  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Handbook of Tropical Residual Soils Engineering

    Edited by Bujang B.K. Huat, David G. Toll, Arun Prasad

    Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material. They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity…
