Handbook of Slope Stabilisation by Jose A. Ortigao,J. A. R. Ortigao,Alberto Sayao

By Jose A. Ortigao,J. A. R. Ortigao,Alberto Sayao

This e-book is aimed toward the training engineer and engineering geologist operating in tropical environments, the place lands lides are in most cases brought on by means of rain fall. This e-book relies on an identical paintings released in 1999 in Portuguese, which grew to become the Rio de Janeiro Slope handbook. This booklet is an engineering consultant for the layout of slopes and stabilisation works in rocks and residual soils. It evolves from the cumulative event accumulated by means of numerous engineers and geologists who confronted serious slope difficulties. The authors' event all through critical and South the US (Costa Rica, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela) and the some distance East, specially Hong Kong and Malaysia, used to be used as a beginning for scripting this publication. The paintings additionally advantages vastly from the time spent in Hong Kong in 1996 and 1997 through the 1st editor on sabbatical on the urban collage of Hong Kong, and the discussions he had with many colleagues from the Geotechnical Engineering workplace (GEO) of the Hong Kong executive, specifically Dr. A. Malone, Mr. w.K. Pun, Dr. A. Li, Mr. ok. Ho, and Mr. y.c. Chan between others.
