Advances in Spatio Temporal Analysis Book Excerpt:

Developments in Geographic Information Technology have raised the expectations of users. A static map is no longer enough; there is now demand for a dynamic representation. Time is of great importance when operating on real world geographical phenomena, especially when these are dynamic. Researchers in the field of Temporal Geographical Information Systems (TGIS) have been developing methods of incorporating time into geographical information systems. Spatio-temporal analysis embodies spatial modelling, spatio-temporal modelling and spatial reasoning and data mining. Advances in Spatio-Temporal Analysis contributes to the field of spatio-temporal analysis, presenting innovative ideas and examples that reflect current progress and achievements.

Underground Space The 4th Dimension of Metropolises Three Volume Set CD ROM Book Excerpt:

The so-called fourth dimension of a metropolis is the underground space beneath a city which typically includes structures such as tunnels, which facilitate transport and provide gas, water and other supplies. Underground space may also be utilised for living, working and recreational facilities and industrial storage. These volumes focus on underground city design and planning; geotechnical survey and improvement of ground mass; and research, development and design of underground constructions in built-up areas. Also covered is the construction and monitoring of urban tunnels, including underground constructions executed from the surface; distribution and management of risks and accidents during tunnelling; tunnel equipment; fire and operational safety. This collection of papers will be invaluable to researchers, scientists, engineers and professionals working in the underground space.

Practical Tunnel Construction Book Excerpt:

The only modern guide to all aspects of practical tunnel construction Practical Tunnel Construction fills a void in the literature for a practical guide to tunnel construction. By taking the reader through a brief introduction and history to a comprehensive discussion of how the geological factors affect tunneling, the author covers the stages and technology that are common today without using complex equations. Written for the individual who does not have an extensive background in tunneling but who has to make tunneling decisions, the various tunneling methods are discussed to help in the determination of the appropriate method. The methods discussed are: hand mining, drill/blast, Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM), Norwegian Method of Tunnelling (NMT), Roadheader, Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPBM), and Slurry Pressure Balance Machine (SPBM). This book focuses on driven tunnels. This versatile handbook: Offers clear and accessible coverage of the state of the art in tunnel construction Introduces the essentials of design and construction of many types of tunnels, including TBM, EPB, Roadheader, NATM, drill and blast, and soft ground tunneling Provides nontechnical guidance on selecting the most appropriate tunneling methods for various situations Includes a brief history of tunneling and an introduction to geotechnical considerations Discusses tunnel access shaft construction, mucking methods, tunnel haulage, grout, water handling, and much more Practical Tunnel Construction is an important resource for students, construction managers, tunnel designers, municipal engineers, or engineers who are employed by government agencies or corporations that are exploring the feasibility of planning and designing or building a tunnel.

The Life of Structures Book Excerpt:

The Life of Structures: Physical Testing covers the proceedings of a seminar of the same name. The said seminar is focused on the actions on structures and the performance of existing populations of structures; the properties and performance of building materials; and the internal and external environments of buildings. The book covers topics such as the methodology for the prediction of the life of existing structures; reliability of service-proven structural systems; and some effects of micro-environment on materials. Also covered are subjects such as the assessment of structures through field measured dynamic response; physical properties of structures investigated by dynamic methods; and the stiffness damage test. The text is recommended for engineers who would like to know more about the strength and lifespan of structures, as well as the effectivity of the materials involved in their construction.
