Foundation Design: Principles and Practices (2nd Edition)


Foundation Design: Principles and Practices (2nd Edition)

By Donald P. Coduto

Publisher: Prentice Hall

Number Of Pages: 883

Publication Date: 2000-07-20

ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0135897068

ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780135897065

Binding: Hardcover

Using a design-oriented approach that addresses geotechnical, structural, and construction aspects of foundation engineering, this book explores practical methods of designing structural foundations, while emphasizing and explaining how and why foundations behave the way they do. It explains the theories and experimental data behind the design procedures, and how to apply this information to real-world problems. Covers general principles (performance requirements, soil mechanics, site exploration and characterization); shallow foundations (bearing capacity, settlement, spread footings -- geotechnical design, spread footings -- structural design, mats); deep foundations (axial load capacity -- full-scale load tests, static methods, dynamic methods; lateral load capacity; structural design); special topics (foundations on weak and compressible soils, foundation on expansive soils, foundations on collapsible soils); and earth retaining structures (lateral earth pressures, cantilever retaining walls, sheet pile walls, soldier pile walls, internally stabilized earth retaining structures). For geotechnical engineers, soils engineers, structural engineers, and foundation engineers.

Computational Geomechanics with Special Reference to Earthquake Engineering


Computational Geomechanics with Special Reference to Earthquake Engineering

By O. C. Zienkiewicz, A. H. C. Chan, M. Pastor, B. A. Schrefler, T. Shiomi

Publisher: Wiley

Number Of Pages: 398

Publication Date: 1999-05-11

ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0471982857

ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780471982852

Binding: Hardcover

Computational Geomechanics:

introduces the full theory of dynamic and static behaviour of porous media and shows how computation can predict the deformations of a structure, subject to an earthquake or consolidation.

introduces the use of numerical, finite element procedures for soil and rock mechanics problems which has increased rapidly throughout the last decade.

provides a comprehensive survey of major, constitutive models, which can simulate soil behaviour rationally.

explains practical procedures based on computational experience for real projects with particular emphasis on earthquake engineering.

Static problems which occupy a particular area of dynamics can also be solved by identical methods, making the book relevant to all researchers and engineers concerned with geomechanics. Earthquake Engineering is stressed throughout as it is in this field that the most difficult examples arise; however, other applications are also noted.



Expansive Soils: Advances in Characterization and Treatment


Expansive Soils: Advances in Characterization and Treatment

By Amer Ali Al-Rawas, Mattheus F. A. Goosen

Publisher: Taylor & Francis

Number Of Pages: 550

Publication Date: 2006-06-02

ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0415396816

ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780415396813

Binding: Hardcover

With their ability to swell and shrink in relation to the environment's water content, expansive soils are considered as geonatural hazards and form a challenge to geotechnical and construction engineers. Addressing the problems associated with these soils, this book provides expert contributions on the recent advances in the characteristics and treatment of expansive soils. Beginning with an overview on the nature, identification, and classification of expansive soils, it confronts current issues including volume change characteristics; site characterization; the measurement and assessment of soil swelling potential; suction; lime and cement stabilization and other stabilization methods.
