C.W.W. Ng, Y.H. Wang, L.M. Zhang, "Physical Modelling in Geotechnics, Two Volume Set"
2006 | ISBN: 0415415861 | English | 1529 pages | PDF | 73 MB
An excellent source of reference on the current practice of physical modelling in geotechnics and environmental engineering. Volume One concentrates on physical modelling facilities and experimental techniques, soil characterisation, slopes, dams, liquefaction, ground improvement and reinforcement, offshore foundations and anchors, and pipelines. Volume Two includes papers that focus on shallow and piled foundations, retaining structures, tunnelling, geoenvironment, complex process modelling and comparisons of results from 1-g to high-g physical modelling, numerical modelling and full-scale testing.
