Baltic Piling

Edited By M. Mets, R. Raudsepp Copyright 2013

    'Baltic Piling' contains the proceedings of the ‘Baltic Piling Days 2012’ (Tallinn, Estonia, 3-5 September 2012). The book includes contributions on current issues in pile foundation engineering:

    - Interaction of pile and grillage;

    - Formation of pile bearing capacity

    - Settlements of piles

    - Pile foundation under historical buildings

    - Thermopiles, and

    - Interaction of georgid and pile.

    'Baltic Piling' will be of interest to engineers, academics and students interested in pile foundation engineering and related disciplines.
