When finding another location, redesigning a structure, or removing troublesome ground at a project site are not practical options, prevailing ground conditions must be addressed. Improving the ground—modifying its existing physical properties to enable effective, economic, and safe construction—to achieve appropriate engineering performance is an increasingly successful approach. This third edition of Ground Improvement provides a comprehensive overview of the major ground improvement techniques in use worldwide today. Written by recognized experts who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to bear on their contributions, the chapters are fully updated with recent developments including advancements in equipment and methods since the last edition. The text provides an overview of the processes and the key geotechnical and design considerations as well as equipment needed for successful execution. The methods described are well illustrated with relevant case histories and include the following approaches: Densification using deep vibro techniques or dynamic compaction Consolidation employing deep fabricated drains and associated methods Injection techniques, such as permeation and jet grouting, soil fracture grouting, and compaction grouting New in-situ soil mixing processes, including trench-mixing TRD and panel-mixing CSM approaches The introductory chapter touches on the historical development, health and safety, greenhouse gas emissions, and two less common techniques: blasting and the only reversible process, ground freezing. This practical and established guide provides readers with a solid basis for understanding and further study of the most widely used processes for ground improvement. It is particularly relevant for civil and geotechnical engineers as well as contractors involved in piling and ground engineering of any kind. It would also be useful for advanced graduate and postgraduate civil engineering and geotechnical students.

Output in infrastructure is forecast to rise by 6.6% in 2013 & 7.6% in 2014, driven by Highways Agency’s capital budget funding, by rail and by electricity... Spon's Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book 2014 gives costs for both general and civil engineering works and highway works, and provides a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated in line with the latest CIJC wage agreement. Beyond prices, it can be used as a comprehensive work manual for the UK’s civil engineering, surveying and construction business. Use the access code inside the back cover of the book to get set up with internet access to this edition until the end of December 2014. We now provide SPON’S Online, a versatile and powerful online data viewing package, which replaces the estimating software and ebook of recent years. This 28th edition incorporates a comprehensive review throughout: Labour rates have increased at the beginning of the year and further increases are expected in 2014 – make sure you register for quarterly updates to keep up to date with wage increases! Pressure is being maintained on material costs with a slight fall in materials prices as some of the rail projects come on stream Structured to comply with CESMM3 and MMHW, the book includes prices and rates covering the key items that make a general civil or highway construction project – from gabions to gutters and painting to PVC pipework. In a time when it is essential to gain 'competitive advantage' in an increasingly congested market, this price book provides instant-access cost information and is a one-stop reference.

The increasing need to redevelop land in urban areas has led to major development in the field of ground improvement, a process that is continuing and expanding. Vibratory deep compaction and grouting techniques have also been increasingly applied to solving the problems of urban development, whether from tunnelling, excavation, building renovation or bearing capacity improvement and settlement reduction. The second edition of this well established book continues to provide an international overview of the major techniques in use. Comprehensively updated in line with recent developments, each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field. Ground Improvements is written for geotechnical and civil engineers, and for contractors working in grouting, ground improvement, piling and environmental engineering.

The aim of this book is to encourage students to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of soil mechanics. It builds a robust and adaptable framework of ideas to support and accommodate the more complex problems and analytical procedures that confront the practising geotechnical engineer. Soil Mechanics: Concepts and Applications covers the soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering topics typically included in university courses in civil engineering and related subjects. Physical rather than mathematical arguments are used in the core sections wherever possible. New features for the second edition include: an accompanying website containing the lecturers solutions manual; a revised chapter on soil strength and soil behaviour separating the basic and more advanced material to aid understanding; a major new section on shallow foundations subject to combined vertical, horizontal and moment loading; revisions to the material on retaining walls, foundations and filter design to account for new research findings and bring it into line with the design philosophy espoused by EC7. More than 50 worked examples including case histories Learning objectives, key points and example questions

ASQ’s Certified Quality Improvement Associate (CQIA) certification is designed to introduce the basics of quality to organizations and individuals not currently working within the field of quality. This book and the Body of Knowledge (BOK) it supports are intended to form a foundation for further study and application of proven quality principles and practices worldwide. The book follows the CQIA BoK in both content and sequence. The intent is that this book will serve as a guide to be used in preparation to take the CQIA examination given by ASQ. Each chapter stands alone, and the chapters may be read in any order. Some material reaching beyond the content of the BoK has been added. Supplemental reading suggestions are provided. An online, interactive sample exam and a paper-and-pencil sample can be found on the ASQ website (http://asq.org/cert/quality-improvement-associate/prepare).

Since the second edition of this book was published in 1996, planar transmission line technology has progressed considerably due to developments in ultrawideband (UWB) communications, imaging, and RFID applications. In addition, the simultaneous demands for compactness of wireless electronic devices while meeting improved performance requirements, necessitates increased use of computer-aided design, simulation, and analysis by microwave engineers. This book is written to help engineers successfully meet these challenges. Details include the development of governing equations, basis functions, Green’s function and typical results. More than 1200 equations supplement the text. Special attention is given to the use of simulation software in the design of complex devices and understanding the connection between data collected from simulation software and the actual design process. The book is primarily intended for microwave design engineers and R&D specialists who need to employ planar transmission lines in designing distributed circuits and antenna systems for a wide range of wireless applications. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in electronics and telecommunication engineering will also welcome this addition to your library.
