This manual is intended to provide a technical resource for geotechnical engineers responsible for planning and performing subsurface investigations so that project subsurface conditions can be... More > characterized effectively and risks attributed to ground conditions can be identified and addressed. The manual is organized to reflect an emphasis on interpretation of geotechnical parameters for design and construction. It describes important considerations for planning and scoping of geotechnical investigations; means and methods for classification of soil and rock based on index property measurements; identifying and characterizing problematic soil and rock types for design and construction; guidance for interpretation of soil and rock properties from field and laboratory measurements; interpretation of geotechnical design parameters from individual measurements; identification and characterization of geotechnical hazards; and lastly, guidance for documenting and reporting results from geotechnical investigations.< Less

This manual covers the latest methods and procedures to address the geotechnical issues in pavement design, construction and performance for new construction, reconstruction, and rehabilitation... More > projects. The manual includes details on geotechnical exploration and characterization of in place and constructed subgrades as well as unbound base/subbase materials. The influence and sensitivity of geotechnical inputs are reviewed with respect to the requirements in past and current AASHTO design guidelines and the mechanistic-empirical design approach developed under NCHRP 1-37A, including the three levels of design input quality. Design details for drainage features and base/subbase material requirements are covered along with the evaluation and selection of appropriate remediation measures for unsuitable subgrades. Geotechnical aspects in relation to construction, construction specifications, monitoring, and performance measurements are discussed.< Less

Geotechnical Engineering Notebook: Geotechnical Differing Site Conditions (Geotechnical Guideline No.15) By U.S. Department of Transportation & Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: $15.94
Prints in 3-5 business days
The 23 Federal Code of Regulations (CFR 635.109) contains policies, requirements, and procedures for standardized “changed conditions” clauses for Federal aid highway projects. In... More > summary, unless prohibited by State law, Part 635 requires that a “differing site condition” clause shall be made part of and incorporated into each highway project approved under Title 23. This guideline provides information on geotechnical aspects of differing site conditions, adequate site investigation, disclosure and presentation of subsurface information by highway agencies, and the use of such information in mitigating or resolving contractor claims of differing site conditions. Recommendations are provided for disclosure of factual, qualified and interpretive geotechnical information. The uses of geotechnical design summary reports are described and a typical report outline provided in the appendices.< Less

Volume 1881, David M. Potts (Geotechnics)---David Miller (Canadian politician) Print Wikipedia is a both a utilitarian visualization of the largest accumulation of human knowledge and a poetic... More > gesture towards the inhuman scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
Design and Construction of Continuous Flight Auger Piles (Geotechnical Engineering Circular #8) By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $49.95 $39.96 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This manual presents the state-of-the-practice for design and construction of continuous flight auger (CFA) piles, including those piles commonly referred to as augered cast-in-place (ACIP) piles,... More > drilled displacement piles, and screw piles. CFA pile types, materials, and construction equipment and procedures are discussed. A performance-based approach is presented to allow contractors greater freedom to compete in providing the most cost-effective and reliable foundation system, and a rigorous construction monitoring and testing program to verify the performance. Quality control (QC)/quality assurance (QA) procedures are discussed, and general requirements for a performance specification are given.< Less
Basics of Foundation Design By Bengt Fellenius
Paperback: List Price: $99.00 $89.10 | You Save: 10%
Prints in 3-5 business days
The “Red Book” presents a background to conventional foundation analysis and design. The text is not intended to replace the much more comprehensive ‘standard’ textbooks, but... More > rather to support and augment these in a few important areas, supplying methods applicable to practical cases handled daily by practising engineers and providing the basic soil mechanics background to those methods. It concentrates on the static design for stationary foundation conditions. Although the topic is far from exhaustively treated, it does intend to present most of the basic material needed for a practising engineer involved in routine geotechnical design, as well as provide the tools for an engineering student to approach and solve common geotechnical design problems.< Less
Pile Driving By Pile Buck By Don C. Warrington P.E.
eBook (ePub): $59.99
The definitive reference for driven piles. Nearly six years in the making, Pile Driving by Pile Buck is a comprehensive reference book on the history of pile driving and driven piles, the various... More > types of piles, the equipment used to install them, the design of driven pile foundations, the installation of driven piles and the capacity verification of driven piles. Not just another theoretical exercise, Pile Driving by Pile Buck gives practical procedures and equipment configurations for the successful installation of virtually any driven pile foundations. Included with the text are a wealth of photographs without equal in this type of publication; the photos alone are worth the price of the book, and help bring the reader "on site" to understand the whole process of pile driving--one of the oldest construction techniques known.< Less
