  • NEC3 and Construction Contracts: Compared and Contrasted, 2nd edition

    The practical book compares the increasingly popular NEC family of contracts with other construction industry standard forms. NEC3 and Construction Contracts: Compared and Contrasted will assist professionals – at all levels, involved in procurement in the construction industry - to make informed choices and give balanced advice when deciding which contract to use for a particular project.

    This new edition covers NEC3 in full as well as JCT, PPC and FIDIC forms of contract.

  • Deep Excavations Third edition
  • Due to Publish February 2015

    Deep Excavations: A Practical Manual assembles the practical rules and details for the efficient and economical execution of deep excavations. The third edition uses international case examples, including the Nicholas highway, Singapore and Silken Hotel, Aldwych, alongside the experience of both design and construction from published work and practical experience to do this. Each chapter is fully updated to current practice, including the latest contractor safety measures, construction regulations (including manslaughter), and causes and avoidance of injury and fatality. 

    New material has been included: basic reasons behind deep excavations; typical design calculations for basement excavation support and for cofferdams; underpinning and ground freezing in design of soil support; risk of deep cofferdams in soft ground; CTRL cut and cover; and Well formulae. Further details are also included on the computer programs available - FLAC, ABACUS, etc.

  • From Sea to Shore - Meeting the Challenges of the Sea
  • The ICE Coasts, Maritime Structures and Breakwaters conference series, sponsored by the ICE for over thirty years, is the leading forum for the presentation of the latest developments in coastal and maritime engineering.

    The tenth conference, From Sea to Shore – Meeting the Challenges of the Sea, was the largest in the history of the series attracting over 450 delegates and 130 papers across 3 plenary and 27 parallel sessions. In addition, these proceedings retain the tradition of including full discussions from each session.

  • Bio- and Chemo- Mechanical Processes in Geotechnical Engineering
  • The seventeenth Géotechnique Symposium in Print took place at the Institution of Civil Engineers on 3 June 2013 and sought to address the new challenges that are emerging from the interactions between multi-physical phenomena. These proceedings bring together the international research presented at the symposium and published across two issues of Géotechnique as well as additional subsequent research published in the journal.

    The papers selected for the symposium cover a wide range of geotechnical processes, including:

    • Experimental analysis and constitutive modelling of the bio- and chemo-mechanical behaviour of geomaterials.
    • Effects of changes in the pore water chemistry on soil and rock behaviour.
    • Interactions between geometrical scales of diverse biological, chemical, physical and mechanical processes.
    • Case studies of chemical and biological soil modifications.
    • Applications of bio- and chemo-mechanical models in emerging technologies.
