The safe and economical construction of tunnels, mines, and other subterranean works depends on the correct choice of support systems to ensure that the excavations are stable. These support systems should be matched to the characterstics of the rock mass and the excavation techniques adopted. Establishing the support requirements, designing support systems and installing these correctly are essential elements in safe underground construction. This is a comprehensive and practical work which also gives access to user-friendly computer programmes which enable the investigation and design of support techniques. Details on how to obtain this software are also included in the book.

Braja M. Das, Sanjay Kumar Shukla ... 344 pages - Publisher: J. Ross Publishing; 2nd edition (May, 2013) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 1604270772 - ISBN-13: 978-1604270778

Anchors are primarily used in the construction of foundations of earth-supported and earth-retaining structures. The fundamental reason for using earth anchors in construction is to transmit the outwardly directed load to the soil at a greater depth and/or farther away from the structure. Although earth anchors have been used in practice for several hundred years, proper theoretical developments for purposes of modern engineering designs have taken place only during the past 40 to 45 years. This book summarizes most theoretical and experimental works directed toward the development of proper relationships for the ultimate and allowable holding capacity of earth anchors. Key Features: A discussion on single-helix screw anchors in sand has been added to Chapter 6 + Two new chapters have been added: Suction and Caisson Anchors (Chapter 9) and Geo-Anchors (Chapter 10) A summary section and self-assessment multiple-choice questions, with answers, are provided at the end of each chapter. + Details horizontal, vertical, and inclined anchor plates, helical anchors, and anchor piles. + Reviews the failure mechanism in soil located around the anchor as well as various theories to calculate the ultimate and allowable loads. + Includes laboratory and field test results to supplement and verify the theories in the book.

Devised with a focus on problem solving, Geotechnical Problem Solving bridges the gap between geotechnical and soil mechanics material covered in university Civil Engineering courses and the advanced topics required for practicing Civil, Structural and Geotechnical engineers. By giving newly qualified engineers the information needed to apply their extensive theoretical knowledge, and informing more established practitioners of the latest developments, this book enables readers to consider how to confidently approach problems having thought through the various options available. Where various competing solutions are proposed, the author systematically leads through each option, weighing up the benefits and drawbacks of each, to ensure the reader can approach and solve real-world problems in a similar manner. The scope of material covered includes a range of geotechnical topics, such as soil classification, soil stresses and strength and soil self-weight settlement. Shallow and deep foundations are analyzed, including special articles on laterally loaded piles, retaining structures including MSE and Tieback walls, slope and trench stability for natural, cut and fill slopes, geotechnical uncertainty, and geotechnical LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design).

It is critical to quantify the various properties of soil in order to predict how it will behave under field loading for the safe design of soil structures. Quantification of these properties is performed using standardized laboratory tests. This lab manual prepares readers to enter the field with a collection of the most common of these soil mechanics tests. The procedures for all of these tests are written in accordance with applicable American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards.

Vibro-compaction and vibro-stone columns are the two dynamic methods of soil improvement most commonly used worldwide. These methods have been developed over seventy years and are now in a position of unrivalled importance amongst modern foundation measures. The first works on granular soil by densification, and the second is used to displace and reinforce fine grained and cohesive soils by introducing inert material. This practical guide for professional geotechnical engineers outlines the development of vibratory deep compaction, describes the equipment used, sets out the methods and techniques and provides state of the art design principles and quality control procedures. It also identifies the practical limitations of the methods. Case studies from South East Asia and the Middle East are used to illustrate the methods and to demonstrate how they apply in real world conditions. The book concludes with some variations of the basic methods, evaluates the economic and environmental benefits of the methods and gives contractual guidance.
