This manual presents recommended testing procedures for making determinations of the soil properties to be used in the design of civil works projects. It is not intended to be a text book on soils... More > testing or to supplant the judgement of design engineers in specifying procedures to satisfy the requirements of a particular project, although it has been used in basic soil mechanics courses. Test procedures included are Water Content, Unit Weights, Void Ratio, Porosity and Degree Of Saturation, Liquid and Plastic Limits, Shrinkage Limit Test, Grain-size Analysis, Compaction Tests, Permeability Tests, Consolidation Test, Swell and Swell Pressure Tests. Drained Direct Shear Test, Triaxial Compression Tests, Determination of Critical Void Ratio, Unconfined Compression Test, Modified Providence Vibrated Density Test, and Pinhole Erosion Test for Identification of Dispersive Clays.< Less
Frozen Soils By Dr. Hamdy Youssef, Ph.D., P.Eng.
eBook (PDF): $42.59
(1 Ratings)
Due to the rapid increase of engineering developments in cold regions, and the utilization of ground freezing techniques for civil and mining engineering projects worldwide, there is a need for... More > knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of frozen soils and hence the need of laboratory testing manual. The book presents detailed description of samples preparations of frozen soils for triaxial and compressibility tests. In addition, the testing procedures and data processing are presented for the following types of tests: 1. Triaxial compression; strain- rate controlled test, 2. Triaxial (and uniaxial) stress- relaxation tests with constant volume, and 3. Compressibility tests. Extensive experimental results are presented as numerical and graphics output of the author’s developed computer program FROZENSOIL.1. The book is written as a testing manual and is a mild stone contribution towards developing comprhensive standards for laboratory testing of frozen soils.< Less

This manual emphasizes the soils engineering aspects of road and airfield construction. The references give detailed information on other soils engineering topics that are discussed in general terms.... More > It also provides a discussion of the formation and characteristics of soil using the Unified System, and also information on AASHTO and the UDSA systems as well. It describes the compaction of soils and quality control, settlement and shearing resistance of soils, the movement of water through soils, frost action, and the bearing capacity of soils that serve as foundations, slopes, embankments, dikes, dams, and earth-retaining structures. This manual also describes the geologic factors that affect the properties and occurrences of natural mineral/soil construction materials used to build dams, tunnels, roads, airfields, and bridges. Finally, it has an excellent treatment of basic geology as it relates to soil mechanics, a subject not well covered in most soils texts.< Less

More > Pile Foundations and other major Civil Structures. Our manual reviews the various methods of conducting site investigations and laboratory and field testing, preliminary to project design. Covering the basics of soils identification procedures and goes on to settlement behavior, seepage, slope stability and other important subjects. Detailing some more difficult technical subjects including seismic activity and vibrations to some of the modern solutions for soils stabilization such as vibro-flotation and cement or chemical grouting methods.< Less
Soil Basics for Gardeners By David Plaisted

It can be difficult for the gardener to understand what is going on in the soil and why various recommendations are given for fertilizer, organic matter, watering, and so on. If you want to know how... More > much fertilizer to use for gardening, you will find information about cations, organic and inorganic forms of nutrients, and much other information that is of little use to the typical gardener except in interpreting soil testing results. Even getting soil tested really does not help the gardener to understand how the soil came to be in the condition it is, or why certain recommendations are given. The subject of soil quality, health, and fertility is very complex, but the material in this book, obtained from many sources, should help the gardener to have a general grasp of such topics as are necessary for a deeper understanding of good gardening practices. Material that is easy to understand and that can be obtained from many other sources, is largely omitted from this presentation.< Less
