Earth Anchors Book Review:

Anchors are primarily used in the construction of foundations of earth-supported and earth-retaining structures. The anchors are used in construction to transmit the outwardly-directed load to soil at a greater depth and/or farther from the structure. Although earth anchors have been used in practice for several hundred years, proper theoretical developments for purposes of modern engineering design have taken place only during the past twenty years or so. This book summarizes most of the theoretical and experimental works directed toward the ultimate and allowable holding capacity of earth anchors. The book contains six chapters with detailed discussions on horizontal, vertical and inclined anchor plates, helical anchors, and anchor piles. Discussions on the failure mechanism in soil located around the anchor, as well as various theories to calculate the ultimate and allowable loads, are presented. Laboratory and field test results which are required to supplement and verify the theories have also been included. This book is of interest to consulting engineers in geotechnical engineering, as well as geotechnical engineering researchers and engineering libraries.

Ground Improvement Techniques Book Review:

Systematic treatment of difficult ground as a separate paper in undergraduate and postgraduate courses is gaining ground in Indian universities. Earlier, these topics were taught under a variety of subjects like Advanced Geotechnical Engineering, Retaining Structures, Dams, Pavement Designs, Application of Geosynthetics, Application of Soil Mechanics, and so on. However, field requirement and advances in the technology make a strong case for a focused treatment of the subject which this book provides. A full-fledged paper in ground improvement techniques concentrates on the topics of soil stabilization, compaction, preloading, vertical drains, geosynthetics, in-situ reinforcements and modelling of soil reinforcement. The book provides an overview of the basic concepts of ground modifications to difficult soils in a logical and illustrative way. It teaches how to apply alternative solutions to difficult foundation problems and evaluate their effectiveness before and after construction. The text is supported by a large number of examples, review and multiple choice questions, as well as practical problems. The book is intended to serve as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Geotechnical, Transportation, Hydraulic and Environmental Engineering, and a reference work for practising civil engineers. Salient features 1. A well researched textbook on ground improvement techniques 2. Conforms to the syllabi of all Indian universities where the subject is taught 3. Written by an expert on the subject with a decade of teaching experience

Symmetrical Anchor Plates in Soil Mechanic Book Review:

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 a greater depth by the soil anchors. Buried anchors have been used for thousands of years to stabilize structures. Tents are the oldest structures which were stabilized by using soil anchors or stakes. Until the middle of the nineteenth century, soil anchors were primarily used for stabilizing fairly lightweight structures. With the design and construction of large suspension bridges, very large loads were transmitted to the bridge foundation.In order to support these loads, permanent anchoring system in rock medium were gradually developed an constructed. With the development and construction of special lightweight structures such as transmission towers and radar towers, design of special tension anchoring systems for foundations became necessary primarily because the wind load created reactions which were greater than the self-weight of the structures. Soil anchors of various types are now used for uplift resistance of transmission towers, utility poles, aircraft moorings, submerged pipelines and tunnels.Soil anchors also used for tieback resistance of earth-retaining structures, water front structures and buried pressure pipelines to withstand thermal stress. 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.

Fourth International Conference on Current and Future Trends in Bridge Design Construction and Maintenance Book Review:

This is a state-of-the-art reference, an exchange of innovative experience, creative thinking and industry forecasts. This volume presents the proceedings of the fourth international conference in this series based in the Asia Pacific region, in Kuala Lumpur in October 2005 and is applicable to all sectors of the bridge engineering community. BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE AND FUTURE PERFORMANCE The Institution of Civil Engineers has collaborated with internationally renowned bridge engineers to organise three successful conferences to celebrate the enormous achievements made in the field of bridge engineering in recent years. As a discipline, bridge engineering not only requires knowledge and experience of bridge design and construction techniques but must also deal with increasing challenges posed by the need to maintain the long-term performance of structures throughout an extended service life. In many parts of the world natural phenomena such as seismic events can cause significant damage to force major repairs or reconstruction. Therefore, it is appropriate that the first plenary session of this conference is entitled Engineering for Seismic Performance. READERSHIP This compilation of papers will benefit practising civil and structural engineers in consulting firms and government agencies, bridge contractors, research institutes, universities and colleges. In short, it is of importance to all engineers involved in any aspect of the design, construction and repair, maintenance and refurbishment of bridges.

Temporary Structure Design Book Review:

A comprehensive guide to temporary structures in construction projects Temporary Structure Design is the first book of its kind, presenting students and professionals with authoritative coverage of the major concepts in designing temporary construction structures. Beginning with a review of statistics, it presents the core topics needed to fully comprehend the design of temporary structures: strength of materials; types of loads on temporary structures; scaffolding design; soil properties and soil loading; soldier beam, lagging, and tiebacks; sheet piling and strutting; pressure and forces on formwork and falsework; concrete formwork design; falsework; bracing and guying; trestles and equipment bridges; and the support of existing structures. Temporary structures during construction include scaffolding, formwork, shoring, ramps, platforms, earth-retaining structures, and other construction structures that are not part of the permanent installation. These structures are less regulated and monitored than most other parts of the construction process, even though they are often supporting tons of steel or concrete—and the safety of all workers on the site depends on these structures to perform as designed. Unfortunately, most tragic failures occur during construction and are usually the result of improperly designed, constructed, and/or maintained temporary structures. Temporary Structure Design fills an important need in the literature by providing a trusted, comprehensive guide to designing temporary construction structures. Serves as the first book to provide a design-oriented approach to the design of temporary structures Includes coverage of the various safety considerations inherent in temporary structure design and construction Provides information on estimating cost and schedules for these specialized structures Covers formwork and falsework, as well as personnel protection, production support, environmental protection, and foundational structures If you're a student or a professional working in the field of construction or structural engineering, Temporary Structure Design is a must-have resource you'll turn to again and again.
