  • Time-Dependency in Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering

    By Omer Aydan

    This book is concerned with time-dependency in rock mechanics and rock engineering, whose spectrum is very wide. While the term “time-dependency” involves time-dependent behavior/rate-dependent behavior of rocks in a conventional sense, this books attempts to cover the spectrum as much as possible…

  • Soil Liquefaction

    A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

    By Mike Jefferies, Ken Been

    A Rigorous and Definitive Guide to Soil Liquefaction Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness for a time—usually a few minutes or less—and which may then cause structural failure, financial loss, and even death. It can occur during earthquakes, from static loading…
