Cone Penetration Testing: Methods and Interpretation discusses the history, applications, and development of the cone penetration test procedures and related test procedures. The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 deals with the cone penetration test proper - its general and historical outline, equipment and their accuracy and calibration, the use of the test results, and its parameters in different kinds of soils and materials. Part 2 covers the role and use of piezocones and its use for the assessment of soil. The text is recommended for engineers and geologists who would like to know m

Engineering and health in compressed air work : proceedings of the international conference, Oxford, September 1992 by F. M Jardine( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the record of the conference held in Oxford in 1992 organised by CIRIA, and co-sponsored by the Health and Safety Executive, the British Tunnelling Society and the Medical Research Council's Hyperbaric Sciences Panel. Containing keynote lectures and refereed papers on bone necrosis, decompression illness, engineering design and construction, and the occupational health and safety of using compressed air and hyperbaric techniques in below-ground construction works, the book consolidates international medical and engineering knowledge and experience on the use of these necessary construction techniques, and looks to how they can be safely used in the future. Compressed air and other hyperbaric techniques are being adapted to natch advanced engineering capabilities in caisson and tunnelling excavation. In so doing collaboration between engineers, medical practitioners and health adn safety professionals is becoming increasingly important. These conference proceedings demonstrate not only that this longstanding collaboration is full of vigour, but also that there are many questions to be tackled.; Records of ten discussion sessions are included, and a special fearute is a glossary of engineering, diving and medical terms
