Foundations of engineering geology by Tony Waltham( Book )

52 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 and evaluated. 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 of Foundations of Engineering Geology has been comprehensively updated and covers the entire spectrum of topics of interest for both students and practitioners in the field of civil engineering."--Jacket

"Sinkholes and Subsidence is a comprehensive and accessible source of information about one of the most difficult types of ground conditions encountered by civil engineers - cavernous karst. Its aim is to provide an understanding about ground cavities, subsurface processes, sinkhole collapses and ground subsidence, thus helping construction engineers to design structures that will stand safely on this type of ground."--Jacket

Areas of limestone outcrop are widely distributed throughout England and Wales and this is reflected in their rich diversity of karst landscapes and cave systems. Indeed, some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Britain are karstic, and have provided geomorphologists with classic areas of study. <br/> As well as a general description of the nature and origin of karsts and caves, this volume contains descriptions of almost one hundred Sites of Special Scientific Interest from the internationally renowned glaciokarst of the Yorkshire Dales, the Northern Pennines, Peak District, Mendips, Wales and other areas
