Cone penetration testing : methods and interpretation by A. C Meigh( Book )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Use of vegetation in civil engineering by N. J Coppin( Book )

Geophysics in engineering investigations( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The full potential of geophysics in engineering investigations is still to be realised. The many available techniques can provide important information about the ground, its mass properties, its small-scale variations, and its anomalies of structure or content. The advantage of a geophysical survey is that it enables information to be obtained for large volumes of ground that cannot be investigated by direct methods due to cost. The applications of geophysics in the characterisation Of contaminated land are still developing, but have great potential for example in the distribution and migration of pollutants in the ground and groundwater. Geophysics is still insufficiently or inappropriately used in engineering and the newer capabilities are not appreciated. This report is published in co-operation with the Geological Society and presents a logical guide through the process of using geophysical investigation methods in site characterisation. It explores the roles of geophysical, methods and, provides the back.ground to geophysics as an investigative tool. The procurement, management and reporting frameworks for a geophysical investigation are set out and the underlying science and current practices of the main techniques are explained, as well as the processes of data acquisition, handling and presentation. The different targets determinable by geophysical methods are considered in separate sections for geological, geotechnical, geo-environmental and structural engineering applications. The report concludes with recommendations for practice. --
