducted in rock masses, the designer is confronted with a set of questions that is not always easy to answer. This is mainly due to the anisotropy and heterogeneity of the fractured medium, and to the complexity of the fractures’...

  6. 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,...
