This book presents a one-stop reference to the empirical correlations used extensively in geotechnical engineering. Empirical correlations play a key role in geotechnical engineering designs and analysis. Laboratory and in situ testing of soils can add significant cost to a civil engineering project. By using appropriate empirical correlations, it is possible to derive many design parameters, thus limiting our reliance on these soil tests. The authors have decades of experience in geotechnical engineering, as professional engineers or researchers. The objective of this book is to present a…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
This book presents a one-stop reference to the empirical correlations used extensively in geotechnical engineering. Empirical correlations play a key role in geotechnical engineering designs and analysis. Laboratory and in situ testing of soils can add significant cost to a civil engineering project. By using appropriate empirical correlations, it is possible to derive many design parameters, thus limiting our reliance on these soil tests. The authors have decades of experience in geotechnical engineering, as professional engineers or researchers. The objective of this book is to present a critical evaluation of a wide range of empirical correlations reported in the literature, along with typical values of soil parameters, in the light of their experience and knowledge. This book will be a one-stop-shop for the practising professionals, geotechnical researchers and academics looking for specific correlations for estimating certain geotechnical parameters. The empirical correlations in the forms of equations and charts and typical values are collated from extensive literature review, and from the authors' database.

Autorenporträt
Dr. Jay Ameratunga has been a practising civil engineer for over 35 years specialising in geotechnical engineering. After graduating from the University of Ceylon, Peradeniya in Sri Lanka, he obtained his Masters at the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, and obtained his PhD from Monash University, Australia. Early part of his career was spent in Sri Lanka before joining the Coffey Group in 1989. He has been involved with the investigation, design and construction of many major projects, especially in Australia and New Zealand, including the Gateway Upgrade Project and the Future Port Expansion Seawall Project in Brisbane, and the State Highway 16 Project in Auckland. He works closely with universities on major research projects and mentors PhD students and young engineers. He has also been a visiting lecturer at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. He has co-authored close to 50 technical papers on soft clay, reclamation and ground improvement and has presented in conferences in Australia, New Zealand and at other international venues. He is a Past Chair, Australian Geomechanics Society, Queensland Division, a member of the Australian Standards Committee for Geosynthetics and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, Australia.
