Overview


Soil Mechanics Laboratory Manual, Fifth Edition is designed for a laboratory course in soil mechanics (also called geotechnical engineering) that commonly accompanies a lecture course in the same subject. The book is designed for junior-level (third-year) undergraduate courses in civil engineering departments and includes laboratory procedures essential to understanding the properties of soils and their behavior under stress and strain. Features · Includes sample calculations and graphs relevant to each laboratory test · Supplies blank tables (that accompany each test) for laboratory use and report preparation · Contains a new chapter on soil classification (Chapter 9) · Provides two useful appendices: Appendix A: Weight-Volume Relationships Appendix B: Data Sheets for Laboratory Experiments · Offers a list of relevant references
