Environmental Geotechnics offers with a wide selection of functions, similar to the characterization of polluted websites and landfill waste, the layout of containment structures for subsoil pollutant regulate, radioactive waste disposal, geo-energy exploitation and bacteria-driven soil amendment, between others. trustworthy and powerful predictions of the particular behaviour and function of those very advanced structures require a deep knowing of the coupled hydro-bio-chemo-mechanical phenomena that happen at very various scales. destiny growth within the medical cutting-edge and sizeable developments within the average practices will hence be heavily with regards to the improvement of shared wisdom between diverse disciplines. The extension and refinement of theoretical modelling and the experimentation services inspired by means of geo-environmental functions extra generally give you the framework for great developments within the soil and rock mechanics fields.
Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics collects the exact lectures and papers offered on the foreign Symposium on Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics (Torino, Italy, 1-3 July 2013), which used to be geared up by way of the Italian Geotechnical Society in the framework of Technical Committee TC 215 of the foreign Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). The ebook, with contributions not just from the geotechnical group, but in addition from comparable and complementary disciplines, is of specific curiosity to engineers and lecturers in geotechnical and environmental engineering.
