Item description for Constitutive & Centrifuge Model by Springman...
This book offers solutions to problems of hazard control of landslides in the highly seismic hilly areas and of tunnels in the complex geological formations. It is complementary to authors' book on Rock Mass Classification. Chapters on practical knowledge of both landslide and tunnelling hazards and behaviour of rock joints and rock masses are presented for preparation of realistic input data. This data is easy to prepare. The emphasis is on proper design of remedial measures and not on rigorous analysis. There are 18 practical and field-tested software packages on landslide in soil and rock (Part A) and 6 packages on tunnels (Part B) along with source programs, user manuals and solved examples. The computer programs on back analysis of rock/soil slopes are useful to analyse shear strength parameters along potential failure surfaces. A special feature of these programs/codes is approximate estimation of the dynamic settlement of slopes during earthquake. The computer programs on tunnels/shafts are equally simple to use for on-spot-design of supports with shotcrete/SFRS and rock bolts. Program on squeezing deals with most challenging problem of tunnelling in weak rocks. The chapter on subsidence due to coal mines is based on extensive field research.
