Boost yourbottom line with the expert, efficient soil compaction techniquesand technological solutions in this fully updated Second Edition.This revision will provide the contractor, fill inspector, andgeotechnical engineer with greater coverage of environmentaltopics, including.
* Septic system site investigation, evaluation, design, andconstruction, plus existing system renovation, repair, maintenance, and management
* The latest uses of artificial fills from around the world--foamplastics, Elastizell, Geocell, Solite, and waste materials likeshredded tires and wood chips
* New material and helpful case studies on the correlation ofStandard and Modified Proctor densities and a method fordetermining numerical values of bearing capacities for Proctordensities
In addition to the current state of the art of fill technology, basic insights into soil behavior are provided. Innovative andpatented methods of design are presented, especially valuable foryoung practitioners and those responsible for their supervision andcontinuing education. Reviewed as "conversational," "humorous,""full of wisdom," and "practical," this unusually readable resourceis a profit-maker no construction professional can afford to dowithout.
