Publishing your research in an international journal is key to your success in academia. This guide is based on a study of over 1000 manuscripts and reviewers' reports revealing why papers written by non-native researchers are often rejected due to problems with English usage and poor structure and content.

With easy-to-follow rules and tips, and examples taken from published and unpublished papers, you will learn how to: prepare and structure a manuscript + increase readability and reduce the number of mistakes you make in English by writing concisely, with no redundancy and no ambiguity + write a title and an abstract that will attract attention and be read + decide what to include in the various parts of the paper (Introduction, Methodology, Discussion etc) + highlight your claims and contribution + avoid plagiarism + discuss the limitations of your research + choose the correct tenses and style + satisfy the requirements of editors and reviewers.

This new edition contains over 40% new material, including two new chapters, stimulating factoids, and discussion points both for self-study and in-class use. This edition has two completely new chapters covering machine translation and using AI tools (e.g. chatbots, paraphrasers, editing tools) to improve and correct the English of a text.

This textbook provides a coherent and structured overview of fluid mechanics, a discipline concerned with many natural phenomena and at the very heart of the most diversified industrial applications and human activities. The balance between phenomenological analysis, physical conceptualization and mathematical formulation serve both as a unifying educational marker and as a methodological guide to the three parts of the work. The thermo-mechanical motion equations of a homogeneous single-phase fluid are established, from which flow models (perfect fluid, viscous) and motion classes (isovolume, barotropic, irrotational, etc.) are derived. Incompressible, potential flows and compressible flows, both in an isentropic evolution and shock, of an ideal inviscid fluid are addressed in the second part. The viscous fluid is the subject of the last one, with the creeping motion regime and the laminar, dynamic and thermal boundary layer. Historical perspectives are included whenever they enrich the understanding of modern concepts. Many examples, chosen for their pedagogical relevance, are dealt with in exercises.

The book is intended as a teaching tool for undergraduate students, wishing to acquire a first command of fluid mechanics, as well as graduates in advanced courses and engineers in other fields, concerned with completing what is sometimes a scattered body of knowledge.

While there are many textbooks on the market that cover geotechnical engineering basics, Geotechnical Engineering is unique in that it is the only textbook available that is rooted within the three phase unsaturated soil mechanics framework. Written by world-renowned, award-winning geotechnical engineering expert Dr. Jean-Louis Briaud, this Second Edition offers the most comprehensive coverage of geotechnical engineering topics on the market, from theory to real-world application.

In addition to many updates and revisions, a major chapter has been added, covering 22 geo-engineering case histories. They are: Washington Monument (shallow mat foundation) + Rissa Landslide (slope stability) + Seattle 46 M-High MSE Wall (retaining wall) + The New Orleans Charity Hospital Foundation (deep foundation) + The Eurotunnel Linking France and England (tunnel) + The Teton Dam (earth dam erosion) + The Woodrow Wilson Bridge (bridge scour) + San Jacinto Monument (shallow mat foundation) + Pointe du Hoc Cliffs (rock erosion) + The Tower of PISA (shallow foundation) + The Transcona Silo (shallow foundation) + The Saint John River Bridge Abutment (slope stability) + Foundation of Briaud’s House (shrink swell soils) + The Eiffel Tower (deep foundation) + St. Isaac Cathedral (mat foundation) + National Geotechnical Experimentation Sites at Texas A&M University (full scale infrastructure tests) + The 827 M-High Burj Khalifa Tower Foundation (combined pile raft foundation) + New Orleans Levees and Katrina Hurricane (overtopping erosion) + Three Gorges Dam (concrete dam) + The Kansai International Airport (earth fill in the sea) + The Panama Canal (excavated slopes) + The Nice Airport Slope Failure (slope stability).

This book provides a review of problems during design and construction on problematic soils. Design methods, site investigation, construction and analysis of the various improvement methods available are explained and discussed. Various regions may have different soils with geotechnical problems that differ from those faced in other regions. For example, in Southeast Asia, the common geotechnical problems are those associated with construction on soft clays and organic soils, while in the arid region of the Middle East, problems are generally associated with the desert soils. In the US, the problems are associated with organic soils, expansive and collapsing soils, and shale. Laterite and lateritic soils are especially problematic in Mexico. Similarly, in Europe, for example, the geotechnical problems are associated with loess (France), and organic soil (Germany). A detailed description of various methods of ground improvement has been provided in 11 chapters. Each chapter deals not only with a description of the method but also focuses on region-specific ground problems and suitable ground improvement techniques. Case studies have also been included. One general chapter is dedicated to site investigation, instrumentation, assessment and control. This book will be of value to students and professionals in the fields of civil and geotechnical engineering, as well as to soil scientists and engineering geologists.
