The use of piled raft foundations has significantly increased over the last few decades since taking into account the contribution of the raft to the overall bearing capacity enabled the engineers to design much more efficient piled foundations which perform as well as the conventionally designed ones with significantly lower number of piles. However, although many researchers have been studying on this subject, a user-friendly design procedure is still not available in the literature. This book, therefore, offers two different simple methods to estimate the settlements of the piled raft foundations. Utilizing the charts provided in this book, the settlement of a piled raft foundation can be obtained by simple hand calculations in the first method while it can be calculated by computerized analysis in the second one. This book should be especially useful for the geotechnical experts and/or engineers looking for a simplified method for the analysis of piled rafts and academicians who are interested in thesubject.

Rocscience Phase2 v9.014 [Size: N/A MB] ... RS2 (Phase2 9.0) is a powerful 2D finite element program for soil and rock applications (RS2 = Rock and Soil 2-dimensional analysis program). RS2 can be used for a wide range of engineering projects and includes excavation design, slope stability, groundwater seepage, probabilistic analysis, consolidation, and dynamic analysis capabilities.

Complex, multi-stage models can be easily created and quickly analyzed - tunnels in weak or jointed rock, underground powerhouse caverns, open pit mines and slopes, embankments, MSE stabilized earth structures, and much more. Progressive failure, support interaction and a variety of other problems can be addressed. RS2 offers a wide range of support modeling options. Liner elements can be applied in the modeling of shotcrete, concrete, steel set systems, retaining walls, piles, multi-layer composite liners, geotextiles, and more. Liner design tools include support capacity plots, which allow you to determine the safety factor of reinforced liners. Bolt types include end anchored, fully bonded, cable bolts, split sets, and grouted tiebacks. One of the major features of RS2 is finite element slope stability analysis using the shear strength reduction method. This option is fully automated and can be used with either Mohr-Coulomb or Hoek-Brown strength parameters. Slope models can be imported or exported between Slide and RS2 allowing easy comparison of limit equilibrium and finite element results. RS2 includes steady-state, finite element groundwater seepage analysis built right into the program. There is no need to use a separate groundwater program. Pore pressure is determined as well as flow and gradient, based on user defined hydraulic boundary conditions and material conductivity. Pore pressure results are automatically incorporated into the stress analysis. Material models for rock and soil include Mohr-Coulomb, Generalized Hoek-Brown and Cam-Clay. Powerful new analysis features for modeling jointed rock allow you to automatically generate discrete joint or fracture networks according to a variety of statistical models. With new 64-bit and multi-core parallel processing options RS2 can solve larger and more complex models in shorter times.

This new book provides a multiperspective look at research into many elements of remediating environmental hazards connected to sewage and landfill leachate. Sewage and landfill leachate treatments include various processes that are used to manage and dispose of the liquid portions of solid waste. Untreated leachate and sewage are hazards to the environment if they enter the water system. The goal of treatment is to reduce the contaminating load to the point that leachate and sewage liquids may be safely released into groundwater, streams, lakes, and the ocean.

Around the world, however, huge volumes of contaminated water from sewage and landfill leachate is still pumped directly into water systems, especially in the world’s developing nations. Aside from the damage to marine environments and fisheries that this causes, it also jeopardizes the world’s vulnerable water resources.

This compendium volume explores effective sewage management, which is essential for nutrient recycling and for maintaining ecosystem integrity. It looks at a range of technologies that are available for the treatment of sewage and landfill leachate. The editor, himself a respected and experienced researcher in this field, includes chapters that cover biological treatments, reverse osmosis, and chemical-physical processes. This volume offers important research that will help us both assess our existing treatment facilities, as well as build better, more effective ones for the future.
