Transportation Geotechnics - M.W. Frost et al

£17.99

Product description

Transportation Geotechnics: Proceedings of the Symposium Held at the Nottingham Trent University School of Property and Construction on 11 September 2003

Of all the aspects of civil engineering that involve geotechnical engineers, arguably the largest is that associated with transport infrastructure. The geotechnical engineering associated with infrastructure covers all facets of the profession, from assessment, interpretation and management of potential geotechnical problems, to the development and use of state-of-the-art construction or design techniques to optimize value for money. All of this work is preformed within the changing environment of the politics, standards, funding and management of the infrastructure. This symposium aims to address these issues by bringing together, in one volume, a wide-ranging collection of invited papers that highlight and address important current trends and innovative methods being used in transportation projects in the UK. It also considers some of the future issues that the geotechnical engineer must address in design, specification and construction in the context of sustainability.;The papers are broadly grouped into three areas: Geotechnical design and construction - which includes reviews and case studies on some of the current areas of interest to geotechnical engineers; Management and specifications - which considers the changing nature of funding of infrastructure schemes, due to the introduction of private finance, and the resulting evolution of specification, management and procurement; and Sustainability - which investigates issues facing the geotechnical engineering of infrastructure and therefore this publication is both timely and of great construction. These areas reflect the major issues facing the geotechnical engineering of infrastructure, and therefore this publication is both timely and of great relevance.
