Document Title Category Description
Geotechnical Site Exploration in the Year 2012 and Beyond, Paul W. Mayne
A must prior to all geotechnical projects, Determine geostratigraphy for site development, Information for construction and foundation selection, Collect geotechnical data for parameter evaluation, Input to analytical models and numerical FEM, Minimize surprises during construction, Mitigate potenti
Theory of Slope Stability - Landslide
In the lecture part of this course we will discuss a variety of methods of analysis of slope stability and instability.
Correlations of Soil and Rock Properties in Geotechnical Engineering, Jay...
Geotechnical engineering has grown rapidly in the past half century with the contribution from academics, researchers and practising professionals. It is still considered a combination of art and science with research and observations in the field refining and improving geotechnical design.
Open Pit Geotechnical Analysis and Design Training Course
This course is aimed at professionals in technical and management positions related to mining hydrogeology, mine dewatering, environmental management and mine water management.
Earthquakes
Earthquakes are vibrations caused by earth movements at plate boundaries and at major fault lines (cracks in the earth’s surface). They can occur at all four major plate boundaries but the most severe earthquakes are normally found at conservative and destructive plate boundaries.
Geotechnical Engineering, Renato Lancellotta
This book is about the mechanics of soils and structures interacting with soils. It has been primarily designed as a classroom teaching book, but it also covers more advanced aspects, usually included in upper level courses on civil and geotechnical engineering.
Essence of Geotechnical Engineering, John Burland
Design of Offshore Wind Turbine Support Structures, Christian LeBlanc
Breaking the dependence on fossil fuels offers many opportunities for strengthened competitiveness, technological development and progress.
Geotechnical Risk in Rock Tunnels
The theme of Geotechnical Risk in Rock Tunnels is certainly challenging and absolutely actual. As the number, length and depth reached by the new tunnels being designed and constructed through out the world increases, so do the difficulties and risks involved.
GIS Based Housing Relocation Project
This study was conducted to assess whether the residential and buildings which already built at the study area are susceptible to landslides or not. Based on the Landslide Susceptibility Map, can be seen that many residential areas are located in landslide-prone areas and spreaded in all villages.
Geotechnical Centrifuge Technology, R.N. Taylor
Centrifuge testing concerns the study of geotechnical events using small scale models subjected to acceleration fields of magnitude many times Earth’s gravity.
Design of Offshore Wind Turbine Support Structures, Bakmar, Christian LeBlanc
Breaking the dependence on fossil fuels offers many opportunities for strengthened competitiveness, technological development and progress.
Geology and Petroleum Resources of Tennessee and the Use of Fracking as a...
Marine plants (diatoms?)—accumulation in an anoxic environment. Rapid burial so the organic matter is not oxidized. Conversion to hydrocarbons requires heat (the “kitchen”). Oil has to be trapped once it moves so it remains anoxic. Trap cannot be breached through time—requires an efficient seal.
Geotechnical Aspects of Deep Excavation
Fundamental to deep excavations is Excavation with Lateral Support (ELS) and to this is coupled ground movement of which disturbance of nearby properties is a general concern and base heave within the excavation can adversely affect temporary works and piling.
Earth Pressure and Earth-Retaining Structures, Chris R.I. Clayton, Rick I....
This book is about the calculation or estimation of the pressures that soil— or more often, soil and water—can apply to retaining structures.
Geotechnical Engineering Design Checklists
What does ODOT want/expect, Process & design guidance, Reduce inefficiencies & oversights, Provide consistency across ODOT designs.
Theoretical Foundation Engineering, B.M Das
Theoretical Foundation Engineering is divided into five major chapters : Lateral Earth Pressure, Sheet Pile Walls, Bearing Capacity of Anchor Slabs and Helical Anchors, Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Shallow Foundations and Slope Stability.
Foundations on Rock, Duncan C.Wyllie
Foundations on Rock has been written to fill an apparent gap in the geotechnical engineering literature. Although there is wide experience and expertise in the design and construction of rock foundations, this has not, to date, been collected in one volume.
Geotechnical Investigation Methods - A Field Guide for Geotechnical Engineers,...
Geotechnical engineering analyses and evaluations are valid only when based on properties truly representing all of the natural materials that may influence the works. Properties of some materials are best measured in the laboratory, while others must be field tested.
Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Dr. Deepankar Choudhury
Seismogram is visual record of arrival time and magnitude of shaking associated with seismic wave. Analysis of seismogram allows measurement of size of earthquake. Richter scale measures the magnitude of an earthquake, based on seismogram independent of intensity.
