Manual of Applied Geology for Engineers Summary

Manual of Applied Geology for Engineers by Institution of Civil Engineers

All engineering structures react with the ground, and most structures make use of materials extracted from the earth. While an engineer cannot be expected to be also an expert geologist, he must have a working knowledge of the subject if his structures are to be economically designed, safely built and safely used. He must also be able to recognise where and when he needs the advice of a specialist. A Manual of Applied Geology is designed as a guide for practising engineers. A team of distinguished engineers and scientists has been assembled to present the basic information which an engineer needs and to explain how best to use this information to deal with problems in his work. Chaptes cover general theory, Formation of rocks, their properties and identification, landforms and soils, geophysical methods, maps and other information sources. the particular problems of terrain evaluation, site selection and investigation and common construction problems (including groundwater control, stability, foundations and underground work) are examined and there are chapters on materials and hydrogeology. Aimed principally at the engineer who is meeting geological problems in his everyday work, this generously illustrated volume will also be useful as an introduction to the subject for first degree engineering students
