Up-to-date coverage of fundamental seepage principles, closed-form solutions, and applications Seepage in Soils combines a broad range of applications with rigorous quantitative skills to give insight into the fundamental principles and mathematical solutions of seepage. A wealth of closed-form analytical solutions are provided to solve a variety of problems, minimizing the use of computer software and numerical models. Completely up to date with coverage of new developments in separators, filters, and geosynthetics, this textbook includes exercises in seepage quantification, seepage forces, and dewatering. Complete coverage is useful in all subdivisions of civil engineering. Material is divided into three modules: * Principles and mathematical solutions * Filters and drainage layers * Applications Only a nominal background in mathematics and soil mechanics is required for Seepage in Soils to serve as an invaluable resource for civil engineering students across many subdisciplines. In addition, it serves as a useful reference for geotechnical, environmental, and structural engineers, hydrologists, geologists, agronomists, and soil scientists.

Advances in Unsaturated Soil, Seepage, and Environmental Geotechnics represents the latest advances in applied unsaturated soil mechanics, and coupled phenomena in geotechnical engineering practice. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 42 papers that were presented at the GeoShanghai Conference held in Shanghai, China from June 6-8, 2006. The book begins with two state-of-the-art papers on geoenvironmental engineering and unsaturated soil mechanics applied to field problems. It then continues by highlighting papers on unsaturated soil phenomena, coupled phenomena and transport phenomena. The book showcases new experimental evidence and theoretical developments on strength and deformational behaviors of both expansive soil and collapsible loess, as well as some new testing techniques to characterize volumetric change and strength of these problematic soils. It reports on the latest understanding of various coupled phenomena in soils such as hydro-biological, hydro-mechanical, hydro-thermal, thermal-mechanical and hydro-chemical coupling. The papers also address the latest advances in geoenvironmental applications including the sustainability of landfills, removal of various contaminants from soils, soil-contaminant interactions and soil stabilization.

Fresh water is becoming an ever increasingly precious commodity, control of which could lead in the near future to the type of political instability now associated with energy shortages. This book addresses the different aspects of irrigation, including not only the management of water resources and scientific and technical aspects, but also matters related to policy and economics, researchers in academia and industry as well as professional practitioners and policy makers. Bringing together papers from the First International Conference on Sustainable Irrigation Management, Technologies and Policies, the book covers topics such as: Irrigation Controls; Irrigation Modelling; Irrigation Systems and Planning; Irrigation Management.

This book introduces the basic principles of engineering behaviour of soils. The text is designed in such a manner that the syllabi of a core course in Soil Mechanics/Geotechnical Engineering I prescribed in the curriculum of most of the Indian universities is covered. While reading the text, student experiences classroom teaching–learning process. An emphasis is made on explaining the various concepts rather than giving the procedure. After reading this book, students should be able to: • Give an engineering classification of a soil • Understand the principle of effective stress, and then calculate stresses that influence soil behaviour • Calculate water flow through ground and understand the effects of seepage on the stability of structures. This textbook is primarily intended for the undergraduate students of civil engineering. Key Features • Numerous numerical solved examples • Objective Type Questions (with Answers) at the end of each chapter • Use of SI Systems of units

These proceedings document the various papers delivered and partially presented at the International Conference “From experimental evidence towards numerical modeling of unsaturated soils,” which was held in Weimar (Germany) during 18-19 September 2003. The conference was organized under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and the National German G- technical Society (DGGT). The need to understand the behavior of unsaturated soils is becoming exclusively - sential for the geotechnical engineers and designers. In the last three decades many - searchers have made significant contribution to the understanding of the unsaturated soil mechanics. Nevertheless, application of the subject to variety of new problems still - quires our attention. This International conference is a mere attempt to unite researchers and engineers in geotechnical engineering and to discuss about the problems associated with the unsaturated soils. Doing so the objectives of these lecture notes are as follows: - to promote unsaturated soil mechanics for practical application, - to exchange experiences in experimental unsaturated soil mechanics and numerical modeling, - to discuss application of unsaturated soil mechanics to variety of problems. In other words, we could also name these two volumes as “From theory to daily pr- tice”. I would like to extend my deep sense of appreciation as the editor and the Head of the organizing committee, to many persons who have contributed either directly or indirectly to organize the International conference and to finalize these proceedings.

Introducing the first integrated coverage of sedimentary and residual soil engineering Despite its prevalence in under-developed parts of the United States and most tropical and sub-tropical countries, residual soil is often characterized as a mere extension of conventional soil mechanics in many textbooks. Now, with the rapid growth of construction in these regions, it is essential to gain a fuller understanding of residual soils and their properties—one that's based on an integrated approach to the study of residual and sedimentary soils. One text puts this understanding well within reach: Fundamentals of Soil Mechanics for Sedimentary and Residual Soils. The first resource to provide equal treatment of both residual and sedimentary soils and their unique engineering properties, this skill-building guide offers: A concise introduction to basic soil mechanics, stress-strain behavior, testing, and design In-depth coverage that spans the full scope of soil engineering, from bearing capacity and foundation design to the stability of slopes A focus on concepts and principles rather than methods, helping you avoid idealized versions of soil behavior and maintain a design approach that is consistent with real soils of the natural world An abundance of worked problems throughout, demonstrating in some cases that conventional design techniques applicable to sedimentary soils are not valid for residual soils Numerous end-of-chapter exercises supported by an online solutions manual Full chapter-ending references Taken together, Fundamentals of Soil Mechanics for Sedimentary and Residual Soils is a comprehensive, balanced soil engineering sourcebook that will prove indispensable for practitioners and students in civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, and geology.
