Deep Excavation: Theory and Practice

Deep Excavation: Theory and Practice 

Chang-Yu Ou

Preference :

Accelerating economic development and urbanization has led to engineers becoming increasingly ambitious, carrying out excavations in more difficult soils, so that excavations are deeper and more extensive. These complex conditions require advanced analysis, design methods, and construction technologies. Most books on general foundation engineering introduce basic analysis and design of excavation but do not usually deal with analysis and design in practice. This book covers both areas, introducing methods currently used in modern engineering, which can readily be applied to analysis and design in actual excavations.
