Overview

This unique manual guides users step-by-step through the hows and whys of the most commonly used testing methods in civil engineering practice—those based on the latest American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The book uses a consistent "Procedure," "Data," and "Calculations" format for each test; contains completely worked examples showing the computations required for the analysis and evaluation of the test data collected; discusses what data, results, and other information should be presented in the test report; and explains what the test results will be used for in practical engineering problems. Blank data reporting forms and graph papers are provided for most tests, and an accompanying CD-ROM contains state-of-the-art, user-friendly software for compiling test data, performing calculations, plotting curves, and obtaining final results. For individuals interested in a construction or civil engineering technology career.

Preface

The preface to the first edition of this book, expresses our purpose in Writing the book and describes 11 specific features of it. We believe these features are still valid for this edition. We have updated the book to conform with the very latest information from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

We wish to express our sincere appreciation to Carlos G. Bell of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte and to W Kenneth Humphries of the University of South Carolina, who read our original manuscript and offered many helpful suggestions. Also, we thank Renda Gwaltney, who typed the entire original manuscript.

We thank our colleague, Professor Alan Stadler of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, for reviewing Chapter 15 for us. We also express our appreciation to our colleague, Professor Ambrose "Bo" Barry of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, for his assistance in preparing the CD and the CD Installation Tips at the back of the book. These allow the user to more easily analyze data collected in a laboratory experiment.

As mentioned in the preface to the first edition, we believe the features cited for that edition, as well as the expansion and improvements provided in succeeding editions, distinguish our book from other soils laboratory manuals and make it more helpful and more useful. We hope you will enjoy using it, and we would be pleased to receive your comments, suggestions, and/or criticisms.
