Engineering geology. Summary "An Introduction to Geotechnical Processes covers the elements of ground treatment and improvement from the control of groundwater, drilling and grouting to ground anchors and electro-chemical hardening. The ground investigation necessary for each process, the likely improvement in the strength of treated ground and appropriate testing methods are also highlighted.
Each subject is presented as a double page spread with a careful mix of text, tables and diagrams. It covers every topic of interest to graduate and postgraduate civil engineering students in this field as well as being relevant to engineering geologists and practising engineers. Contents 1. Ground investigation 2. Decision-making charts 3. Groundwater control - general considerations 4.
Groundwater control - removal methods 5. Groundwater control - exclusion methods 6. Ground improvement 7.
