This is a concise, systematic and complete treatment of the design and construction of pile foundations. Discusses pile behavior under various loadings and types of piles and their installation, including consideration of soil parameters. It provides step-by-step design procedures for piles subject to vertical loading and pullout, lateral, inclined and eccentric loads, or dynamic loads, and for piles in permafrost. Also describes load test procedures and their interpretation and buckling of long, slender piles with and without supported length. The closing chapter presents case histories of prediction and performance of piles and pile groups. Includes numerous solved problems.

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.

This book is the sixth volume of the proceedings of the 4th GeoShanghai International Conference that was held on May 27 - 30, 2018. This volume, entitled “Advances in Soil Dynamics and Foundation Engineering”, covers the recent advances and technologies in soil dynamics and foundation engineering. These papers are grouped into four categories: (1) soil dynamics and earthquake engineering, (2) deep excavations and retaining structures, (3) shafts and deep foundations, and (4) offshore geotechnics. It presents the state-of-the-art theories, experiments, methodologies and findings in the related areas. The book may benefit researchers and scientists from the academic fields of soil dynamics and earthquake engineering, geotechnical engineering, geoenvironmental engineering, transportation engineering, geology, mining and energy, as well as practical engineers from the industry. Each of the papers included in this book received at least two positive peer reviews. The editors would like to express their sincerest appreciation to all of the anonymous reviewers all over the world, for their diligent work.

A comprehensive practical manual covering all aspects of this field, this book covers everything from the pre-design stage up to, and including, the actual use (including maintenance) of the completed structures. Much attention is given to the calculation methods available for design and construction, including establishing the soil parameters required, with emphasis placed on probabilistic safety analysis. This informative book includes an inventory of: · the properties of natural types of soil, secondary materials, and light-weight materials · raising and filling construction methods · techniques and methods to speed up consolidation and limit deformation Compiled by researchers from Fugro, Delft Geotechnics and several other Dutch contractors, it includes useful appendices focusing on particular points of interest from the preceding chapters.

Deep excavations in densely populated urban areas around the world pose specific challenges due to the increasingly complex conditions in which they are undertaken. The construction of underground car parks, cellar storage areas and major infrastructure in deep excavations helps to preserve the quality of space above ground. Despite the considerable effort that goes into their design and construction, such projects often encounter problems, such as damage to existing structures, delays and cost overruns. This book presents the results of an extensive research project conducted at the University of Cambridge, in cooperation with the Netherlands Centre of Underground Construction (COB) and Deltares, the Dutch Institute for water, subsurface and infrastructure issues. The study gained insight into mechanisms of soil-structure interaction for piled buildings adjacent to deep excavations and resulted in suggestions for designing and monitoring deep excavations in urban areas with soft soil conditions. Monitoring data of the construction of three deep excavations for the North–South metro line in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, have been used to validate the methods described. This book aims to contribute to the reduction of failure costs in the building industry, and in underground construction in particular.
