Soil Properties: Testing, Measurement, and Evaluationby Cheng Liu, Jack B. Evett
This unique manual guides users step-by-step through the hows and whys of the most commonly used testing methods in civil engineering practicethose 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.
