This is a comprehensive introduction to the inner workings of rock music. Everett takes readers through all aspects of the music and its lyrics, leading fans and listeners to new insights and new ways to develop their own interpretations of the aural landscapes of their lives.
This second edition of the successful Foundations on Rock presents an up-to-date practical reference book describing current engineering practice in the investigation, design and construction of foundations on rock. An extra chapter on Tension Foundations has been included. The methods set out are readily applicable to high rise buildings, bridges, dams and structures subject to uplift and turning loads. Foundations on Rock differs from the many texts and handbooks on soil foundations in that it focuses on the effect of geology on the stability and settlement of rock foundations. While the intact rock may be strong, defects in the rock such as faults, joints and cavities, and the deterioration of the rock with time, will have a significant effect on foundation performance. Methods of detecting such defects are described, and their implications for foundation design and treatment are elaborated.
"This report provides a methodology for estimating the time rate of scour and the design scour depth for a bridge founded on rock, as well as design and construction guidelines for application of the methodology. It will be of interest to hydraulic, bridge, and geotechnical engineers responsible for designing bridge foundations on rock or maintenance engineers concerned about existing bridges founded on erodible rock."--Foreword.
Introductory technical guidance for civil and geotechnical engineers and construction managers interested in sliding stability of foundations on rock. Here is what is discussed: 1. MODES OF FAILURE 2. METHODS OF ANALYSIS 3. PRELIMINARY PROCEDURES 4. ANALYTICAL PROCEDURES 5. DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS 6. SEISMIC SLIDING STABILITY 7. TREATMENT METHODS.
Dealing with dam types such as gravity, counterfort and arch, this guide examines construction techniques, their development over the years, and their merits and demerits. As well as providing citations of dams, patents and codes, the text presents comparative data on world dams, updated to 1991.
This report develops and calibrates procedures and modifies the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, Section 10-Foundations for the Strength Limit State Design of Shallow Foundations. The material in this report will be of immediate interest to bridge engineers and geotechnical engineers involved in the design of shallow foundations.
