Описание: Risk and reliability analysis is an area of growing importance in geotechnical engineering, where many variables have to be considered. Statistics, reliability modeling anngineering judgement are employed together to develop risk and decision analyses for civil engineering systems. The resulting engineering models are used to make probabilistic predictions, which are applied to geotechnical problems.
Описание: This publication contains the abstracts of 20 papers, the majority of which were presented at the International Workshop on Limit State Design in Geotechnical Engineering Practice (LSD2003). The complete contributions are available in the accompanying CD-ROM (special lecture not included). The topics covered include: performance-based and limit state design philosophies; issues arising from the implementation of limit state design codes; elaborations of "measured values," "derived values" and "characteristic values"; reliability-based methodologies for analytical calibration of partial factors; and application of partial factors in FEM where highly nonlinear force-deformation behaviors may govern.

Описание: Suitable as a textbook for students of geotechnical engineering, this title provides information on the mechanics of soils and soil-structure interaction. It gives a presentation of the fundamental principles of soil mechanics and demonstrates how these principles are applied in practice to engineering problems and geotechnical design.
Описание: Volume 1 covers the basics necessary for any construction activity in foundation engineering. This systematic introduction to the assessment of soil and rock properties provides an insight into the requirements of Eurocode 7, Parts 1 and 3. It also gives details of geotechnical laboratory and field tests and the associated equipment, concise treatments of relevant solutions provided by the theories of elasticity and plasticity and numerical methods applied to solve problems of geotechnical design. The problems of earthquakes are also explained with regard to Eurocode 8.
Описание: Volume 2 of the Handbook covers the geotechnical procedures used in manufacturing anchors and piles as well as for improving or underpinning foundations, securing existing constructions, controlling ground water, excavating rocks and earth works. It also treats such specialist areas as the use of geotextiles and seeding.
Описание: This handbook discusses, in one volume, a wide array of topics that have entered the mainstream of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering over
the past two decades, while at the same time not losing sight of the more conventional aspects of the discipline. The topics covered range from conventional saturated soil mechanics
to unsaturated soil behavior, rock mechanics, hydrogeology and geosynthetics. The book deals with pavements, shallow and deep foundations, embankments, slopes, retaining walls,
buried structures, dynamics and earthquakes, contaminant transport, groundwater monitoring, and the containment, treatment and remediation of contaminated sites.
assessment and risk-based management for both geotechnical and geoenvironmental applications are discussed.The book is intended as a handbook both for individuals requiring an
introduction to a given topic and practitioners and researchers already knowledgeable in the field but seeking a quick reference to refresh their memory regarding the most recent
techniques and guidance to other places to look for more information. The various chapters of the book have been extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader who opens the
book at the section most relevant to their current needs in finding other relevant material in this book. The 50 contributors to the 30 chapters of the book are all recognized experts in
their field - from industry and the academic world.
Описание: This book presents a comprehensive coverage of the two interrelated and interdisciplinary fields of seismic microzonation and earthquake geotechnical engineering. The introduction and the first chapter by two prominent researchers in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering are setting the stage for the main theme of the book. The second chapter gives a general overview of the methods for estimating earthquake impact in large urban areas and the importance of the scale in zonation studies. The six following chapters are dealing with the main topics of strong ground motion, site characterization, site effects, liquefaction, and seismic microzonation. The last three chapters are concerned with geotechnical earthquake engineering, with special emphasis on solid waste landfills and lining systems, and earthquake resistant design of shallow and deep foundation subjected to earthquakes.CD-ROM included containing full-color versions of figures which are printed in black-and-white in the book itself.
Описание: After the devastating disaster caused by the tsunami on 26 December 2004, disaster mitigation and rehabilitation have become some of the most pressing
topics for discussion in geotechnical engineering and related professions. Some of the most important contributions to this discussion were made during the International Conference on
Geotechnical Engineering for Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation, the first of its kind held in the Asia-Pacific region. It was organized by the Joint Working Group on Geotechnical
Engineering for Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation (JWG-DMR), which is supported by national geotechnical societies from Australia, China, India, Indonesia,
apan, South Korea, Southeast Asia (comprising Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand) and Sri Lanka.
Disaster management encompasses diverse topics such as natural
disasters (tsunamis, earthquakes, landslides, etc.), mitigation (early warning and prediction systems, hazard mapping, risk analysis, coastal protection works, etc.), rehabilitation and
reconstruction (difficult soils and ground treatment, design against earthquakes and other natural disasters, etc.), and many others, including soil dynamics, liquefaction, stability, and
environmental protection. This volume contains over 100 high quality papers contributed by authors from participating countries, including keynote and invited lectures delivered by
eminent researchers and practitioners. The proceedings will benefit the geotechnical profession as a whole, in particular those who are involved in disaster prevention, mitigation,
rehabilitation and reconstruction works.
In addition, the contributions will add impetus to research and development in this important domain: the long-term goal is to mitigate
the unacceptable magnitude of destruction and the number of human lives lost such as in the recent 2004 tsunami tragedy.
Описание: Volume one of this book comprises about 200 papers presented at the Twelfth Asian Regional Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
These papers showcase the latest developments and know-how in design and construction practices as well as theoretical advances in various geotechnical engineering fields. The
majority of the contributors are from Asian countries, notably Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore and India; a good number of papers are from outside Asia.
Volume two is
a post-conference volume comprising keynote lectures on soil dynamics and earthquake engineering, major mass rapid transit, high speed railway and dam projects, and soil
reinforcement, delivered by prominent researchers and practising engineers. Thematic lectures and panel presentations on specific geotechnical engineering topics such as natural
disasters, land reclamation, limit state design and earth reinforcement, from conference sessions organized by technical committees, are also included. In addition, this volume presents
the written discussions of the conference sessions.
Описание: Communication of design risk within a transparent and rational framework is necessary in view of the increasing interest in code harmonization, public
involvement in defining acceptable risk levels, and risk-sharing among client, consultant, insurer, and financier. Activities in code harmonization are particularly noteworthy. For the
geotechnical engineering profession, there is added pressure for it to undergo a significant revamp because structural and geotechnical design are increasingly incompatible.
The contributions in this volume tackle the important issues re
ating to new generation geotechnical design codes, in a bid to move geotechnical engineers forward together with the significant changes occurring at the global level.
