Geotechnical Engineering for Environmental Engineers

Geotechnical Engineering for Environmental Engineers

This book will include simplified, yet comprehensive details of geotechnical engineering issues that are important to environmental engineers. It will explain how to analyze and interpret numerous practical geotechnical engineering problems. It will differ from other geotechnical engineering books in that it will be written specifically for environmental engineers, and deal less with aspects that apply more to civil engineers. Soil mechanics and hydraulic theories will be simplified and supported with extensive numerical problems pertinent to environmental engineering applications. It will also include several environmental engineering case studies throughout, such as landfill design, etc.

Roadwork: Theory and Practice

Roadwork: Theory and Practice

Roadwork Theory and Practice, now in its sixth edition, gives the essential information needed by every road worker, highway technician, incorporated, graduate or chartered engineer, not only by explaining the theory of road construction and its associated activities, but by illustrating its application with practical working methods that are in use in everyday engineering practice. As such, it successfully bridges the gap so often found between civil engineering theory and the day-to-day work of a highways engineer.
