Distributed in the US by VNR with ISBN 0-442-31337-3. The focus is on the effect of geology on the stability and settlement of rock foundations. While the intact rock may be strong, defects in the rock such as faults, joints, and cavities, and the deterioration of rock with time, will have a significant influence on foundation permanence. The methods of detecting such defects and accounting for them in design that are described here are applicable to high rise buildings, bridges, dams, and structures subject to uplift and overturning loads.
