Description - Groundwater Lowering in Construction by P. M. Cashman
Many engineering construction projects involve excavations into water bearing soil. Specialist knowledge of soils and drainage techniques is therefore required to ensure that projects run smoothly. Groundwater Lowering in Construction outlines the practical aspects of groundwater lowering which are of assistance for the successful and economical completion of construction projects. Topics covered in the book include permeability, groundwater effects on the stability of excavations, methods for the control of surface water and groundwater, design of groundwater lowering systems, and dewatering systems. Case studies from around the world illustrate methods and applications of water abstraction. this book is the definitive reference for the practising engineer, engineering geologist, and advanced civil engineering or engineering geology student dealing with below ground excavations and constructions.
