Description

Engineering Geology is designed as a textbook for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering geology, applied geology, mining, and civil engineering. It will also serve as a reference text for civil engineers and professional geologists. The book begins with a discussion on basic geological aspects related to rocks and minerals, geological structures, soil formation and classification, underground water, aerial photo study and remote sensing, and geophysical and drilling exploration. This is followed by important engineering geology topics such as soil and rock mechanics, methods of site investigation for civil engineering projects with detailed coverage on dams, reservoirs, tunnels, powerhouses, bridges, canals, power channels, and flumes. Some of the other important topics that are discussed in the book include the search for construction materials, treatment of geological defects, assessment and mitigation of natural hazards, and evaluation of karstic limestone terrains for reservoir projects.
