  • Engineering of Glacial Deposits

    By Barry G. Clarke

    At some time 30% of the world’s land mass was covered by glaciers leaving substantial deposits of glacial soils under major conurbations in Europe, North and South America, New Zealand, Europe and Russia. For instance, 60% of the UK has been affected, leaving significant glacial deposits under…

  • Sustainable Slope Stabilization using Recycled Plastic Pins

    By Sahadat Hossain, Sadik Khan, Golam Kibria

    Landslides and slope failure are common in the US and rest of the world. The landslides cause significant damage to infrastructure and millions of dollars are required each year to fix the slope. A sustainable and cost-effective option to stabilize the slope can have significant benefits, as it…

  • Urban Expansion, Land Cover and Soil Ecosystem Services

    Edited by Ciro Gardi

    More than half of the world population now lives in cities, and urban expansion continues as rural people move to cities. This results in the loss of land for other purposes, particularly soil for agriculture and drainage. This book presents a review of current knowledge of the extension and…

  • Dynamical Systems-Based Soil Mechanics

    By Paul Joseph

    This book is a short yet rigorous course on a new paradigm in soil mechanics, one that holds that soil deformation occurs as a simple friction-based Poisson process in which soil particles move to their final position at random shear strains. It originates from work by Casagrande’s soil mechanics…

  • The Pneumatic Flow Mixing Method

    Edited by Masaki Kitazume

    The pneumatic flow mixing method was developed to stabilize dredged soil and surplus soil for promoting their beneficial use in 1999. The pneumatic flow mixing method is a new type of the ex-situ cement stabilization techniques, in which dredged soil and surplus soil is mixed with a relatively…
