  1. Soil Liquefaction

    A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

    By Mike Jefferies, Ken Been

    Series: Applied Geotechnics

    A Rigorous and Definitive Guide to Soil Liquefaction Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness for a time—usually a few minutes or less—and which may then cause structural failure, financial loss, and even death. It can occur during earthquakes, from static loading...

  2. Geotechnical Risk and Reliability, an Introduction

    By Robin Chowdhury

    Traditional methods of geotechnical engineering still dominate the approach of risk and reliability. Following the importance of understanding and asssessing geotechnical hazards, vulnerability and risk, new concepts and techniques of reliability analysis have been developed in the last 20 years....

  3. Geotechnical Slope Analysis, 2nd edition

    2nd Edition

    By Robin Chowdhury, Phil Flentje, Gautam Bhattacharya

    This reference book gives a complete overview of the developments in slope engineering over the last 35 years. Its multi-disciplinary, critical approach and the chapters devoted to seismic effects and probabilistic approaches and reliability analyses reflect the distinctive style of the original....

  4. Urban Expansion, Land Cover and Soil Ecosystem Services

    Edited by Ciro Gardi

    More than half of the world population now lives in cities, and urban expansion continues as rural people move to cities. This results in the loss of land for other purposes, particularly soil for agriculture and drainage. This book presents a review of current knowledge of the extension and...

  5. 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...

  6. Centrifuge Modelling in Geotechnics

    By Christophe Gaudin, David White, Mark Randolph

    Series: Applied Geotechnics

    To Be Published April 26th 2016 by CRC Press

  7. Rainfall Induced Soil Slope Failure

    Stability Analysis and Probabilistic Assessment

    By Lulu Zhang, Jianjun Li, Xu Li, Jie Zhang, Hong Zhu

    Rainfall-induced landslides occur globally. With global climate change, their frequency is increasing and the consequences are becoming greater. Previous studies focus on a single discipline -- correlating landslides with rainstorms, geomorphology and hydrology to establish a threshold prediction...
