Overview for Soil Engineering: In Theory and Practice: Geotechnical Testing and Instrumentation, Volume 2
The authors are pleased to present the second edition of this book on "Geotechnical Testing and Instrumentation" which constitutes the second volume of the well-known treatise on Soil Engineering in Theory and Practice written originally by the senior author only.
Eight new chapters are added in this edition to the already existing 43 chapters of the first edition. One chapter on block vibration test describes the field determination of a few dynamic properties of soil. The other seven chapters are on rock testing for the determination of tensile strength, uniaxial compressive strength, triaxial compressive strength, direct shear strength, slake durability index, point load strength index and rock lumps strength. The chapters are well illustrated with figures and plates and the step-by step procedures give the book a practical orientation to be highly appreciated by soil and geotechnical engineers who are actually associated with testing work.
