Presents a systematic and comprehensive presentation of temporary excavation shoring and earth retention systems used to construct permanent facilities inside them. These systems are used to construct underground pipelines, tunnels, tank and storage facilities, foundations and structures. Each chapter presents a shoring system type description, how it is constructed, equipment requirements, cost analysis, etc. Safety, inspection and testing codes and methods included throughout. Written by an industry expert with three decades’ experience, this detailed handbook presents a systematic and comprehensive presentation of these complex systems.

Each chapter describes a type of shoring system and includes coverage of: How it is constructed and when the particular system should and should not be used * Equipment requirements, size, and tricks of the trade * Cost comparison * Engineering design principals and design methods *Codes and standards * Testing and inspection methods * And more... Invaluable to firms involved in earth excavation, geotechnical and structural engineers, field supervisors, as well as safety officers, here is the definitive reference for anyone involved in the process of earth retention.
