Description

"Sinkholes and Subsidence" provides a twenty-first century account of how the various subsidence features in carbonate and evaporite rocks cause problems in development and construction in our living environment.

The authors explain the processes by which different types of sinkholes develop and mature in karst terrains.

They consider the various methods used in site investigations, both direct and indirect, to locate the features associated with these hazards and risks, highlighting the value of hazard mapping.

Various ground improvement techniques and the special types of foundation structures which deal with these problems are covered in the second half of the text.

This book is supplemented with a wealth of actual case studies and solutions, written by invited experts.
