Stiff Sedimentary Clays: Geotechnique 2007 Symposium in Print (Geotechnical and Environmental)

Science and applications concerning stiff sedimentary clays in civil engineering and geotechnical engineering have seen great strides in the last decade, as reflected in the contributions to this major volume of articles, some of which derive from the 14th Geotechnique Symposium in Print (of 2007), and others from earlier symposia. Of the 17 papers, about half are devoted to analyses of London Clay, with discussion of the variation of the clay as a structure, its strength, stratigraphic variations with regard to liquid limit, stress-strain behavior, slope behavior, and issues pertinent to its possible use as nuclear waste repository. Among the other paper topics are the characteristics of Boom Clay and sub-Apennine Blue Clays, reports of laboratory experiments and modeling, and specific engineering projects, including two studies from the Terminal 5 site at Heathrow Airport. Each paper includes an abstract in English and French, a list of keywords, and a bibliography. Not indexed, the volume is oversized, at 8.5x12". Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
