9780415469098: Practical Engineering Geology (Applied Geotechnics)

Steve Hencher presents a broad and fresh view on the importance of engineering geology to civil engineering projects.

Practical Engineering Geology provides an introduction to the way that projects are managed, designed and constructed and the ways that the engineering geologist can contribute to cost-effective and safe project achievement. The need for a holistic view of geological materials, from soil to rock, and of geological history is emphasised. Chapters address key aspects of

  • Geology for engineering and ground modelling
  • Site investigation and testing of geological materials
  • Geotechnical parameters
  • Design of slopes, tunnels, foundations and other engineering structures
  • Identifying hazards
  • Avoiding unexpected ground conditions

The book is illustrated throughout with case examples and should prove useful to practising engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers and to MSc level students of engineering geology and other geotechnical subjects.

About the Author:

Steve Hencher is a Director of consulting engineers Halcrow and Research Professor of Engineering Geology at the University of Leeds.

Review:

"... Hencher has penned a book on his experiences that provides insights for students, young professionals and seasoned pros working in engineering geology...The excellent book provides practical solutions and example methodologies to address engineering geology challenges which are worthwhile for those practicing in the field. This book is highly recommended for practicing engineering geologists in America who would like to learn about the geoengineering challenges found in other parts of the world and the innovative solutions offered."
―The Professional Geologist, 2014

"This book meets its stated aims and should be required reading for aspiring young engineering geologists, or their seniors, to help make them aware of their roles and responsibilities. It would do no harm for this book to be read also by geotechnical engineers who need to be clear about the geologist’s role in the project team."
―Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology

"The perspective, depth, and detail contained in Hencher’s Practical Engineering Geology make it highly desirable for all practicing engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers to have in their libraries. .... a must have volume. ... Hencher’s book has plenty of content for all serious engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers."
–– Environmental & Engineering Geoscience

"Each chapter contains straightforward didactic boxes that focus either on a case in point, good working practices or key terms of relevance to each topic."
––Environmental Earth Sciences
