So last year at this time, I gave Santa my geoengineer’s Christmas list, but apparently I wasn’t good enough to get everything. I did get two things off my list, the new FHWA Drilled Shaft Manual, and the New FHWA MSE Wall Manual, but that’s about it. That’s like getting pink bunny PJ’s as a kid! So over the last year, I tried to be REALLY good, and this year I’ll just let last year’s list roll over with two additions:
This year’s hottest gift would be great for reading my growing library of geotechnical papers, manuals, reports and books in PDF format. I like the iBook app on my iPhone, especially being able to highlight and make notes and bookmarks. And you can read an eBook allright, but try reading a scanned PDF report or paper on that little screen, doesn’t work too well. I like the idea of having my entire library of technical papers, books and reports available at my fingertips!
And the coolest goodie on my list, the one I really want… […]
I made a conscious decision when creating GeoPrac.net to NOT include a forum or bulletin board. I feel that with my technical skills and using one of the excellent open source products out there I […]
The International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories has formally announced their second issue. Apparently when I posted about it previously, they had only two of the four papers.
This second issue contains four case histories that come with additional downloads. In particular, check out Dr. Edmund Medley’s Paper on the 2006 Hawaii Earthquakes. He has some neat photos including some in 3-D (more about his 3-D photos).
- Design Process of Deep Soil Mixed Walls for Excavation Support: Example of paper with digital data
- Effect of Dredging and Axial Load on a Berthing Structure
- Geological Engineering Reconnaissance of Damage Caused by the October 15, 2006 Hawaii Earthquakes: Example of an Online Database
- Lack of Maintenance Compromises Tunnel Structural Safety
I’m very pleased to see that the International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories has finally published their second issue. I was beginning to wonder if they would ever publish again. I was looking for a date of when that first issue was published but I couldn’t find one. But I suspect it’s been at least a year. I was sort of interested in creating a similar type of site when I was first thinking about GeoPrac, but it never worked out. But i digress. Click through for a list of the case histories and some additional goodies.
