Engineering Geology and Construction

Winner of the 2004 Claire P. Holdredge Award of the Association of Engineering Geologists (USA). The only book to concentrate on the relationship between geology and its implications for construction, this book covers the full scope of the subject from site investigation through to the complexities of reservoirs and dam sites

Engineering Geology for Tomorrow's Cities

This book and the accompanying DVD provide a statement of our knowledge and understanding of engineering geology as applied to the urban environment at the start of the 21st century.

Introductory Mining Engineering, 2nd Edition

An introductory text and reference on mining engineering highlighting the latest in mining technology Introductory Mining Engineering outlines the role of the mining engineer throughout the life of a mine, including prospecting for the deposit, determining the site's value, developing the mine, extracting the mineral values, and reclaiming the land afterward.

Modern Geophysics In Engineering Geology

In this book many examples of the successful integration of geophysical surveys into the site investigation process are described. The authors are drawn from many different countries and the case histories presented clearly indicate the importance of geophysical methods in the construction history in a world-wide context.

Geological Engineering

Interpreting a geological setting for the purposes of engineering design and construction requires knowledge of geological engineering and engineering geology, leading to integrated engineering solutions which take into account both ground conditions and environment. This textbook, extensively illustrated, covers the subject area of geological engineering in four sections.

Geology for Civil Engineers

Preface to the second edition. Preface to the first edition. Introduction. Minerals and rocks. Superficial deposits. Distribution of rocks at and below the surface. Subsurface (ground) water. Geological exploration of an engineering site. Rocks and civil engineering. Principal geological factors affecting certain engineering projects.

Engineering Geology: Principles and Practice

This text is directed at the heart of Engineering Geology where geology is used to identify potential problems arising from ground conditions. It describes how to investigate those conditions and to define an engineering response that will either avoid or reduce or even eliminate the problems revealed.

Longwall Mining, Second Edition

This reference text covers longwall mining technology developed and practiced in the US during the last 30 years. It begins with a description of the technology and the special features about US longwalls including their requirements and constraints.

Introduction to Cut-off Grade Estimation

An Introduction to Cut-off Grade Estimation includes dozens of charts, graphs, and mathematical formulas to explain basic concepts in a simple, step-by-step fashion. It is a "must read" for mine managers, analysts, geologists, mining engineers, and public policymakers who want to stay on the leading edge of their profession.

Industrial Minerals and Extractive Industry Geology

Industrial Minerals, including construction raw materials, provides the bulk of the solid minerals required by most developed countries, both in tonnage and value. In other countries, the discovery and extraction of industrial minerals is an essential stage in economic development. This book contains a comprehensive coverage of the subjects that occupy professional geoscientists working in industrial minerals and the extractive industry. It includes descriptions of the geology of many deposits, country and regional reviews of industrial minerals, mineral economics, case histories of extraction, techniques for exploration and evaluation, examples of quarry and pit design, risk management, minerals planning/permitting and legislation, the environmental impact of mineral extraction, and mine waste and by-product utilization. The book results from a unique international event which combined the 36th North American Forum on the geology of Industrial Minerals with the 11th UK Extractive Industry Geology Conference. Papers by leading experts from industry, consultancies, government bodies and academia, based in Europe, North America and elsewhere are included. The book will appeal to all professional geoscientists involved with industrial minerals and the extractive industry and others, including mining engineers, planners, mineral economists and environmental geoscientists.

Technology Innovation in Underground Construction

Richly-illustrated reference guide presenting innovative techniques focused on reducing time, cost and risk in the construction and maintenance of underground facilities.

Fractured Reservoirs

Fractured reservoirs contain a significant proportion of the global hydrocarbon reserves; however, they commonly exhibit unpredictable and extreme production behaviour. To develop such reservoirs it is necessary to obtain the best understanding possible of the fracture network and its impact on the fluid flow within the reservoir, using the full range of geoscience and engineering datasets available at all scales.

Mine Design: Examples Using Simulation

Solve everyday mining problems quickly and easily by applying the computer lanaguage GPSS (General Purpose Simulation System). Part I of the book reviews mining simulation in general and describes why the GPSS/H simulation language was selected. Part II is an overview of the language itself to help you obtain maximum benefit from the mining examples, which are contained on the included CD.

Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design

This important book is an outcome of an international project on the stability of rock slopes in open pit mines, and is designed to link innovative mining geomechanics research with best practice

Engineering Geology

Every engineering structure, whether it's a building, bridge or road, is affected by the ground on which it is built. Geology is of fundamental importance when deciding on the location and design of all engineering works, and it is essential that engineers have a basic knowledge of the subject.

Foundations of Engineering Geology

Now in full colour, the third edition of this well established book provides a readable and highly illustrated overview of the aspects of geology that are most significant to civil engineers.
