Aggregates / Edition 3 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Geological Society Publishing House
This book is in general a well-researched, informative and useful guide to the location, sampling and testing of aggregates. If your work involves the use of aggregates, buy this book and read no further; this volume will be an essential and valuable reference that you will use for many years.
In 1989, the working party whose work had resulted in the publication of Aggregates was reconvened to revise, update and extend their report. Each chapter was reviewed by independent referees. The second and greatly improved edition, published in 1993 and reprinted in 1998, represented the distillation of a vast body of knowledge and experience held not only by the members of the working party, but also by many international experts, scientists and engineers who contributed as reviewers, referees and corresponding authors.
"...a comprehensive review of all aspects of the aggregate industry..." (Geotechnical Engineer 1995), "...a very well researched and useful guide to the location, sampling and testing of aggregates..." (Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering 1994), "...a well-written and superbly documented text on a very important but previously inadequately covered subject..."
(Engineering Geology 1994).
Owing to continued demand for this unique reference book, a group of aggregate specialists drawn from the working party was convened in 1999 in order to review and update Aggregates thoroughly forthe third edition.
