About this book

Integrating information from several areas of engineering geology, hydrogeology, geotechnical engineering, this book addresses the general field of groundwater from an engineering perspective. It covers geological engineering as well as hydrogeological and environmental geological problems caused by groundwater engineering. It includes 10 chapters, i.e., basic groundwater theory, parameter calculation in hydrogeology, prevention of geological problem caused by groundwater, construction dewatering, wellpoint dewatering methods, dewatering wells and drilling, groundwater dewatering in foundation-pit engineering, groundwater engineering in bedrock areas, numerical simulation in groundwater engineering, groundwater corrosion on concrete and steel. Based on up-to-date literature, it describes recent developments and presents several case studies with examples and problems. It is an essential reference source for industrial and academic researchers working in the groundwater field and can also serve as lecture-based course material providing fundamental information and practical tools for both senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in fields of geology engineering, hydrogeology, geotechnical engineering or to conduct related research.

About the authors

Prof.Tang is an outstanding professor in Tongji University in the area of urban geological engineering and engineering environmental effect; and urban land subsidence engineering. He is involved in the research and teaching works of engineering geology, hydrology geology and environmental geology, etc for over 20 years. Currently, his researching interests lie in engineering land subsidence caused by urban high-dense buildings in soft area; environmental problems induced by dewatering of foundation pit; dynamic response of soft clay surrounding subway tunnel under cyclic traffic loading; the constitutive model of soft clay after freeze-thaw after artificial ground freezing method in subway; dynamic coupling mechanism analysis during water-soil losses in Karst area. Additionally, he serves as committee member of engineering geology, environmental geology and hydrogeology in Geological Society; He is also the director of hydro-geological committee in Shanghai Geological Society.
