  1. Unsaturated Soils, Two Volume Set

    Edited by Eduardo E. Alonso, Antonio Gens

    In recent decades the development of unsaturated soil mechanics has been remarkable, resulting in momentous advances in fundamental knowledge, testing techniques, computational procedures, prediction methodologies and geotechnical practice. The advances have spanned the full spectrum of theory and...

  3. Ground Improvement By Deep Vibratory Methods

    By Klaus Kirsch, Fabian Kirsch

    Vibro-compaction and vibro-stone columns are the two dynamic methods of soil improvement most commonly used worldwide. These methods have been developed over seventy years and are now in a position of unrivalled importance amongst modern foundation measures. The first works on granular soil by...

  4. Soil Physics with HYDRUS

    Modeling and Applications

    By David E. Radcliffe, Jiri Simunek

    Numerical models have become much more efficient, making their application to problems increasingly widespread. User-friendly interfaces make the setup of a model much easier and more intuitive while increased computer speed can solve difficult problems in a matter of minutes. Co-authored by the...

  5. Cut-and-Cover Metro Structures

    Geo-Structural Design: An Integrated Approach

    By Krishan Kaul

    Because of their complexity and scale, metro structures capture all the essential aspects of a cut-and-cover structure, and so are given primary focus in this book. The design of a metro construction is outlined coherently and in detail; and the reader is shown how to apply this design process...

  6. Geosynthetic Clay Liners for Waste Containment Facilities

    By Abdelmalek Bouazza, John J. Bowders, Jr.

    Increasingly stringent regulation of pollution and waste production worldwide drives the need to isolate contaminants that pose a threat to human and environmental health by using engineered barrier systems involving the use of low permeable materials. Over the past two decades, geosynthetic clay...

  7. Unsaturated Soils, Two Volume Set

    Experimental Studies in Unsaturated Soils and Expansive Soils (Vol. 1) & Theoretical and Numerical Advances in Unsaturated Soil Mechanics (Vol. 2)

    Edited by Olivier Buzzi, S. Fityus, D. Sheng

    Unsaturated soil mechanics is now increasingly recognized as an integral part of mainstream soil mechanics, and the importance and relevance of unsaturated soil mechanics for the broad field of geotechnical engineering no longer needs to be emphasized. The two volumes making up Unsaturated...

  8. Containment of High-Level Radioactive and Hazardous Solid Wastes with Clay Barriers

    By Raymond N. Yong, Roland Pusch, Masashi Nakano

    Series: Spon Research

    One of the principal objections to or problems with the use of nuclear fuel is that a proven method for safe disposal of spent nuclear fuel has yet to be established. The central focus of most schemes underway to dispose of these high-level radioactive wastes relies on clay-based buffers and...

  9. Ground Gas Handbook

    By Steve Wilson, Geoff Card, Sarah Haines

    This handbook provides practical guidance on assessing ground gas risk and the design of appropriate protection measures. It discusses the assessment of ground gas for Part II A sites and also includes information on the assessment of vapours. It provides information on gas generation and the...

  10. In Situ Testing in Geomechanics

    The Main Tests

    By Fernando Schnaid

    Demanding a thorough knowledge of material behaviour and numerical modelling, site characterisation and in situ test interpretation are no longer just basic empirical recommendations. Giving a critical appraisal of the understanding and assessment of the stress-strain-time and strength...
