Summary and Info
The most up-to-date guide to construction dewatering and groundwater control In the past dozen years, the methods of analyzing and treating groundwater conditions have vastly improved. The Third Edition of Construction Dewatering and Groundwater Control, reflecting the most current technology and practices, is a timely and much-needed overview of this rapidly changing field. Illustrated with hundreds of new figures and photographs and including numerous detailed case histories, the Third Edition of Construction Dewatering and Groundwater Control is a comprehensive and valuable reference for both students and practicing engineers alike. Drawing on real-world experience, the authors lead the reader through all facets of the theory and practice of this fascinating and often complex engineering discipline. Discussion includes: Dozens of case histories demonstrating various groundwater control practices and lessons learned in groundwater control and work performed Detailed methods of controlling groundwater by use of conventional dewatering methods as well as vertical barrier, grouted cutoff, and frozen ground techniques Contracting practices and conflict resolution methods that will help minimize disputes Alternatives and effective practices for handling and treating contaminated groundwater Innovations in equipment and materials that improve the performance and efficiency of groundwater control systems Practices and procedures for success in artificial recharge Groundwater modeling to simulate and plan dewatering projects Inclusion of dual U.S. customary and metric units throughout Construction Dewatering and Groundwater Control is an indispensable tool for all engineering and construction professionals searching for the most up-to-date coverage of groundwater control for various purposes, the modern ways to identify and analyze site-specific situations, and the modern tools available to control them.Content: Chapter 1 Groundwater in Construction (pages 1–9): Chapter 2 The Geology of Soils (pages 10–21): Chapter 3 Soils and Water (pages 22–51): Chapter 4 Hydrology of the Ideal Aquifer (pages 52–60): Chapter 5 Characteristics of Natural Aquifers (pages 61–65): Chapter 6 Dewatering Design Using Analytical Methods (pages 66–83): Chapter 7 Groundwater Modeling Using Numerical Methods (pages 84–110): Chapter 8 Piezometers for Groundwater Measurement and Monitoring (pages 111–120): Chapter 9 Pumping Tests (pages 121–140): Chapter 10 Surface Hydrology (pages 141–151): Chapter 11 Geotechnical Investigation for Dewatering (pages 152–184): Chapter 12 Pump Theory (pages 185–194): Chapter 13 Groundwater Chemistry, Bacteriology, and Fouling of Dewatering Systems (pages 195–221): Chapter 14 Contaminated Groundwater (pages 222–237): Chapter 15 Piping Systems (pages 238–244): Chapter 16 Choosing a Method of Groundwater Control (pages 245–258): Chapter 17 Sumps, Drains, and Open Pumping (pages 259–266): Chapter 18 Deep Well Systems (pages 267–306): Chapter 19 Wellpoint Systems (pages 307–335): Chapter 20 Ejector Systems and Other Methods (pages 336–357): Chapter 21 Groundwater Cutoff Structures (pages 358–409): Chapter 22 Grouting Methods (pages 410–490): Chapter 23 Dewatering and Groundwater Control for Soft Ground Tunneling (pages 491–507): Chapter 24 Ground Freezing (pages 508–538): Chapter 25 Artificial Recharge (pages 539–555): Chapter 26 Electrical Design for Dewatering Systems (pages 556–571): Chapter 27 Long?term Dewatering Systems (pages 572–576): Chapter 28 Dewatering Costs (pages 577–583): Chapter 29 Dewatering Specifications, Allocation of Risk, Dispute Avoidance, and Resolution of Disputes (pages 584–596):
