About this book

This volume deals with two topics increasingly important to the engineering practice, natural hazards and conservation of cultural heritage. It investigates solutions which involve the coupling of different phenomena taking place in multiphase porous media such as soil, rock, building stones and snow.

This book covers a range of topics that are of increasing importance in engineering practice: natural hazards, pollution, and environmental protection through good practice. (, 10 February 2011)
