The book "Stahlbetonbau" was published. It is the successor of the well-known Jahrbuch Stahlbetonbau and thus a standard work in civil engineering. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Ziegler and Dr.-Ing. Benjamin Aulbach published a chapter on the subject of excavation pits together with Dipl.-Ing. Ulrich Barth. Both the design and selection of the shoring type as well as the calculation and verification of excavation pits are discussed.
