By Roy E. Hunt
With transparent, concise, and hands-on information, this publication describes those rock and soil kinds when it comes to their beginning, mode of prevalence, and structural beneficial properties in situ and offers the common features which are of engineering importance. It additionally explains the weather that impact floor and subsurface water engineering when it comes to controlling floods, erosion, subsurface circulate, and seepage, in addition to for water conservation. providing very important correlations used to estimate engineering and geologic houses, the e-book offers correlations for intact rock, rock lots, and soil formations through the chapters and condenses this knowledge right into a handy precis desk in an appendix.
Eliminate the necessity to seek via slim volumes or huge handbooks with features of Geologic fabrics and Formations: A box consultant for Geotechnical Engineers, a handy and entire consultant to the suggestions you need.

Zyklische Ermüdung von thermisch entspanntem und thermisch vorgespanntem Kalk-Natron-Silikatglas: Cyclic fatigue of annealed and tempered soda-lime glass ... Konstruktion im Bauwesen) (German Edition)
Im vorliegenden Band wird das Verhalten von thermisch entspanntem und thermisch vorgespanntem Kalk-Natron-Silikatglas bei schwingender Beanspruchung anhand von Dauerschwingprüfungen im Doppelring- und 3-Punkt-Biegeversuch unter verschiedenen Randbedingungen untersucht. Zudem wird überprüft, ob Kalk- Natron-Silikatglas bei periodischer Beanspruchung eine Ermüdungsschwelle aufweist und Rissheilungseffekte zwischen den einzelnen Lastzyklen auftreten.
