Underground Engineering for Sustainable Urban Development by National Research Council,Division on Earth and Life Studies,Board on Earth Sciences and Resources,Committee on Geological and Geotechnical Engineering,Committee on Underground Engineering for Sustainable Development Summary

For thousands of years, the underground has provided humans refuge, useful resources, physical support for surface structures, and a place for spiritual or artistic expression. More recently, many urban services have been placed underground. Over this time, humans have rarely considered how underground space can contribute to or be engineered to maximize its contribution to the sustainability of society. As human activities begin to change the planet and population struggle to maintain satisfactory standards of living, placing new infrastructure and related facilities underground may be the most successful way to encourage or support the redirection of urban development into sustainable patterns. Well maintained, resilient, and adequately performing underground infrastructure, therefore, becomes an essential part of sustainability, but much remains to be learned about improving the sustainability of underground infrastructure itself. At the request of the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Research Council (NRC) conducted a study to consider sustainable underground development in the urban environment, to identify research needed to maximize opportunities for using underground space, and to enhance understanding among the public and technical communities of the role of underground engineering in urban sustainability. Underground Engineering for Sustainable Urban Development explains the findings of researchers and practitioners with expertise in geotechnical engineering, underground design and construction, trenchless technologies, risk assessment, visualization techniques for geotechnical applications, sustainable infrastructure development, life cycle assessment, infrastructure policy and planning, and fire prevention, safety and ventilation in the underground. This report is intended to inform a future research track and will be of interest to a broad audience including those in the private and public sectors engaged in urban and facility planning and design, underground construction, and safety and security.

Deep Excavations in Soil by John Endicott Summary

The book describes the theory and current practices for design of earth lateral support for deep excavations in soil. It addresses basic principles of soil mechanics and explains how these principles are embodied in design methods including hand calculations. It then introduces the use of numerical methods including the fundamental “beam on springs” models, and then more sophisticated computer programmes which can model soil as a continuum in two or three dimensions. Constitutive relationships are introduced that are in use for representing the behaviour of soil including a strain hardening model, and a Cam Clay model including groundwater flow and coupled consolidation. These methods are illustrated by reference to practical applications and case histories from the author’s direct experience, and some of the pitfalls that can occur are discussed. Theory and design are strongly tied to construction practice, with emphasis on monitoring the retaining structures and movement of surrounding ground and structures, in the context of safety and the Observational Method. Examples are presented for conventional “Bottom-up” and “Top-down” sequences, along with hybrid sequences giving tips on how to optimise the design and effect economies of cost and time for construction. It is written for practising geotechnical, civil and structural engineers, and especially for senior and MSc students.

Manuel des constructions rurales by H. Duvinage Summary

« L’architecture est, après l’agriculture, le premier et le plus utile des arts. Chercher à en tracer l’origine, la marche et les progrès, ce serait redire ce qui a été écrit ayant nous ; ce serait aussi nous éloigner du but de cet ouvrage. Ce manuel étant essentiellement élémentaire, toute dissertation scientifique doit en être repoussée, car il ne faut pas oublier qu’il est destiné aux élèves des écoles d’agriculture, ainsi qu’aux propriétaires, et que les uns et les autres doivent y trouver particulièrement des notions premières qui les mettent à même de diriger les différentes constructions qu’ils peuvent avoir à édifier. Ainsi, dépouillant toute prétention à la science, nous excluons de ce traité les termes scientifiques qui pourraient ne pas être compris. C’est presque toujours de l’ignorance où l’on est de ces premiers éléments que résultent les erreurs en constructions, si communes depuis quelque temps, la fausse évaluation des dépenses, les étagements de bâtiments à peine achevés, et, quelquefois, la ruine des personnes qui se livrent à des entrepreneurs sans expérience, lesquels, ne possédant pas la connaissance pratique de leur art, compromettent les intérêts qui leur sont si imprudemment confiés. Cet ouvrage sera utile aux personnes auxquelles il est destiné, en ce que, sans avoir sondé toutes les profondeurs de l’art, elles pourront, en le consultant, diriger avec succès les ouvriers qu’elles auraient à employer, utiliser des matériaux qui seraient perdus, éviter beaucoup d’erreurs et de doubles emplois, et même, dans certains cas, composer elles-mêmes les plans et l’ensemble des dépendances rurales, au moyen des proportions des différentes parties des constructions que nous indiquerons. » Fruit d’une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.
