Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst (Geotechnical Special Publication)
- Publish Date: 2008-09-02
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Multiple Authors
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 71 papers concerning the unique problems and innovative solutions surrounding karst terrain. The technical program for the Karst 2008 conference struck a balance between the environmental and engineering aspects of working in karst and sinkhole-prone areas. It reflects a distinct shift to integrated approaches for investigations and the expanding range of tools that are available to engineers and scientists. These papers were presented at the Eleventh Multidisciplinary Conference held September 22 26, 2008, in Tallahassee, Florida. Topics discussed include: Formation of karst and sinkholes, Application of geophysics, GIS morphing and computer databases, Unique investigation techniques, Risk assessment, Hydrology of Woodville Karst Plain, Water management, monitoring, and remediation, modeling in karst, Groundwater tracing, Planning and regulation, Foundation design and construction, Sinkhole mitigation and repair, Grouting techniques, and Engineering man s infrastructure. Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst will be valuable to geotechnical engineers, environmental engineers, and all those involved in sinkholes and the impacts of karst.
