Emphasising the link between engineering geology and geotechnical engineering, Steve Hencher takes a broad and fresh view of the tasks faced by engineering geologists. He outlines the fundamental role of engineering geology in civil engineering projects and assesses the various tools which an engineering geologist brings to such a project.This book covers a range of roles and challenges which face an engineering geologist:Outlines of engineering geology modelsSite investigation and testingGeotechnical parameters and basic designDealing with hazardsAvoiding unexpected ground conditionsIllustrated with a number of case studies and providing reference tables of parameters and properties. This reference is ideal for practising engineering geologist s and MSc level students of engineering geology.
