9780130930057: Soil Properties: Testing, Measurement, and Evaluation (5th Edition)

For sophomore/senior-level courses in Geotechnical Engineering or Soils and Foundation Engineering offered in Construction or Civil Engineering Technology departments. This unique lab manual guides students 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 manual 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.
