This text is directed at the heart of Engineering Geology where geology is used to identify potential problems arising from ground conditions. It describes how to investigate those conditions and to define an engineering response that will either avoid or reduce or even eliminate the problems revealed. The book presents the "big picture" that is so often lacking when only site details are available, but necessary for adequate engineering solutions.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The book is weighted very strongly toward the practical application of engineering geology principles and the methods generally used in gathering essential data ... and composing useful engineering reports. ... It covers geological materials, geological masses, maps, sampling techniques, field tests, organization and reporting of site investigations, and ground behavior under various conditions, including both natural and man-made disturbances. ... Summing up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, faculty, and practitioners." (C. W. Dimmick, Choice, Vol. 46 (9), May, 2009)
