About this title


The book provides a valuable guide to the evaluation and understanding of ground and environmental conditions of sites and their surrounds. This is done through a series of annotated block models and supporting photographs of common geological and geomorphological situations around the world, with basic text explanations and information on each principal block diagram and its annotated photographs. Ground conditions depend on the climatic, geological and geomorphological history of the site and its surrounding area. In ground investigation, ground engineering, design and construction, a preliminary study of the local environment (including climate), the landforms and the geomorphological processes creating and modifying the local landscape is thus required, as well as informed detailed knowledge of the soils and geology, their distribution, properties and engineering behaviour. Geomodels in Engineering Geology outlines the world's climatic and morphological zones and the changes such environments bring upon the ground.It deals with fundamental aspects of surface soils and geology in relation to their engineering behavior and guides the way that ground investigation can be developed to provide appropriate information needed for design and construction of a project - augmented by case histories and experience of practical problems.


'This is an unusual and welcome contribution to the engineering geology literature. ...this is a welcome monograph illustrated with some truly splendid block diagram'. Environmental & Engineering Geoscience -------------------- 'This is a great book!! Messrs Fookes et al. have produced a book that is of practical use in the identification, analysis and investigation of geotechnical projects over a vast range of site conditions. ... This book will be of practical use to persons studying geology and geotechnical engineering. It will be of assistance to practising engineering geologists and especially geotechnical engineers. No Geotechnical office should be without it'. Australian Geomechanics -------------------- 'Almost every page is dominated by beautiful hand-drawn block models or stunning photographs of some of the world's best geology. ... It provides a guide to worldwide ground conditions, with basic text explanations and information on each principal block diagram and its annotated photographs'. NZ Geomechanics News -------------------- '...I can see myself browsing it for a long time to come. Frequent block diagrams illustrate and shed light on the problems likely to be encountered and the text further enlightens the enquiring mind'. Dorset Geologists Association -------------------- `...beautifully illustrated and provides a good introduction to the use of geological models in an engineering context' Proceedings of the Geologists' Association
