Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II deals with the geotechnics of roads, railways and airfields. Providing economic and sustainable transportation infrastructures for societies is highly dependent on progress made in this field. These contributions to the 2nd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (Hokkaido, Japan, 10-12 September 2012), held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), cover a broad range of technical topics, including those addressed by the first conference held in Nottingham, UK in 2008. Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II contains a total of 138 reviewed papers from 29 countries in addition to 5 invited papers prepared by distinguished keynote lecturers, and addresses the following themes: - Geotechnics of pavements, railway tracks and airfields; - Geomaterial, including non-traditional materials; - Asphalt mixtures and hydraulically-bound materials; - Earthworks for transportation facilities; - Application of geosynthetics; - Laboratory testing and in-situ testing; - Modeling and numerical simulations; - Design, construction and maintenance; - Performance evaluation and quality control; - Sustainability of management and rehabilitation; - Risk assessment and environmental issues. Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II will be of interest to professionals and academics involved in geotechnical and pavement engineering of roads, railways and airfields.
Highways provide the arteries of modern society. The interaction of road, rail and other transport infrastructure with the ground is unusually intimate, and thus needs to be well-understood to provide economic and reliable infrastructure for society. Challenges include not only the design of new infrastructure (often on problematic ground), but increasingly the management and maintenance of aging assets in the face of issues such as climate change. This book is the written record of the first International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, held in Nottingham, UK, in 2008. It comprises about 100 papers from a global selection of researchers and practitioners on: – Slope instability, stabilisation, and asset management; – Construction on soft ground; – Interaction with structures and geogrid reinforced soil; – Effect of climate change and vegetation; – Highways, pavements and subgrade; – Railway geotechnics; – Soil improvement; – Characterisation and recycling of geomaterials. A further part of this collection contains papers on unbound aggregate materials as used in pavement construction and drainage. They formed the ‘Unbound Aggregates in Roads (UNBAR7)’ theme of the conference which followed on from the previous symposia of that title, also held in Nottingham, UK, most recently in 2004. The volume will be of interest to professionals and academics in geotechnical, highway, railway and general civil engineering.
"Advances in Environmental Geotechnics" presents the latest developments in this interdisciplinary field. The topics covered include basic and advanced theories for modeling of geoenvironmental phenomena, testing and monitoring for geoenvironmental engineering, municipal solid wastes and landfill engineering, sludge and dredged soils, geotechnical reuse of industrial wastes, contaminated land and remediation technology, applications of geosynthetics in geoenvironmental engineering, geoenvironmental risk assessment, management and sustainability, ecological techniques and case histories. This proceedings includes papers authored by core members of ISSMGE TC5 (International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering---Environmental Geotechnics) and geoenvironmental researchers from more than 20 countries and regions. It is a valuable reference for geoenvironmental and geotechnical engineers as well as civil engineers. Yunmin Chen, Xiaowu Tang, and Liangtong Zhan are Professors at the Department of Civil Engineering of Zhejiang University, China.
Developing countries in the tropics have different natural conditions and different institutional and financial situations to industrialized countries. However, most textbooks on highway engineering are based on experience from industrialized countries with temperate climates, and deal only with specific problems. Road Engineering for Development (published as Highway and Traffic Engineering in Developing Countries in its first edition) provides a comprehensive description of the planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads in developing countries. It covers a wide range of technical and non-technical problems that may confront road engineers working in this area. The technical content of the book has been fully updated and current development issues are focused on. Designed as a fundamental text for civil engineering students this book also offers a broad, practical view of the subject for practising engineers. It has been written with the assistance of a number of world-renowned specialist professional engineers with many years experience in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Central America.
Plasticity and Geotechnics is the first attempt to summarize and present in a single volume the major achievements in the field of plasticity theory for geotechnical materials and its applications to geotechnical analysis and design. The book emerges from the author’s belief that there is an urgent need for the geotechnical and solid mechanics community to have a unified presentation of plasticity theory and its application to geotechnical engineering.
This volume contains papers presented during the first international PLAXIS symposium. Topics covered include: general geo-technical aspects; tunnels and deep excavations, and education and research. This pack is meant for the user of the PLAXIS program, as well as engineers and researchers.
The study of the solid part of the earth on which structures are built is an essential part of the training of a civil engineer. Geotechnical processes such as drilling, pumping and injection techniques enhance the viability of many construction processes by improving ground conditions. Highlighting the ground investigation necessary for the process, the likely improvement in strength of treated ground and testing methods An Introduction to Geotechnical Processes covers the elements of ground treatment and improvement, from the control of groundwater, drilling and grouting to ground anchors and electro-chemical hardening.
