A most excellentbook for geologists and engineersBy Nicholas Ryland BartonThisbeautifully illustrated text book has everything an engineeringgeologist and those with a wide interest in civil engineering couldwish for. The content of `Geological Engineering' is a suitablereminder of the huge range of disciplines and engineering problemsthat are expected to be tackled during the career of experiencedinternational consultants, by international civil engineeringdesign offices, by earth science researchers, and by graduatestudents starting out in this fascinating but challenging majorbranch of science and engineering. All the back-ground needed forthose engaged in foundations, slopes, tunnels, dams and reservoirsand earth structures can be found here. This book is an authorisedtranslation and significantly updated version of Vallejo's andFerrer's Spanish edition of 2002, with expert technical review byan English professor. Most of the contributing authors are alsofrom universities in Madrid, and sincere congratulations are duefrom all future users of this book. Undoubtedly, it is going toprove to be one of the very best broad-reference books for a verylarge number of educators, geologists, engineering geologists, soilmechanics and rock mechanics specialists, and hydro-geologists. Itis the wealth of very informative diagrams, figures and interestingphotographs, which make this book so desirable to possess. There ismaterial to interest `everyone' who has curiosity about the naturalterrain and man-made structures around us. Congratulations to theauthors, to the editors, and to the producers of this landmarkpublication.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.Excellent ReferenceBy Sajjad from AECOM SINGAPOREA well written,well documented and well illustrated book I ever came across. Thisreference book got everything from soil mechnics to rock mechnaics.The examples and dicussion are practical. Being a practicingengineer this book got all the tools you need. I would recommededto have this book in your reference collection. Good Job.0 of 0people found the following review helpful. excellently-written bookdoes a a very fine job of describing the differences between thevarious flavors ...By Dr. Edmund Medley, P.E., C.E.G.I was asked toreview this book by the publishers. That was 2 to 3 years ago. Asit turns out, I couldn't write my review because Dr Allen Hathawaybeat me to it (Env. and Eng.Geoscience. vol XVIII, no. 2, May 2012,pp 209-210). So here is my belated substitute Review- the only oneI have written for , I think.I am a Geological Engineer. I can saythat with unabashed certainty, given I have an education inGeological Engineering (UBC, 1978) and subsequent professionalcareer. I also have degrees in Geotechnical Engineering, So, Iunderstand the difference between Geological and GeotechnicalEngineering- at least as they are practised in the USA. Except herethere are almost no Geological Engineers- instead the defaultdiscipline is Engineering Geology. Once upon a time, especially inCanada,Geological Engineers practised Geotechnical Engineering,Rock Engineering, Engineering Geology. Groundwater Engineering,etc. Indeed: few geoprofessionals (particularly Geotechs)understand what a Geological Engineer is anymore (see my opinionsathttp://edmedley.com/blog/2011/02/06/engineering-geologists-ne-geological-engineers/).Nowadays,the fields are regrettably represented by a myriad of specializedpublications.This gorgeously produced, excellently-written bookdoes a a very fine job of describing the differences between thevarious flavors of Geological Engineering as it was, and has becometoda, covering the salient technical background for them all. As Ilook at my several hundred professional books, I wonder if I shouldnot just give them all away and stick with this book.I jest ofcourse... Nevertheless i cannot find the equal of this book on mywell-stocked shelves,The book covers the field superbly. It wouldmake an excellent reference for professional Engineering Geologistsand Geotechnical Engineers - for the then to understand what theother is trying to say). It would be an apt and economical textbook. Being a hardback, it is remarkable value - I am teaching acourse in Engineering Geology where the required Earth Sciencestext is a $150 paperback (although it too is a lovely book).Iparticularly liked the abundant color images and the cleargraphics. For a book written in Spanish and then translated intoItalian and English, I could find no jarring syntax errors. It iscrammed with reference to practical experience. My only criticismis an old man's comment there is no apparent reference to the useof stereo-photos. It is all well and good that there is anabundance of satellite imagery available nowadays, but in myopinion, not looking at aerial images in stereo vision is not goodenough.There are many references, Although there is a Europeanemphasis to the book (and units arr SI), I found the "regionality"not at all distracting. i like travel, so learning about geologicalproblems elsewhere in the world was a treat.Bottom line: this isindeed one of the few books that I insist"belongs on your shelf" ifyou are an Engineering Geologist or a Geotechnical Engineer curiousabout how the Other Half lives.
A thorough knowledge of geology is essential in the design andconstruction of infrastructures for transport, buildings and miningoperations; while an understanding of geology is also crucial forthose working in urban, territorial and environmental planning andin the prevention and mitigation of geohazards.GeologicalEngineering provides an interpretation of the geological setting,integrating geological conditions into engineering design andconstruction, and provides engineering solutions that take intoaccount both ground conditions and environment.This textbook,extensively illustrated with working examples and a wealth ofgraphics, covers the subject area of geological engineering in foursections:Fundamentals: soil mechanics, rock mechanics andhydrogeologyMethods: site investigations, rock masscharacterization and engineering geological mappingApplications:foundations, slope stability, tunnelling, dams and reservoirs andearth worksGeohazards: landslides, other mass movements, earthquakehazards and prevention and mitigation of geological hazardsAs wellas being a textbook for graduate and postgraduate students andacademics, Geological Engineering serves as a basic reference forpracticing engineering geologists and geological and geotechnicalengineers, as well as civil and mining engineers dealing withdesign and construction of foundations, earth works and excavationsfor infrastructures, buildings, and mining operations.
Looking through the book and thinking of the huge effort requiredto obtain all the information, followed by processing it so thatthe ideas and data can be presented with such clarity, and then toactually write the book and prepare the self-explanatory diagramsis truly more than impressive: it is an outstanding achievement.Another excellent feature is that it is simultaneously anundergraduate, post-graduate, and practicalbook.â€•John A. Hudson, Emeritus Professor,Imperial College, UK; nbsp;Past-President, International Societyfor Rock Mechanics, 2007-2011 With Geological Engineering LuisGonzaacute;lez de Vallejo and Mercedes Ferrer succeeded in offeringa standard work, of interest for a wide group of users, in a broadrange of geologically differing areas, as a support in theapplication of geology to research, design and construction incivil engineering.â€•Floris Schokking, GeoConsultB.V., Haarlem This beautifully illustrated text book has everythingan engineering geologist and those with a wide interest in civilengineering could wish for. The content of Geological Engineeringis a suitable reminder of the huge range of disciplines andengineering problems that are expected to be tackled during thecareer of experienced international consultants, by internationalcivil engineering design offices, by earth science researchers, andby graduate students starting out in this fascinating butchallenging major branch of science and engineering. All theback-ground needed for those engaged in foundations, slopes,tunnels, dams and reservoirs and earth structures can be foundhere.Undoubtedly, it is going to prove to be one of the very bestbroad-reference books for a very large number of educators,geologists, engineering geologists, soil mechanics and rockmechanics specialists, and hydro-geologists. It is truly animpressive production.Congratulations to the authors, to theeditors, and to the producers of this landmarkpublication.â€•Dr. Nick Barton The manyillustrations enable this text to provide a unique means ofcommunication to its readers, unmatched by other texts in thefield, because they impart a sense of the scale and variabilitythat have to be addressed when working in the subject. This is acontribution to geotechnical engineering that willnbsp; support andimprove the teaching and application of Engineering Geology foryears to come.â€•Michael H. de Freitas, ReaderEmeritus in Engineering Geology, Imperial College, London,UKVallejo and Ferrer (2011) have come forth with a basic bookdefining the 90-year emerged body of knowledge with which everygraduate geological engineer should befamiliar.â€•Allen W. Hatheway in EnvironmentalEngineering Geoscience, Vol. XVIII, No. 2, May 2012, pp.209-215About the AuthorLuis I.
