Identifying and classifying rock masses and soil formations allows reasonable estimation of their characteristic properties. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered "Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook", "Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations" provides a basis for recognizing, identifying, and classifying the various rock and soil types.
With clear, concise, and hands-on guidance, this book describes these rock and soil types in terms of their origin, mode of occurrence, and structural features in situ and presents the typical characteristics that are of engineering significance. It also explains the elements that affect surface and subsurface water engineering in terms of controlling floods, erosion, subsurface flow, and seepage, as well as for water conservation.
Supplying important correlations used to estimate engineering and geologic properties, the book presents correlations for intact rock, rock masses, and soil formations throughout the chapters and condenses this information into a convenient summary table in an appendix. Eliminate the need to search through narrow volumes or large handbooks with "Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations: A Field Guide for Geotechnical Engineers", a convenient and complete guide to the techniques you need.
H83 Unknown. Geotechnical engineering investigation handbook . The second edition updates this pioneering reference for the 21st century, including developments that have occurred in the twenty years since the first edition was published, such as: remotely sensed satellite imagery; global positioning systems GPS ; geophysical exploration; cone penetrometer testing; earthquake studies; digitizing of data recording and retrieval; field and laboratory testing and instrumentation; and, use of the Internet for data retrieval.
The author relies on his 50 plus years of professional experience, emphasizing identification and description of the elements of the geologic environment, the data required for analysis and design of the engineering works, and procuring the data. By using a practical approach to problem solving, this book helps engineers consider geological phenomena in terms of the degree of their hazard and the potential risk of their occurrence.

The topics covered range from conventional saturated soil mechanics to unsaturated soil behavior, rock mechanics, hydrogeology and geosynthetics.
The book deals with pavements, shallow and deep foundations, embankments, slopes, retaining walls, buried structures, dynamics and earthquakes, contaminant transport, groundwater monitoring, and the containment, treatment and remediation of contaminated sites. Risk assessment and risk-based management for both geotechnical and geoenvironmental applications are discussed.
The book is intended as a handbook both for individuals requiring an introduction to a given topic and practitioners and researchers already knowledgeable in the field but seeking a quick reference to refresh their memory regarding the most recent techniques and guidance to other places to look for more information. The various chapters of the book have been extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader who opens the book at the section most relevant to their current needs in finding other relevant material in this book.
The 50 contributors to the 30 chapters of the book are all recognized experts in their field - from industry and the academic world. G Available. Geotechnical engineers portable handbook .
