Engineering in Chalk Hardback
Edited by James Lawrence
This volume contains the proceedings of a major two-day international conference on Engineering in Chalk, organised by the British Geotechnical Association (BGA), with support from the Engineering Group of the Geological Society (EGGS). Bringing together the knowledge and experience gained in the last three decades the papers in this collection present research and case histories to provide a definitive up to date perspective on a wide range of technical themes relating to engineering in chalk. The papers reflect the themes of the conference* earthworks in chalk* foundations and piling in chalk* geological hazards in chalk* offshore engineering in chalk*site investigation/characterization in chalk* testing in chalk - in situ and laboratory* tunnelling in chalk* future engineering issues in chalk. This volume covers a wide range of topics which are of direct relevance to all who work within the broad field of geotechnical engineering, including consultants contractors, academics, materials suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and the owners and operators of infrastructure, and structures and facilities.
