Download A Comprehensive Database of Tests on Axially Loaded Piles by Zhongxuan Yang,Richard Jardine,Wangbo Guo,Fiona Chow PDF

By Zhongxuan Yang,Richard Jardine,Wangbo Guo,Fiona Chow

A finished Database of checks on Axially Loaded pushed Piles in Sands stories the severe have to enhance larger load-test databases for piles pushed in sands. the major caliber parameters, inhabitants of present entries and reporting codecs are defined ahead of supplying initial effects acquired from comparisons among axial capacities calculated by means of numerous predictive ways and location measurements. This ebook additionally exhibits that the "simplified" and "offshore" ICP and UWA versions proposed by means of a few practitioners are over-conservative and that their use may be discontinued. the hot pile capability and stiffness database deals a large scope for comparing capability prediction biases with regards to a variety of soil and pile parameters. Submission of additional prime quality exams for inclusion in usually up to date models is encouraged.

  • Presents a finished and up to date database for piles pushed in predominantly silica sands
  • Features reports of the layout tactics for pushed piles in sand
  • Assesses the functionality of varied mainstreams layout methods utilized for piles pushed in sand
  • Provides entire details of case histories of pile load tests

PEM Fuel Cells: Thermal and Water Management Fundamentals

Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) gasoline cells convert chemical strength in hydrogen into electricity with water because the purely derivative. hence, PEM gasoline cells carry nice promise to minimize either pollutant emissions and dependency on fossil fuels, particularly for transportation—passenger vehicles, software cars, and buses—and small-scale desk bound and transportable strength turbines.

An Introduction to Concrete Gravity Dams

This book offers introductory technical assistance for civil engineers and different expert engineers and building managers drawn to the layout and development of concrete gravity dams. here's what is mentioned: 1. basic layout concerns, 2. layout information, three. quite a bit

Engineering Geology

Engineering Geology is a multidisciplinary topic which interacts with different disciplines, corresponding to mineralogy, petrology, structural geology, hydrogeology, seismic engineering, rock engineering, soil mechanics, geophysics, distant sensing (RS-GIS-GPS), environmental geology, and so on. Engineers require a deeper figuring out, interpretation and analyses of earth sciences sooner than suggesting engineering designs and remedial measures to strive against traditional mess ups, akin to earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, particles flows, tsunamis, and floods.

Water Power Engineering, 2nd Edition

The publication offers a complete account of a massive quarter of engineering—the hydro-power—that is renewable and very likely sustainable. It covers the total scope of the topic in a lucid demeanour ranging from the basics of hydrology, to varied hydraulic and civil buildings to electric and mechanical apparatus as required for hydro-power tasks.
