Questions about the Earth continue to haunt engineers. For instance: What do we know about our ancient planet? How should we be using it? And what are the best technologies and strategies to sustain us? Earth Engineering provides the background necessary to analyze these questions as well as perspectives, principles, and practices to guide your understanding of geoengineering problems. Scientists, engineers, regulators, designers, constructors, educators and students will find this book especially useful when considering challenges tied to civil engineering, construction, and mining. Written in simple language, this reference guide covers many areas, including • how the Earth began and developed over 4.6 billion years ago; • • how the Earth began and developed over 4.6 billion years ago; • how to use site investigations to mitigate planning omissions and design errors; • how to cope with variable subsurface strata and building challenges; • how to approach geologic uncertainty and analyze problems on varying terraine; • how to handle environmental regulations and legal considerations. You will treasure this broad collection and overview of geoengineering perspectives, principles, and practices. Enhance your knowledge and troubleshoot common problems with the knowledge, tools, and strategies you will fi nd in the extensive repertoire of topics and concise illustrations in Earth Engineering.

This text discusses important principles and techniques that are of use to practicing civil engineers. This edition incorporates significant changes in design and construction practices, specifically in design specifications for structural materials, buildings and bridges, environmental and other federal regulations such as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA). Up-to-date code changes from such groups as the American Concrete Institute, American Society for Testing and Materials, American Institute of Steel Construction and National Design Specification for Wood Construction are also covered.
