وصف كتب مصر
Now in full colour, the third edition of this well established book provides a
readable and highly illustrated overview of the aspects of geology that are
most significant to civil engineers.
Sections in the book include those devoted to the main rock types, weathering,
ground investigation, rock mass strength, failures of old mines, subsidence on
peats and clays, sinkholes on limestone and chalk, water in landslides, slope
stabilization and understanding ground conditions. The roles of both natural
and man-induced processes are assessed, and this understanding is developed
into an appreciation of the geological environments potentially hazardous to
civil engineering and construction projects. For each style of difficult
ground, available techniques of site investigation and remediation are reviewed
Each topic is presented as a double page spread with a careful mix of text and
diagrams, with tabulated reference material on parameters such as bearing
strength of soils and rocks. This new edition has been comprehensively updated
and covers the entire spectrum of topics of interest for both students and
practitioners in the field of civil engineering.
