Description:

Geology is the science of earth`s crust (lithosphere) consisting of rocks and soils. While mining and mineralogical engineers are more interested in rocks, their petrology (formation) and mineralogy, civil engineers are equally interested in soils and rocks, in their formations, and also in their properties for civil engineering design and construction. This book is so written that the subject can easily be taught by a civil engineering faculty member specialised in soil mechanics. Dexterously organized into four parts, this book in Part I (Chapters 1 to 11) deals with the formation of rocks and soils. The classification of soils, lake deposits, coastal deposits, wind deposits along with marshes and bogs are described in Part II (Chapters 12 to 20). As the book advances, it deals with the civil engineering problems connected with soils and rocks such as landslides, rock slides, mudflow, earthquakes, tsunami and other natural phenomena in Part III (Chapters 21 to 24). Finally, in Part IV (Chapters 25 to 30), this text discusses the allied subjects like the origin and nature of cyclones, rock mass classification and soil formation. Designed to serve as a textbook for the undergraduate students of civil engineering, this book is equally useful for the practising civil engineers. SALIENT FEATURES : Displays plenty of figures to clarify the concepts Includes chapter-end review exercises to enhance the problem-solving skills of the students Summary at the end of each chapter brings into focus the essence of the chapter Appendices at the end of the text supply extra information on important topics Contents: Foreword ?
