Now in full colour, the third edition of this well-established book provides a readable and highly illustrated overview of the aspects of geology that are most significant to civil engineers. Sections in the book describe the main features of bedrock geology, the processes and sediments of surface geology, relevant methods of ground investigation, and main features of the significant geohazards. It therefore takes the reader from the basics of geology through to a better understanding of the ''difficult ground conditions'' so often encountered on engineering projects. Each of the 40 topics is presented as double page spread with a careful mix of text, diagrams and photographs, with tabulated reference material on parameters such as bearing strengths of soils and rocks. This new edition of Foundations of Engineering Geology has been fully updated to create an overview that covers the entire spectrum of topics of interest for both students and practitioners in the field of civil engineering.
