Get this from a library. Engineering geology case histories [George A Kiersch; Arthur B Cleaves; Wm Mansfield Adams; Howard J Pincus; Harry F Ferguson; Geological Society of America. Division of Engineering Geology.;]. This volume is a collection of general case histories on dams, tunnels, highways, and underground construction.

Indeed, the Baldwin Hills reservoir failure is another in a long list of cases which demonstrate why the geologic environment, features, and circumstances are of major concern to engineering works. It includes such recent events as the Loma Prieta earthquake as well as the Mississippi River floods.

Case histories and additional worked examples and problems are included to give students a more thorough and current knowledge base from which to learn the principle components of engineering by: Prepared for the Division on Engineering Geology of the Geological Society of America, Engineering Case Histories 2 includes 11 case histories covering tunnel construction, foundation grouting, dam-site studies, landslide causes, and more.

Engineering Geology Books. for the purposes of engineering design and construction requires knowledge of geological engineering and engineering geology, leading to integrated engineering solutions which take into account both ground conditions and environment.

The authors are drawn from many different countries and the case histories. The “International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories” covers the broad area of practice in geotechnical engineering (soils and rocks), geotechnical earthquake engineering, environmental geotechnics and engineering geology.

This book is written for undergraduate and post-graduate students of engineering geology. It is hoped that this will also be of value to those involved in the profession, especially at the earlier stages of their careers.

Introduction The journal is an international medium for the publication of original studies, case histories, and comprehensive reviews in the field of engineering geology. Included are all geological studies that can be relevant to engineering, environmental concerns and safety. seeking the assistance of experienced engineering ge-ologists and other professionals; and (4) reviewing and studying similar case histories.

BIBLIOGRAPHY [ 1] Glossary of Geology, American Geological Institute third edition, American Geological Institute, Falls Church, VA.,page Each chapter is supported by a large number of richly illustrated case histories.

This book will prove to be a valuable textbook for senior undergraduates and postgraduates in environmental and applied geophysics, a supplementary course book for students of geology, engineering geophysics, civil and mining engineering, and a reference work for Cited by: "Forensic Engineering will be of great value to expert witnesses." --CALIFORNIA GEOLOGY "Practicing engineers and geologists will find the case histories very helpful to their work.
