Описание: This text covers theoretical and practical aspects in the design and construction of maritime structures against waves. Topics covered include: wave-structure
interaction; composite and other special breakwaters; structure on piles; risk analysis; and site investigations and data acquisition.
Описание: Construction Engineering Calculations and Rules of Thumb begins with a brief, but rigorous, introduction to the mathematics behind the equations that is followed by self-contained chapters concerning applications for all aspects of construction engineering. Design examples with step-by-step solutions, along with a generous amount of tables, schematics, and calculations are provided to facilitate more accurate solutions through all phases of a project, from planning, through construction and completion.
Описание: Guiding the professional through the complexities of lateral-load design, this set of book and CD-ROM combination introduces the procedures involved in piles
and pile group design. This is a problem that can only be solved by accounting for the soil resistance as related to the lateral deflection of the pile. Intricate equations are derived and
fully explained, enabling the designer to find the critical loads, that will either cause a pile to be overloaded or cause too much lateral deflection.
The CD-ROM contains
simplified versions of two required programs that allow the reader to check the solutions of some of the examples given in the book and to find answers to related problems. Based on
the success of the original, this new edition is thoroughly updated and extended with new analytical methods, and additional chapters, under which a part on performing subsurface
investigations in the design of piles under lateral load. Designed as textbook, it contains many homework problems and additional support material.
Solutions to problems are
available to the course instructor.

Описание: Geotechnical Engineering Calculations and Rules of Thumb, Second Edition, offers geotechnical, civil and structural engineers a concise, easy-to-understand approach to selecting the right formula and solving even most difficult calculations in geotechnical engineering. A "quick look up guide", this book places formulas and calculations at the reader’s finger tips. In this book, theories are explained in a "nutshell" and then the calculation is presented and solved in an illustrated, step-by-step fashion.In its first part, the book covers the fundamentals of Geotechnical Engineering: Soil investigation, condition and theoretical concepts. In the second part it addresses Shallow Foundations, including bearing capacity, elastic settlement, foundation reinforcement, grillage design, footings, geogrids, tie and grade beams, and drainage. This session ends with a chapter on selecting foundation types. The next part covers Earth Retaining Structures and contains chapters on its basic concepts and types, gabion walls and reinforced earth walls. The following part covers Geotechnical Engineering Strategies providing coverage of softwares, instrumentation, excavations, raft design, rock mechanics, dip angle and strike, rock stabilization equipment, soil anchors, tunnel design, seismology, geosynthetics, and slurry cutoff walls. The final part is on Pile Foundations including content on design on sandy soils, clay soils, pin piles, negative skin friction, caissons and pile clusters.In this new and updated edition the author has incorporated new software calculation tools, current techniques for foundation design, liquefaction information, seismic studies, laboratory soil tests, geophysical techniques, new concepts for foundation design and Dam designs. All calculations have been updated to most current material characteristics available in the market.Practicing Geotechnical, Civil and Structural Engineers may find in this book an excellent companion to

Описание: Pile Foundations are an essential basis for many structures. It is vital that they be designed with the utmost reliability, because the cost of failure is potentially huge. Covering a whole range of design issues relating to pile design, this book presents economical and efficient design solutions and demonstrates them using real world examples. Coverage includes nonlinear response of single piles to vertical or torsional loading and to cyclic lateral loading, as well as prediction of nonlinear response of lateral pile groups, vertically loaded pile groups and the design of slope stabilising piles. Most solutions are provided as closed-form expressions. Theory and Practice of Pile Foundations is: illustrated with case studies accompanied by practical applications in Excel and MathCad the first book to incorporate nonlinear interaction into pile design. A valuable resource for students of geotechnical engineering taking courses in foundations and a vital tool for engineers designing pile foundations.
Описание: Tensile surface structures are the visual expression of an intensive examination of the topic of building envelopes in architecture. Advances in design methods, materials, construction elements and assembly and erection planning within the field of lightweight building construction are enabling ever more exacting applications of tensile structures with spatial and structural functions, especially in roofing large column-free areas. However, the particular mechanical characteristics of the materials used raise the question of "buildability". This book provides answers by discussing the fundamental influence of manufacture and assembly when deciding on the most suitable type of structure and its detailing in the design process. The fundamentals of material composition, manufacturing process, patterning and the behaviour of flexible structural systems are explained here, as well as their use as structural and connection elements, while special attention is given to the erection of wide-span lightweight structures. The erection equipment is described, as well as the lifting and tensioning process and the construction methods used to erect the characteristic types of tensile structures, illustrated with a selection of example projects.
Описание: This book introduces the fundamental design concepts of Eurocode 3 for steel structures in building construction, and their practical application. Following a discussion of the basis of design, above all the principles of the limit state approach, the material standards and their use are detailed.

Описание: This work illustrates, how the Analysis of Controlled Deformation in Rocks and Soils (ADECO-RS) modifies the design, projecting, and the construction of tunnels. The ADECO-RS approach makes a clear distinction between the design and the construction moments, allowing reliable forecasts of construction times and costs to be made. It uses the advance core (the core of ground ahead of the face) as a structural tool for the long and short term stabilisation of tunnels, after its rigidity has first been regulated by means of conservation techniques. Tunnels can consequently be driven in difficult stress-strain conditions to predetermined safety standards with precise scheduling and industrialisation of operations. Thanks to this approach the first time project engineers where enabled to apply industrial criteria to the excavation works, even in extremely difficult tenso-deformative terrains and situations.
Описание: In this unique work, the principles of amphibious construction are explained with the concepts of design.
