en Limba Engleză Hardback – 21 aug 2023
GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING While there are many textbooks on the market that cover geotechnical engineering basics, Geotechnical Engineering is unique in that it is the only textbook available that is rooted within the three phase unsaturated soil mechanics framework. Written by world-renowned, award-winning geotechnical engineering expert Dr. Jean-Louis Briaud, this Second Edition offers the most comprehensive coverage of geotechnical engineering topics on the market, from theory to real-world application. In addition to many updates and revisions, a major chapter has been added, covering 22 geo-engineering case histories. They are: * Washington Monument (shallow mat foundation) * Rissa Landslide (slope stability) * Seattle 46 M-High MSE Wall (retaining wall) * The New Orleans Charity Hospital Foundation (deep foundation) * The Eurotunnel Linking France and England (tunnel) * The Teton Dam (earth dam erosion) * The Woodrow Wilson Bridge (bridge scour) * San Jacinto Monument (shallow mat foundation) * Pointe du Hoc Cliffs (rock erosion) * The Tower of PISA (shallow foundation) * The Transcona Silo (shallow foundation) * The Saint John River Bridge Abutment (slope stability) * Foundation of Briaud's House (shrink swell soils) * The Eiffel Tower (deep foundation) * St. Isaac Cathedral (mat foundation) * National Geotechnical Experimentation Sites at Texas A&M University (full scale infrastructure tests) * The 827 M-High Burj Khalifa Tower Foundation (combined pile raft foundation) * New Orleans Levees and Katrina Hurricane (overtopping erosion) * Three Gorges Dam (concrete dam) * The Kansai International Airport (earth fill in the sea) * The Panama Canal (excavated slopes) * The Nice Airport Slope Failure (slope stability) From site investigation and geophysics to earthquake engineering and deep foundations, Geotechnical Engineering is an ideal resource for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as practicing professionals in geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics.
