Symmetrical Anchor Plates in Soil Mechanic By Hamed Niroumand
Hardcover: $75.00
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Soil anchors are primarily designed and constructed to resist outwardly-directed loads imposed on the foundation of a structure. These outwardly – directed loads are transmitted to the soil at... More > a greater depth by the soil anchors. Buried anchors have been used for thousands of years to stabilize structures. In general at the present time, anchors placed in soil can be derived into six basic categories: anchor plates, direct embedment anchors, helical anchors, grouted anchors, anchor piles, drilled shafts and soil hook systems. The new form of soil anchor used for resisting vertically directed uplifting loads is Soil Hook System (SHS) that can be installed without excavating and grout to the required depth in the ground.< Less
Frozen Soils By Dr. Hamdy Youssef, Ph.D., P.Eng.
eBook (PDF): $42.59
Download immediately.
(1 Ratings)
Due to the rapid increase of engineering developments in cold regions, and the utilization of ground freezing techniques for civil and mining engineering projects worldwide, there is a need for... More > knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of frozen soils and hence the need of laboratory testing manual. The book presents detailed description of samples preparations of frozen soils for triaxial and compressibility tests. In addition, the testing procedures and data processing are presented for the following types of tests: 1. Triaxial compression; strain- rate controlled test, 2. Triaxial (and uniaxial) stress- relaxation tests with constant volume, and 3. Compressibility tests. Extensive experimental results are presented as numerical and graphics output of the author’s developed computer program FROZENSOIL.1. The book is written as a testing manual and is a mild stone contribution towards developing comprhensive standards for laboratory testing of frozen soils.< Less

This manual is the reference text used for the FHWA NHI courses No. 132042 and 132043 on Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes and reflects current practice for the design,... More > construction and monitoring of these structures. This manual was prepared to enable the engineer to identify and evaluate potential applications of MSE walls and RSS as an alternative to other construction methods and as a means to solve construction problems. The scope is sufficiently broad to be of value for specifications specialists, construction and contracting personnel responsible for construction inspection, development of material specifications and contracting methods. With the aid of this text, the engineer should be able to properly select, design, specify, monitor and contract for the construction of MSE walls and RSS embankments.< Less

This manual emphasizes the soils engineering aspects of road and airfield construction. The references give detailed information on other soils engineering topics that are discussed in general terms.... More > It also provides a discussion of the formation and characteristics of soil using the Unified System, and also information on AASHTO and the UDSA systems as well. It describes the compaction of soils and quality control, settlement and shearing resistance of soils, the movement of water through soils, frost action, and the bearing capacity of soils that serve as foundations, slopes, embankments, dikes, dams, and earth-retaining structures. This manual also describes the geologic factors that affect the properties and occurrences of natural mineral/soil construction materials used to build dams, tunnels, roads, airfields, and bridges. Finally, it has an excellent treatment of basic geology as it relates to soil mechanics, a subject not well covered in most soils texts.< Less
