"Overall, the manual does an excellent job in presenting the principles of soil mechanics and the laboratory experiments." — Dr. Mohammad Najafi, PE, Director, Trenchless Research & Development Center; Visiting Associate Professor, University of Missouri, Columbia

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Toni S. Harris on May 17, 2000
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because it was the required lab manual for a Soils Testing Class at the University I attend. The authors went into great detail in describing each lab and all the equipment used to perform the tests. However, as a student I would have hoped to know how to decipher the results of the test to come up with a useable solution to apply to real life construction applications. For example, if I find during a test that my soil is non plastic, how can I find out what kind of foundation to use to build a structure on the soil? I feel like the chapters should have gone at least one step further in their explanations.

I was a TA for Soil-Lab while I was not even a geotechnical graduate student. This book has lots of details (sometimes overwhelmingly) and undergrad students may have difficulties to find basic steps toward some tests. In addition, I couldn't find data sheet files to print them out for students' use and I had to carbon-copy the pages from the book.
All in all, it is a professional book, not just an educational over-simplified textbook.

Lab books are all the same! This lab book is nothing different then my other soils lab books.
All the experiments are the same and the only difference in the test is that every instructor's interest on the behavior of soil will vary. Meaning they will omit one test for another based on their emphasis of importance of soil.
A good professor will have a descent lab that has a wide variety of different regional soil samples for the students to test.
I was truly amazed at my soil's lab diversity in samples. My Professor had soil samples from many different states from across the United States and other countries.
This made the lab experiments very interesting and allowed all the results to be different between students and the analysis according to each soil's characteristic behavior.
