Civil Engineering has recently seen enormous progress in the core field of the construction of deep foundations. This book is the result of the International Workshop on Recent Advances in Deep Foundations (IWDPF07), which was held in Yokosuka, Japan from the 1st to the 2nd of February, 2007. Topics under discussion in this book include recent research achievements and case histories; and current advances in the applied aspects of deep foundations, such as reliability-based design, field tests and experimental field work. The book also features the latest numerical simulation methods and theoretical findings. There are nine keynote lectures, focusing on foundation engineering in different parts of the world, and thirty-three state-of-the-art papers from eminent international experts. The techniques covered include sheet piles, piles, pile-ground improvement and ground improvement, while dynamic aspects and design are also discussed.. This book is intended for an international audience of researchers and professionals in soil and foundation engineering.
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer requires periodic assessments of available scientific, environmental, technical & economic information. This publication is one in a series of Technical Options Committee reports & assesses the situation of refrigeration, air conditioning & heat pumps in relation to the Protocol.
Broadens the recommendations published by Jardine and Chow in 1996. This volume provides procedures that can be applied by geotechnical engineers, supported by worked examples for sands and clays. It also offers guidance on application to a range of pile types, geotechnical profiles and loading conditions.
