"This introductory course on soil mechanics presents the key concepts of stress, stiffness, seepage, consolidation, and strength within a one-dimensional framework. - Consideration of the mechanical behaviour of soils requires us to consider density alongside stresses, thus permitting the unification of deformation and strength characteristics. Soils are described in a way which can be integrated with concurrent teaching of the properties of other engineering materials. - The book includes a model of the shearing of soil and some examples of soil-structure interaction which are capable of theoretical analysis using one-dimensional governing equations. The text contains many worked examples, and exercises are given for private study at the end of all chapters. - Some suggestions for laboratory demonstrations that could accompany such an introductory course are sprinkled through the book."--BOOK JACKET.

The world’s fresh water supplies are dwindling rapidly—even wastewater is now considered an asset. By 2025, most of the world's population will be facing serious water stresses and shortages. Aquananotechnology: Global Prospects breaks new ground with its informative and innovative introduction of the application of nanotechnology to the remediation of contaminated water for drinking and industrial use. It provides a comprehensive overview, from a global perspective, of the latest research and developments in the use of nanotechnology for water purification and desalination methods. The book also covers approaches to remediation such as high surface area nanoscale media for adsorption of toxic species, UV treatment of pathogens, and regeneration of saturated media with applications in municipal water supplies, produced water from fracking, ballast water, and more. It also discusses membranes, desalination, sensing, engineered polymers, magnetic nanomaterials, electrospun nanofibers, photocatalysis, endocrine disruptors, and Al13 clusters. It explores physics-based phenomena such as subcritical water and cavitation-induced sonoluminescence, and fog harvesting. With contributions from experts in developed and developing countries, including those with severe contamination, such as China, India, and Pakistan, the book’s content spans a wide range of the subject areas that fall under the aquananotechnology banner, either squarely or tangentially. The book strongly emphasizes sorption media, with broad application to a myriad of contaminants—both geogenic and anthropogenic—keeping in mind that it is not enough for water to be potable, it must also be palatable.

One of the best-known and most respected books on geotechnical engineering, this updated version features expanded coverage of vibration problems, mechanics of drainage, passive earth pressure and consolidation. In the years since publication of the past editions there has been a proliferation of soil mechanics research, much of it irrelevant to engineering practice. It is the aim of the authors to bring order out of this confusion.

A logical, integrated and comprehensive coverage of both introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics in an easy-to-understand style. Emphasis is placed on presenting fundamental behaviour before more advanced topics are introduced. The use of S.I. units throughout, and frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers, make the contents universally applicable. Written with the university student in mind and packed full of pedagogical features, this book provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of both introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics. It includes: worked examples to elucidate the technical content and facilitate self-learning a convenient structure (the book is divided into sections), enabling it to be used throughout second, third and fourth year undergraduate courses universally applicable contents through the use of SI units throughout, frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers new and advanced topics that extend beyond those in standard undergraduate courses. The perfect textbook for a range of courses on soils mechanics and also a very valuable resource for practising professional engineers.

Instead of fixating on formulae, Soil Mechanics: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition focuses on the fundamentals. This book describes the mechanical behaviour of soils as it relates to the practice of geotechnical engineering. It covers both principles and design, avoids complex mathematics whenever possible, and uses simple methods and ideas to build a framework to support and accommodate more complex problems and analysis. The third edition includes new material on site investigation, stress-dilatancy, cyclic loading, non-linear soil behaviour, unsaturated soils, pile stabilization of slopes, soil/wall stiffness and shallow foundations. Other key features of the Third Edition: • Makes extensive reference to real case studies to illustrate the concepts described • Focuses on modern soil mechanics principles, informed by relevant research • Presents more than 60 worked examples • Provides learning objectives, key points, and self-assessment and learning questions for each chapter • Includes an accompanying solutions manual for lecturers This book serves as a resource for undergraduates in civil engineering and as a reference for practising geotechnical engineers.
