David J. Environmental and Engineering Geoscience ;; 17 3 : — As Norbury so correctly points out on numerous occasions, we the geotechnical community have suffered from being fractured pun intended in our approach to the field description of geomaterials.

Geotechnical engineering , also known as geotechnics , is the branch of civil engineering concerned with the engineering behavior of earth materials. It uses the principles and methods of soil mechanics and rock mechanics for the solution of engineering problems and the design of engineering works. It also relies on knowledge of geology , hydrology , geophysics , and other related sciences. Geotechnical engineering is important in civil engineering, but also has applications in military , mining , petroleum , coastal , ocean , and other engineering disciplines that are concerned with construction occurring on the surface or within the ground, both onshore and offshore. The fields of geotechnical engineering and engineering geology are closely related, and have large areas of overlap. However, while geotechnical engineering is a specialty of civil engineering , engineering geology is a specialty of geology : they share the same principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics, but may differ in terms of objects, scale of application, and approaches.
SARD — Field guidance sheets and logging proforma sheets David has agreed to make some of the most critical and useful sheets for good logging practice freely available. He has also made available a number of logging proformae to assist those who do not have such sheets available in their organisation. Whilst sure that most practitioners have access to sample and core logging sheets, many will not be familiar with the requirements of logging in trial pits, tunnels or carrying out scanline logging. These guidance and proforma sheets can be downloaded from the list below. Guidance abstracted from BS giving all the terms needed for a soil description in the right word order and with their definitions. Any practitioner logging in the field should be using this table or similar.
Soil Pdf 5 see Table 1. Access this data and other resources here: Alberta soil information — Resources. The procedures contained in this document are to be used by field. Most plants require a steady supply of water, and it is obtained from the soil. Collect soil from 20 or more spots within each area, mixing these samples in a clean plastic bucket.

This is a revised and updated edition of the highly successful first and second editions. In the intervening period the procedures used in the description of soils and rocks have continued to develop and evolve and this new edition incorporates changes in the international standards EN ISO and and those resulting in the national standard, BS and the amendment thereof. Significant changes in rock description are included — the reintroduction of the Approaches 1 to 5 for rock weathering; Approach 1 for description and Approaches 2 to 5 Rock Weathering Working Party for classification when appropriate and helpful. Also covered is the reintroduction of the
Но вы добились своей цели, - словно со стороны услышала Сьюзан собственный голос, - Вы создали ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Казалось, Стратмор ее не слышал. - В последние несколько лет наша работа здесь, в агентстве, становилась все более трудной. Мы столкнулись с врагами, которые, как мне казалось, никогда не посмеют бросить нам вызов. Я говорю о наших собственных гражданах.
Хейл наклонил голову набок, явно заинтригованный такой скрытностью. И, как бы желая обратить все в игру, сделал еще один шаг. Но он не был готов к тому, что произошло в следующее мгновение. Сохраняя ледяное спокойствие, Сьюзан ткнула указательным пальцем в твердокаменную грудь Хейла и заставила его остановиться.
This course will provide the background to logging materials encountered on site in order that the descriptions are useful, communicable and accurate.
