    Design and Construction of Tunnels

    This work illustrates how the Analysis of Controlled Deformation in Rocks and Soils (ADECO-RS) is used in the design and the construction of tunnels.The ADECO-RS approach makes a clear distinction between the design and the construction stages and allows reliable forecasts of construction times and costs to be made. It uses the advance core (the core of ground ahead of the face) as a structural tool for the long and short term stabilisation of t

  • Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Well founded and reliable emission data are necessary to implement strategies to investigate and control air pollution caused by the transport and chemical transformation of air pollutants. This book contains a wealth of new information that enables environmental scientists and authorities dealing with air pollution to design methods for measuring and modelling emission rates related to specific pollution sources, and thus to generate improved ...

  • Modern Electrochemistry 2B

    Modern Electrochemistry 2B

    This long awaited and thoroughly updated version of the classic text (Plenum Press, 1970) explains the subject of electrochemistry in clear, straightforward language for undergraduates and mature scientists who want to understand solutions. Like its predecessor, the new text presents the electrochemistry of solutions at the molecular level. The Second Edition takes full advantage of the advances in microscopy, computing power, and ...

  • Numerical Simulation in Tunneling

    Numerical Simulation in Tunneling

    The planned construction of traffic routes through the European Alps represents a challenge for science and technology. During the past decades, Austria has gained a leading position in the field of tunnelling. This has been verified by many successful projects all over the world, which have been realised with the well-known "New Austrian Tunnelling Method”. However, further development and economic success of modern tunnelling methods, which ar

  • Seismic Monitoring in Mines

    Seismic Monitoring in Mines

    The capability of modern seismic systems to monitor incremental coseismic stress and strain within a rockmass makes the early detection of instabilities a real possibility. The collection and interpretation of real-time seismic data is therefore of extreme importance in both underground and open-cast mining as well as in tunnelling. This book brings together an international team of geophysicists and geotechnical engineers to describe the ...

  • The Encyclopedia of Applied Geology

    The Encyclopedia of Applied Geology

    The Encyclopedia of Applied Geology is an international compendium of engineering geology topics prepared by experts from many countries. The volume contains more than eighty main entries in alphabetical order, dealing with hydrology, rock structure monitoring and soil mechanics in addition to engineering geology. Special topics focus on earth science information and sources, electrokinetics, forensic geology, geocryology, nuclear plant siting, ...
