This book was released on 2019-04-17 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tunnels and Underground Cities: Engineering and Innovation meet Archaeology, Architecture and Art contains the contributions presented at the World Tunnel Congress 2019 (Naples, Italy, 3-9 May 2019). The use of underground space is continuing to grow, due to global urbanization, public demand for efficient transportation, and energy saving, production and distribution. The growing need for space at ground level, along with its continuous value increase and the challenges of energy saving and achieving sustainable development objectives, demand greater and better use of the underground space to ensure that it supports sustainable, resilient and more liveable cities. This vision was the source of inspiration for the design of the logos of both the International (ITA) and Italian (SIG) Tunnelling Association. By placing key infrastructures underground – the black circle in the logos – it will be possible to preserve and enhance the quality of the space at ground level – the green line. In order to consider and value underground space usage together with human and social needs, engineers, architects, and artists will have to learn to collaborate and develop an interdisciplinary design approach that addresses functionality, safety, aesthetics and quality of life, and adaptability to future and varied functions. The 700 contributions cover a wide range of topics, from more traditional subjects connected to technical challenges of design and construction of underground works, with emphasis on innovation in tunneling engineering, to less conventional and archetypically Italian themes such as archaeology, architecture, and art. The book has the following main themes: Archaeology, Architecture and Art in underground construction; Environment sustainability in underground construction; Geological and geotechnical knowledge and requirements for project implementation; Ground improvement in underground constructions; Innovation in underground engineering, materials and equipment; Long and deep tunnels; Public communication and awareness; Risk management, contracts and financial aspects; Safety in underground construction; Strategic use of underground space for resilient cities; Urban tunnels. Tunnels and Underground Cities: Engineering and Innovation meet Archaeology, Architecture and Art is a valuable reference text for tunneling specialists, owners, engineers, architects and others involved in underground planning, design and building around the world, and for academics who are interested in underground constructions and geotechnics.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Written by three of the top professionals in the turfgrass field, Managing Turfgrass Pests, Second Edition brings together hundreds of solutions and best practices to help you manage turfgrass weeds, diseases, and insects more effectively. Since the publication of the bestselling first edition, advances in pest-resistant turfgrass cultivars and pest control products have led to significant changes in the ways pests are managed. This revised and updated second edition reinforces those management tactics that are still relevant and covers new approaches that have been introduced since the first edition. The book discusses the concept of integrated pest management, incorporating cultural, biological, and chemical control measures. In particular, the authors emphasize the philosophy of minimizing pests through well-defined and well-implemented cultural systems. Rather than simply relying on a pesticide solution for control, they explain how to fine-tune cultural practices to better address the question of why the pest is present in the first place. Once these cultural practices are in place, any pesticide that is still required will be much more effective at controlling the pest. New in This Edition Revised and updated descriptions of economically important turfgrass pests Revised and updated cultural approaches to turfgrass pest management Revised and updated biological methods of turfgrass pest management Revised and updated chemical control of turfgrass pests More than 200 new color illustrations Packed with photographs, this full-color book provides updated information on best practices and control measures for turfgrass pest management. It also explains how to integrate various management strategies to ensure quality and functional turf. Throughout, the authors offer practical recommendations to help you optimize the competitiveness of your turfgrass against the pests that inevitably become part of any ecosystem.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The ability to predict the potential damage to buildings accurately and to have confidence in the chosen protective measures is of increasing importance for the viability of urban tunnelling. The Jubilee Line Extension Project (JLEP) presented a unique opportunity to capture reliable field measurements of the effects of tunnelling on a wide range of buildings. Building response to tunnelling: Case studies from the Jubilee Line Extension, London is the result of this work. Volume 1 describes the relevant part of the JLEP, the methods of settlement prediction and building damage assessment used on the project, and the objectives of the research. Further chapters provide accounts of the geology and historical development of more of the case study buildings (between Green Park and Canada Water stations of the JLE route). Full transcriptions are included of the before-the-event and independent best practice predictions of surface and at-depth ground movements at two greenfield sites and the settlement of four buildings, which were made specially for the research. The concluding chapter of Volume 1, written by Professor John Burland, presents the overall findings of the research to date. Volume 2 presents, in their geographical sequence, the twenty-seven case studies; from Green Park in the west to London Bridge, and then eastward to Canada Water station. These case studies include two instrumented greenfield sites and several examples of prestigious buildings in London's west end that were protected by compensation grouting. The case studies present descriptions of the buildings, the works that affected them and measurements made to record their response. This valuable and informative two volume book has been written by the experts who participated in the research and is generously illustrated with numerous line drawings, graphs, pictures and maps. Building response to tunnelling: Case studies from the jubilee Line Extension, London will be essential reading to tunnelling and geotechnical engineers and all those who have an interest in this successful and interesting underground project.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tunnel construction is expensive when compared to the construction of other engineering structures. As such, there is always the need to develop more sophisticated and effective methods of construction. There are many long and large tunnels with various purposes in the world, especially for highways, railways, water conveyance, and energy production. Tunnels can be designed effectively by means of two and three-dimensional numerical models. Ground–structure interaction is one of the significant factors acting on economic and safe design. This book presents recent data on tunnel engineering to improve the theory and practice of the construction of underground structures. It provides an overview of tunneling technology and includes chapters that address analytical and numerical methods for rock load estimation and design support systems and advances in measurement systems for underground structures. The book discusses the empirical, analytical, and numerical methods of tunneling practice worldwide.
