Product Description


…manages to touch upon almost all major areas of work encountered by today's geotechnical engineer, covering investigation methods for both regional and site-specific assessments.
-Stuart Mills, Materials World, Vol. 14, No. 9, Semptember 2006
Whoever reads this book will never approach geotechnical exploration in the same way again. Nowhere else has it been made so evident that all boundaries among engineering geology, geophysics, rock mechanics, soil mechanics, geohydrology, seismology, and a host of other disciplines are meaningless; that contributions to the solution of geotechnical problems may come from any or all of these sources; or that the practitioner who holds too narrowly to a specialty is likely to overlook knowledge that could be of the greatest benefit to him in reaching a proper judgment. If for no other reason than to appreciate the breadth of geotechnics and to escape from the trap of too narrow a perspective, this book should be read.
-Dr. Ralph B. Peck, from the Foreword to theFirst Edition

An update of the first (1984) edition, this hefty tome covers an enormous breadth of material, drawn from both geology and civil engineering disciplines. …The text is complemented by more than 180 tables and 800 illustrations (33 of them in color), and each chapter concludes with a copious list of bibliographic citations. A thorough, 47-page index completes the volume.
-Roy E. Hunt, Civil Engineering, Vol. 75, No. 11, Nov. 2005

This is pure gold in 'nuts and bolts' of the profession. Hunt's title and prefatory materials proclaim that this is a book written primarily for geotechnical engineers, yet any astute engineering geologist will not only understand its content and impact, but will also be able to 'read between the line' and learn more of the perspective of each topic. …The book content will be highly valuable throughout a project, from planning through conduct, during daily review of incoming field results, and during evaluation and interpretation. …To paraphrase the American Express Company, 'Don't leave home without Hunt's book!
-Allen W. Hatheway, Environmental & Engineering Geoscience, Vol. 12, No. 1, Feb. 2006
