Environmental Geotechnics is a forward-thinking guide to aid engineers in applying geotechnical principles, processes and techniques in a way that will not only reduce their environmental impact but should benefit the environment. The major construction-environment interface is geotechnical in nature. For engineers to be able to foresee environmental problems and modify construction Brand: ICE Publishing. Geotechnical engineering, also known as geotechnics, is the application of scientific methods and engineering principles to the acquisition, interpretation, and use of knowledge of materials of the Earth's crust and earth materials for the solution of engineering problems and the design of engineering works. It is the applied science of predicting the behavior of the Earth, its various.

technology, geotechnics, fluid mechanics and public health engineering PUBLICATIONS: Over Professor Jefferis’ experience is focused on the investigation and resolution of unusual materials and environmental problems typically associated with natural chemical and microbiological processes in the Size: KB. From the February "Geotechnics of a Sustainable Construction" symposium in Baltimore, 30 papers discuss current national and international research into using industrial by-products and other recycled materials in geotechnical construction.

The author outlines the fundamental principles of geotechnics and current ground engineering practice and proceeds to a detailed examination of the interaction with the environment. Environmental Geotechnics amalgamates the current body of knowledge on environmental aspects of ground engineering including landfill and contaminated land and as 5/5(1).

Environmental Geotechnics aims to disseminate man and the environment book and provides a fresh perspective regarding the basic concepts, theory, techniques and field applicability of innovative testing and analysis methodologies and engineering practices in geoenvironmental engineering.

Randy O’Rourke founded Geotechnics in when he set up shop in the basement of his home in Edgewood, just outside of Pittsburgh. His wife Judy was accustomed to dirty clothes piled around the washer and dryer.
