Geotechnical design to Eurocode 7

Author: Trevor L L Orr; Eric R Farrell
Publisher: London ; New York : Springer, 1999.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The purpose of the Eurocodes is to achieve harmonization between structural and geotechnical design in Europe. All of the Eurocodes are based on the same limit state philosophy that has not been widely used before for geotechnical designs. This book gives a clear and detailed demonstration of how the philosophy and principles presented in Eurocode 7 (EC7), are applied in practice. Simple language and detailed  Read more...

   schema:description "The purpose of the Eurocodes is to achieve harmonization between structural and geotechnical design in Europe. All of the Eurocodes are based on the same limit state philosophy that has not been widely used before for geotechnical designs. This book gives a clear and detailed demonstration of how the philosophy and principles presented in Eurocode 7 (EC7), are applied in practice. Simple language and detailed examples are used to explain the clauses in EC7, which are written in the formal and often confusing Eurocode language. The worked examples of different geotechnical designs are an important feature of this book. In particular the authors explain how Cases A, B and C are used in geotechnical designs and how characteristic and design parameters are selected. The book also outlines the most recent developments that have occurred, such as the introduction of additional design cases, as EC7 moves towards publication as a full European standard. The types of design covered include: Shallow strip and pad foundations; Pile foundations; Cantilever and embedded sheet pile retaining walls; Ground anchors; Slope stability problems; Fills. This book is an essential source of information for practising engineers involved in geotechnical designs and for engineering geologists and others involved in ground investigations and the testing of soils. It will also be a valuable text for undergraduate and postgraduate civil engineering students."@en ;
