Geotechnical Engineering Unsaturated and Saturated Soils

Geotechnical Engineering Unsaturated and Saturated Soils 

Jean-Louis Briaud

Preference :

Geotechnical engineering is a young 100 years professional field dealing with soils within a few hundred meters of a planet’s surface for the purpose of civil engineering structures. For geotechnical engineers, soils can be defined as loosely bound to unbound, naturally occurring materials that cover the top few hundred meters of a planet. In contrast, rock is a strongly bound, naturally occurring material found within similar depths or deeper. At the boundary between soils and rocks are intermediate geo-materials. The classification tests and the range of properties described in this book help to distinguish between these three types of naturally occurring materials.
