  1. Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Geotechnical Practice

    By Geoffrey E Blight

    There are other books on unsaturated soil mechanics, but this book is different. Unsaturated soil mechanics is only one aspect of a continuous range of soil mechanics studies that extends from the rheology of high water content soil slurries to the mechanics of soft soils, to stiff saturated soils,...

  5. Ground Improvement, Third Edition

    Edited by Klaus Kirsch, Alan Bell

    When finding another location, redesigning a structure, or removing troublesome ground at a project site are not practical options, prevailing ground conditions must be addressed. Improving the ground—modifying its existing physical properties to enable effective, economic, and safe construction—to...

  8. Handbook of Tropical Residual Soils Engineering

    Edited by Bujang B.K. Huat, David G. Toll, Arun Prasad

    Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material. They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity...
