An appendix of laboratory testing exercises provides hands-on practice with basic principles and procedures.Some of the key features include: Expanded overview of the geology of soils and rocks. Improved classification aids for the Unified system. More complete description of borrow and fill calculations. Description of OSHA's requirements for trench safety and configuration. New description of pile driving and driven pile design and testing. Breakout of all of the examples so students can more readily follow the methods of problem solving. Addition of SI units to some of the calculations.Dickenson, Stephen is the author of 'Soils in Construction', published 2003 under ISBN 9780130489173 and ISBN 0130489174.
