  • Cavity Expansion Methods in Geomechanics

    Cavity expansion theory is a simple theory that has found many applications in geotechnical engineering. In particular, it has been used widely to analyse problems relating to deep foundations, in-situ testing, underground excavation and tunnelling, and wellbore instability. Although much research has been carried out in this field, all the ...

  • Late Quaternary Environmental Change in North-west Europe

    Holywell Coombe, an embayment in the chalk scarp overlooking Folkestone, Kent, was designated a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1985 because it contains richly fossiliferous Late Quaternary sediments providing a unique archive of the last 13,000 years. The construction of the Channel Tunnel across the Holywell Coombe SSSI ...

  • 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 ...

  • Maine to Greenland: Exploring the Maritime Far Northeast

    Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world's great geographic regions: the Maritime Far Northeast. For more than three decades, William W. Fitzhugh and Wilfred E. Richard have explored the Northeast’s Atlantic corridor and its fascinating history, habitat, and culture. The authors’ powerful personal essays and ...

  • Construction Trenching & Shoring (Video)

    Deepen your knowledge on shoring and trenching safety. OSHA estimates that around 90 deaths and thousands of injuries will occur every year because basic trenching and shoring safety guidelines will be neglected. Don't cave in to loose safety standards. Prevent casualties with strict and practical safeguards covered in this program. Evaluating an ...

  • Seriation, Stratigraphy, and Index Fossils

    It is difficult for today's students of archaeology to imagine an era when chronometric dating methods were unavailable. However, even a casual perusal of the large body of literature that arose during the first half of the twentieth century reveals a battery of clever methods used to determine the relative ages of archaeological phenomena, ...

  • The Archaeologist´s Manual for Conservation

    'This manual is designed to take the mysticism out of archaeological artifact conservation and act as both reference and guide. It is intended as a tool to assist archaeologists in stabilizing a majority of the artifacts they excavate, or those already in storage. These stabilized archaeological collections will be preserved into the future, ...

  • Rock Mechanics

    Although Rock Mechanics addresses many of the rock mechanics issues which arise in underground mining engineering, it is not a text exclusively for mining applications. It consists of five categories of topics on the science and practice of rock engineering: basic engineering principles relevant to rock mechanics; mechanical properties of rock and ...

  • Sealing of Boreholes and Underground Excavations in Rock

    This reference presents the state-of-the-art in experimental research, data analysis and engineering applications of the sealing of boreholes. Some aspects are generalized to address the sealing of underground openings in rock, and the book summarizes the mechanical and hydraulic performance of borehole seals. ...

  • Early Modern Humans at the Moravian Gate - The Mladec Caves and their Remains

    The Upper Paleolithic fossils of the Mladec caves, South Moravia, excavated at the end of the 19th century, hold a key position in the current discussion on modern human emergence within Europe and the fate of the Neanderthals. Although undoubtedly early modern humans - recently radio carbon dated to 31.000 years BP - their morphological ...
