This book deals with the soil mechanics aspects of the design of waterfront retaining structures built to withstand the effects of earthquake loadings. It addresses the stability and movement of... More > gravity retaining walls and anchored sheet pile walls, and the dynamic forces against the walls of drydocks and U-frame locks. It also contains one of the most complete descriptions of lateral earth pressure theory available anywhere. The effects of wall displacements, submergence, liquefaction potential, and excess pore water pressures, as well as inertial and hydrodynamic forces, are incorporated in the design procedures. Several new computational procedures are described in this report.< Less

Micropile Design and Construction Guidelines: Implementation Manual By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $49.95 $44.96 You Save: 10%
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The use of micropiles has grown significantly since their conception in the 1950s, and in particular since the mid-1980s. Micropiles have been used mainly as elements for foundation support to resist... More > static and seismic loading conditions and less frequently as in-situ reinforcements for slope and excavation stability. Many of these applications are suitable for transportation structures. Implementation of micropile technology on U.S. transportation projects has been hindered by lack of practical design and construction guidelines. This manual is intended as a "practitioner-oriented" document containing sufficient information on micropile design, construction specifications, inspection and testing procedures, cost data, and contracting methods to facilitate and speed the implementation and cost effective use of micropiles on United States transportation projects.< Less
Soil Mechanics Vol.1 By Pile Buck
Paperback: $39.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
This excellent handbook combines four technical manuals covering Site Investigations, Laboratory Testing of Soils and basic Soils Engineering applicable to the Planning, Design and Construction of... More > Pile Foundations and other major Civil Structures. Our manual reviews the various methods of conducting site investigations and laboratory and field testing, preliminary to project design. Covering the basics of soils identification procedures and goes on to settlement behavior, seepage, slope stability and other important subjects. Detailing some more difficult technical subjects including seismic activity and vibrations to some of the modern solutions for soils stabilization such as vibro-flotation and cement or chemical grouting methods.< Less
