Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition

Featured

Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin
August 8, 2017

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of ...

Rock Reinforcement and Rock Support

Ömer Aydan
January 08, 2018

The stability of underground and surface geotechnical structures during and after excavation is of great concern as any kind of instability may result in damage to the environment as well as time-consuming high cost repair work. The forms of instability, their mechanisms and the conditions...

Effective Stress and Equilibrium Equation for Soil Mechanics

Longtan Shao, Xiaoxia Guo, Shiyi Liu, Guofeng Zheng
December 22, 2017

The concept of effective stress and the effective stress equation is fundamental for establishing the theory of strength and the relationship of stress and strain in soil mechanics and poromechanics. However, up till now, the physical meaning of effective stress has not been explained clearly, and...
