9780419232100: Foundations on Rock: Engineering Practice, Second Edition

This second edition of the successful Foundations on Rock presents an up-to-date practical reference book describing current engineering practice in the investigation, design and construction of foundations on rock. An extra chapter on Tension Foundations has been included. The methods set out are readily applicable to high rise buildings, bridges, dams and structures subject to uplift and turning loads.

Foundations on Rock differs from the many texts and handbooks on soil foundations in that it focuses on the effect of geology on the stability and settlement of rock foundations. While the intact rock may be strong, defects in the rock such as faults, joints and cavities, and the deterioration of the rock with time, will have a significant effect on foundation performance. Methods of detecting such defects are described, and their implications for foundation design and treatment are elaborated.

Review:

'For practicing engineers, this book is a must.' - The Structural Engineer (on the first edition)

`In this new edition the material as a whole is again dealt with thoroughly and on a broad basis, so that the concise and well structured presentation is valuable not only for the evaluation of rock foundations, but also of rock slopes. Practicing engineers, teachers and students will certainly benefit from this 400 page publication.' Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering Vol. 34 2001
