Geotechnical Monitoring Books

  • Field Instrumentation of Soil and Rock

    Nearly 30 papers feature the latest information on field instrumentation for soil and rockThree major areas addressed include: • Geotechnical Instrumentation of Landfills; • Instrumentation for Project Cost Management, • and Field Data Acquisitions and Data Management. Two papers address the geotechnical instrumentation aspects of the ...

  • Adjunct to C469 Test Method for Static Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson's Ratio of Concrete in Compression

    Lateral Extensometer (2 detailed drawings 24 by 19 in.) and Longitudinal Compressometer (2 detailed drawings 29 by 21 in. and 36 by 21 in.). This adjunct consists of technical drawings for assembling the ...

  • Recent Geodynamics, Georisk and Sustainabe Development in the Black Sea to Caspian Sea Region

    All papers were peer-reviewed. These contributions address regional geodynamics and geohazards, mitigation of the catastrophic impacts of extreme natural events on society, and how to raise the awareness of scientific as well as political decision makers in order to launch appropriate initiatives for the region in terms of disaster mitigation and ...

  • Global Geodetic Observing System

    With the provision of accurate reference frames and observations of changes in Earth's shape, gravity field and rotation, modern geodesy takes a fundamental role for improved understanding of geodynamics, geohazards, the global water cycle, global change, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, and it supports many societal applications that depend on ...

  • Geohazard-associated Geounits

    Globally there has been a marked increase in both the frequency and cost of natural disasters occurring due to geological, hydrological and meteorological causes. According to the United States National Academy of Sciences losses caused by natural disasters have quadrupled in the last twenty years. This book, conceived as a technical manual deals ...

  • Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences

    This book provides a world-wide perspective of submarine mass movements and their consequences. This has been made possible by assembling excellent contributions from active researchers, groups, or institutions, thus providing full coverage of the many scientific and engineering aspects of this type of marine and coastal geo-hazard. It covers ...

  • Surface Waves in Geomechanics: Direct and Inverse Modelling for Soils and Rocks

    The subject of this book is forward and inverse modelling of surface waves. Although the emphasis is placed in Rayleigh wave propagation in geomaterials, the theory is developed for rather general constitutive models spanning from one-component linear elasticity and viscoelasticity to multi-component systems and nonlinear continua. An attempt is ...

  • Computational Geomechanics

    Recent years have witnessed the development of computational geomechanics as an important branch of engineering. The use of modern computational techniques makes it possible to deal with many complex engineering problems, taking into account many of the typical properties of geotechnical materials (soil and rock), such as the coupled ...
