As every civil engineer knows, Portland Cement is the most versatile and important material of construction, and will probably remain so far into the future. Yet few books, if any, exist that offer an in-depth analysis of the mixing and testing methods of this vital hydraulic cement. This statement, written about the first edition of Engineered Concrete: Mix Design and Test Methods, remains as true today as it was ten years ago. Revised and updated, the second edition of this groundbreaking resource completely covers Portland Cement, Portland Cement Concrete, and their uses. See what’s new in the Second Edition: New coverage of the latest concrete technologies such as high-performance and lightweight concrete  + Several new tests and sample tearsheets + Additional and updated data sheets. The body of the book is divided into several sections, with the first explaining how concrete batches are designed, mixed, and measured for various consistencies. Another section details the tests of the primary component materials of concrete other than water—namely Portland Cement, aggregates, and mortar—while the final section includes some of the fundamental concrete testing procedures for different strength parameters in conformity with the standards of the American Society for Testing Materials. Solidly researched and written, the book supplies a fundamental understanding of cement, concrete, and mixing and testing methods that allow readers to produce the most economical combinations of concrete materials and satisfy performance requirements and specifications.

Triaxial testing of soils is required in geotechnical engineering in the design of specific projects and for studying and understanding the behaviour of soils. The triaxial test is the most suitable for such studies and is almost always chosen for studies of new phenomena because it is relatively simple - but also versatile. This authoritative, up to date and comprehensive manual on triaxial testing reflects current best practice and instrumentation and explains how to carry out triaxial tests to demonstrate the effects of engineering designs on soil behaviour. Soil testing is a crucial part of civil engineering but it is notoriously difficult to do soil tests properly. This manual explains how to carry out triaxial tests to demonstrate the effects of soil behaviour on engineering designs. An authoritative and comprehensive manual, it reflects current best practice and instrumentation.

Triaxial Testing of Soils is organized in a logical sequence beginning with the principles of triaxial testing in Chapter I, and the computations and presentations of test results (Chapter II). The triaxial equipment is explained in Chapter III, and instrumentation, measurements and control is reviewed in Chapter IV. Preparation of triaxial specimens is presented in Chapter V, and saturation of specimens is described in Chapter VI. The two testing stages in an experiment are made clear in Chapter VII: Consolidation and in Chapter VIII: Shearing. Chapter IX accounts for the corrections to the measurements, Chapter X informs about special tests and test conditions, and Chapter XI puts the results from triaxial tests in perspective by reviewing results from tests with three unequal principal stresses. References are given in Appendix A, and additional appendices are provided to explain special experimental techniques. References are made throughout to easily accessible articles in the literature and the book’s focus is on how to obtain high quality experimental results. Triaxial Testing of Soils is an invaluable reference for soil testing laboratories and consulting engineers will also use it for guidance on, for example, rates of loading and testing procedures for different soils. Academic researchers and post graduate students will appreciate the detailed discussions in the book and the descriptions of the equipment and procedures.

A step-by-step text on the basic tests performed in soil mechanics, Introduction to Soil Mechanics Laboratory Testing provides procedural aids and elucidates industry standards. It also covers how to properly present data and document results. Containing numerical examples and figures, the information presented is based on American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards, and US Army Corps of Engineers engineering manuals. The authors discuss the different methods of in situ field methods and ex situ laboratory methods of soil description and identification. They present equations for the physical properties of soil and laboratory methods of soil classification. They also discuss tests for the interaction of soil and water, and hydraulic conductivity and consolidation. These tests produce information useful in the identification and characterization of soil samples and their engineering behaviors. A comprehensive resource, the book describes the evaluation of physical properties of soils, including mass, weight, unit weight, and mass density of the soil mass and its component phases. These properties are then expanded to define a number of weight and volumetric relationships. The book also discusses tests used in the evaluation of the density-water content relationships in soils and in the evaluation of the quality of compaction operations. These features and more make this book an excellent guide for testing soils.

For more than 30 years, soil testing has been widely used as a basis for determining lime and fertilizer needs. Today, a number of procedures are used for determining everything from soil pH and lime requirement, to the level of extractable nutrient elements. And as the number of cropped fields being tested increases, more and more farmers and growers will come to rely on soil test results. But if soil testing is to be an effective means of evaluating the fertility status of soils, standardization of methodology is essential. No single test is appropriate for all soils. Soil Analysis Handbook of Reference Methods is a standard laboratory technique manual for the most commonly used soil analysis procedures. First published in 1974, this Handbook has changed over the years to reflect evolving needs. New test methods and modifications have been added, as well as new sections on nitrate, heavy metals, and quality assurance plans for agricultural testing laboratories. Compiled by the Soil and Plant Analysis Council, this latest edition of Soil Analysis Handbook of Reference Methods also addresses the major methods for managing plant nutrition currently in use in the United States and other parts of the world. For soil scientists, farmers, growers, or anyone with an interest in the environment, this reference will prove an invaluable guide to standard methods for soil testing well into the future.
