2021 Seismic Performance Analysis of Concrete Gravity Dams Book by Gaohui Wang, Sherong Zhang, and Wenbo Lu

This book evaluates the seismic performance of concrete gravity dams, considering the effects of strong motion duration, mainshock-aftershock seismic sequence, and near-fault ground motion. It employs both the extended finite element method (XFEM) and concrete damaged plasticity (CDP) models to characterize the mechanical behavior of concrete gravity dams under strong ground motions, including the dam-reservoir-foundation …

Design of Pile Foundations in Liquefiable Soils Book by Gopal Madabhushi, Jonathan Knappett, and Stuart Haigh

Pile foundations are the most common form of deep foundations that are used both onshore and offshore to transfer large superstructural loads into competent soil strata. This book provides many case histories of failure of pile foundations due to earthquake loading and soil liquefaction. Based on the observed case histories, the possible mechanisms of failure …

Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement by Jie Han

Ground improvement is popular in many countries to solve difficult geotechnical problems, especially when construction necessarily occurs in problematic soils and under difficult geotechnical conditions. Many recent developments in equipment, materials, and design methods have made ground improvement technologies more effective, efficient, and economic. However, the state of practice for most ground improvement technologies is …

Reliability-Based Design in Geotechnical Engineering

Reliability-based design is the only engineering methodology currently available which can ensure self-consistency in both physical and probabilistic terms.  It is also uniquely compatible with the theoretical basis underlying other disciplines such as structural design. It is especially relevant as geotechnical design becomes subject to increasing codification and to code harmonization across national boundaries and …
