This book presents mainly the geotechnical details of geomaterials (soils and rocks) found in all the 36 states and union territories of India. There are 37 chapters in this book. Chapter 1 provides an overview of geomaterials, focusing on their engineering properties as determined based on the project site investigations and laboratory/field tests; this will help readers understand the technical details explained throughout the book, with each chapter dealing with geomaterials of one state/union territory only.

Each chapter, contributed by a team of authors, follows a common template with the following sections: introduction, major types of soils and rocks, properties of soils and rocks, use of soils and rocks as construction materials, foundation and other geotechnical structures, other geomaterials, natural hazards, case studies and field tests, geoenvironmental impact on soils and rocks, concluding remarks and references. All the chapters cover highly practical information and technical data for application in ground infrastructure projects, including foundations of structures (buildings, towers, tanks, machines and so on), highway, railway and airport pavements, embankments, retaining structures/walls, dams, reservoirs, canals and ponds, and landfills and tunnels. These details are also highly useful for professionals dealing with mining, oil and gas projects and agricultural and aquacultural engineering projects. Although this book covers the Indian ground characteristics, the information provided can be helpful in some suitable forms to the professionals of other countries having similar ground conditions and applications.

Geotechnical engineering is now a fundamental component of construction projects. The first volume of this book therefore paves the way for the development of a lasting partnership between soil and foundations. Applied Geotechnics for Construction Projects 1 first defines, identifies and classifies soils, exploring their complexities and weaknesses, and then outlines the basic principles of stresses and strains that establish and develop within soils. The third chapter of the book introduces and develops methods of soil investigation in order to experimentally determine the geotechnical parameters that are useful in the design stage of construction projects.

Each chapter of this first volume is illustrated with photographs of example construction sites and concludes with concrete examples of real projects. The result is a combination of geotechnical expertise and lessons learned from experience, both of which are highly valuable in the field of applied geotechnics for construction projects.

This book provides a comprehensive review of drilling technologies in the polar regions, from the portable drilling equipment for shallow sampling and coring, to heavy drilling equipment for deep onshore and offshore drilling. Particular attention is given to safe drilling methods in permafrost. In recent years, interest in drilling in the polar regions has increased under the pressure of the geopolitical “rush” and the undiscovered resource potential. In addition, borehole monitoring of permafrost thermal states is urgently needed to obtain evidence of climate change. The book focuses on the latest drilling technologies but also discusses the historical development of sampling, and drilling tools and devices, over the last 60–70 years providing valuable insights into a way forward and future possibilities.

Through four previous editions of Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB, the author presented a wide variety of topics needed by today's engineers. The fifth edition of that book, available now, has been broken into two parts: topics currently needed in mathematics courses and a new stand-alone volume presenting topics not often included in these courses and consequently unknown to engineering students and many professionals. The overall structure of this new book consists of two parts: transform methods and random processes. Built upon a foundation of applied complex variables, the first part covers advanced transform methods, as well as z-transforms and Hilbert transforms--transforms of particular interest to systems, communication, and electrical engineers. This portion concludes with Green's function, a powerful method of analyzing systems.

The second portion presents random processes--processes that more accurately model physical and biological engineering. Of particular interest is the inclusion of stochastic calculus. The author continues to offer a wealth of examples and applications from the scientific and engineering literature, a highlight of his previous books. As before, theory is presented first, then examples, and then drill problems. Answers are given in the back of the book. This book is all about the future: The purpose of this book is not only to educate the present generation of engineers but also the next. The main strength is the text is written from an engineering perspective. The majority of my students are engineers. The physical examples are related to problems of interest to the engineering students.

Improving Water Quality Through Contaminant Source Trackdown Studiesdiscusses the trackdown approaches that help to avoid costly mistakes that miss key contaminant sources or inaccurately assess their relative contributions to problems. This book brings together information that is currently dispersed in the academic literature and within files of agencies and consultants into one valuable resource. This book provides water managers and other water professionals with the tools they need to assess and track key sources of contamination in ground and surface water resources, as well as effluent distribution systems. Specific examples and case studies that focus on contaminants that frequently impair water quality are included to provide readers with real world examples on how to conduct contaminant trackdown studies. It does not cover mathematical model development techniques in detail but lists model types and resources where more information on these techniques can be obtained. Improving Water Quality Through Contaminant Source Trackdown Studies provides: an in-depth examination of problems that can be approached using contaminant source trackdown studies. methods for identifying and tracking critical point and nonpoint, surface and ground water sources of contaminants such as such as wastewater treatment plants, agricultural and urban runoff, and contaminated sediments. practical and realistic tools for saving time and money by using contaminant source trackdown studies to tackle impaired water scenarios ranging from small-scale systems, such as lakes, to complex watersheds and municipal distribution systems. international examples and case studies with real-world experience in conducting a contaminant trackdown study. The book is a valuable resource for water professionals in environmental science, chemistry, biology, and engineering.
