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.

Soft soils present particular challenges to engineers and an understanding of the specific characteristics of these soils is indispensable. Laboratory techniques such as numerical modelling, theoretical analysis and constitutive modelling give new insights into soft soil material behaviour, while large-scale testing in the field provides important information in areas such as slope stability and soft soil improvements. This collection of papers from the Fourth International Conference on Soft Soil Engineering, Vancouver, 2006, presents an international appraisal of current research and new advances in engineering practices, illustrating the theory with relevant case studies. Geotechnical professionals, engineers, academics and researchers working in the areas of soft ground engineering and soft soil engineering will find this a valuable book.

Ideal for undergraduates of geotechnical engineering for civil engineers, this established textbook sets out the basic theories of soil mechanics in a clear and straightforward way; combining both classical and critical state theories and giving students a good grounding in the subject which will last right through into a career as a geotechnical engineer. The subject is broken down into discrete topics which are presented in a series of short, focused chapters with clear and accessible text that develops from the purely theoretical to discussing practical applications. Soil behaviour is described by relatively simple equations with clear parameters while a number of worked examples and simple experimental demonstrations are included to illustrate the principles involved and aid reader understanding.
