Single piles and pile groups under lateral loading, 2nd Edition [Print / CD] REESE, L. C., VAN IMPE, W. CRC, 2012 e complexities of designing piles for lateral loads are manifold as there are many forces that are critical to the design of big structures such as bridges, o shore and waterfront structures and retaining walls. e loads on structures should be supported either horizontally or laterally or in both directions and most structures have in common that they are founded on piles. To create solid foundations, the pile designer is driven towards nding the critical load on a certain structure, either by causing overload or by causing too much lateral de ection. is second edition of Reese and Van Impe s course book explores and explains lateral load design and procedures for designing piles and pile groups, accounting for the soil resistance, as related to the lateral de ection of the pile. It addresses the analysis of piles of varying sti ness installed into soils with a variety of characteristics, accounting for the axial load at the top of the pile and for the rotational restraint of the pile head. e presented method using load-transfer functions is currently applied in practice by thousands of engineering o ces in the world. Moreover, various experimental case design examples, including the design of an o shore platform pile foundation are given to complement theory. e rich list of relevant publications will serve the user into further reading. Designed as a textbook for senior undergraduate/graduate student courses in pile engineering, foundation engineering and related subjects, this set of book and CD-ROM will also bene t professionals in civil and mining engineering and in the applied earth sciences. 8th RMS Annual Bridge Conference: Reliable bridges through quality, 5-6 December 2012, Sydney, NSW [CD] e conference focuses on new and emerging technologies and innovative ways of using current technology to help solve new problems. Society demands there be more infrastructure in a shorter time frame and at a lower cost but without compromising quality. e challenge is to provide this new high quality infrastructure that will be reliable and sustainable with minimum maintenance and whole life costs. e goal can be achieved through good design, high standard of construction complying to speci cations, use of durable materials, proactive maintenance strategies and innovative engineering solutions. CIES Symposium on sustainability in civil infrastructure: Design, construction and resilience, 10 October, 2012, Sydney, NSW [CD] is unique event hosted by the UNSW Centre for Infrastructure Engineering and Safety (CIES) heard from international and national leaders in the eld of Sustainable Infrastructure research and practice. Scientia Professor Mark Bradford led a "who s who" of international and national researchers in the discussion of the highly topical and relevant area of Sustainability in Civil Infrastructure: Design, Construction and Resilience. e Spirit of SMEC: Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation RINGER, R. SMEC, 2012 e Spirit of SMEC is an Australian story that explores the life and times of the people who have made SMEC what it is today -- a highly successful and respected consulting engineering company. Seen through the eyes of SMEC s multicultural heritage, the book is more than a history of events or the study of SMEC s many engineering achievements, it portrays the pioneering spirit of SMEC and its people and the Company s origins in the Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme. At the heart of SMEC s early work were major water and hydropower projects in South East Asia including Khao Laem ( ailand), Batang Ai (Malaysia), Pergau (Malaysia) and the Shoalhaven Scheme (Australia). Having established a reputation for the delivery of high-quality projects in South East Asia, SMEC moved north into India, north Asia and the People s Republic of China and delivered major projects including Lubuge in China. SMEC was an early pioneer of concrete and steel bridge projects throughout Indonesia, road building across ailand, Bangladesh, Pakistan and extensive irrigation works in the Philippines. Pervious Concrete BROWN, H. J., OFFENBERG, M. ASTM International, 2012 Seven peer-reviewed papers provide the latest information on specifying, designing, testing, and installing pervious concrete. ese papers re ect data collected on pervious projects relating to fresh concrete properties, hardened properties, durability, permeability, and mix design alternatives.
