Practical Engineering Geology

Practical Engineering Geology (Applied Geotechnics) by Steve Hencher
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0415469082 | 464 pages | PDF | 8,6 MB

Steve Hencher presents a broad and fresh view on the importance of engineering geology to civil engineering projects.

provides an introduction to the way that projects are managed, designed and constructed and the ways that the engineering geologist can contribute to cost-effective and safe project achievement. The need for a holistic view of geological materials, from soil to rock, and of geological history is emphasised. Chapters address key aspects of

* Geology for engineering and ground modelling
* Site investigation and testing of geological materials
* Geotechnical parameters
* Design of slopes, tunnels, foundations and other engineering structures
* Identifying hazards
* Avoiding unexpected ground conditions
The book is illustrated throughout with case examples and should prove useful to practising engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers and to MSc level students of engineering geology and other geotechnical subjects.
