Focusing on learning how to solve real-world problems, this practical introduction to engineering geology covers such standard topics as stress, the stability of rock slopes, groundwater flow, and seismology. Requires knowledge of pre-calc math only.Provides theory, worked-out examples, and ample end-of-chapter problem sets to aid readers in their understanding and mastery of the material. Examines a full range of topics, including the bulk density, porosity, and subsidence of rock; sound wave surveying principles; and the law of radioactive. Uses 'pure' SI units, displays virtually all steps in a calculation, and presents dimensionally correct equations throughout. Alerts readers to such ambiguous engineering terms as 'flow', and 'load' with an icon warning flag signaling that the meaning must be inferred from context or the units in which it is used.For those preparing for licensing exams in engineering geology, civil engineering, or environmental engineering.
