New theories and testing techniques related with Unsaturated Soil Mechanics have proven to be valuable tools to study a broad spectrum of geo-materials which includes rocks, rock fills, frozen soils and domiciliary solid wastes. These new theories and testing techniques have permitted the analysis of several traditional problems from a new perspective (e.g., swelling or collapsible soils and compacted soils or pavements materials), and they have also shown their efficiency to study new energy-related problems like CO2 sequestration and nuclear waste disposal. Advances in Unsaturated Soils is a collection of papers from the 1st Pan-American Conference on Unsaturated Soils organized in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, in February 2013. The volume includes 76 research papers coming for all over the world, as well as 7 keynotes papers by well known international researchers. The contributions present a variety of topics including: • Advances in testing techniques • Unsaturated soil behavior • Constitutive modeling and microstructure • Numerical modeling • Geotechnical problems Advances in Unsaturated Soils is expected to become a useful reference to academics and professionals involved in Unsaturated Soil Mechanics.

Submarine mass movements are a hidden geohazard with large destructive potential for submarine installations and coastal areas. This hazard and associated risk is growing in proportion with increasing population of coastal urban agglomerations, industrial infrastructure, and coastal tourism. Also, the intensified use of the seafloor for natural resource production, and deep sea cables constitutes an increasing risk. Submarine slides may alter the coastline and bear a high tsunamogenic potential. There is a potential link of submarine mass wasting with climate change, as submarine landslides can uncover and release large amounts greenhouse gases, mainly methane, that are now stored in marine sediments. The factors that govern the stability of submarine slopes against failure, the processes that lead to slope collapses and the collapse processes by themselves need to be better understood in order to foresee and prepare society for potentially hazardous events. This book volume consists of a collection of cutting edge scientific research by international experts in the field, covering geological, geophysical, engineering and environmental aspects of submarine slope failures. The focus is on understanding the full spectrum of challenges presented by this major coastal and offshore geohazard.

"Soils and rocks are complex natural geomaterials that exhibit a wide range in strength, stiffness, state of stress, structure, and flow characteristics. Geotechnical & Geophysical Site Characterization provides eleven keynote state-of-the-art papers, including the Mitchell Lecture. A total selection of 219 technical papers and theme reports address methods of site exploration related to ground exploration for civil engineering and construction works. These two volumes represent a collection of experience & knowledge regarding various methods of in-situ testing, geophysical techniques, innovative devices, improved interpretation algorithms, and statistical treatment of field data for the characterization of soils, rocks, and other geomaterials. The papers represent the written records and documented efforts from international experts from industry, academe, and government who participated in the Second International Conference on Site Characterization held in Porto, Portugal on September 20-22, 2004. Topics include the utilization of rotary drilling, sampling, and coring techniques. Of particular interest is the variety of in-situ tests, including standard penetration, cone penetration, flat dilatometer, pressuremeter, vane shear, piezocone, dynamic probes, and specialized tools, as well as geophysical approaches: resistivity surveys, surface waves, crosshole, downhole, electromagnetic conductivity, and ground penetrating radar. A careful and proper site evaluation is required in the analysis and design of new structures, construction monitoring, and forensic studies that require remediation. Many of the contributions relate to case studies of projects that involve shallow foundations, drilled shafts, pilings, slope stability, excavations, earth dams, tunnels, and mining. Several papers discuss a combined approach using multiple methods and/or complementary set of geotechnical & geophysical tests to ascertain the characteristics of the ground."--back cover.

Handbook of Geotechnical Investigation and Design Tables

Handbook of Geotechnical Investigation and Design Tables

This practical handbook of properties for soils and rock contains in a concise tabular format the key issues relevant to geotechnical investigations, assessments and designs in common practice. There are brief notes on the application of the tables. These data tables are compiled for experienced geotechnical professionals who require a reference document to access key information. There is an extensive database of correlations for different applications. The book should provide a useful bridge between soil and rock mechanics theory and its application to practical engineering solutions. The initial chapters deal with the planning of the geotechnical investigation and the classification of the soil and rock properties, after which some of the more used testing is covered. Later chapters show the reliability and correlations that are used to convert that data in the interpretative and assessment phase of the project. The final chapters apply some of these concepts to geotechnical design. The emphasis throughout is on application to practice. This book is intended primarily for practicing geotechnical engineers working in investigation, assessment and design, but should provide a useful supplement for postgraduate courses. It evolved from the need to have a "go to" reference book which has both breadth and depth of information to apply immediately to projects. To keep to a handbook size one has to compress/restrict details to a few key bullet points – but a comprehensive reference list provides the "appendix" for additional information if required. This 2nd edition keeps to that format but contains updated information and adjustments that take into account feedback received since initial publication.
