Paper Number: ISRM-IS-2000-447
... mechanics were known, and that they still stand today is a testament to the eminent engineers of the time. Their problems are related to their function of retaining water, and to their history, geological setting, usage and interaction with other structures. This paper considers how the results of...

... is presented and compared with the static design. Each piling rig was equipped with computerised monitoring equipment, the output of which was reviewed by the design engineers to ensure compliance with design requirements. The computerised monitoring ensured that a high level of quality control was...

... seismic retrofit. The concept of allowing mobilization of ultimate capacity of foundations during earthquakes represents a major change in conventional design philosophy for geotechnical engineers. The nonlinear modeling of shallow foundations for buildings and piled footings for bridges are the focal...

... ABSTRACT: Since 1991, the number of Canadian students graduating in geological engineering has doubled and currently stands at about 150 per year. The nine active geological engineering programs in Canada each graduate 15–20 new geological engineers per year. The number of students enrolled in...

... ABSTRACT: Due to the increase in service loads of foundations, a worldwide trend is being followed by geotechnical engineers and designers to measure the real behaviour of the pile-soil interaction. Historically, this was defined by the Load-Displacement Curve, obtained from a Static Load Test...

... understanding of the influence of structural defects on mechanical behaviours of soils and rocks raises the question of more naturalistic description of these defects. Here is the true place of geology in soil and rock mechanics. INTRODUCTION Any rock or rock mass the engineer has to deal with can be seen...

SUMMARY Teaching and research in engineering must take into account the needs of developing nations so that the differences between such nations and those that enjoy high standards of living may be minimized. In doing his share toward this goal, the civil engineer must plan, design, and manage...
