9780136141235: Soil Properties: Testing, Measurement, and Evaluation

This laboratory book reflects the most commonly used methods of both field and laboratory testing to evaluate soil properties for engineering purposes.  Designed to conform to the latest information from the American Society for Testing and Materials, it familiarizes students with the standards that practicing engineers and architects cite in contracts and specifications. Each test includes a definition, scope, and objective and step-by-step procedures, data, and calculations sequences. Typical values for most tests are included, as well as completely worked numerical examples. This edition continues its simple and direct style and features updated testing procedures and a new chapter on in-field testing and soil exploration.
