  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. Very Soft Organic Clay Applied for Road Embankment

    Modelling and Optimisation Approach, UNESCO-IHE PhD, Delft, the Netherlands

    By C. Limsiri

    In this book strategies for using very soft organic clay as a fill material for road embankment constructions are compared, and an optimisation scheme is presented. Computer programs for simulation of evaporative drying, for simulation of consolidation, and for slope stability calculation were used...

  7. Geotechnics of Soft Soils: Focus on Ground Improvement

    Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop held in Glasgow, Scotland, 3 - 5 September 2008

    Edited by Minna Karstunen, Martino Leoni

    Natural soft soils are very complex materials. As construction activities increasingly take place in poor ground conditions, ground improvement is often required. However, design practices for ground improvement were for long at best crude and conservative, and at worst unsafe. Although new...
