Expansive soils: recent advances in characterization and treatment

This ebook presents a extensive insurance of modern advances within the features and therapy of expansive soils. There are 9 elements every one with particular chapters. It starts off with an summary part (Part 1) at the nature, id, and type of expansive soils. components 2 and three care for quantity swap features and swelling capability measurements, respectively.

Solid Mechanics in Engineering

This booklet presents a scientific, sleek creation to sturdy mechanics that's conscientiously inspired via practical Engineering functions. in line with 25 years of training adventure, Raymond Parnes makes use of a wealth of examples and a wealthy set of difficulties to construct the reader's realizing of the medical ideas, with out requiring 'higher mathematics'.

Structural Dynamics: Theory and Computation

Resolution of structural dynamics difficulties is brought during this new version. This application was once chosen from one of the numerous specialist courses to be had as a result of its strength in fixing complicated difficulties in constructions in addition to its huge use in expert perform by way of structural engineers. SAP2000 comprises exercises for the research and layout of constructions with linear or nonlinear habit subjected to static or dynamics lots; (material non-linearity or huge displacements non-linearities) and should be used such a lot successfully within the microcomputer.

Geomorphology for Engineers

"Geomorphological landforms and strategies exert a robust impact on floor engineering works, but relatively little systematic info on geomorphology is on the market to engineers. This ebook offers a complete around the globe view of geomorphology for engineers and different pros at the near-surface engineering difficulties linked to a few of the landscapes.
