The budding civil engineer should get a feel of mineralogy and petrology and how it affects material properties by going through the initial chapters of the book. Structures in the field are equally important in geotechnical engineering. The orientation of faults, joints and failure planes at the chosen site decides whether the dam, bridge, tunnel or for that matter any engineering structure is going to hang around for your grandchildren to marvel at!

The chapter on structural geology alerts the reader to these aspects. But before any construction starts, a study of the degree of weathering of the rocks and the type of soils present is important. The author has deftly integrated geological concepts into an engineering milieu and has brought out the importance of groundwater, rivers and oceans in shaping the land etching its geotechnical signature.

Catastrophic events like earthquakes and landslides are presented with clarity.

The author has ferreted out very valuable information from obscure research reports, with remarkable alacrity. Indian standards exist for construction in seismic areas-the IS The engineering geological site-investigation case studies are invaluable in gaining an understanding of the intricacies of the subject and GSI reports have been extensively cited by the author.

This book goes beyond the ambit of a conventional textbook and is capable of instilling the vitality and versatility of engineering geology in the intended audience.

The thought questions on each topic should prove invaluable t o s t u d e n t s t o t e s t t h e i r understanding. The book is designed and printed well, but a serif font would have been easier on the eye. The paper quality is not too good but probably makes the book affordable.

The labelling within figures are often sketchy or altogether absent. I would unreservedly recommend this book to both novices and practitioners of engineering geology, with a special interest in the Indian setting.

In recent years, exploration and researches for Atomic Minerals have gained appreciable momentum. Your name. Close Send.
