Principles Of Engineering Geology is an introductory text on the applications of geology in civil and mining engineering. Geology studies the various features and phenomena of the Earth. Engineering Geology is a discipline that studies the practical application of the principles of geology as relevant to construction engineering.
Engineering geology studies those factors of the land that can interact with and affect the human made structures that are put up on it. Engineers use the principles of geology to study the soil and rock mechanics, analyze the features of the land and assess risk factors.
They study soil and rock quality, the land stability, potential for landslides and flooding, and seismic risk factors among others. They need to go into these factors before they can make a decision as to whether it is safe to build the structure at the site and also to decide on the materials to use and the style of construction. Students of civil and mining engineering need a good understanding of engineering geology to make informed decisions about various aspects of construction.
The book explains applied geology and geophysical methods and investigative practices to assess the suitability of the site for the type of construction being planned. The book also covers decisions about the design, construction, materials and the maintenance of the construction site.
Principles Of Engineering Geology provides a good foundation in this discipline, explaining various aspects like physical geology, rock structures, crystallography, stratigraphy and methods of conducting field work.
