     Geotechnics of Soft Soils: Focus on Ground Improvement: Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop held in Glasgow, Scotland, 3 - 5 September 2008
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Author(s):

Natural soft soils are very complex materials. As construction activities increasingly take place in poor ground conditions, ground improvement is often required. However, design practices for ground improvement were for long at best crude and conservative, and at worst unsafe. Although new construction and field observation techniques have been developed to ensure that geotechnical structures such as embankments, tunnels and deep excavations can be built safely under these difficult conditions, design is still predominantly based on empirical rules and simplifying assumptions.

Since 2000 increased computer power has made systematic numerical studies utilising the 3D finite element method more and more possible. This enabled the investigation of complex soil-structure interaction mechanisms associated with ground improvement problems. The EC-funded Research Training Network �??Soft Clay Modelling for Engineering Practice�(SCMEP), was set up to develop improved constitutive and numerical models to assist in geotechnical design on soft clays, and made significant advances in theory backed up with substantial experimental programmes (2000-2004). The EC-funded Marie Curie Research Training Network AMGISS (Advanced Modelling of Ground Improvement on Soft Soils) continued the research by the SCMEP network, focussing on modelling ground improvement systems. The aim of the AMGISS network is to develop advanced numerical modelling techniques for analysing the coupled hydro-mechanical behaviour of ground improvement systems on soft soils utilising advanced constitutive modelling, physical modelling and 2D, enhanced 2D and 3D numerical modelling techniques.

The motivation of the 2nd International Workshop on Geotechnics of Soft Soils, organised by the AMGISS network (3-5 September 2008, Glasgow, Scotland), was to bring together practitioners and academics to discuss recent developments in soft soil modelling, focussing on ground improvement. This volume is a collection of papers from the workshop, and discusses the state-of-the-art in soft soil modelling and design, with particular emphasis on ground improvement applications, involving contibutions both from academia and industry. The topics included cover: Modelling (constitutive modelling, numerical modelling, and physical modelling), Design and Application (focusing mainly on embankments and foundations), and Ground Improvement (preloading and consolidation methods, column methods, piles and micropiles, and other ground improvement methods).

Geotechnics of Soft Soils - Focus on Ground Improvement will prove to be invaluable to research students, academics and practitioners, working in geotechnical design on soft soils.

     Advances in Transportation Geotechnics: Proceedings of the International Conference held in Nottingham, UK, 25-27 August 2008
Publisher: CRC Press
Author(s):

Highways provide the arteries of modern society. The interaction of road, rail and other transport infrastructure with the ground is unusually intimate, and thus needs to be well-understood to provide economic and reliable infrastructure for society. Challenges include not only the design of new infrastructure (often on problematic ground), but increasingly the management and maintenance of aging assets in the face of issues such as climate change.

This book is the written record of the first International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, held in Nottingham, UK, in 2008. It comprises about 100 papers from a global selection of researchers and practitioners on:

? Slope instability, stabilisation, and asset management;

? Construction on soft ground;

? Interaction with structures and geogrid reinforced soil;

? Effect of climate change and vegetation;

? Highways, pavements and subgrade;

? Railway geotechnics;

? Soil improvement;

? Characterisation and recycling of geomaterials.

A further part of this collection contains papers on unbound aggregate materials as used in pavement construction and drainage. They formed the ?Unbound Aggregates in Roads (UNBAR7)? theme of the conference which followed on from the previous symposia of that title, also held in Nottingham, UK, most recently in 2004. The volume will be of interest to professionals and academics in geotechnical, highway, railway and general civil engineering.

     Design and Construction of Rammed Aggregate Pier in Soil Improvement: Stone Column, Rammed Aggregate Pier, Soil Improvement (Volume 1)
Publisher: CreateSpace
Author(s): Hamed Niroumand

Stone columns have been used since the 1950's as a technique for soil improvement such as cohesive soils and silty cohesion less soils. Stone column?s applications includes (1) stabilizing the foundation soils to support embankments, approach fills and reconstruction work on weak cohesive soils, (2) supporting retaining structures (including Reinforced Earth), bridge bent and abutment structures on slightly marginal soft to stiff clays and loose silty sands, (3) landslide stabilization and (4) reducing liquefaction potential of clean sands. Also, stone columns under proper conditions may be greatly decrease the time required for primary consolidation. The stone column technique of ground behavior has proven successful in (1) improving slope stability of both embankments and natural slopes, (2) increasing bearing capacity, (3) reducing total and differential settlements, (4) reducing the liquefaction potential of sands and (5) increasing the time rate of settlement. Stone column construction involves the partial replacement of unsuitable subsurface soils with a compacted vertical column of stone that usually completely penetrates the weak strata. When jetting water is used the process is named vibro-replacement and when used without jetting water in partially saturated soils such as old rubble fill, the process is known as vibro-displacement. This book can be help to engineers and researchers on stone columns. I would also like to thank my parents and my wife. The author is grateful to the engineers for their efforts in preparing the excellent works included in the world. The author has helped provide to the profession significant information on which to base current decisions on soil improvement and on which to build for future works.

     Landslides and Avalanches. Norway 2005: Proceedings of the 11th International Conference and Field Trip on Landslides, Norway, September 2005
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Author(s):

The Proceedings of the 11th International Conference and Field Trip on Landslides deals with landslides in soil and rock as well as snow and slush avalanches. It contains analyses, experimental investigations and stability evaluation of landslides in soil. Case records with detailed surveys illustrate the topographic conditions and the movements that take place. Numerous case records from rock slides give new information about the extent of such slides and the geological conditions where such slides occur. The sliding mechanism is described and modelled and there is consideration of the climatic conditions which have a significant effect on the triggering of such slides. Several papers deal with the monitoring of snow and slush avalanches. Additional studies include models and experiments that contribute to an understanding of what happens in the field. Authors and co-authors from 18 countries contributed to this interesting collection of scientific work. The publication is an important addition to what has already been written on these topics and�is a valuable reference for a better understanding of landslides and avalanches.

     Nachweis der Gebrauchstauglichkeit f�1/4r Baugrubensicherungen (German Edition)
Publisher: GRIN Verlag
Author(s): Michael Riemer

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Ingenieurwissenschaften - Bauingenieurwesen, Note: 1,7, Hochschule für Technik, Wirtschaft und Kultur Leipzig, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Kurzfassung Beengte Verhältnisse in Städten, tiefe Nutzung von Grundstücken und immer grö�?ere Dimensionierung von Bauwerken machen den Einsatz von Baugrubenverbauten notwendig. Im Hinblick auf die Standsicherheit und Gebrauchstauglichkeit der Baugruben und aller benachbarten Bauwerke während aller Bauzustände haben Verformungsprognosen damit eine gro�?e Bedeutung erlangt. Für Verformungsberechnungen im Sinne des Nachweises der Gebraustauglichkeit stehen dem Geotechnikingenieur Berechnungsansätze der Stabstatik oder Numerische Verfahren zu Verfügung. Die drei gebräuchlichsten Verfahren, das klassische Trägermodell mit unnachgiebiger Stützung, das erweiterte Träger-modell mit gebettetem Wandfu�? (Bettungsmodulverfahren) und die Finite-Elemente-Methode (Hardening-Soil Modell) sollen in der vorliegenden Arbeit näher erläutert und miteinander verglichen werden. Dazu werden anhand einer einfach gestützten Baugrubenwand die Berechnungsergebnisse aus ausführlichen Handrechnungen sowie den Grundbauprogrammen GGU-Retain V.5 und PLAXIS V.8 vorgestellt. Abstract The cramped situation in cities, the deep using of sites and growing up of the dimension of buildings are the reasons for necessity of deep excavations. In view for the stability and serviceability of the building pit sheeting and all adjacent constructions the importance of prediction of deformations during all building phases has increased. The Geotechnical Engineer has the choice between classical procedures or numerical methods to determine deformations for proving the Serviceability Limit State. The three common methods, the classical beam model with rigid supports, the configure beam model with earth support proposing an elastic subgrade reaction and the Finite-Elemente-Methode (using with Hardening Soil Model) should be explained a
