9780134410319: Soils in Construction

For introductory geotechnical/soils courses in construction technology or civil engineering technology programs.

Designed especially for those students who will probably NOT be taking further courses in soil mechanics or foundation engineering, this text uses only simple mathematics and an emphasis on applications to explore the nature of soils and how various soil materials may influence certain construction operations. An appendix of 11 laboratory testing exercises provides hands-on practice with basic principles and procedures.

Review:


"The best feature of this textbook is its focus on construction applications. This textbook does a good job of balancing the engineering principles with the construction processes in the study of soils." — Greg Ohrn, Northern Arizona University




"The strength of the text is that it presents technical material in a very understandable way to students who are more oriented towards non-technical, more managerial subjects." — Constantine A. Ciesieiski, East Carolina University


From the Back Cover:

A revision of the classic in the field, Soils in Construction is intended for students and professionals who are more interested in the construction management and field applications of soil technology than in the engineering theory side. The text uses simple math and applications to explore the nature of soils and how the soil materials may affect certain construction operations. An appendix of laboratory testing exercises provides hands-on practice with basic principles and procedures.

Some of the key features include:

  • Expanded overview of the geology of soils and rocks.
  • Improved classification aids for the Unified system.
  • More complete description of borrow and fill calculations.
  • Description of OSHA's requirements for trench safety and configuration.
  • New description of pile driving and driven pile design and testing.
  • Breakout of all of the examples so students can more readily follow the methods of problem solving.
  • Addition of SI units to some of the calculations.
