Описание: Introduces an innovative reliability-based method for risk assessment in geotechnical engineering. Building on the Finite Element Mehtod, the Random Finite Element Method presented in this book allows the reader to create a better model for analyzing the properties and possible failure of a slope, mine shaft, foundation, embankment, or surface soil. By better modeling the spatially variable nature of soil and rock in the real world, the method presents a more accurate simulation which leads to safer designs. After introducing the threory the book presents 9 examples of the method in practice, utilizing the included software to demonstrate its use in the evaluation and design stages.
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 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: This one-stop resource--filled with in-depth earthquake engineering analysis, testing procedures, seismic and construction codes--features new coverage of the 2012 International Building Code.
Описание: Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics, as well as their interface with Engineering Seismology, Geophysics and Seismology, have all made remarkable progress over the past 15 years, mainly due to the development of instrumented large scale experimental facilities, to the increase in the quantity and quality of recorded earthquake data, to the numerous well-documented case studies from recent strong earthquakes as well as enhanced computer capabilities. One of the major factors contributing to the aforementioned progress is the increasing social need for a safe urban environment, large infrastructures and essential facilities. The main scope of our book is to provide the geotechnical engineers, geologists and seismologists, with the most recent advances and developments in the area of earthquake geotechnical engineering, seismology and soil dynamics.
Описание: Knowledge surrounding the behavior of earth materials is important to a number of industries, including the mining and construction industries. Further research into the field of geotechnical engineering can assist in providing the tools necessary to analyze the condition and properties of the earth.Technology and Practice in Geotechnical Engineering brings together theory and practical application, thus offering a unified and thorough understanding of soil mechanics.
