Site investigation is the crucial first step in design and construction, when the cost and practicality of a project are evaluated. It is also a necessary part of the investigation of building failures. This major reference work describes the organization of site investigation, the plant, sampling equipment and interpretation of results. The second edition includes new material on specification and procurement, desk studies on geophysics, sample disturbance and sampling methods, in–situ testing and laboratory testing.
