An introduction to the investigation, extraction, processing and specification of natural soil and rock materials, with an emphasis on why particular material properties are sought and how they may be modified. The book covers the full range of soil and rock construction materials including crushed stone, sand and gravel, natural and prepared roadbase, earth fill and rock fill, heavy clays, armour stone and dimension stone. Environmental aspects of quarrying, such as the use of waste materials, blast monitoring and pit reclamation, are studied in detail. New developments are discussed such as the trend towards fewer but larger quarries, the employment of by-products, and the need for upgrading marginal materials. The use of plenty of diagrams and photos, and a clear writing style, make this an easy book to follow and extensive reference lists in each chapter guide the reader further into the more specialist topics.

Civil engineers, mining engineers and engineering geologists require a working knowledge of the engineering properties and behaviour of the different soil and rock types, and this is not provided in the standard texts on soil and on rock mechanics. This book provides extensive data on individual soil and rock types and deals in some depth with their composition, texture, degree of weathering and presence of fissures or discontinuities. It also considers the description and classification of soils and rocks. The Fourth Edition has been extensively revised and enlarged by fifty per cent, with four new chapters on ? Silts, Loess and Brickearth ? Igneous and Metamorphic Rock ? Arenaceous and Argillaceous Rocks and ? Carbonate and Evaporitic Rocks. The latter three chapters deal not only with the geomechanical properties and behaviour of these rocks but also with their durability. The book also considers properties in terms of construction materials (e.g. building stone, bricks, aggregate) and mentions methods of dealing with problem soils, groundwater etc. The book will be of particular value to professionals in geotechnical and geological engineering and also to senior students.

Volcanic rocks and soils show a peculiar mechanical behaviour at both laboratory and in-situ scale due to their typical structural characters. Volcanic rocks and soils contains keynote lectures and papers from the International Workshop held in Ischia (Italy), 24-25 September 2015. The book deals with recent developments and advancements, as well as case histories, in the geotechnical characterization and engineering applications related to volcanic formations. It covers a variety of themes, including: • Geotechnical characterization under both static and cyclic/dynamic loading conditions, with special regard to structural properties at different scales (microstructural features; field and laboratory characterization; construction materials); • Geotechnical aspects of natural hazards (slope stability; seismic risk); • Geotechnical problems of engineering structures (foundations; embankments; excavations and tunnels). Volcanic Rocks and Soils is of interest to scientists and practitioners in the fields of rock and soil mechanics, geotechnical engineering, engineering geology and geology.

Soils, rocks and concrete are the principal materials a civil engineer encounters in practice. This book deals with the material analogies, their implications in property characterization, giving attention to similar as well as dissimilar methods in respect of each of these three materials. It provides an integrated, systematic approach for realistic assessment of engineering properties of soils, rocks and concrete. Geotechnical engineers, civil engineers and materials scientists will be interested in this volume.

Ideal for undergraduates of geotechnical engineering for civil engineers, this established textbook sets out the basic theories of soil mechanics in a clear and straightforward way; combining both classical and critical state theories and giving students a good grounding in the subject which will last right through into a career as a geotechnical engineer. The subject is broken down into discrete topics which are presented in a series of short, focused chapters with clear and accessible text that develops from the purely theoretical to discussing practical applications. Soil behaviour is described by relatively simple equations with clear parameters while a number of worked examples and simple experimental demonstrations are included to illustrate the principles involved and aid reader understanding.

A generation of construction-management students has learned from the easy-to-follow, understandable material in Soils in Construction. By keeping math simple and emphasizing construction operations and applications over engineering theory, the authors have created an ideal resource for non-technical, management-focused courses. Students interested in the field applications of soils will gain the knowledge they need to interact confidently with geotechnical engineers in their careers. The book’s extensive discussion of soil materials in the first five chapters is supplemented by an appendix describing testing methods that can easily be adapted to the hands-on component of a course. The remaining seven chapters cover the role that soil materials play in various aspects of construction contracting. Every chapter ends with problems presenting students with the kinds of scenarios they’ll face in the field.

A step-by-step text on the basic tests performed in soil mechanics, Introduction to Soil Mechanics Laboratory Testing provides procedural aids and elucidates industry standards. It also covers how to properly present data and document results. Containing numerical examples and figures, the information presented is based on American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards, and US Army Corps of Engineers engineering manuals. The authors discuss the different methods of in situ field methods and ex situ laboratory methods of soil description and identification. They present equations for the physical properties of soil and laboratory methods of soil classification. They also discuss tests for the interaction of soil and water, and hydraulic conductivity and consolidation. These tests produce information useful in the identification and characterization of soil samples and their engineering behaviors. A comprehensive resource, the book describes the evaluation of physical properties of soils, including mass, weight, unit weight, and mass density of the soil mass and its component phases. These properties are then expanded to define a number of weight and volumetric relationships. The book also discusses tests used in the evaluation of the density-water content relationships in soils and in the evaluation of the quality of compaction operations. These features and more make this book an excellent guide for testing soils.
