CHOICE Review

This book, part of the "Springer Series in Geomechanics and Geoengineering," is an encyclopedic assemblage of basic and practical science on state-of-the-art engineering technology dealing with the behavior of earth materials subject to earthquakes and derivative effects. Major topics include soil mechanics, earthquake loading, stress and strain models, seismic faults, landslides, and hydrologic effects. Several chapters relate to liquefaction--its geology, mechanisms, tests and predictions, and mitigations. Because of the work's vast coverage of earthquake engineering and to assist readers of different levels, Towhata (Univ. of Tokyo) has classified the more than 400 sections into elementary, advanced, and miscellaneous topics. Extensive references follow each of the 27 chapters. An unusually fine aspect of this attractive volume is the inclusion of copious colored photographs of the wide-range effects of earthquakes on terrain and engineered projects. Hundreds of graphs, charts, and mathematical relationships are skillfully integrated with the text and photographs. This volume is truly monumental. It should be in the libraries of all geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections. T. L. T. Grose emeritus, Colorado School of Mines
