    Understanding Bridge CollapsesBjorn kesson, Consulting Engineer, Fagersta, Sweden

    As widely known, much ofthe knowledge of today isoften based on the failuresof the past. Structuralengineers still learnimmensely from studyinghistorical failures ofstructures, such as bridges.In addition, when studyingreal bridge failures, boththe theory and the relatedphenomenon are supportedby what has happened in

    practice, which positively affects the acceptation andvisualization of the mathematical theories by the engineer.

    Richly illustrated and in a straightforward style, theauthor has provided a detailed overview of 20 cases offamous and other highly interesting bridge collapsesover the last two centuries. The failure analyses madeare supported by well-known explanations and, insome cases, by new theories. The chronological ordermakes it easy to follow the gradual development inthe use of different bridge types and the choice ofconstruction material. The increase of knowledge andexperience in the structural engineering discipline overthe years is clearly observable, although everymodern engineer will admit that both fatigue andbuckling are very complex phenomena and thatknowledge about them can increasingly profit fromstudying past bridge construction projects failures.

    This book is intended for consulting engineers(bridges, steel and metal structures) and foradvanced-level and postgraduate students instructural and bridge engineering. Because of itssystematic and visual character it may also form agood introduction to bridge failures and theunderstanding of complex structures to undergraduatestudents in civil and mechanical engineering.

    Hybrid SimulationTheory, Implementation and Applications

    Edited by Victor Saouma and M.V. Sivaselvan,University of Colorado at Boulder, CO, USA

    Hibrid Simulation: Theory,Implementation andApplications deals with arapidly evolvingtechnology combiningcomputer simulation(typically finite element)and physical laboratorytesting of twocomplementarysubstructures. It is a costeffective alternative toshaking table test, and

    allows for the improved understanding of complexcoupled systems. Traditionally, numerical simulationand physical tests have been uncoupled andperformed separately. In this simulation paradigmthe coupled nature of the simulation allows forimproved understanding, and more efficient designsince the factor of safety does not have to bearbitrarily inflated to account for uncertainties ofuncoupling. It is a multidisciplinary technology whichrelies heavily on control theory, computer science,numerical techniques and finds applications inaerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering.

    Deep ExcavationTheory and Practice

    Chang-Yu Ou, National Taiwan University ofScience and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan

    Most books on general foundation engineeringintroduce the basic analysis and design of excavation,but are usually not capable of dealing with analysisand design in practice. With continued economicdevelopment and increasing urbanization, excavationsgo deeper and become larger in scale, and aresometimes even carried out in difficult soils. Theseconditions require advanced analysis and designmethods and construction technologies. This bookexamines both theory and practical applications, frombasic to advanced, and discusses the major methodscurrently in practice around the world. Each chapteralso includes problems and their solutions todevelop a practical, real-world understanding.

These support systemsshould be matched to the characteristics of the rockmass and the excavation techniques adopted.Establishing the support requirements, designingsupport systems and installing these correctly areessential elements in safe underground construction.This is a comprehensive and practical work whichalso gives access to user-friendly computerprogrammes which enable the investigation anddesign of support techniques.

    Metro structures are the primary focus of this book.As they are the apotheosis of cut-and-coverstructures both for complexity and scale This givesthe subject of design in the context of cut-and-coverconstruction the coherence, the extent and thequality of coverage it deserves. Treatment of themultifaceted aspects of design of such structures isequally applicable to other, relatively simple, cut-and-cover structures also.

    Combining Geotechnical and Structural Engineeringwith both design and construction, this book is theonly one-stop resource for engineers working oncut-and-cover structures. Dealing primarilly withmetro structures, this book is nevertheless applicableto all kinds of cut-and-cover structure.August 2009: 246x174: 608ppHb: 978-0-415-46907-4: 90.00 US $180.00

    Mining and the EnvironmentFrom Ore to Metal

    Karlheinz Spitz, ERM, Perth, Australia and JohnTrudinger, Trudinger Consulting, Australia

    The history of mining isreplete with controversy,much of it relating toenvironmental damageand consequentcommunity outrage. Overrecent decades there hasbeen increasing pressureto improve theenvironmental and socialperformance of miningoperations, particularly indeveloping countries. The

    industry has responded by embracing the ideals ofcorporate social responsibility.

    This book identifies and discusses the wide range ofsocial and environmental issues pertaining to mining,with particular reference to mining in developingcountries from where many of the project examplesand case studies have been selected. Following anintroductory overview of the issues of concern, thebook illustrates how environmental impact assessmentas defined in The Equator Principles, integrates

The textillustrates the wide range of environmental and socialconcerns and opportunities. Practical approaches areprovided to manage issues ranging from landacquisition and resettlement or indigenous peoplesissues, through the technical aspects of acid rockdrainage and mine waste management, to athorough analysis of ways and means of sharingmining benefits with host communities so that thesebenefits are not transitory, allowing mining tobecome a sustainable economic activity.

    The wide coverage of issues raised illustrated bymany real-life case studies, makes this practice-oriented book a reference and key reading foroperators in the field, as well as for environmentalconsultants, regulators, and students.

    Nowadays, shovel-trucksystems are evaluated andanalysed by simulationmethods. Simulationtechniques, althoughhaving many merits alsopossesses some significantdisadvantages. Thereforean alternative method foranalysis and calculationsof this type of machinerysystems has been developedand will be of great value.

    Moreover, the method presented in this book is unique inthe sense that it takes into consideration the majority ofstochastic phenomena occurring during system operation.

    This book provides a comprehensive analysis of theexploitation process of shovel-truck systems usingmodelling, analysis and calculations followingspecific procedures: - analyzing the reliability andaccessibility of shovels; - discussing the functioning

    of a truck-repair shop system; - reliability of trucks;- existence of haulers reserve; - repair shop servicecapability; - possibility of occurrence of a queue offailed trucks; - selection of structural truck systemparameters; - reliability of repair stands; - constructinga set of unconditional efficiency measures for thesystem; - outlining of system productivity measures.2008: 246x174: 180ppHb: 978-0-415-48135-9: 63.99 US $99.95

    Drilling and Blasting of RocksE. Lopez Jimeno, C. Lopez Jimino and AyalaCarcedo, Universidad Politecnica Madrid, Spain

    Rock breakage with explosives has existed since the17th century when black powder came into use inmining. Since then it has progressed from the inventionof dynamite to the use of heavy ANFO. During the pasttwo decades, there have been numerous technicalcontributions which have brought a better understandingof rock fragmentation with explosives, an improvementin drilling equipment and a noticeable evolution inthe development of new explosives and blastingaccessories. The Geomining Technological Instituteof Spain (ITCE), aware of this progress and of theimportance which the breakage process has acquiredin mining and civil engineering projects, has orderedthe publication of Drilling and Blasting of Rocks.

    The purpose of this Handbook is to give basicknowledge of the drilling systems, the types ofavailable explosives and the accessories and theparameters that intervene in blast designing, whethercontrollable or not; at the same time the objectivesand contents contribute to improved safety inmining. It is meant for all professionals involved withexplosives in mining operations and civil engineeringprojects, as well as for students of technical schools.1995: 276x219: 400ppHb: 978-90-5410-199-4: 121.00 US $185.95
