ENGINEERING OF GLACIAL DEPOSITS (hb) 2017
Author: BARRY G. CLARKE
ISBN: 9780415398657
Year: 2017
Publisher: CRC PRESS
Category: CIVIL ENGINEERING
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 504
 ABOUT THE TITLE
At some time 30% of the world’s land mass was covered by glaciers leaving substantial deposits of glacial soils under major conurbations in Europe, North and South America, New Zealand, Europe and Russia. For instance, 60% of the UK has been affected, leaving significant glacial deposits under major conurbations where two thirds of the population live.
Glacial soils are composite soils with significant variations in composition and properties and are recognised as challenging soils to deal with. Understanding the environment in which they were formed and how this affects their behaviour are critical because they do not always conform to classic theories of soil mechanics.
This book is aimed at designers and contractors working in the construction and extractive industries to help them mitigate construction hazards on, with or in glacial deposits. These soils increase risks to critical infrastructure which, in the UK includes the majority of the road and rail network, coastal defences such as the fastest eroding coastline in Europe and most of the water supply reservoirs.
It brings together many years of experience of research into the behaviour of glacial deposits drawing upon published and unpublished case studies from industry. It draws on recent developments in understanding of the geological processes and the impact they have upon the engineering properties, construction processes and performance of geotechnical structures. Unlike other books on glaciation it brings together all the relevant disciplines in earth sciences and engineering to make it directly relevant to the construction industry.

Features
Draws on the author's extensive practical experience.
Makes use of published and unpublished case studies and research data.
Uses recent developments in the understanding of glacial environments to help explain the behaviour of the glacial deposits and how they affect the construction processes and performance of geotechnical structures.
The first book to demonstrate the direct link between the deposition and post deposition processes and the engineering properties.

Author: Barry G. Clarke is Professor of Civil Engineering Geotechnics at the University of Leeds, UK and past president of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
