Description: For introductory geotechnical/soils courses in construction technology or civil engineering technology programs. Designed especially for those students who will probably NOT be taking further courses in soil mechanics or foundation engineering, this text uses only simple mathematics and an emphasis on applications to explore the nature of soils and how various soil materials may influence certain construction operations. An appendix of 11 laboratory testing exercises provides hands-on practice with basic principles and procedures.
